Comments Picked Ed Robinson's over another operator we'd had good experience with since reports were so good. Perhaps they do a better job with advanced or private charters, but we went on a regular weekday two tank dive to Molokini. Check in was chaotic trying to find boat on crowded ramp pre-dawn. Captain checking us in was noncommunicative, gave nasty blank stare in nonresponse to simple questions such as, where are the toilets? While there were numerous people looking last minute for a boat to go out on, they were unwilling to take someone to replace my daughter's spot so we were out $129 for a snorkeler! Note their three day advance cancellation, so don't catch a cold! No explanation of choice of spot on interior of crater (we were told we might go to outside of crater) I think it was simply what was left after other boats crowded us out of mooring spots. Very mediocre spot considering amount of marine life normally found. Divemaster did nothing to point out interesting creatures such as nudibranchs. Second dive was drift dive on submerged rim of crater which wasn't bad. Snacks very skimpy but was the least complaint. For the amount they charge very disappointing to be treated so badly. We will go back to using Mike Severns next time.
