Comments Last years chap book had many good reports re Mike Severns diving and they were all true if not understated. Pauline and her crew are an outstanding group who love what they do and want to share the underwater beauty with us. Besides the standard safety briefing, they have an instructional briefing on critters that we will see if we stay close to the dive leaders. If we want to wander off on our own, that's fine, just keep the group in sight. We dove with them for 4 days in a row and just kept our gear on the boat where they rinsed everything off and it was ready for us the next morning. They do want us at the boat ramp at 6:15am for paperwork. The boats are trailered to the boat ramp and brought out after we get back about 11:30. The trade winds really picked up making for rough seas. They provide rain jackets which are greatly appreciated in the wind and spray. We stayed walking distance at the Kihei Kai Nani condos. Nice not having to drive every morning. Good snorkeling within walking distance.
