Did 2 dives , which included the infamous Manta Night dive. These guys were
great and attentive. We saw a pod of dolphins motoring out to the dive site
. The same site is used for both the late afternoon dive and the night
dive. On the afternoon dive we observed a field of cane garden eels, a leaf
scorpion fish and 2 large manta rays along with other typical Hawaiian fish
like butterflies, Moorish idols and parrot fish . There are no corals here.

The Night dive is worth the money and shelling out 72.00 for the video . 10
mantas showed up and really gave us a show , along with Frank the eel
.Bring your own snacks unless you like ham subs and Doritos. The large boat
was uncrowded and allowed an easy entry .
    Warning: For diver bringing their own equipment : my large night dive
light was stolen by TSA at the Kona airport on the way home.
