I chose Ohana East due to previous reports in Undercurrent, and was happy
with the choice. From my ocean view room I could actually see the ocean. I
was able to make my own meals, which was a great - I get tired of
restaurant food. Stocked up on food at a supermaket on day one.

Oahu Scuba Divers advertises service with a difference. You choose the
sites you'd like to dive, and Lisa and Roger find a charter boat to take
you there (they don't have their own boat). You can rent gear from OSD if
you need to, I had my own. Tanks filled to 3000PSI. I requested the Corsair
wreck, and dived it on the first day. Roger pointed out octopus, a
stingray, morays and a type of shell that burrows along the sand bottom. 

OSD picks you up from your hotel, and takes you and your gear to whichever
marina the boat is leaving from. Three of the four days of diving were with
the ENZO, great boat and captain.  Either Lisa or Roger will divemaster,
and you get a detailed site description, wildlife guide and photographer
all in one.

We also dived the Sea Tiger, Turtle canyon, Kawalo pipe, and Spitting cave,
and a few more sites. The current on the YO was screaming, so that dive was
redirected to the Sea Tiger again, where we saw a turtle napping inside the
wheelhouse. Lots of sharks, endemic Hawaiian fish, and turtles overall.

At the end of the morning dive, Lisa and Roger had a very nice picnick
lunch prepared complete with tablecloth and napkins. Two days we ate on
shore, the other day on the boat between morning and afternoon boat dives.
Lots of water, juice and snacks also provided by OSD. At the end of the
day, you get dropped off at your hotel again.

Lisa and Roger are the nicest folks to dive and chat with. They even had
Hawaiin tree and flower guidebooks, and gave helpful hints on where to find
topside attractions too. I can't recommend them highly enough. I feel like
I have friends on Oahu now!
