Comments Rene of Octopus Reef was the consumate tour guide/instructor. She made us feel very, very comfortable as newly certified divers. We were able to take a private 26 foot boat, with just ourselves and Rene for our boat dives. The captin of the boat was wonderful. We were learning and gaining confidence every minute of each of the four days. We saw wonderful ocean life and Rene was able to explain each and every thing we saw. She helped us get over our fears so that by the fourth and last day of our diving in Maui, we were so sad to see it end. I would highly recommend Octopus Reef and Rene to anyone. Especially, for those individuals that want to learn about sea life and learn how to "stop and smell the roses" while you are diving. (There was a group of Ed Robinson divers that were moving so fast at Molokini, they completely missed the Manta Ray directly in front of them). Rene made sure we received the full experience and history of south Maui diving.
