Went on 2 dives, Molikini and Makena Caves. Ben Ha and JOHN took great care of us. Very experienced masters. Took time for some incredible whale watching also. I will definitely dive wither again.

I'm a very experienced recreational diver with about 250 dives in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, Mexico, Florida, and all through the Caribbean. I found the staff and crew to be very friendly, helpful, and competent. I recommend them highly.
