Comments These trips are great for South Kauai visitors. Wonderful personel at Seasport Divers, Poipu location. Meet at dive shop, show c-card and rent gear if needed. Nitrox available for each dive. Five minute van ride to harbor where their spacious boat Anela Kia takes up to 16 divers, but both trips I was on had only 6 divers on board. Plenty of space even with a full load on board. Capt Andrew was professional and happy to accommodate us each trip. Dive masters Ryan and Nico (on trip one) and Mike (on trip two) were excellent dive guides. They took the time to search out the usual and not so usual cast of Hawaiian waters creatures and fish. Wonderful sightings including a Purple Leaf Scorpion that looked like an orchid! Saw Indian Nudibranch, Spanish Dancer Nudibrach Egg Sacks, several very large Frog Fish, Fushia Flat Worms, Octopus, Tiger Cowery, Hawaiian Greensea Turtle, Fried Egg Nudibrach, and the list goes on. The entire crew was happy to share their underwater world with us, new diver and veteran divers alike. They handled our personal gear with care, and explained rental gear to those in need. The Anela Kai is the largest dive boat on the South Kauai shore. Seasport Divers shop has many great "divers needs" available for sale. Very nice experience.
