Comments We were so comfortable with this dive operation that we had our 10 year old daughter certified by them. They were patient, caring and handled her with kid gloves. She did her book and pool work in 2 days and then did her open water dives. She loved it. She then did a twilight/night dive. We did not do any deep diving as we had to stay shallow for our daughter.
This was not the best time of year to go but it was Easter vacation and our daughter was out of school. We have been to Kona numerous times in the past including summer time and fall (October) where the visibility was better and there was less surge. Everything was perfect and Captain Jeff is the best! Nick did the teaching and he was awsome with our daughter.
