Dave, Garry, and (Chad?) were all fantastic throughout the certification process. The diving that they take you too is very close to Waikoloa and there's tons of incredible swimthroughs that combined with the knowledge of the staff made this trip perfect.

Booked to go but sadly did not see any mantas. We were offered another trip when we return which was great! The staff, the dive boat and dive crew were excellent. I would advise on going on this trip

The snorkelers wear wet suits. They hold onto a float. There is no waiting around for the divers, the snorkeling and diving take place at the same time in the same spot.

Manta night dive a must do. I go 2-3 times at night every trip. Anywhere else they take you will be great for a second.

They give you a wetsuit on the tour - mine was only short sleeves and legs but definitely ask if a full one is available. I did not feel like I missed out at all with the snorkel experience! Enjoy
