This was the second "beginner" dive that I have done- when you do the training in the AM and the dive in the afternoon (previous one was in Belize). I did the two tank boat dive in the afternoon. The diving instructors were nice, patient, and helpful. They made me feel very safe. I liked that she pointed out things while we were under water. A few things to note, the website says the training is in a pool, it is now in a bay. I can see why they do this, it is more realistic of the dive. However, if you are anxious, the pool might be a nice way to help focus you on the instructions. The ONLY reason that I didn't give this 5/5 is because the captain appeared cranky and bordered on plain rude. He seemed irritated by the whole process and the divers. When we asked him if there were any local restaurants he would recommend for dinner (we were staying in Kapa'a and the dive was in Poipu- so we thought we would try a new place for dinner out there), his response was basically to tell us that everything was too expensive in an unnecessarily cranky way. We would have been happy with if he recommended a taco truck! We would still go back.
