Maui Dive Shop is the go-to place (or maybe places for there are several locations) for anything you need for underwater activity. When you go into any of them to sign up for a trip, it’s easy to get distracted at the colorful racks of aloha shirts, boogie boards or rash guards. You find this array in Kihei., Wailea (Shops at Wailea) Ma‘alaea (Ma‘alaea Village Shops), and Kahana (Kahana Gateway).
You can buy or rent equipment at the shops, and you’ll get plenty of advice from people who know underwater Maui we well as the local hawksbill turtles.
A unique dive experience is the “manta cleaning station,” a location where manta rays get their enormous “wings” cleaned by tiny wrasses.
Guided dives leave from Ma‘alaea for one- and two-tank trips. Some explore the underwater St. Anthony sunken ship or go to Molokini. Cathedrals at Lana‘i is the destination of other dives. Some trips combine snorkeling and diving.
Certification instruction and specialty classes, including underwater photography, fish identification and PADI underwater naturalist are also on the agenda. Beach dives are for the uncertified and newcomer divers. They cost less that boat dives and snorkels. A one-tank beach night dive isn’t for the easily spooked.
For landlubbers, the company rents Jeeps and cars.
A sister company, Alii Nui has a sailing yacht that becomes a sunset sail vessel late in the day. You can even charter it for your wedding.
