I have already started planning our next vacation back to Maui next year so I can dive again with Mike. I did a scooter dive and we followed 5 manta rays, saw sea turtles, eels, a huge Barracuda and all sorts of tropical fish, and dolphins past by 10 minutes after we got out of the water. During the week I got certified by Mike, and feel privileged to be one of his students. I can't wait to dive again.

My son and I decided to dive with Scuba Mike, and it blew away anything we had done on the island! Mike went over all of the safety issues prior to getting in the water while interjecting his experiences on diving, skiing and surfing all over the world. Mike is a calming presence in the water using hand signals and gestures to allow for a great experience. We could not wait to share our experience with each other when we came up and our second dive was an absolute blast using the scooters! Scuba Mike has a unique combination of knowledge, experience and humor that makes your time with him FUN!!!

This was an awesome experience!! Mike spends plenty of time with you above water going over everything so that you are well prepared for this adventure. He definitely does not rush anything. It was a pleasure hanging out with him, not only learning how to scuba dive but also about life on the Island. I would definitely recommend him for a lesson or two or three. You can even become a certified diver in as little as 4 dives with him. Thank you scuba Mike!!

I had a great experience diving with Scuba Mike. I had intended to only do an introductory dive (it was my first scuba dive) but after the first time decided to come back for a "scooter dive". Both of them were basically private lessons.

Mike explained everything really well and made sure I understood the process before going out in the ocean. Everything was paced well and while we were underwater, he pointed out particularly interesting things, like a live helmet shell, which I would never have seen if he hadn't shown it to me. The scooter dive was awesome fun, covering a lot more ground than if we had been just swimming with flippers.

I highly recommend scuba diving with Scuba Mike!

My husband and i were in maui, and happened to stumble upon scuba mike. We had never been snorkeling or scuba diving, but mike gave us some wonderful and informative instruction before hand. We had an awesome personal dive experience with scuba mike. We just wished we would of known about him at the beginning of our trip and not the last day so we could of had more sessions with him. He's an awesome instructor and totally makes you feel at home under the water. Super experience with him and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for some underwater fun!
