PADI Dive Resort,established in 1970; small groups offer personalized service with aloha ( "We know where the critters are!"); Daily Introductory Dives (Intro dives count toward certification); guided reef dives; PADI certifications; underwater scooter dives on the the "hands free" Apollo AV2 Scooters; Night dives and boat dives too. We are at a beachfront location on the border of Wailea and Kihei. The waters here are calmer and clear; the inside reef is excellent for beginners and the outer reef makes for epic scooter diving! We are also mobile and can dive up to six different sites including Keawakapu Reef, Turtle Town, Five Graves, Wreck of the St. Anthony, Maluaka Reef, The Landing Craft and The Tank! Owned and operated by Diana & Steve Madaras from Catalina Scuba Luv. Check website for weekly "Critter of the week report".

Used to dive a lot some years ago, not so much lately. Diana and Steve took that into account when they took me out for their scooter dive from Makena Resort. I went on two great dives and let me tell you those scooters are a blast. I think we were out for over an hour, and I was wondering... More

This turned out my best dive on Maui. It started from the shore right in front of the Makena Beach & Golf Resort, so no cramped dive boat and bumpy rides. I have never done a scooter dive before, so Steve and Diana gave an introduction and we were first practicing in shallow water. All the dive equipment was in... More

This was our 2nd time doing the Scooter dive with Steve and Di. Both of our guides were extremely knowledgeable not to mention very fun to be around. We dove off of the Makena Beach and Golf Resort and had a fantastic experience. We saw lots of sea life and even got to go to a few wrecks. I would... More

Had a wonderful time. Took 2 scooter shore dives on my own and then did an "intro dive" with my 2 boys. Absolutely incredible! Steve was very nice and very patient. My boys were a little nervous and he completely put them at ease. Diana in scheduling was so accommodating. Great communication. Would highly, highly recommend. Will dive them Scuba... More

The staff here makes you instantly feel like family. The shop may be an oversized shed on the resort property but your not here to hang out on the beach, you're here to dive, and after a quick equipment check and explanation of how to work the scooters, you're in the water and zipping along to go explore some offshore...

We had planned only the molokini Crater dive, but were recommended to try this while over in waikiki. It was great fun, spoiled us really, it's so nice not to have to make any effort. Lazy fun dives!! Lots of cool reefs to see too. Worth a shot for something different.

We didn't go to Maui expecting to dive there, but Scuba Luv Maui was recommended to us and we took the plunge. We are thrilled that we did. We took an intro scuba dive off Kihei with Steve Harmon and had such a phenomenal experience that we did four more dives with him and finished our PADI open water certification... More

Diana was great. Helped organize the dives. It was one on one with the instructor. This was the second time I teamed up with them. It was fun and easy. Although that early morning boat was a little tough 😨

Mahalo for your review! You are so right about that early morning boat trip...we definitely wake the fish up on that trip. When you come back to Maui we have a few other options such as a 9:00 scooter dive and a Monday trip to the Wreck of The Carthaginian that leaves at noon! Much aloha! Diana and Steve More
