I've been diving with LD over the course of the last 4 trips I've taken to Maui. Both Captains and crew have always been terrific. These guys do this every day and it shows in their experience all while keeping the enthusiasm up. I've always had great things to say about the crew on the water but this past trip, I had an experience with the shop staff that really stands out.

I had my annual regulator service performed by my home dive shop before I left for my trip. Come to find out on the first dive that I had a leaky second stage. I took my reg into Ron at the LD shop where he immediately tore it down completely and spent at least an hour fixing it while I waited. It ended up being a little more serious than we initially thought, so I left while Ron kept working. I picked it up the next morning when I checked in and it worked perfectly. I totally owe Ron for saving me from missing a day of diving.

I recommend these guys to anyone- no matter their skill level.

PS- the hammerhead site is a once in a life time dive. Gotta do it!

Dove the crater area of Molokini. Don't be fooled by Erica's tender looking age, she's a knowledgeable and enthusiastic Dive Master. Really liked the yellow jacket she wore while diving, so much easier to stay with your group when she's so easy to spot. One of our group had an issue while diving, which was quickly solved and didn't affect the rest of us or our dive.

Did a 2 dive trip to Lanai with Joe the Divemaster. Excellent service and a very comfortable boat. Lots of fish and structure. Wish I was diving the Molokini instead of snorkeling.joe briefed us on the fish we would encounter before the dive. He knew a lot about the local fish that really made the dive more interesting.

I have dived Molokini crater and back wall, turtle canyon, Cathedrals (Lanai), Molokai hammerhead, the Carthaginian (?sp), and a night dive. Each experience has been great and the dive masters are both professional and friendly. They remember me by name each time I come back and I really appreciate that. Also, with each subsequent dive, they offered me deeper discounts on the dives.

I will always come back to Lahaina divers when I'm on Maui. I initially chose them because they offered the best value on dive packages including service to Lanai and Molokai- must see dive sites.

I have read numerous marginal and poor reviews of Lahaina Divers on this site. I would not have booked the dive here, but our concierge recommended them. He was right and the reviews were wrong. We made two boat dives on consecutive days. The crews were awesome. We had no issues with equipment. The boat was well maintained. Our dive guide was great. Two people in our party had not been diving in about 10 years. The guide paid a little extra attention to them, and made sure he was available if needed. Thanks Dan!! The dive guides are conservative regarding dive time and minimum air at surface. I personally would have drawn a couple of hundred more psi from the tank, but I absolutely respect safety decisions without compaint. Lahaina Divers, mahalo!!
