We dove for 3 days with MDS, and absolutely loved it. GREAT crew and DMs. The dives were fabulous and had lots of beautiful and interesting things to see. Dove Molokini, Turtle Town, Mala Pier, Carthagin wreak, and drift drives. Wonderful service also on the boat with lots of great food and fun. We'll definitely be returning!!

My boyfriend David and I booked four days of diving with the folks at Maui Dive Shop. About the shop: We signed up for the free shuttle for the morning trips, which was great, and drove out on our last afternoon trip. The shuttle service was awesome, as we did not have a chance to get ourselves oriented the night... More

I signed up for open water referral PADI certification with Maui Dive shop. I showed up for the class on time, however, the instructor refused to train me because they did not like my medical despite that it was fully approved by my physician and prior dive shop. I was also perfect fine to dive with no cold and in... More

There are great things about this outfit and not so great things too. The booking process was great and easy to accomplish over the phone. The gal who arranged our reservation also was the driver who picked us up from our condo in Kahana and took us to their boat in Maalaea harbor. Althought he boat was large enough to... More

One nubbie and experienced friend went scuba diving with Maui Dive Shop and had a fabulous time. Molokini crater was spectacular. Pick up to docking was a fantastic experience. And, Robbie gave the nubbie the confidence and a better experience than her Mexico one to keep diving.

We dove with Maui Dive and their great crew yesterday, 10/26/15. We did a two-tank trip to Jabberwocky and Manta Point. Teriffic trip and very professional crew. Kyle C was our divemaster and we had a blast. Quick trip to the dive sites and lots of bottom time. We spotted a juvenile dragon wrasse and a dragon moray along the... More

Good dive shop with great guides- very friendly and informative. The fish were more evasive then I expected. Dove two days but think one day would be enough, not sure there's enough to see but maybe it was just the time of year I was there. The first day I dove there were over 20 people in the boat, too...

My husband and I booked a beach dive through the Maui Dive Shop on our honeymoon after recommendations from a friend. We couldn't have been more pleased. Since I am not yet certified and he is, I participated in an intro class first. The instruction was suburb and I was not the least bit worried going into the dive. We... More

My daughter's regulator needed repair by the next afternoon. Left it at the store for the repairman to work on first thing in the morning. Stopped by the next morning before 8:00 a.m. and it was ready. No charge!!! We had not purchased anything nor had we been on any of their dive trips. That is what I call excellent... More

Just dove 3 days off Maui with 2 companies and the Maui Dive Shop trips were by far the best experiences. The other company said they would turn on the air in tanks and forgot one diver - who jumped in believing them. Yes he should have confirmed it but they rushed everyone off the boat. Maui Dive Shop was... More
