Comments [just got back from Maui and dived with Mike severns. The first dive at molokini crater was beset with problems --mainly a very strong current/ the dive master admitted to taking us to far and then we had to literally hold on to coral to get back to the boat. When I surfaced I had no air but did do a safety stop at 20 feet. we saw on shark in the distance. The other dives were uneventful, the vis at Molokni was excellent, close to shore was only 40-50 feet. The operation is still good, but having dived in Puerto rico last year at La Parguerra, I found the diving in Maui somewhat disappointing. When you can see the large critters. things even out a bit however-if you do not, well it is still fun, but not great.The max number on the boat was 10. They meet at 6;15 at the Kihei boat ramp. There are snacks on board and drinks. On the closer in dives there were many turtles and a very large sting ray.If you book 3 days of diving you get a discount.
