Mike Severns runs a nice operation with modest size groups (we had about 12
on the boat.  The took us to the inside of Molokini Crater and gave a very
thorough briefing of the fish action we could witness.  The dive guides are
very attentive, almost obsessive, with finding and showing macro critters. 
We were blessed with about a 7' Manta from the moment we entered the water
and it cruised around our area for a good amount of the dive offering good
photo op in the clear, well lit water. While the manta was buzzing around a
small white tip shark came up the sand from the depths.  Nice coral and
sand bottom rolling topography.  Lots of large garden eels in the sand

On the second stop of our two tank trip we dove an area in south Maui off
"Little Beach" and it must have been turtle day as we saw 15-20
green sea turtles, many at cleaning stations.  We also saw several large
white mouth moray eels amongst the coral.  The current was a bit swift so
that added some fun to the dive.  Mike Severns has great dive guides that
are very thorough and do all your gear.  The have good coffee, fruit, juice
and cookies as well.
