Comments 3 days of 2-tank dives with Dive Makai.

Excellent service all around. Very fun, personable crew that love what they do, and are very happy to share it with their divers. Decent rental gear. All gear completely set up for us, tested and brought to aft of boat for us and helped on. All gear explained in case something might be new for someone. Divemasters provided excellent pre-dive briefs including site layout, expected conditions, fish and critters, etc. Also provided great post-dive briefs as well. Divemasters guided groups through each site and pointed out interesting items and hidden critters. Very helpful with any equipment problems. Provided yummy snacks and drinks. Solar-heated freshwater shower.

No dive shop, but a van with merchandise that meets at the dock after return.
