We dove from Ulua Beach. There was a great amount of macro subjects and
turtles, but if you're looking to shoot larger fish, you may want to look
elsewhere on the island...

Originally, we had booked w/ Rene at Octopus Reef, but she had some back
trouble and couldn't dive, so she graciously made alternate arrangements
for my wife and I with Rachael at Maui Dreams. 

Rachael was FABULOUS! One of the best guided dive experiences we've had to
date. Talking and setting up with her was almost as fun as the dives
themselves. We felt she was as excited to be there as we were - it was
really great to come across her kind of genuine enthusiasm. She was also
very patient and thorough, and made sure that we were properly weighted and
trimmed for sea water (we dive mostly fresh water). 

Based on Rachael's recommendations, we dove with her off of Ulua beach in
southern Maui and the facilities were excellent: close parking, showers and
restrooms, and a nice grassy area to set-up and hang out between dives that
was very close to the water. 

My wife had wanted to see some turtles and Rachael (not to mention the
Pacific Ocean) did not disappoint. Not only did we see a couple turtles,
but we saw about 8 of them in varying sizes - from small juveniles to a
HUGE turtle that I had to swim away from in order to get all of it framed
in the photo. 

Rachael was even generous and provided us with some photos that she took of
us during the dive. 

Our only disappointment was that we opted to dive later in our trip - so we
didn't have any extra time to dive w/ Rachael again. But she'll be one of
our first calls when we return to Maui. 

Rachael and Maui Dreams get 2 thumbs up - WAY up...
