    I can't get them to work either by clicking the link. But if you copy and paste it into your browser they seem to work fine........ :confused:

    Thanks! I don't think the Blackwater dive is right for me, but looking forward to the mantas!

    Without looking at a map I can't be 100% sure, but I'd say it takes about 20 minutes to get to the harbor from the Mauna Lani - there's little in the way of development in between and it's fast road.

    Shore diving for experienced divers is a fine alternative on the Big Island. Many of the shore dive sites are as good as any of the boat sites - plus the benefits of not being led. I guess I should also say that so far as I know of, there aren't as many good shore sites on that stretch of the island as down from the harbor south, though Puako can be fabulous, and a couple north of there are decent as well.

    It took us just over 30 minutes to get to Honokohau from the Mauna Lani resort. The road is pretty straight, and posted at 55mph, but you are only as fast as the slowest guy in front of you as passing on that road can be a bit hairy. Heading further south into town has gotten a lot better since the road widening project.
