Comments The good: the DM was more than compettent; he asked for what you want to see then he found them; e.g., turtles, tropical fishes, sharks and nudibranhes
the bad: there was surge some of the time; 2nd dive, lots of swimming/ finning; no food; weird hrs.; arrive at 10:15 AM for afternoon dives; back by 2 PM
MISC.: the divers shared lots of stuff: $32 mai tai, very tasty Poke bowl, etc. very expensive inside Waikiki area, less expensive outside of Waikiki
