Here’s why: My wife and I traveled to Molokai for the first time in March. Although diving was not the primary purpose, we had intended to dive 2-3 days of our weeklong trip. Even before we left home, there were issues. Emails were not returned. A few days before departure, I finally called. They said they were having email problems, but did answer my questions, so I packed our gear.

We easily found the dive shop (Molokai is small, and this is the only dive company on the island). We spoke with the owner, and got very excited! He described the pristine reefs, without even mooring sites. Instead, he told of the numerous sand patches where they could safely drop anchor. We scheduled a dive for the next morning. The two tank dives included wetsuits (we opted for 7 mm, and were glad to have them). We had brought our own regulators and BC’s, as they cost extra.

The next morning we checked in at the boat. There was a mixed group of 5 divers and maybe 7-8 snorkelers. Captain Roger was competent but appeared annoyed. As we were boarding, one diver asked if the boat was going to the same site as yesterday. Captain Roger barked, “How would I know? I wasn’t out yesterday. I don’t know where you went!” He did provide an a ... Subscribe to get the full story. For Subscribers Only  Active subscribers continue reading here

Too bad. I you had done your research, you would have stayed in Maui and gone with Lahaina Divers. Long trip, but they are VERY experienced with this very challenging area to dive. I've done the hammerhead trip about 7 or 8 times. It's always rough getting back on board. LD is one of the few outfits going to Lanai almost daily.
