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".

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

This dive operation is top notch! Easy to communicate with, accommodating, relaxed, and very professional. The scooter is easy to learn to operate and it's so fun to "fly" over the reefs. I highly recommend Steve & Diana and the whole experience!

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
