Comments Mike Severns Diving is by far the most professional and organized dive operation we have pleasure of diving with. The briefings were excellent and are given by a knowledgeable staff. They also took the time to be sure everyone was comfortable and ready before descending making the dives much more enjoyable for the less experienced.
Over all good diving and a great time.

Kihei Surfside is a good value condo located just south of the Kihei boatramp (where all the dive operators meet). It is a short walk the condos to boat.

The food on Maui was not as good as on some of the other islands and prices seemed very high.
Could be we just did not hit the right places.
