From the sunken reef of Molokini Crater to underwater arches teeming with sea turtles, Maui is an excellent scuba diving destination. The Hawaiian island’s relatively warm and clear seas make it and ideal spot for beginners and certified divers alike. Here’s what you need to know about diving on Maui. 

Highlights
  • Learn to scuba dive on shore dives off Maui or book a dive boat charter for sites farther afield
  • PADI, the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, offers Discover Scuba courses that allow uncertified visitors to experience diving without the pricey cost of certification
  • Discover Scuba packages include equipment rental (though for certified divers, generally only tanks and weights are included in the price)
  • Maui offers safe, shallow-water reef dives, great for beginners
  • All tours enable you to see Hawaii’s vast underwater world with professionally trained and certified divemasters

Where to Go
Most Maui scuba tours require you to meet at the dive shop or dock (many boats leave from Maalaea Harbor); if you don’t have a rental car, some tours include roundtrip transportation from your hotel. Popular beginner shore diving sites on Maui include Black Rock, Canoe Beach, and Kapalua Bay, where divers can expect to see coral reef bustling with marine life including green sea turtles, nudibranchs (colorful sea slugs), and abundant reef fish like wrasses, parrotfish, and even the fun-to-pronounce state fish: humuhumunukunukuapuaa. Experienced divers can try a night dive near Mala Pier, head to pristine sites near the island of Lanai, head to Molokini, or even visit the deep wreck of the whaling ship Carthaginian off of Lahaina.

How to Go
Some tour operators choose dive sites on the day of departure, based on currents and weather conditions—unless it is a dedicated tour to Molokini. If you have a specific dive site in mind, be sure to speak with your dive operator in advance. Because of weather conditions farther offshore, Molokini charters depart early in the morning (between 5am and 7am), while you can visit other dive sites later in the day or even at night. Keep in mind that beginner divers can’t go below 40 feet (12 meters) and are restricted to daytime diving, and everyone needs to wait at least 18 hours after a standard two-tank dive before flying.

Maui Scuba Diving Introductory Lesson from Lahaina

Maui Scuba Diving Introductory Lesson from Lahaina

star-5
120
If you’ve always wanted to breathe underwater — but never had the courage to try it — this introductory scuba lesson in Maui is the perfect place to get started. Under the watchful eye of a professional instructor and in calm, protected waters, you’ll learn the basic skills required for scuba diving in Maui. The lesson has a maximum of only four divers and, once you’ve learned the safety basics, you’ll casually kick around the reef in search of tropical marine life. When planning your trip, know that flying within 18 hours of scuba is unsafe and therefore not permitted.

With my expertise and knowledge of the local diving on Maui, you will definitely enjoy and feel safe during the dive. For members who are "certified divers" who enjoy the feeling of freedom that scuba diving gives you or for "those not there yet" and want the same experience in a short discovery dive of the local reef, I will do my very best to make it a safe and memorable experience.

You enter the water and, after a short surface swim, descend on a condemned pier that has transformed into a vibrant reef. Schools of fish surround the wreckage that has accumulated colorful corals and sponges. Turtles swim all around in organized chaos as you search for camouflaged frogfish, making it hard to decide where to look. You follow your instructor as they lead you through the obstacle course of the wreck, swimming under and through the old dock where you spot a pregnant reef shark resting under a section of cement and pause to admire her beauty. As you make your way back to your starting point you focus on the multitude of turtles that gracefully soar through the clear water.
