Sam took us out to a sunken pier and showed us an incredible array of reef and undersea life. Very personable and made me feel safe even with my rusty scuba skills.

I found Sam searching for dive options in Lahaina because I needed to re-cert and didn't want to drive all the way down to Kihei. What a great choice. Super easy to set up (via txt) and top quality gear was provided. We did two separate shore dives, once at the Kahekili Park and the other from the Mala Historic Pier that were easy to fit into my schedule. I was unbelievably fortunate to have him to myself because Maui was just reopening after COVID shutdown and the tourist crowd hadn't come back. I would highly recommend Sammy's Scuba to anyone wanting to dive in Maui.

Sammy made my vacation. My boyfriend was a nervous new diver and he made him so comfortable. We started with Lahaina divers and it was not a great first experience for him. I am a certified advanced diver but needed a refresher too, which I did not get from them. Sammy made the entire thing so relaxed and wonderful for both of us. It changed his perspective about diving! I could not speak more highly of Sammy and am hoping to bring my parents to meet him and try diving too. Thank you Sammy, you are such a professional and gave us an amazing experience!!!

My son and I dove with Sammy on two different days this past week. We recently completed our Open Water Certification so our experience level was low. Sammy was awesome to deal with. Went over the dive plan and told us what to expect current wise and what types of fish we may see. Sammy made my son and I feel quite comfortable on our dives and gave us some tips to make us better divers. His equipment was top notch as well. Total, we made 4 dives each at two different sites. If you are in Maui and looking to dive, look no further!! Sammy is the best.

My boyfriend and I are PADI Open Water Certified and like to book private scuba dives with a guide on our vacations. Based on how highly rated Sammy Scuba was online, we decided to book with them for our recent trip to Maui in December. We contacted Sammy Scuba a few weeks in advance of our trip and let them know what morning we had hoped to dive. Sammy Scuba was so responsive and even said that if there was some unexpected weather by the time we arrived, we could always reschedule for another day during our trip. We really appreciated that, as we have had other private diving experiences around the world that weren't so flexible. We contacted Sammy Scuba the day before our dive to determine where to meet. Sammy sent us a google map pin with the exact location, so it was easy for us to drive to the location. We had only brought our masks with us, so he was able to provide all the other equipment, which was great. We met Sammy at 8 am and appreciated his review of all the equipment, as we hadn't been diving in about a year. I had also mentioned to him that since I was PADI certified a few years ago, I had struggled with buoyancy on all my dives. We reviewed the weight that I had used at the recommendation of previous guides and instructors and he adjusted my weights to what he thought would work better for me. Both dives we went on were wonderful! My boyfriend and I had such a great time. We saw octopi, eels, a barracuda, turtles, and of course - plenty of colorful fish and coral. Because of Sammy's advice and adjustments I also didn't struggle with buoyancy for the first time and was able to focus the entire time I was down there and just enjoy myself! I also wanted to mention that we didn't have time to put our GoPro in a waterproof case before we left in the morning, so we also appreciated that Sammy had his GoPro on hand to take pictures for us. We were able to buy the memory card from him at the end of the dives so that we could keep these memories forever! We highly recommend diving with Sammy Scuba! When we visit Maui in the future we will definitely be diving with Sammy Scuba again!
