Comments This is a top quality dive company. Really friendly and cusotmer oriented. Their boat is in great shape. The dive guides new alot and were earger to share. I wish I would have brought a hood for the Manta night dive. As for the Manta dive, it is one of the most awesome experiences of my life. I took 40 minutes of video and hardly had to edit it. We had 5 show up at our dive. Saw a Tiger shark, a few dolphins in the distance, and lots of turtles and tons of eels. I have dove Maui and Lanai but they don't compare to the big island. Stayed in a condo and it was nice. Did the volcano thing. We only stayed for 9 nights. The next time we go to the big island we will dive with this company again.
