We just got back from our first dive ever. We are in Waikiki and were picked up at our resort and driven to the departure point. Weather was great, staff were awesome... ask Mel about Snoop Dog. Our instructor was Mike who was so laid back and seemed to genuinely love scuba. We dove at two site. Our pick up time was 11:30 and we got back to the resort at 5:30ish. We saw a sting ray, scorpion fish, an octupus and a ton of other fish & urchins! There were a few pops on the boat and a communal bag of cookies (not sure if it was intended to be communal..but it was passed around)...suggest you bring your own drinks and snacks..we were hungry after diving! We have never dove before and we are not in the best shape..we had no problem with this awesome experience! Living Ocean Scuba..or bust!!!
