Boat holds max twelve divers broken into two groups of six based on
experience.  The boat has a marine head and plenty of room although lacking
in dry storage area.  Leaving the small boat harbor in Kehei at 6:15 am
gets divers into water early before trade winds affect visibility.  There
is a large selection of food items and drinks so you don't need breakfast
before the early departure.  Three tank dives include lunch.  DM's speak to
each individual to accommodate special interests/requests and diver
ability.  DM Warren gave detailed site specific briefings and took time
under water to ensure all divers had an opportunity to see critters -
including day octopus nest and eggs.  Warrens enthusiasm for rare critter
siting is contagious underwater as was the case when a reticulated
butterflyfish swam by.   Always on the lookout for large marine mammals
either en route to dive sites or during surface intervals kept things
moving and fun between dives.  On one surface interval the boat captain
googled items of interest from his cell phone.  Last dive of three tank
dive day visibility dropped to about 40 feet. I did not make time to look
at Mike Severns web page before trip and wish I had as it contains good
descriptions of their dive sites and specialty dives.
