Comments Seasport Divers has a very nice boat that rides well in Kauai's rough waters. We lucked out on having a relatively calm day for Kauai and got to dive the site "Zack's Hole." Its near Sheraton Caverns and was the best dive I've ever done in Hawaii. The coral heads were healthy and had quite a few fish. Very pretty with the clear water there.
Seasport is a professional operation and makes you feel very safe as well as comfortable. The Capt. and guides know the waters well and are able to brief you on the currents and offer you strategies for navigating the dive easily.
The first dive of the day was at Turtle Bluff at 80 feet. Its a cleaning station and we observed three turtles being buffed and puffed. Vis was only about 40 feet. But seeing 3-4 foot turtles hanging in the water column is still pretty cool.
For the 73 degree water, I use a 3 mm hooded vest and a 3 mm full suit. When youre doing multiple dives, this helps keep you from getting cold and fatigued. Some people on the boat wore swimming trunks only. I dont think they went out dancing that night.
I now plan on using this crew for a dive trip to the forbidden island, Niihau.
