Comments First two days were on Lanai - Day 1 was choppy, swells were up and viz was down (sites were Shark Fin and Lighthouse) - not great diving; Day 2 was Cathedral 1 - been there before, and was enjoyable again; Day 3 was the special trip to Molokai for the schooling Hammerheads - not many showed up - two (very large, great Hammerheads), plus large Galapagos shark and very large great Barracuda - but not the hoped-for schools of great Hammerheads...oh well. Crossing over to Molokai was "interesting" - be prepared.

Lahaina Divers - very good outfit -- comfortable boat, friendly folks, professional, good briefings, safety and environment conscious -- reommended.

Hyatt was terrific. Am Diamond status and stayed on points - was upgraded to oceanfront room; all staff very friendly and welcoming.
