My son and I got Scuba certified in July. I cannot begin to tell you how awesome Rich Carman (Manager) was in getting us set up to complete our certification. We booked months in advanced to ensure our dates, and I had a million questions come to mind along the way. Rich always replied on the same day, and he... More

We dove with mike- a great instructor! In there was 3 of us, all with less than 20 dives and mike did a great job of making us feel comfortable in the water. He was good at pointing out wildlife: turtles, Sharks, frog fish, squid, Rays, and more! Probably some of the best diving we have done! Very friendly staff!... More

We went for our honeymoon and rented equipment from Rich at Maui Diving so that we could shore dive. Rich was a wonderful, relaxed, positive individual and we enjoyed dealing with him. Equipment was great. Had some good dives then had a poor vis dive being rocked by waves so we stopped by and had a chat about diving sites... More

I received my open water certification here this Spring and was so lucky that I not only got an amazing dive instructor (Mike) but the certification sessions ended up being private lessons as the other two girls in the group never showed! Besides that, Mike was incredibly knowledgeable and patient and even took my brother who was already certified and... More

I did my open water certification a couple of weeks ago following the reviews posted here. Everything everyone said was absolutely true. I can't speak more highly of Rich in the shop or of his young son Mitch or of my diving instructor Alex (maui_adventures on Instagram). Everyone was great, the instruction was top notch and the diving adventures on... More

My girlfriend and I had our first scuba dive experience here. We opted for the discovery dive since we didn't have enough time to pursue certification. Alex took us to a spot on Kaanapali beach with awesome views of several different kinds of fish. He explained the safety hazards and equipment use very well. We were a bit nervous about... More

Well organised, went out of their way to accommodate us. Thanks Alex and Rich! Needed to do a very early dive to degas before flying - think our DM woke up at 5 for the first time in a while - all with a smile

Here's a note I wrote to the manager after our visit. Rich: Don’t know if you will remember me, but about a week and a half ago my wife and I came into your shop to buy a mask for snorkeling. You told me that my noggin was rather large and settled on a rental mask that you sold to... More
