Reeftrekkers picked up people at different hotels along Waikiki, and then
headed for the harbor. We were all surprised when we got to the dive boat
and learned that many different dive groups (led by different Dive Ops)
were on the same boat. 

Before the trip we received an email indicating their requirements related
to medical conditions. Apparently not everyone in the group received this
email, so there was a lot of frustration when one person checked yes to
medication but didn't have a full medical release with him. The prior week
he was on a liveaboard in Palau - but there were no exception to this rule!
IMHO, this attitude in dive operators doesn't encourage truthful completion
of a medical form. Oh... then they didn't bother to check for C-Cards!

Once on the boat, we were told to stay in one area of the boat. Getting our
equipment on was quite a challenge due to the cramped conditions.
Reeftrekkers did their best to help us out. 

We dove the Sea Tiger Wreck (lots of nooks and crannies, including an
opportunity to swim into the bridge). This would have been a better dive if
there hadnt been SO many divers on it from our boat. Our second dive was
Kewalo Pipe (also spelled Koala Pipe). This steel pipeline isnt used
anymore, but lots of corals and critters have turned it into an artificial
reef. They broke us into smaller groups (our family of three was one group)
to each dive with a divemaster.
