Just for context, we have dived a lot, in Hawaii and elsewhere. As mentioned by others, the crew is friendly and the boat is a bit cramped, but it works fine. It's a RIB and not your typical resort dive boat. The minor issues: in...More

Interested in the night manta snorkel for beginning of September...I have only snorkeled in the Caribbean and I do tend to be on the colder side. Should I plan on renting a full wetsuit for this? Also, will the snorkel only provide a good experience for viewing the mantas?

They give you a wetsuit on the tour - mine was only short sleeves and legs but definitely ask if a full one is available. I did not feel like I missed out at all with the snorkel experience! Enjoy

Shore diving on the Big island will AWLAYS require a full suit and booties. Even divers familiar with local shore dive spots don this gear. The reef can be sharp in many places and stepping on urchins can ruin a dive for sure . In the PADI Training manual one of the factors to consider is " Local Conditions ". Protect yourself and stay warm at the same time.

The above seems to me to be a statement! Trip advisor I am not sure what you want me to answer!
Almost the same question as above, but we are coming to the Big Island the end of June and will be doing some shore diving. Would you recommend a 3mm shorty or a full 3mm wetsuit. We plan on doing two morning dive per day. We typically do not get cold, but our past diving experience is in Florida and the Caribbean. Thanks for your help!

Yes it really depends on the person. In June it is pretty warm so shorties should be fine if you don't usually get cold and if you do get cold then full would be better.
