As you can tell, I've been having quite a summer diving in fun locations. I
chose Maui Dreams due to Undercurrent reviews. When I went on their
website, my eyes were drawn to Scooter Diving, which was a great choice. 

I met Rachel at the shop, got tanks and weights squared away, and followed
her truck and the scooters to Keawapaku Beach. Parking fills up early, but
we were there at 8am to catch the less windy part of the day.

After a briefing on how to use the scooter and review of safety
proceedures, we geared up and waded out. In about 5 ft of water Rachel
showed me how to hop on the scooter, and start and stop (this model you
hold between your knees, and fly like Superman underwater). Satisfied that
I'd got the hang of it, Rachel then took me on a tour of the reef  and
headed out to the St Anthony wreck. Normally this could be a 45 minute swim
out, but on the scooter it took 8 minutes max. Very James Bondish to arrive
at the wreck, put down the scooters in the sand, and swim around the divers
off a dive boat who were also doing the wreck. Heh heh. Shaken, not

The second dive was a mystery location, some reeflet jutting off the sand
plain, covered in fish and invertebrates. Eels, leaf scorpionfish, school
of bannerfish, and so on. This was a meditative 77 minute dive, and we
still had air to spare. Rachel is a great guide, knows lots about the local
fish life. Yes, I'd do it again.
