I am a relatively new diver but Maui Dive Shop has already set themselves apart from the other dive shops I have encountered. I would consider it white glove service. They sent up all the gear and showed me my assigned equipment including a dive computer. Since I had never used a dive computer they went over exactly what I... More

My dad and I had a great time. We only did shore dives because we had such a great experience with our first shore dives, and, unfortunately, limited time. Our dive master, Jim, was able to spot the most interesting and well-camouflaged creatures, including a frogfish, a devil scorpionfish, and several octopi as well as tailor our dive lineup to...

I had a great dive with Maui Dive and my husband had booked one for a couple of days later. When we showed up the dive had been cancelled with no message left at our condo, cell or email. Then they couldn't give us a refund there, we had to go to another store and sort the refund out ourselves.... More

How to you rate an organization where your first experience is so horrible you want to chain the doors shut behind you so no one else has to suffer a similar experience. At both the Lahina and Maleea Harbour stores the retail staff were abysmal. At the Lahina store, on March 18th the front desk staff person actually argued with... More
