Scuba Steve was great on my refresher-recertification. I was my 1st ocean dive in a while, as most of my dives were fresh water. I had a blast!

Wonderful family experience. Very professional. I highly recommend Scuba Luv for taking the open water certification and for booking dives on Maui.

I had never done scooter before and Matt brought me up to speed quickly. Using a scooter is a blast and easy to pick up. Of the 45 minutes underwater we spent about half of the time on the reef and half in transit along a sandy bottom. Visibility was about 50 ft so not outstanding. Heard whales, saw a... More

It was a really pleasure to get back into my diving with Matt. He reviewed all the safety, knowledge and equipment clearly and quickly with me. Then it was to the reef. Calm relaxing and enjoyable. I was lucky to be the only customer that day but knew that at most there would be only four. I had so much... More

Steve and Di were very easy to work with. We will definitely do this again next year. The scooters are quite cool in that you straddle them and your hands are free. You feel like Superman gliding through the water. The water can be a little murky close to shore, but the brightly colored gear helps you stay with the... More

The couple running the dive operation were great. We had a shore dive and used the scooters which were a lot of fun. However was really disappointed not to see many fish, and the coral was not colourful as I expected. We didnt see a turtle unfortunately. Great dive though and the scooters were very easy to master.

While my girlfriend and I we're on our vacation together in Maui I really wanted her to try scuba diving. Scuba Luv was decently cheap, met us right outside our hotel, and made it a very enjoyable experience for us both! We saw lots of fish a turtles and it was a very easy shore dive. It couldn't have gone... More

My brother and nephew dove on the scooters with Di & Steve last year. So for the past year, all we’ve heard about was this dive. This year we decided not to miss out. Di and Steve are great people and they have a great staff too. Since we were a big group of six, we had three guides; Steve,... More

We went shore diving with Scuba Luv in November and had a fantastic time. They treated us like royalty and were very considerate and patient. We have an 11 year old son that is a certified diver and they took extra care with him. Thank you for some great dives! Looking forward to the next time!

I gad been out withe Steve and Di on Catalina Island and previously on Maui, but had not been in the water for a few years, and never done a scooter dive. What a great dive! Great guides, great gear, and too much fun! Scuba Luv Maui made it an enjoyable and safe dive without making it boring and overly... More
