This trip is the best boat charter we offer for kids under the age of 14 who are certified to dive but restricted by depth. There’s a lot of life in Maui’s shallow water so members of your family who don’t want to SCUBA can hop in the water to snorkel.
Beginner friendly dive sites
Maui’s shallow reef system is stunning and a great spot for novice divers (and those who haven’t dived in while who need a refresh) to explore.
Your instructor will guide you on 2 dives through clear water, offer personalized attention, and point out all the interesting stuff. You’ll come up smiling and feeling more confident in your diving abilities.

Our guests love our Maui Deluxe 2 Tank Dive
Over the years, we’ve shared the passion for the ocean with countless adventurers and wildlife enthusiasts like you. And, thanks to all the feedback and reviews, the good and the bad, we can keep on the right track and provide you with the best Maui Deluxe 2 Tank Dive.
I had a great time diving with Dive Maui last week. I did a 2 tank dive just south of Lanai. Our guide Dom made sure to point out cool things, including lobsters, a reef shark and a large snail eating a sea anemone.
Best dive ever. Nine divers, 4 staff, two in the water, means better service than a 5 star restuarant. Courteous, competent, friendly. They know their stuff, love to pass on their knowledge, and just care while still having fun. Oh, and a hundred dolphins frolicked through our dive group at Cathedral!
Great operation for divers.
No cattle boat feel, wonderfully personal and no setting of 40 minute bottom times. If you love to boat dive, this is your place while diving the west side of Maui, Lanai and Molokai.
We did 2 tank lanai cathedral dive in Feb 2020. Professional staff and good quality equipment. Dives were adjusted to the level of divers, their experience and physiological capabilities. Great atmosphere and tasty snacks on ship!
I’ve been diving on Maui several times and changed companies after loads of research. They are under new management and you can tell. The dives were awesome and we even spent time whale watching on the way back. I wouldn’t go with anyone else!

What makes this tour special
Experienced instructors and captains who love what they do and love sharing it with you.
Small group sizes and individualized attention so you have fun and feel safe.
Maximized bottom time, your air and your deco rule your dives. If you have enough air you can have 2 hour long dives.
Current rental equipment. Our BCD’s have integrated weights and regulators have dive computers so you are comfortable in the water.
Conservation oriented. Our crew cares about the health of the ocean ecosystem and does our best to have eco friendly practices.
Swimming with the local honu or turtle population is a must do when visiting Maui. Several of the sites we visit on the Maui Deluxe Trip could easily be called turtle heaven because of the number of green sea turtles that inhabit the area.
Green sea turtles are listed as critically endangered and are protected and revered in Hawaii. We are sure your encounter will leave you loving these graceful dinosaurs too.
Hawaiian monk seals, sharks, and endemic fish
While we can never guarantee what we will encounter underwater, we can guarantee you’ll see a whole cast of characters on the Maui Deluxe 2 Tank.
On a lucky day you might get a visit from a Hawaiian Monk Seal. A special treat indeed as there are only about 1400 Hawaiian monk seals left living in the wild. Friendly reef sharks are commonly found at some of our sites.
We are always stoked to spot a shark because sharks are indicators of the health of the reef. Colorful endemic fish are everywhere on Maui’s reef. Expect to be surrounded by the tropical fish throughout your dive or snorkel.
What do we see on the Maui Deluxe Trip?
The Hawaiian islands are one of the most isolated archipelagos on Earth.
Our nearest neighbor is 2390 miles away! Because Hawaii is so far away from other landmasses the wildlife of the islands is unique—nearly 40% of all our fish are endemic, meaning they cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
On the Maui Deluxe Trip your guide will point out and explain to you the wildlife you see that makes Maui so special.
Dive sites on Maui’s west coast
Our boat leaves out of Lahaina on Maui’s west side and we select our dive sites based on the conditions of the day. Depending on the season we will head north or south along Maui’s coastline searching for the best spots to dive.
Honolua Bay and the northern Coast
Leaving Lahaina and traveling north along Maui’s west coast you can expect to pass pristine beaches, lush rainforest, and spectacular cliffs.
Honolua Bay and the other dive sites north of Lahaina are part of the Honolua-Mokuleia Marine Life Conservation District. Its status as a protected area means the bay is teeming with abundant sea creatures of every color among the intricate reef.
You can expect to find huge schools of fish, turtles, mantas, sharks, and other marine life while diving in the Honolua-Mokuleia Marine Life Conservation District.
Traveling south along the west coast of Maui you will see the West Maui Mountains, rolling foothills, and white sand beaches until the boat reaches the Pali Coast.
The Pali is a stunning segment of west Maui coastline with sheer cliff faces that end in turquoise water. We often spot Hawaiian monk seals sunning themselves on the rocks along the Pali.
Underwater, the Pali is a beautiful reef system full of big stuff like turtles, mantas, stingrays and fish schools as well as macro life like cowfish, pipefish, and seahorses.
