These trips are great for South Kauai visitors.  Wonderful personel at
Seasport Divers, Poipu location.  Meet at dive shop, show c-card and rent
gear if needed.  Nitrox available for each dive.  Five minute van ride to
harbor where their spacious boat Anela Kia takes up to 16 divers, but both
trips I was on had only 6 divers on board. Plenty of space even with a full
load on board.  Capt Andrew was professional and happy to accommodate us
each trip.  Dive masters Ryan and Nico (on trip one) and Mike (on trip two)
were excellent dive guides.  They took the time to search out the usual and
not so usual cast of Hawaiian waters creatures and fish.  Wonderful
sightings including a Purple Leaf Scorpion that looked like an orchid!  Saw
Indian Nudibranch, Spanish Dancer Nudibrach Egg Sacks, several very large
Frog Fish, Fushia Flat Worms, Octopus, Tiger Cowery, Hawaiian Greensea
Turtle, Fried Egg Nudibrach, and the list goes on.  The entire crew was
happy to share their underwater world with us, new diver and veteran divers
alike.  They handled our personal gear with care, and explained rental gear
to those in need.  The Anela Kai is the largest dive boat on the South
Kauai shore.  Seasport Divers shop has many great "divers needs"
available for sale.  Very nice experience.
