Thank you so much for your kind review. You might contact the Hawaii department of land and natural resources with your concerns about the public bathroom at Puako boat ramp (it might help keep it clean!) Mahalo for your business!

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.

Blue Wilderness has pay as you go, daily dives. Also the Manta night dive is not to be missed. 3ml full wetsuit advised, and a good light.

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
