Comments They advertise in most of the periodicals along with Jack’s Diving Locker on the Big Island- and yet they are really a “shack on the boat ramp operation”. I loved it!! A great deal in Maui diving!!!!
The onsite guy, Pat Miller, had a professional and yet relaxed & laize’s faire attitude when I stopped by. I showed up for my $130 –all gear included- two tank trip to Lana’i – at the reasonable time of 8:00, not at 6 or 6:30 like many of the rest, we boarded their big steel bottomed zodiac style inflatable off the boat ramp and had two fine dives with green turtles, a Hawaiian Monk Seal, octopus, endemic Hawaiian reef fish, and whale song reverberating in my chest. Just what I’d been hoping for. They’ve got a large stock of Tusa and other gear mfg. for sale or rent. Dive price included rental gear which was basically new. Substantial snacks were doled out between dives, and they offered a DVD video and still photo disc of our dives for those that didn’t have their own documentation. After 700 + dives around the world- I’d say - I’d use them again- ------Mr. Pat
