We were divided into two groups; experienced and not
experienced/uncertified. You had to follow your DM, but could stay down as
long as you had air of 500 psi or more. I came up both times with over
1000. This was my first Nitrox dive.

I ended up with Seasport, because Bubbles Below did not answer my e-mails
and forwarded my request for info to Seasport.  I am close to having a 100
dives over 20 years under my belt, but am not thrilled with either of these
operations who seem to dominate Kauai.  We had 8 divers on the Seasport
boat and it was difficult to manuever dive gear, tanks, etc.  Thank
goodness 2 divers didn't show up!  They have a "head," but we
were told not to use it.  Our briefing was done by the captain on the dock,
who mostly told us what "he" wanted us to do for his comfort. 
There was really no information about what we could expect to see.  When we
got on the boat, we were told to suit up, since it was only a 10 minutes
boat trip.  As soon as the last person came up from the first dive, we
again were told to suit up for the second dive and took a 5 minute boat
trip.  First dive was to 54' and second to 63'.  We were told not to worry
about our log books, because they had all the information and would tell us
what to put in our logs.  And, of course, they had a film of our dive and
what we saw or didn't see -- and guess what?  They would be happy to sell
you the CD for $70. or something like that! I will grant you we saw some
beautiful sea creatures, including Spanish Dancer eggs and a male spotted
Boxfish, but I think the DM taking all the pictures was more interested in
selling his CD.  In general, this is a very commercial operation that
really doesn't care that much about it's divers or whether they come back
year after year -- and they don't have to worry about me, because I won't
be back next year.
