Comments Maximum of 6 divers per trip on a boat that would usually take 10 - 12. Any gear you didn't bring, they supply new, good-quality replacement at no charge. Thorough dive briefing by Pierre who led the dive. Other crew member, Dave, followed our bubbles for a slow & gentle drift dive. Lots of small tropicals over the mostly rubble-strewn area off Molokini Crater. Several blacktip sharks & large sandy area full of garden eels.

We had gotten an early (7 am) start to beat the bigger boats to a prime spot. When a boat with about 20 divers arrived during our briefing, and they started jumping in the water 150 yards away before we could get in, we moved 1/4 mile away to less picturesque area.

Dive was marred by a previously unknown medical problem my wife experienced while surfacing from 70'. Pierre & Dave reacted quickly & professionally; got us back to shore after calling for ambulance to meet us at the dock. They resumed the dive trip and cleaned our gear & delivered it to us at the hospital. The only negative I can state is that they did not put her on the available oxygen on the boat.

We plan to return to Maui. If Beth is able to continue diving, we will call ProDivers first.
