This was the most enjoyable diving experience we have had in Maui. Our dive
instructor, Renee took the time to find out what our experience level was,
asked us if we had any special requests and did everything to accommodate
us with the types of dives we were looking for. We saw tons of local fish,
rare Kona crabs, frog fish, sea turtles, rays, reef sharks.  We did a
little cave diving and a lot of stopping and looking.  We were most
impressed with Renee's leisurely attitude.  We didn't have to meet before
the crack of dawn; we didn't have to hurry up and get dressed; or hurry up
and get in the water; or hurry up and get out; and then hurry up and get
lost. We were actually treated with kindness and respect. This is something
that I feel is sorely missing in the dive industry. Renee is also extremely
knowledgeable about the ocean and the environment.  She kept a keen eye
open for safety issues but allowed us to have lots of fun. I can't say
enough about her other than we enjoyed our day so much we quickly booked
her for another and we had another great day. Octopus Reef, Kihei, HI
