Comments I did not make arrangements before arriving and went with Extended Horizons from a recommendation of the concierge in the Hyatt Maui. I was pleasantly surprised with the dive sites and the exceptional crew. 1st Cathedral was great. Excellent vis and lots of life and photo ops. Shooting out the shotgun and marine life were great. 1st site was Nob Hill. Coral seemed bleached compared to Cathedrals, but marine life plentiful. Lots of fish and 2 huge Ghost Crabs. All in all a great morning of diving.

The crew was great. 2 groups of 6 divers each. Experienced divers were separate from novice divers. Merin was a great guide. All gear was taken care of and tanks switched. All gear came with dive computers as well. Boat was good and is very eco-friendly as it runs on bio-diesel. No nasty fumes on a 45 minute trip to Lanai was really nice. Boat leaves from Mala Ramp, no land facilities, but none were needed.

I would not hesitate to dive with Extended Horizons again. They were professional, safety conscious, eager to help and very knowledgeable about the area.
