Great scuba dive, saw 3 turtles, eels, plenty of fish. The Koloa landing dive site is easily accessible, great for less experienced divers!

Bobby was amazing with my teenage boys - great teacher of the fundamentals while having fun. During our dives, it was abundantly clear that he knew the reefs and wildlife like the back of his hand. An unconditional recommendation.

The water in February was around 70 degrees. If your used to the Caribbean it's kinda cold. Went to a cavern where turtles go to rest. That was cool.
