Comments The Dive Master, Matt, was terrific in showing divers the splendors of Molokini Crater and South Maui marine life. We saw White Tip Shark, Green Sea Turtles, Spotted Eagle Ray, Moray Eels, lots of Tropicals, and to top it off, Cleaner Shrimp that came into his open mouth. He also carefully removed Octopus and gently played with them, handing them to other divers. At one dive site, Red Hill, we saw 3 different types of Frog fish. The diving was relaxed and well paced. The boat captains helped us with dive gear before and after the dives. Also,they would slow down to check out pods of Spinner Dolphin on the way back to the dock. The ProDiver crew were very friendly, informative, and down-to-Earth folk. Fresh fruit was served during the surface interval, a nice touch.

The only down side was not going to the one ship wreck in the area. Most of the divers were positive, except for one couple that was not wreck dive willing.
