Maui Dive Shop offers small group SCUBA diving trips to at least two different destinations every day of the week.

Maka Koa, our Pro 48' V-Hull, twin-engine, jet driven dive boat, takes up to 24 divers out of Maalaea Harbor, providing comfortable seating and amenities for a quick, safe, convenient ride to each dive location. The boat is equipped with a marine head (bathroom), fresh water shower, padded seating, and all necessary safety equipment. Knowledgeable crew members will provide an on board briefing to familiarize you with the boat, our equipment, and the spectacular marine life. A full breakfast and deli lunch, as well as refreshments, will be served on board. Free transportation from the South & West sides of the island is also available.

NOTE: We do offer Introductory Dives from the beach for anyone interested in trying SCUBA diving.

My sister and I booked a dive trip when we arrived in Kihei in late January about 3 days in advance of the trip. I received a voicemail at 3:00pm the day before (with a 6:00am call time the next morning) informing us that the trip was cancelled as there were not enough divers signed up to run the trip....

Although we find diving in the US a bit pricey, we still try to get in at least one excursion when we visit the coasts. This one was a similar price as the shore dives offered in Florida; so relative to Florida, the price was great given this was a boat dive. We always book our dives as soon as... More

I called the shop to ask if they had a 3/2 long sleeve shorty in my size. They said yes so I went there. They didn't have it but kept telling me various 2 mm were 3/2. They also seemed much more interested in making the sale than being honest or informative about size. I ended up buying a 2... More

Amazing crew on the 3 hour snorkel tip - saw whales up close from the boat and even turtles - the snorkeling along the ref was superb - one of us did the huka dive and are now determined to get scuba certified.. Fantastic hospitality with snacks and our favorite beverages- crew was exceptionally accommodating- kudos to Captain Rick, hukamaster... More

Well organized, attentive, safe and lots of fun. The Molokini Crater/Turtle Town dives were, lacking a lot of colour, enjoyable rather than jaw-dropping, but the highlight was in fact having our boat mobbed by humpback wales on the way back – much more close and personal than on the whale watch tour we had been on the same week.

Great trip with Captain Chris, Gill and Rivers. one of best dive briefings I have ever had especially for someone who had not dived in a while. Breakfast, snacks and lunch and drinks provided. picked us up at hotel. Equipment was modern and labelled and they took care of everything. We dove Cathedrals (I and II) and Molokini deep wall...

Fantastic trip with Captain Isiah and our Dive Guide Dave! Lots of colorful butterflies, triggerfishes, tangs and puffers, then close ups with green sea turtles!! On the way back into port, we had a few closeup whale encounters too!! A whale dive tail "money shot", then a baby and two adults swam right next to the boat and then under... More

Really poor quality snorkel equipment...Take my advice and rent snorkel gear elsewhere. Overpriced for very, very, very poor products - much better deals and higher quality snorkel gear right down the street or elsewhere on the island. Many of the sales staff are very snotty, and make customers feel like they're are looking down their nose at you, when I... More

Took the trip to Molokini and Turtle Town on Jan 24th. Captain Chris and his crew are total pros. Rivers, our dive master, did a great job finding and pointing out all kinds of interesting aquatic life, preceded by a comprehensive orientation and safety briefing. The icing on the cake was seeing a humpback whale breach off the bow of... More
