Good selection of macro life and pelagics.  Lacks soft coral color, but
immense, healthy hard coral as far as the eye can see.  Good selection of
very unique creatures.

Some of the biggest and healthiest hard coral we've seen. On Maui, Molokini
Crater, and Lanai.  Lots of sharks, saw black tips, white tips, grays, and
galapagos sharks on one dive on the back wall of the crater.   Mantas seen
frequently.  A number of orange frogfish, and a painted yellow frogfish. 
First time to see a helmet gunard, in 30 feet of water off of Cliff House
reef.  Plenty of good macro life, also.  Nudibranchs,  bloe dragons, and
either a pygmy wrasse or a yellowtail coris.

Stayed at the northwest end of Maui in Kapalua, which is farther away from
the Crater, but closer to Lanai and some good shore/shallow dives on the
north end.   AA Vacations had an all you can golf special at Kapalua, so we
got in a lot of golf, also.  Hard a large villa with an extra large porch
with a garden hose, great for rinsing equipment.
