Me and my friends haven't tried diving with scooter before and this experience was a lot of fun! Diana and her husband were very attentive before and during our dive. They explained well how to operate scooters, what to expect, etc. We all had a wonderful time and I would recommend Scuba Luv if you want to try beach dive... More

Diana was very responsive to emails when I began to inquire about dives and very helpful with scheduling each of them. As for the dives, Dive Master Steve H. was very helpful and planned each dive with his divers in mind. Each dive was amazing and very unique. The Lost Reef scotter dive was breath taking; no pun intended😉. Owner... More

I needed a refresher course as I hadn't been scuba diving in years. The price was very reasonable. This included the refresher course and the dive, and the instructor Matt was great! Very professional, friendly and patient. I never felt rushed, and the dive was perfect. Matt took lots of pictures, and offered them via Dropbox for an extra fee.... More

I am a certified diver that had not been diving for a few years so I needed a refresher course. Matt came to the rescue! All his instructions were clear and gentle. I never felt rushed. He took the time to show me different fish or coral that I had not seen elsewhere. The scooter was also a lot of... More

If you have never done a scuba dive with a scooter, do it. It really its a lot of fun! Steve and Diane are great owner operators. They are kind, attentive, and really take care of you. Their equipment is in great shape and they make sure you enjoy yourself.

I went to Maui for one week and wanted to dive at the Molikini crater, where you need a licence for. Scuba luv Maui was able to give me a 2-day course in diving so that I could obtain the scuba diver certificate. Matthew was very nice and gave clear instructions on what to do in certain conditions. On the... More

Got my PADI Scuba (just 2 dives) with Matt this week. He was very patient, and communicated in a clear way. Diana is very responsive to e-mail. The location is also super easy; we used the beach right in front of the Mana Kai Resort (with lots of facilities).

Much mahalos for writing a nice review. We just wanted you to know we actually DO offer boat dives from either LAHAINA HARBOR or the KIHEI BOAT RAMP. We are not limited to just one boat that goes to one location. We have six different boat options offering trips to MOLOKINI CRATER, MOLOKINI BACK WALL, LANAI, MOLOKAI, BOAT NIGHT DIVES,... More

I did some really lovely dives with Matt. He's an awesome instructor and guide. The knows the area and the creatures in it very well. The underwater scooters are the best thing since sliced bread and turn dives that used to be boat dives only into shore dives.
