Unbelievable otherworldly experience; one of my best dives ever. I went with Neptune Charlies, and I was the only scuba diver. My kids and my elderly parents snorkeled on the surface. I would do this again in a heart beat.

If you ever have wanted to do a night dive, do it here. By far the most surreal experience I’ve ever had underwater. Imagine HUGE mantas floating right over your head! Unreal. Highly recommended.

Boat dive for advanced open water certification. Nice site that I have been to before. It was a nice dive for critters. Garden Eels at 58 ft on the sand bottom. There were eels about as it was starting shift toward sundown. We had a green flash sunset on this dive. A really special added bonus! Jeane, Keller, Capt Eric, and all the crew on the Kea nui from Jacks diving locker were great.
