Mike Severns took us to the back side of Molokini crater where the
visibility was excellent and there was a great deal of variety in butterfly
fish.  The wall has interesting cut outs  and interesting crevices for
critters to hide from years past when sea levels were lower and lots of
coral.  We also saw a variety of nudibranch such as red and blue dragon. 
There was also a nice lobster hiding. The wall is quite vertical so its a
nice view into the abyss.

The second dive of the day took us to St. Anthonys Wreck which is in about
65' of water. The vessel seems to attract green sea turtles as there were
about 5 large ones there either resting on deck or in the hole and they
periodically head up for air.  Its kind of like an aircraft carrier for sea
turtles.  The visibility here is a bit silty so it wasn't very clear for
photography.  We also saw a red frogfish, several large trumpetfish, lots
of sargeat majors and butterfly fish.  It's an interesting site with plenty
of marine life to observe.

Mike Severns guides give great briefings, are patient in finding and
showing critters if you are interested, and help with all your gear.  They
have great drinks and snacks as well.
