What to expect
  • For this introductory shore dive on Maui, divers are required to be physically fit and in good physical health. You’ll be required to fill out a medical waiver (which you can find on the View additional info' button towards the bottom of the page), and then submit it before arrival to the dive operator in Maui. If you wish to take part in the scuba dive, you must be able to answer 'no' to all of the questions on the waiver. If there are any answers where you need to mark 'yes,' you’ll need a doctor’s note to dive. Your introductory Maui scuba dive begins at the dive shop in Lahaina, where you’ll receive a 45-minute class on basic skills and safety. You’ll learn the proper way to don your mask and how to breathe through a regulator, as well as how to control your buoyancy and safely swim underwater. From there, you’ll journey out to a nearby beach to comfortably wade in the water, where your professional instructor will be right by your side to talk you through all the steps. While the dive site can change due to ocean conditions, popular spots for this intro dive include Black Rock, Canoe Beach, and Kapalua Bay. At each of these spots, even though the depth will never exceed a maximum of 35 feet (10.7 meters), there’s still a wealth of a colorful marine life and the chance to go diving with turtles.  Once you’re comfortably blowing bubbles underwater, follow your guide on a tour of the reef at the speed and pace that you choose, stopping to practice any techniques or skills where you feel you need work. Since the group is kept small there’s minimal pressure, and the entire dive is specifically catered around your safety, enjoyment and comfort.  At the end of the dive, if you decide you’d like to continue with scuba and work towards your certification, not only will this Maui introductory scuba dive count towards your certification, but you’ll also be registered with PADI at no additional cost.

My diving instructor Miah (forgive me if I spelled her name incorrect) was amazing. Great personality, very knowledgeable and patient. She made my first scuba diving experience smooth and one to remember. I was extremely nervous before hand but the instructor was with me the whole time and communicated very well. I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to see if scuba diving is for them or not. I will be back!

Kidz intro to Diving
Jul 2021
About 35 years ago (I'm 59) I had my first "resort" dive in Oahu. Such a thing changes your understanding of our planet. Last Thursday (7--15-21) my wife and I met Gustavo (Gu) (from Extd. Horiz's at 7 a.m.) for the purpose of introducing our son's, ages 11 & 15, to diving. Gu was an excellent ambassador and walked them through two (walk-in) dives. I was petrified when it was time for my 11 year old boy to (on the sand 15' under water) have to remove, drop, recover and clear his respirator. But Gu was excellent which conferred all the confidence necessary for my youngest. Gu held his hand through much of our amazing adventure. I cannot imagine a better teacher!

We saw a ton of fish and corral that morning, but no turtles. Gu did show us the home of one. A few days later while snorkeling another beach my youngest and I saw a huge turtle resting on the beach (and took a few selfies) and then a medium sized turtle gracefully swimming underwater. We followed it long as we could.

Our only regret is Gu is also a solo acoustic guitar musician and we were not able to catch one of his performances while in Maui. -Rich & Melissa Reilly (York, PA)

Great Intro to Diving!
Was an awesome experience to learn the basics of diving with Scuba gear while exploring the beautiful reef at Kaanapali Beach. Emma was our instructor (with help from Peter), and she did a great job educating, making us feel safe, while having a good time. Highly recommend for active individuals and couples!

We had a great experience learning to dive and the instructors were awesome. Professional, courteous, and they gave each person individual attention. The dive itself was amazing and seeing a coral reef with all its beautiful fish was incredible.
