Comments [Diving in Kauai surpassed our expectations. Had the seas cooperated it would have been spectacular. I cannot think of a better way to see the Napili Coast than from a dive boat, but alas, it was still too rough at the end of April and beginning of May and so our trips to the Mana Crack and Ni’hau were cancelled. The diving from Koala Landing did not disappoint, with dolphins cruising past at 80’ below, lots of turtles and lots of sharks. Eels and frog fish were plentiful and the wonderful sound of whales in the distance added to the adventure. Considering the recent weather and rough seas - the viz was still quite good. Blondy handles all the bookings on land while Clay goes out of his way to show you the diversity of marine life and explain the unique coral and lava formations with details about every critter, while his boat Cptn and other dive master help usher you in and out of the water. Diving in rough water requires coordinated effort to get divers off and under quickly and safely and Bubbles Below was professional in every aspect of diving while maintaining the utmost respect for marine/reef life. Meals and snacks and water, juice were plentiful on board and strict safety procedures were outlined, but always punctuated with fun, silly groaner “dad” jokes. You will be in good hands if you dive with Bubbles Below. None]
