We dove Ni'ihau with SeaSport Divers.  They have a wonderful custom fitted
PRO 48' dive boat Certified for 42 passengers and 30 Divers. However,
keeping comfort in mind they limit it to only 12 divers for the trips to
the Island of NIIHAU.  They had no qualms about changing course to follow
the pilot whales on our way out, as well as completely circling the island
of Lehua crater to see the dozens of spinner dolphins playfully jumping and
spinning inside the crater walls.  We even caught a glimpse of 2 of the
last humpbacks of the season in the distance.  Monk seals came by and they
caught a 40 lb yahoo trolling during one of our surface intervals.  They
were pleasant to dive with and let us dive our own profiles while making
sure we had plenty of air left for 5 minute safety stops.  They had soapy
water waiting in large troughs at their store for rinsing our gear leaving
it fresh-smelling.  And their big comfortable boat, with head, made the
rough channel crossing much more pleasant.  They charge exactly the same
price as Bubbles Below, but in my opinion, have far superior facilities and
are more pleasant people to dive with as well.
