Comments [None]This is our 8th or 9th year of diving with Linda and Bubbles Below. We were able to take a rare February trip to Niihau. We had an absolutely perfect day of diving! The diving at Niihau is pristine, with great visibility in winter. We encountered mantas, sharks, whales (both humpback and pilot), spinner dolphins along with the usual Hawaiian endemic species. The dive master Joe did a terrific job and was extremely knowledgeable about the critters and the topography and natural history of Kauai. Peter was the captain, and made this a very special trip. As usual, we were all well fed and taken care of. We actually were able to snorkel and swim with the whales on the crossing back to Port Allen! I've been diving a long time, and this was one of the best days of diving I've had! Linda continues to have the best outfit on the island. Her enthusiasm hasn't waned over the years, and somehow she continues to employ the best dive crews as well! We will be back again later this year!
