Comments  
Patrice Heller at Pacific Rim was great. She pointed out lots of critters
and fish. We saw the biggest turtle I have ever seen right under the boat.
Patrice found frog fish, goat fish, white mouth moray, yellow margin moray
and garden eels at a reef right outside the boat channel which had large
groups of dolphins swimming around the boat. The second dive was at Golden
Arches. There was a good current here. Nice arches. We saw peacock grouper,
flame angel fish, yellowtail coris, crown of thorns and a dragon wrasse.
Capt. Walt was very helpful. The snacks in between dives were great. I
would highly recommend Pacific Rim. On the downside they use a small boat
with no head. When not diving the snorkeling along Alli' Drive in Kona is
great. There are a few spots to go to when not diving.
