Comments I had dove with ERDA previously, so when my wife wanted to go to Hawaii, we settled on Maui, as I felt this would be a good experience for my son to get his AOW. The highlight of the trip was he completed his AOW and got some dives to hone his skills. Most of the rest of the trip was disappointing. One thing to note is that the crew on both boats were competent, friendly and hard working. The decline is mainly from the operational choices by the owners.

I would have called other dive shops after the first screw-up day. There are other reputable dive shops. I always go with Lahaina Divers. See my reviews.
