They have a small area on board near the front to store camera.  They are
very careful handling your  cameras and rinse off them off  with fresh
water after each dive.

Have gone diving with Pauline & co. many times before.  As expected,
they did a terrific job with the predive info.  They told us what they were
going to look for and what we might see.  They provide snacks & drinks
& fresh water rinse on board.  They also provide dry jackets to wear if
it gets a little wet on the boat ride.
When it was too rough to go out to Molokini, they headed south to La
Perouse (a long ride) because they knew it would be calmer.
On this trip they had more newly certified divers than when I went with
them previously.
They didn't change their itinerary for them, but make sure they were
comfortable & safe and helped them with whatever they needed.
In 20+ yrs of diving in Maui this was the coldest water I have experienced
here.  I normally dive with a 3mm wetsuit, but had to borrow a 7mm.  It was
73 degrees & they said it had been as cold as 70 this winter.
I saw several different nudibranchs that I had not seen before.   I also
saw about 100 bristle worms on a shore dive which I hadn't seen before
also.  Saw leaf fish, lionfish, anthias, octopus, harlequin shrimp, lots of
turtles; also saw humpback whales while on the boat.
My wife & I are never disappointed when diving with Severns.
