After one dive, I realized that my camera had disappeared. I had clipped it
to my guages, but one of the clips was broke. They went in to look for it,
but no luck. I appreciated their efforts. (It was thinking that it was time
for a new camera - now I was sure of it!)

We dove with Mike Severns for two days on Maui. They leave very early to
get out to Molokini before the hoards of dive boats and snorkelers. They
have very yummy treats on board  the cinnamon rolls are to die for. Their
dive briefings are very detailed  entrance/exit, dive site geography, and
most importantly, lots of info on what type of fish and critters that
youll see.

We dove many different sites around Molokini  seeing lots of White Tip and
Gray Reef sharks. The back wall is an incredible wall dive. After our 3
tank dive, the trip back from Molokini to the harbor was a wild trip  they
hand out rain jackets which you definitely need.

We also dove 85 foot Pinnacle and La Perouse on one of the 3 tank dive
days. More sharks and lots of big morays. Also, lots of Pacific tropicals 
including a pretty rare Flame Angelfish and Reticulated Butterflyfish. The
divemasters are great at spotting lots of cool stuff and make sure that
everyone can see them.
