My son and I enjoyed two shore dives with Cory this week (Mala Pier and Olowalu). Cory was professional, safety focused, and provided a ton of information to enhance our dives. I highly recommend Cory and Maui Dive Shop.

This morning we set out to do our first dive in over four years. My first experience with the dive shop should these guys were serious about safety, our first beach dive was postponed as the dive company decided it was not optimal conditions for safety. This made me appreciate that these guys really cared about people's safety. The next... More

We have been to Maui 6 times and use the Maui Dive Shop every time we go for both shore and boat dives. They always know the best spots and where the conditions will be the best. Our favorites in Maui are the 5 caves near Wailea and either Mala Pier or Black rock near Lahaina. This past time we... More

Had time for only one dive trip with MDS last week on Maui. A very good experience and although the high winds caused us to do two dives at Molokini, instead of a trip to Turtle Town, the dives were awesome, as were all the crew.

I cannot say enough good things about this group. John and Ben were great. This is full service diving, I did not touch a tank except to dive. The location selection was fantastic considering the weather, and the captain stopped perfectly long to view whales on the way. If you want a complaint, the food was fair at best, and... More

My husband and I went to Hawaii for a business trip and had the opportunity to go out diving with Maui Dive Shop. It was a great experience! The staff was great to work with and very knowledgeable. Felt safe with the staff and boat. Will dive with this company again next year when we return back to Hawaii.
