Used Maui dive shop to dive the Lanai/ cathedrals dive. Excellent dive and crew. Highly reccomend them for the specific dive sites. Went on the Manta Ray dive, it was a bust. Didn't see any until we were docking the boat at the end. Did see a squid and as always tons of fish and a few sharks. The equipment... More

We went out on the Maka Kai to dive St. Anthony's wreck and Molokini. Mike R. was our dive master. We had a great time. Saw turtles, many fish, some white tipped reef shatks and a gray reef shark. The crew was outstanding and ensured a great time was had by all. I'll dive with them again. Mahalo to all.

My daughter and I did a 2 tank dive while in Maui. We were very pleased with the crew (John, Mike, and Captain Chris). They did a terrific job explaining the unique sea life and while diving they were like a tour guide underwater. Nice boat, not crowded, and well run.

We just got back from 2 weeks in Maui. We rented equipment for shore dives and went on 2 boat dives with MDS - Lanai Lava Tubes and Molokini/Turtle Town. This outfit is the best I've gone with. Everyone - boat captain and dive guides are all having fun and work hard to make the experience outstanding. We had newly... More

Snorkel in the afternoon, I couldn't believe it when my wife told me that she signed my daughter and myself up. No one snorkels in the afternoon, the trade winds blow and the water gets choppy. I was SO wrong about that. The Alii Nui was an awesome boat and the crew was great. I wear optical lenses in my... More

We liked Maui Dive shop so much that we booked two additional trip s on the Maka Koa after our first one. Mark, Wayne, Kat, Mike, Chris, and all the others were great. We felt cared for as individuals not just as a job. Mike was our dive master for two of the trips and he was great. When we... More

Larry Sargent is the best beginning instructor ever. I took my two girls (age 12) for an intro dive. We had a blast. One diver was struggling to pressurize her ears and Larry was incredibly patient and helper her get down to 21 feet comfortably. I highly recommend this experience for any one wishing to try scuba especially with younger... More
