John operates shore dives out of Waikoloa which was very convenient for us saving a trip to the harbor of 25 miles plus. He first took us to Puako but it proved too rough for a shore entry so we drove down to Two Steps in his car at no extra cost. The journey took us on roads that we had not traveled on previously providing useful local knowledge. We had two great dives with just the two of us and John. It all felt very comfortable although getting into the water when there are rocks can be tricky. John helped us through this bit with helpful hints and a dose of humor. His local knowledge and personal approach provides a change from the big dive outfits. We recommend him highly.
