     I had one day of diving I could do on this trip to Maui.  Based upon
feedback I saw in Undercurrent I went with Prodiver out of Wailea. 
Prodiver was an excellent operation.  They limit their boat to 6 divers
maximum and they are the first boat out of the Kihei boat ramp each
morning.  The first dive is at the Molokini Crater and the second dive is
usually a site near the South Maui shore (our group's second dive was at 5
Caves).  That means getting up early since the boat leaves at 6:00 AM, but
it also means you beat the dozens of snorkel boats to Molokini.  You also
get back to the ramp after the second dive before 11:00 AM so you have the
rest of your day to do things on shore.  Prodiver are very professional and
very unlike many of the Maui cattlecar operations.  Most people diving with
them are experienced so the only limit they place on divers is to surface
when you get to 800 psi.
     The diving is not as spectacular as a lot of other destinations but it
is worthwhile.  The visibility at Molokini is fantastic (reliably over 100
ft).  While Maui lacks a lot of the colorful corals seen in other dive
locations, the fish here can be interesting and many are unique to Hawaii. 
You can expect to see a lot of turtles (although not typically at
Molokini).  There are some reef sharks and occasional manta rays.  I saw
two frogfish, at least six turtles, two octopus, and three dragon morays on
the second dive.
     Maui would not be my first choice for a dedicated dive vacation, but
it is a great destination for families and nondiving activities.  If you
find yourself in Maui with a few days for diving I would highly recommend
Prodiver.
