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".

I have always wanted to dive, and Scuba Luv Maui, and Scuba Steve made it happen, even with my restrictive schedule. I felt very comfortable from day one. Great Experience. Now I'm hooked. Can hardly wait to come back and train more.

We had 2 dives out of Mana Kai with Scuba Steve. Fantastic dives. Fab fish life and turtles on the first dive. Second dive was with scooters and that was great fun. Will be looking to book for February 2017 when we are back.

I am a certified diver that hasn't been on a normal dive in 11 years. My last type of dive was SNUBA. It was a bad experience and I had a panic attack which is the worst thing for a diver. I wanted to try another dive, but was afraid of having another attack. Finally worked up the courage while... More

I have been diving off and on for nearly 35 years. Steve and Dianna ,and Scuba Steve really know how to make someone feel comfortable and welcome. This is not your typical dive operation. These three have a wealth of experience diving in these waters and are always excited to show off the sights. The equipment selection is extensive and... More

After calling another dive company and telling them we were new divers the woman was abrubt with me and told me if we weren't confident we were comfortable they weren't the company for us - they...

We reserved a private couples beginners dive. It was offshore in front of the resort (Makena). It was easy as they just meet you down right before the sand. Our instructor was Steve Harmon. He was fantastic. Very nice and energetic. Gave us a great rundown of all the equipment, hand signals, and made sure our wet suits, fins, and... More

My wife and I did a couples dive with Scuba Luv's awesome instructor Steve. We had a beautiful time exploring the local sea life... including many sea turtles who seemed more than happy we were there to share in their environment. We're looking forward to heading back soon for our next dive.

Did the refresher dive at Mana Kai with Steve H. He was a great instructor and a lot of fun. I would use Scuba Luv Maui again.

My daughter booked a shore dive with Scuba Luv as soon as we arrived in Maui. This was only her 5th dive and had not dove in a couple of years. She was booked on a boat dive but wanted to practice from the shore first. We met Steve in the morning at the dive location. He was very patient... More

Awsome experience. Diane and Steve were very professional, organized and experienced. This was our first scooter dive. Not being very experienced divers (about 10 dives), we weren't sure what to expect with the scooters. After some brief instruction and practice, we were ready to go. There is nothing to it and it is great fun. In addition, these allow you... More
