    I don't know if anyone else posted this in the last couple of days, but it seems that we're going to have a change in LDS's out in East Honolulu. The Aloha Dive Shop is gone (as in closed, store emptied out), and Island Divers is moving in.(as in doing a clean up of the store with an opening soon to follow).

    As I understand it IDH is not buying the Aloha Dive Ship boat, but is planning to use a small "tech" boat they own until they can get a bigger boat somewhere further down the line.

    Since this location is minutes from where I live and I already dive with IDH this is good news for me.

    that's awesome that it's moving to a bigger location, but will it become more geared towards tourists, as in raising prices, and less deals?

    At least I don't have to drive to Hickam and wait at the gate to buy a reel. Do you know when they are opening there?

    From what I can tell, they are the only shop on island that carries reels. When I went to Aaron's a couple of weekends ago, they claimed they always have them but were out. Sure.

    I don't want to purchase it online and have to pay $10 to get it here.

    They're keeping their Hickam location and will still have most of their gear out there. I suspect they can send something over though if you didn't want to go to Hickam.

    I Like IDH, think that the Instructors are top notch safety minded. Gear prices though?????? Sometimes you can get Matt to barter. It should be a good move for the people out at Hawaii Kai. Good luck to Them!

    UCSB should be nice, but the housing is bucks, unless you drive in from Lompoc....I
    did 2 years at CSUN, but ended up going to a private Tech college in Reseda..
