So we ended up going with Jack's Diving Locker. Was a pretty amazing experience - we went on their scheduled night and it was just the 2 of us on the boat, and chartered the boat for a second night (again just us 2) - if you can wing it that you are the only ones on the boat, it is a very special experience. The dive guides were in the water but for them it was a pleasure dive since they didn't have to worry about us. Each dive was ~75 minutes and some fantastic things floated by. Matt D'Avella (JDL's resident expert) takes a bit of warming up to (and likewise him to us) but we had a good time diving with him. He'll also give you good tips if you listen....
Here's a video I pulled together of my footage - pretty happy with the results though I wish I had a week of consecutive diving to work the kinks out. One big recommendation: bring a sh*% load of light - Matt the dive guide had 5 lights on his rig!!! My 2 Sola 1200s were woefully inadequate.

Very nice video. Thanks for sharing. Somehow I missed your original post. We went out two nights with Matt from Jack's Diving Locker as well. Glad you also had a great trip!
