Comments Totally professionally run dive operation. Great briefs, very cordial crew and shop personnel, great dive sites around Niihau and Lehuna Rock. The best diving in the Hawaiian Islands bar none. Many sand bar sharks, turtles, monk seals, eagle rays. Frogfish sighted and numerous endemic Hawaiian fish. Visibility was terrific and the underwater topography is a dreamscape. Seasport did a great job. They do troll for Wahoo, tuna, etc. on the way to Niihau and they caught a 150 lb yellow fin tuna which made for some excitement. Boat was comfortable at 48' in length and transit time was 2 hours. Would definitely dive with them again. Nitrox available and used...accurate fills but pressure could have been better than the 2800 on aluminium hi-pressure 80's
