The waters around Maui were angry during the duration of our trip. The staff of Maui Dreams worked with me to schedule dives in order to complete my open water certification. I was only able to get 3/4 dives in, but I cannot fault them. They worked their best to schedule me and even arranged for me to boat dive... More

A very unfortunate and unprofessional experience. Jay Schiesser and Teri the Store Manager, were both arrogant and condescending. Jay actually had me in tears at one point. A very unpleasant start to our dream vacation in Hawaii! Jay was replaced with Curly and Kelly as our dive instructors who were able to salvage the experience. Shout out to Curly and... More

Enjoyed two days of diving with MDDC Feb 9-10. Crappy wind caused shore diving and scooter diving closures that I had planned to do, but the dives, Backwall and front of Molokini were terrific! 100+ ft vis, great staff in the shop and on the boat (Kudos to Ben and Wilson) made for super trips for my daughter and I....

We signed up up for intro shore dive. That had to be changed to intro boat dive due to surf advisory. That had to be changed to a snorkel trip due to wind and surf conditions. Terry refunded the difference. Crew of maui diamond boat was great. Will come back certified and use them again.

This was my first ocean dive and I went with Maui Dreams two days in a row. I became certified in a cold Canadian lake that I could barely see in so this was heaven! Not only were the dives themselves great, the crew was too. Safety was their first concern, and it made everything run smoothly. It was handy... More

My wife completed her certification with Maui Dreams and we started diving with them in 2001. We keep coming back. Everyone is always great and it really feels like you're diving with friends. They will do all the setup work on the equipment or you can assemble your own gear. They provide as much support as you want, or as... More

We did our classroom and pool portion in Mn, and the open water with Maui Dreams. I started out apprehensive, nervous, and participating mainly because my husband was into it. But these guys turned me into a diver, eagerly awaiting the next dive !!!! We ended our trip with 4 dives in one day after we were certified. They were... More

Went for their "Intro Dive" as I had never scuba dived before. Had a very good experience and everything was very well done. Safe, professional but relaxed; all good. Pretty good value as well, IMHO. Recommended.

After several years of renting we wanted to buy some snorkel gear. I did a little research online looking for a local shop that had trained staff. Maui Dreams did not disappoint. Curly (and everyone there) was very knowledgeable helped us out by fitting us with masks. He then recommended we rent the same mask from their rental gear collection... More

I finished my Padi open water diver referrals with Maui Dreams at the beginning of this month. Everyone I dealt with at Maui Dreams was knowledgeable, easygoing and fun. Big thanks to Kelly (Day 1) and Jay (Day 2) for being so awesome to dive with. I having nothing but good things to say about this place, and the people... More
