Comments 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 808-876-0183
