Comments This was truly spectacular diving! Incredibly healthy reef systems; tons of fishes with very vibrant corals. In addition to other sites, we visited both the First and Second Cathedrals and they DO deliver a religious experience with the light radiating downward. Amazing visibility to boot! Really the best diving we've experienced across the islands of Hawaii, Maui, and Kaua'i. Our crossings were amazingly calm, which I understand is not always the case especially in February. The operators and guides were terrific and very knowledgeable naturalists; nice bottom times over 60min. At least one of the guides is a photographer so you can buy some nice pics and videos of your experiences. I like photographing my own, but it was nice to get some pics of me (underwater selfies don't look so good). I would highly recommend this operation and a trip over to Lanai if you can make it!
