About Maui Dive Shop
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.

Whenever I dive Maui, I dive with Maui Dive Shop. They have a great dive platform with the Maka Koa, and her crew is top notch. Safety is paramount, and they always give a thorough briefing before you set out and very good pre-dive briefings. The crew are very friendly and approachable, always willing to share their experiences and hear about yours. This has been consistent over the last 10 years and multiple dive excursions I’ve had with them. Kudos to Captain Luke and dive leaders John F, Jack, Josh, Ernie and Ben for providing a great dive experience. A warm breakfast to start the day, tasty snacks between first and second dive and a bag lunch on the way home. all in all, MDS is the way to go when you want to dive in Maui.

Had a great dive experience ! Fun, easy going, dive-safety focused. Staff took care of all the gear and made for an easy and enjoyable dive experience. My son was newly certified and dive master Nick was great checking in with him during the dive and made effort to point out unique aquatic life during the dive. Lots of good food and drink options. Appreciate the summary dive card they gave us at the end of the trip with our dive profile details. No other dive company has provided that level of detail and it was so helpful when filling in our dive logs. Dive boat felt a bit crowded given it was Covid but we were all outside so that helps. Would dive with them again.

My husband and I signed up for the 2-tank dive of Molokini Crater and Turtle Town (we also had a few snorkelers on the trip with us, so we could both do our thing here); great experience! Jack was a wonderful Dive Master, and accommodated everyone's level of knowledge. The crew was great, too! Our only minor ding would be that we didn't know where to park in relation to the boat and ended up parking on the far side of the marina, because it wasn't clear where the boat was. Otherwise, loved it; thank you!

A great dive trip - two tank dive at Molokini Crater. First dive inside the crater, second dive on the back wall. Jack was an awesome guide, boat was sell staffed with Captain Isaiah, Guides Jack and John, and marine biologist Jess. John provided transportation to and from my Wailea hotel. Great sightings of whales and dolphins, as well as pelagic manta rays, octopus, and tons of fish (large and small) on the dive.

Had an amazing shore dive with Ernesto! He was extremely knowledgeable and went through a couple skills with me since it had been a few years since my last dive. He helped get my weighting right and gave me some much needed tips on how to descend with more success. He was great at pointing out the fish underwater. We saw white tip reef sharks, turtles and heard the whales. My shore dive made me much more confident for my boat dive with Jess a few days later. She was fantastic as well, had an abundance of fish knowledge and was very energetic for 6:00am. The captain and crew, Luke and Nick were friendly, helpful and great all around. We saw an oceanic ray, whales, dolphins and tons of fish. This really eclipsed my dive experiences on other islands. I will never bother trying another dive shop on Maui- found perfection the first time. Thanks Ernesto and Jess!!
