My wife and I only dive a few times a year while on vacation, and booked our trip through Maui Dive Shop. Among the best end to end experiences we've had. Shuttle picked us up right on time, the equipment pickup (we used their BCD's) was well organized, and the boat was clean and ready to go as soon as... More

Loved the folks at Maui Dive Shop in Kihei. They gave great and honest snorkeling advice that really helped guide our week. Everything they suggested was spot on. We rented equipment. They offered options but no pressure. We would have loved to take a boat tour with them but our family wasn't ready for that level- next time we will... More

to update a previous review - they have changed their rx swim goggle offering, the basic frame is about $35 and $12 per eye to correct - at least one online retailers is much less

What a great trip on February 13th. The crew was professional and fun. The weather was a bit dicey making the crater however the caption was able to make a quick change and took us to the temple site where the visibility was fantastic and diving was fantastic. Safety first always makes for a better day.

I did the 2 tank dive on Feb 19. This is the 3rd dive I've done with Maui Dive shop and they did not disappoint. Hot coffee and bacon and eggs on the boat at 6:15 am, great staff, a couple of close encounters with whales on the way out. Molokini crater was first, visibility was good, we saw a... More

Below is a note I posted on their Facebook site which was subsequently deleted (thanks Maui Dive Shop). I am glad I didn't do business with them. Maui Dreams Dive Co, their competitor was very happy to take my money with the Kamaiiana rate. Their competitor had great customer service and not the ROBOTIC state ID police sales staff to... More

We had a great experience with Maui Dive Shop. Their crew was helpful and enthusiastic, and the dive brief was one of the best and most comprehensive we have had. The dive leader even took the time, post dive, to evaluate each diver's computer and provide a detailed dive summary. I went along as a snorkeler, which is a pretty... More

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.
