Almost perfect

The only drawback is that the rental fins have rubber foot pockets which do not accept shoes which you really need in the cold water. You better bring your own shoes/fins, one of the dive guides gave me his fins but you may not be that lucky. Other than that it was a perfect trip.

Wonderful live-aboard experience

I had a great time. My first time to Hawaii, the main draw for me was the manta rays, and wow did we see some. But the real highlight for me was when Karl stopped the boat when there were dolphins near by and I got to snorkel with them. The entire crew was super-friendly and helpful, and the food was outstanding. Compared to staying in a hotel and making day dives, this was definitely a better deal. Thanks for a great vacation!

1) Divemaster tours, great for singles without a buddy on board. 2) Cabin with shower; slept well, kept warm, and a place for my stuff. 3) Service; being catered to and helped out in every way.

Mantas on the night unique experience

Excellent crew and food, the diving sites are good but the only one out of mind was the night dive with mantas.....im wonder why we did not repeat it. Please notice the last day the boat does not stay overnight at the pier, thus, if you have flight before 8 am, you have to reserve accomodation additionally on mainland. I did receive wrong confirmation from liveaboard.com stating i could stay at the boat and catch the flight at 600 am. On site, i have to run and get quickly a hotel room. That was a big stain after a 10 points trip.
