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.

We loved diving with Maui Dive Shop. Very professionally run company with excellent service. Diving spots are ok, and the crew goes the extra mile to show marine life, but Maui is not the top diving destinations. Much celebrated Cathedral is a good spot, but again not up to the hype. Only minus the staff at the shop at Maalaea... More

Whilst I am an experienced diver my partner isn't and when she tried to dive she couldn't equalise. So had to sit out whilst I dived (at her insistence!). The boat skipper also requested she not try again for second dive so it was a bad day for her and costly. The next say we spoke to the dive shop... More

On our recent stay in Maui, we booked a morning SCUBA trip to Molokini and another site. The whole experience was enjoyable, they have struck just the right balance between laid back fun and attention to safety. Gil, our dive master, was great!

Maybe we were lucky because it is not high season, but we had a great dive with Maui Divers. We were 4 divers with different levels of experience and we had two different dive masters/instructors. Listening to the briefing given to the new divers I was impressed on how thorough it was. Our Divemaster/instructor Robyn was excellent and made the... More

Great experience! Larry was an awesome instructor who made us feel comfortable and relaxed in the water. He was very knowledgeable about all the fish and we got see an octopus plus so many different types and colours of coral! On top of that he gave us so many recommendations for yummy local foods including poke and fish tacos! We... More

Me and my wife scheduled a dive with Maui Dive Shop. We arrived at the shop to pick up gear and was greeted by the store attendant that obviously does not like his job. We did not feel welcome and basically felt we were inconvienceing him. After getting the gear we had to ask where the dive boat was parked... More

I rent my snorkeling gear here for a week. Was a good deal, only 25.99 for 7 days. Great staff and easy to talk to. We also booked a snorkeling trip on Maui Dive shops ship, easily the best decision we made all trip.

I had the opportunity to travel to Maui twice this year(2016); in March and now on October (as well as previous years). I always look forward to the dive excursions on the Maui Dive Shop boat, the Maka Koa. Once again, I was so very impressed with the crew and operation of MDS! They have demonstrated consistency of excellence. They... More
