Comments Overall I enjoyed the diving & the boat.The lava tubes & open caves were interesting & housed a few critters.There were enough turtles,octopus,eels,tropical fish,conchs eating urchins to keep me interested.A 6-7 foot conger eel was a night dive highlight & a day octopus put on quite a color/texture change show on a couple of day dives.The manta night dive only had one but it was extremely active & put on a good show.About 10 dolphins passed just overhead on our last dive of the week.We also saw 8-10 pilot whales near the boat while on a surface interval.Some dive sites had good coral growth & some almost none at all.Topside scenery was interesting due to volcanos/lava flows.Boat dive deck worked well.Cabins were small.Common areas were nice inside & out.Food was all very good.The crew were all very nice & helpful.
