Just fabulous. The most professional and fun pre-dive briefing I've ever seen. Wish we could duplicate Blaze everywhere else we dive! Thx, Blaze!!!

Mahalo to you Allan! While I'm just a kid a heart, I also have a deeply ingrained professional side from my experiences in the U.S. Navy as a Rescue Swimmer and an 8 Year Beach Lifeguard for San Diego City.

I've learned to plan, plan, plan,
execute,
and then have as much fun as you can, can, can!!!

I love to facilitate and enhance water skills with all my divers to provide an experience that reinforces safety and comfort...

Aloha to you and the family, see you again!
Blaze

Blaze is such a pro on diving and photography, best dive trip ever. It's like all the marine life is part of his family, he will train you with ease if you have never been diving before, the location is one of the best places to dive in Maui .he also has other location that are amazing . If you get the chance do a night dive with him get in his schedule .If you are going to maui you must meet and dive with blaze . You will not only have a great experience you will also make a friend

Aloha Kyler, thanks for your review and for sending out many of your friends to experience my version of Maui's undersea world!

I'm proud to be able to easily guide beginners and advanced divers to unique areas for visiting with the turtles and other fish life...

Let's work on getting you on the scooters for our next level of scuba adventures!
See you soon, Blaze

We found Blaze online and signed up for our first scuba dive with our older daughter, who had done it a couple of times in Mexico. He explained everything really well and had us try the equipment in the pool before we entered the ocean. Then in the water, he found us a baby octopus and let us touch and hold it, while he took amazing pictures for us. Then we saw a speckled ray and a baby turtle in a small cave area...so beautiful, and he was a fun and helpful guide.

Aloha and Mahalo for your review. I am just as rewarded as you when we have such a successful experience together learning to breathe underwater! I appreciate your trust when allowing me to lead you into the great unknown, and explore the reef for sea life. I hope you always appreciate and share your respect for our beautiful island, sea, and critters...Keep exploring and challenging yourself to expand your limits and enjoy planet earth!.

My tween/teen daughter and I have been on about a dozen scuba / scooter dives with Blaze. He is at the same time very safe, and very chill. I think he knows most of the Maui sea life personally. He will locate the octopus in low vis, and somehow convince you to put it on your head, send you the awesome film, and have you thoroughly enjoy the process. He has unusually good defog.

Gregg, Thanks for the review and your fascination with the He'e, or Hawaiian Day Octopus!
We love those creatures and look on every dive!
Once you get the "Tako-Eye" they become visible around the reef..Kinda like those 3-D stare but unfocus your eyes images!

I look forward to more adventures together, and Kikaha the tiger Shark misses you!

I've been diving for 15 years and never have I consistently enjoyed my dives so much as when I dive with Blaze. It's more than the beautiful location and the many new things Blaze somehow finds on each dive, it's that he brings a vibe - from start to finish - that just makes it a great experience. It's a mellowness combined with a true appreciation of the magic of being under water that I think sets Blaze apart as a guide and a teacher. That, and the care he takes to make sure that each person feels comfortable and safe in the water.

Blaze is also an excellent photographer and my two small boys love to see all of the wonderful photos and videos of our dives. My boys aren't ready to dive quite yet, but when they are I will be calling Blaze to teach them the right way to do it.

Aloha Stuart! Thanks for the outstanding review!
As you know, I can translate all my advanced experience into easy tips for divers of all skill levels. As an advanced diver, you challenge me to provide a custom experience above and beyond a normal group boat dive experience. You are perfect testimony to the special times we have underwater visiting Maui's unique aqua-scape.
I look forward to more explore time with you and the boys!
Shaka, Blaze
