If you dive the Kona coast, you will have a difficult time finding a more
dedicated, knowledgeable, FUN dive operation.   Patrice, (in charge) Dave
and Carlos are savvy, witty, and experienced.    Patrice, especially, works
as hard as any divemaster weve encountered to find the critters for you,
and with her ever on-hand slate,  lets you know what you are seeing,
immediately.  An amazing show was when she picked up a sea cucumber, and
carefully dug a small crab out of the anal opening to show us, then
carefully put him back and replaced the cucumber!   From years of diving
the area, she knows where everybody lives or can be found at all the
sites.  Divers are free to go it on their own, though, if they prefer. 
(Youll miss a lot!)  She is also very sensitive to currents,  and careful
to go elsewhere if conditions are not conducive to good diving.- - - And
the refreshments!  Best ever, including great deli wraps one day, brownies
to die for every day,  a variety of fruit, nuts, chips, etc., and a new
(for us) snack  - - green soy beans in the pod,  to which we became
addicted.  Crunchy and delicious! - - -  The like-new boat takes a maximum
of six divers,  has a shaded area,  and is well equipped for safety and
comfort.  - - - We recommend Pacific Rim for maximum diving enjoyment!
