Comments We made three boat dives and 3 shore dives with Prodiver--all were superb. The shore dives were to partially satisfy our advanced open water certification. The instructor did an excellent job under less than ideal shore diving conditions (south swell made the visibility poor). The real treat was diving on Prodivers boat. The boat is designed for up to 12 divers, but they take out a maximum of 6. The dive trips to Molokini and sites along the shore were outstanding. The visibility was over 100 feet each day. We dived the inside and outside of the crater. We saw plenty of small to medium size fish and two large mantas on an outside-crater drift dive. The Manta dive was absolutely amazing. There were also numerous eels, octopus, white-tip reef sharks and one Galapagos shark.

Dive master Matt did a great job of keeping track of everyone and setting-up all the equipment. Both captains took us to the various sites with ease and comfort. The snacks were a nice touch. The dives had a low-pressure, casual, feel.
