Comments We've been diving with Linda and Bubbles Below for years. I've been trying to get to Ni ihau, but never made it until this year. We made two trips over to Ni ihau and a trip to the Na Pali coast for diving. Diving on Ni ihau was well worth the effort to get there. Many endemic and rare critters. Beautiful wall dives, swim throughs, arches, caves. Easily the best dives we've had in the Hawaiian Islands. We saw sharks on every dive, encountered several pods of spinner dolphins. The dive operation was as good as it has ever been. Several new dive masters have added to the already great crew. Linda runs a great operation, and I would readily recommend them!
