“Incredible experience-completely worthwhile!!!”
Review of Prodiver Maui

I could barely wait to write a review on this operation. I have never written a review before but I needed to express how great of a time my group had!

We never had to lift a finger once! Everything was done for us! Particularly interesting creatures I would have passed up alone were pointed out thanks to our dive instructor, Liz! Our captain, Paul was always a short boat ride away and would pick any one up whose air went out before the rest of the group. Thanks to those two, we had the best dives of our lives!

We dove three days with prodivers. I had originally looked at booking with another dive company, but after looking at the reviews on trip advisor and scuba board I decided to go with this operation.
Hubby does not like getting up early in the morning and from where we were located we had to get up at 4 a.m. to get to the boat on time but it was so worth it.
We had Liz as dive master for the whole three days and what a treat that was. Her dive briefs are full of what you are going to see, including what behaviours to look for. She sets a good pace underwater , not a race as we have had some DMs do, and once she knows your level she will let you do your own thing within reason. Nice for hanging back a bit and watching the fish or trying to take pictures.
Liz take care of everything gear wise by asking first, not assuming that she can, for those that like to do their own gear setup.
They have lots of goodies on board, chips, muffins, bars, water, pop, coffee, hot chocolate and fruit for SIT times. How nice.
It was also nice having a head on board too.
I also wanted a small run operation not a cattle boat. Six divers plus crew was great.
We had captain Byran for two days and Paul for the one day. You can see that all have respect for each other and are a fun group to be with.
they will call other dive boats to see how the vis is for the different sites so that we divers get the best experience in diving.
I know there are a ton of dive operations to go with but going with Prodivers was the best decision.

Went out on a 2 tank dive 6AM on a Tuesday. Met the boat at the boat ramp. Big plus that the boat was already in the water and all the gear was setup. Paul was the boat captain and Pete was the dive guide. We headed out before any of the other boats were even in the water. So we had something like the "first tracks" in the water and at the dive sites.

We didn't putz around waiting for a dozen other folks to get their act together.

5 divers total - 3 moderately experienced, 2 novices.

The boat is small and has been put to work of the years, but we had no problems.

Paul, very professional and approachable and knew what he was doing.

Pete gave us a little orientation about what we would go see, and how the dives would play out. He was a super nice guy on board, and took care of the group on the water. Late 20s early 30s surfer diver type. But not a burn out, not a novice, not a show off or arrogant.

They managed all the equipment set up and clean up. Drinks, fruit, cookies and snacks etc.

Pete took our small group into some great caves and we got chased by a few turtles. He also just kept an eyes on us and made sure we were all having fun. 80feet+ on dive one; 25-40avg on dive two.

After diving in many places in the Caribbean, Mexico and Costa Rica, this was my first time diving in the United States. This service experience was by far the best, efficient and relaxing. The diving in Jamacia was more interesting because of the coral reef.

Tipped the crew ~20% of our purchase price.

Definitely recommend the company for an easy fun time.

My husband and I went diving in a small 6 person group to Molokini back wall/Red Hill with Bryan and Matt. It was a great morning. We were the first to arrive at Molokini and had the backwall to ourselves. Matt was an excellent guide. I felt safe and comfortable diving with him. Bryan was a great captain. They both pointed out interesting things to explain and look at above and below the water, and offered food and drinks all along the way. They were also both very professional and made it a priority to make sure everyone was having a good time and was well taken care of. The rental equipment is newer and high quality. I'd definitely recommend them.

This was the best dive experience I have had in my 30 years of diving! Our dive master Matt was very knowledgeable and the captain Bryan was very competent and very helpful. They do all the work. You just sit down and the equipment comes to you. It was awesome, especially for my wife, who had not been diving for a few years. The small number of divers (6) helps a lot to make the experience great. We did 3 dives off Molokini Island (which is a creator) and also the "Turtle Town" dive. All of them were great. The dives were great, but the the crew makes Prodiver the premier company to go with.
