Comments Wanted to do a night dive in Hawaii that wasn't the Kona Manta tour. Checked with Maui Dreams and they were very accommodating. Booked me for the following evening with a one-on-one trip. They supplied the tanks and weights and supplied a 100cf tank on request with no hassle or additional charge.

We met at the shop just before sunset and I followed in my car to the dive beach. The DM had planned it to allow time to set up and check out the gear before dark and we entered the water just before total darkness. The reef started when we were only about 10 feet deep and we just followed it out to about 35 feet. I am always amazed at how different a reef looks in the dark. Where do all the pretty tropical fish go to hide? Instead we saw three species of moray eel I had never seen before, including a bright yellow dwarf moray. There were lots of crabs, active scallops and varieties of fish not seen during the day.

After the dive, the public beach provided a convenient shower to wash off the salt and sand.

In summary, nothing big or exciting, but a very interesting and enjoyable dive. Kudos to Maui Dreams for running a class operation.
