I want to start out by saying we had an excellent experience with the Maui Dive Shop. I would have easily given them 5 stars, but when I went to pay for the dives there was $34 dollars in "hidden" charges per day! Let me explain, we did the two tank morning Molokini dive. In the last year and a... More

If you want high pressure selling, go here. They try hard to get you to use their services and insult you in the process. If you plan to go diving check out Extended Horizi

We rented snorkel gear from here and had to go back 3 different times, because my sister had issues with her mask. They were very patient and helpful! Turns out she was making the water go in her mask! Don't smile while snorkeling! LOL!

Friend of ours back home told us about this place. We decided to have our 2 teenage boys finish their PADI certification and book a few dives from them. Instructor Dave Angelescu was very informative, patient, and fun with our boys while they completed our certification. A few days later we took a dive trip with Capt. Nicole and Dive... More

Captain Lyle and his crew took us out for a two tank dive off Lanai. Our dive master, Matt, was great- fun, knowledgable and safe. The captain and the rest of the crew were great, too. Plus, we were so spoiled by having them set up our gear. We had an awesome time diving and will definitely be back! Bonus... More

I enjoyed booking with the Maui Dive Shop, and would do so again for my diving on Maui. Shop personnel were very friendly when I needed some new equipment. The boat staff and dive masters were thorough, safe, gave great briefings, and were very good at catering to us on the boat, and showing us cool stuff underwater.

Without a doubt, the highlight of out Hawaiian cruise. The boat was great, the crew better and the bar was OPEN! Plus, they fed us. Knowledgeable and helpful crew were safety conscious. They took extra time with the novices. Some guests even SCUBA dived instead of snorkeling. This was totally worth the money. Beautiful views to/from the area where we... More

Just finished diving with Maui Dive Shop at the crater. We were lucky to drift dive the back wall which was absolutely breath taking. The whole staff knew how to make this trip the best drive trip of my life. Matt was my groups guide and was solid under water. Maui Dive Shop freaking killed it today. Great job guys,... More

Had my first dives with the shop after being certified in May. I felt very comfortable with the dive masters and instructors. Did 5 total dives; one day was Molokini and drift dive on red hill, second day was Molokini and turtle town and the third dive was a night dive. Saw plenty of sea turtles, sharks, eels and beautiful... More

Great 2 tank dive. I came to Maui with no gear. They picked me up, fitted me with equipment, breakfast and lunch, and had me back at the hotel by noon. The staff was great and Jordan our dive master was fantastic. She was knowledgeable and had ton of energy. I had a great time!
