This was one of the BEST experiences I have ever had! Mary and the rest of the crew were so kind and knowledgable about the area, diving, and the Hawaiian culture. We extended our trip into a two-tank dive and got to explore the surrounding areas of the garden eel bay before going into our manta show. The waters were cooler than we were used to in Florida, but they happily provided us with 3 & 5mil wetsuits. Definitely bring a go-pro or underwater camera because you WILL want to bring this experience home!
