My husband and I had a excellent time diving for four days (eight dives) in
Kauai with Seasport.  Currents were very strong that week, so the captain
(Andrew) and dive leaders (Anthony, Sabin, Shaked) carefully scouted the
dive sites before divers entered the water to avoid sites with poor vis or
overly-challenging currents. We ended up diving some rarely-visited sites
even though they were outside of the range that Seasport typically travels.
 Many of the dives were drift dives, and divers were carefully briefed on
procedures and safety prior to the dives.  Anthony takes special interest
and pride in identifying fish and critters during the dive, and made
efforts to point things out to the group.  Both Anthony and Sabin obviously
love diving and were very professional, safe, and knowledgable.  They
allowed us a reasonable amount of independence once they determined our
proficiency level, but were always available to help with equipment or fish
ID or a good laugh.  We had so many interesting sitings throughout the
week, including schools of barracuda, snapper, and reef fish, as well as
sharks, octopus, frog fish, leaf scorpionfish, razor wrasses, lobster,
various shrimp, and many many turtles.  Schools of dolphins swam alongside
the boat on two different days as we returned to the dock.  The dive sites
are close to the marina (I'd say most are only 5 - 15 minutes motoring). 
The boat is nice and roomy, especially since we were there during low
season.  The head could stand some improvements, but it existed and worked,
which is more than we can say about some other dive boats we've been on). 
Food and beverages were basic but adequate.  Things seemed to run smoothly
at the shop, but we came with our own gear so didn't really need too much
at the shop other than souvenier t-shirts (of which they had a great
selection).  We'd dove with Seasport once before and dive leader Anthony
many times before, and were not disappointed with our choice to return.  We
enjoy diving in Hawaii, we always see something new each dive, we
definitely recommend Seasport and Anthony, and we will be back!
