Hi there! We are planning our first trip to Hawaii in late June/early July and will be splitting our time between Maui (Paia and Hana) and Kauai (Hanalei). Can people recommend any particular spots and/or tour operators that they recommend on either island? We will likely stay fairly shallow and aren't interested in seeking out sharks!:)
For background, two of us are recently certified, have our PADI cards and in theory can dive anywhere. But that being said we're pretty new to it, and would definitely want to dive with an expert, rather than simply rent equipment for a shore dive. We also want to make the most of our first dive away from the chilly waters of New England! (Though there's a lot more to see around here than you might think...).
