Comments I spent 3 days diving with Bubbles Below in November 2018, and have been diving with this operation for about 20 years during many trips to Kauai.

Divemasters Anthony and Jordan both have many thousands of dives in Hawaiian waters, and are intimately knowledgeable about all of the dive sites in Kauai and Niihau waters.

While this past year has admittedly been especially difficult in diving Hawaiian waters during greater-than-normal storms, this did not affect the November dives taken with Bubble Below. And it was great to dive at southern island dive sites Id not visited in some time, including Camp 1 and Tortugas. ... Subscribe to get the full story.
