SCUBA Diving On Maui

The best SCUBA diving is in South Maui and below are some choices. We have tried more SCUBA companies on Maui than we list here, but we don't list the ones we would not dive with again.

  1. Maui Dreams. Excellent shore dives and also a great place to get certifications. Ask for their full face mask diving, or for their scooter dives which are the most fun you can have underwater. If you are comfortable going on your own, they have maps of the local dive sites, e.g. Ulua beach, Makena Landing.

  2. Island Style Diving. Haven't dived with them yet, but including here beause it is run by the same good people that took over Maui Dreams (above) and it is the same boat that was used by the now closed Mike Severns Diving (below).

  3. CLOSED Mike Severns Diving. If you are lucky the coral will be spawning when you are on-island and they can take you to see that. Overall our favorite boat outfit, because you get to learn so much about the behavior of the marine life.

  4. Prodiver Maui. A good choice for Molokini diving.

  5. CLOSED Ed Robinson's Diving Adventures. If you are experienced, ask for their advanced-only Adventure-X 3-dive day.

  6. CLOSED Scuba Shack. Fastest boat to Molokini, always new equipment if you are renting it all, and captain Charlie is a character. Their shop is near our condo, opposite Kamaole Beach I.

  7. CLOSED BB Scuba. Probably the cheapest SCUBA boat trip in Kihei.

  8. Maui DiamondIf you want to dive out of Maalaea (and for West Maui diving this is the closest departure due to the Lahaina fire), and don't mind a slightly larger boat, Maui Diamond has you covered. Solid outfit, run by the same folks who used to own Maui Dreams.

  9. CLOSED Extended Horizons. All outfits above on this list are in South Maui leaving from Kihei Boat Ramp. If you end up in Lahaina looking to dive, ask these guys to take you to the Lanai cathedrals, and the Carthaginian Boat wreck.

  10. CLOSED Lahaina Divers. The other option in Lahaina and the only folks that can take you on the famous Hammerhead dives near Molokai.

  11. Maui Ocean Center. Not really a SCUBA outfit, but there is a SCUBA-with-sharks option. We mention this under the Non-Water Activities section and here is a direct link:
