“Thank you !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

Thank you SO very much for your kindness, patience and generosity.
My scooter dive was one of my best dives ever. What an amazing experience!!
Thank you for the love, kindness and consideration that you gave my wife and her fear of the water. You were so patient and caring. We have decided to make a special trip to Maui so she can get certified with you. We both felt so comfortable and safe with you both. You felt like family. Its difficult to find divers such as yourselves.
We cant wait to see you soon. Hopefully in a few months.

Take care and see you very soon

“Great 1st Time Dive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

I went with my 13-yr old son for a first time scuba lesson. Steve and Diane were the instructors. We had about 1/2 hour basic instruction in the pool, then an ocean dive for about 40 min. A really nice bonus were the complementary pics posted on thier FaceBook page. Makena beach is tame, and great for a first dive. We saw a turtle as well as many fish. Higly, highly reccomended. Steve and Diane are great.

“I want more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2011

Had a fab dive with Steve and Diana off Makena in Maui. I've dived in Egypt, Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia; this was definitely one of my best dives. Great viz, awesome experience with the scooters and good sightings (although seeing a dolphin and/or manta would have been icing on the cake). Steve and Diana were really great: professional yet relaxed, accommodating and fun. Safety is a big concern for me and I felt totally confident in their preparations and guidance. The video (at no extra charge) on Facebook was really a classy and nice touch. Overall, while the dive was pricey, it was worth it! I was left wanting more!
