Our 5/3 trip to Molokini Crater was awesome. Great diving and our friends who were snorkeling also had a dandy time.
|Benjamin Chapman on |
Couldn't be more happy with our "Hawaiian experience like none other". From the professionalism of the store staff in helping make sure we were ready to dive (including rescheduling a day's dive due to a nasty head cold!), to the crew that made sure we were all there with regular roll call, pre-dive briefings and fresh cookies; my wife and I always felt we were in good hands. Mahalo and aloha!

|Brendan Clarke on |
Great team on the boat, small amount of divers (7). Great equipment, plenty of briefing and info, safe and interesting dives at shark fin rock and lighthouse. Got use all my air, very impressed would reccomend, used 3 dive companies in Maui, easily the best (Ed Robinson a close second)

|Cale and Teresa Hodder on |
Boats were nice, equipment fine, dive sites fine, dives were fine. We had a good time. Overall felt like the staff were just going through the motions (numerous examples). Will try someone else next time we are in Maui.
|Caren & Vernon Edler on |
The Molikai dive was the best dive we have ever done... we heard whales signing, saw about 10 hammerheads, 3 white tip reef sharks, a large moray eel, a gorgeous spotted eagle ray, dolphins swam under us & whales were breaching!! Awesome :) Lahaina Divers is professional, fun & worth every penny!
|Fred Morgan on |
Jenna did an outstanding job with our group. Great group of instructors all around. Thanks for the great time.
|Nicole Steinmetz on |
we had an AMAZING time diving with you guys! thanks for everything!
also, any word on what happened to the diver we rescued at the molokini crater march 26th?
|Petra Kiss on |
I would like to thank Nick Manwill the amazing dive!!!
|Roland Rick on |
Just got back from a 10 day trip to Maui. Had my 10 year old newly certified daughter with me. I was extremely impressed with you guys in terms of attention to detail, safety, and overall high level of professionalism. It can sometimes get hectic on bigger boats due to the amount of people. Things went smoother with you guys then I've seen on boats with only 6 divers. I will recommend you to anyone I know heading to Maui.

Hi Guys ~
We just wanted to pass along a HUGE thank you to Levi and the rest of the staff. When booking the dive Levi was extremely patient with us as we were unsure of our plans and had to phone in several times. Levi took time with us, answered all of our questions/concerns and appeared not to be frustrated by our lack of planning. Thank you Levi!
The second thing we wanted to point out is the fact that on both dives Levi removed debris from the bottom of the ocean floor which we were both very impressed by. Levi demonstrated his sincere concern and passion for what he does and at such a young age we were blown away.
Thank you Lahania Divers and especially Levi for making this the best dive in Maui yet! We look forward to many, many more.

This was my second year to dive with Lahaina Divers and i was impressed with the improvements. Divemaster quality was much improved and safety was their first concern. I was so pleased with this group of instructors that I took three specialty courses with them and thoroughly enjoyed each of them. The drift on the backside of Molokini Crater was awesome and very well controlled by the staff and boat captains. We had enough freedom to explore yet were kept together as a group the way a drift should be. I cant wait to dive with you guys again next year. Mahalo for the fun and Ill see you soon.Kudos to Chelsea, Stephen. Chris, Capt. Dan and others!
|JAY LEE on |
It's already been almost a year since my last visit!
The Undersea Travel 100th anniversary edition finally came out with my article regarding Maui featuring your shop.
I've really enjoyed my diving experience with great staff, equipment, and the boat. Thank you!
I've attached the entire article and your shop is featured on page 11! Feel free to let me know if you'd like a copy of the original photo.
Hope to see you guys soon! safe diving~

I went on the Molikai shark dive. There were only 6 divers which is unusual. We dropped down to 80ft with a bottom of around 140-160 and were about 125 yards from the island. We swam in the blue for 40 minutes with nothing to see. During our surface interval the divemaster ignored us and layed in the sun. Our second dive was exactly the same. Insanity is repeating exactly the same thing and expecting different results. If given a choice I think the group would have chosen a different dive profile. I decided not to do the other 6 boat dives with Lahina divers after such a waste of money and bubbles.

Aloha Mr. Hau, Thank you so much for diving with Lahaina Divers. I apologize that you did not have a good time diving with us. I will contact you via email to follow up. Thank you.
|Lucy & Axel Newman on |
Thank you Lahaina Divers on our recent pilgrimage to Maui, we had the pleasure of blowing bubbles with Lahaina Divers. Anyone think of diving in Maui I could not recommended Lahaina Divers highly enough .They are the best recreation dive operation we have come across.
Once again thank you for the memories they will last a lifetime. We are both now saving for the next visit
Cheers Lucy & Axel Newman
|helen & tony Lazo on |
We just want to thank everyone at lahaina divers for the great time we had. If you are a first time diver, this is defenetly the place to go. We had an amazing time and it was all thanks to the crew on board running everything. We can't remember the name of our instructor but she was awsome!!!!! We highly recommend this place.
|Elayne Hunter on |
I just wanted to say thank you to our Dive Master Chris and that rest of the crew on our dive in February. You have a well run organization and very competent staff.
|Joe Volding on |
Wonderful trips to Molokini and Lanai. Chris was great! I will be back next year.!
|Darin Reid on |
L.D. handled our group of 43 high school students and 6 adults with humor and ease. Everyone had a great time and we'll definitely be back. Thank you!
|Nicole Dunham on |
We have been diving with Lahaina Divers for a number of years now and always find the staff friendly and helpful. We dove Molokini crater and had a wonderful time. The dive masters pointed out many things we would have missed without their expert knowledge. Keep up the great work!
See you next year, Mahalo
|Kathy Boehler on |
Great experiences with Lahaina Divers from the intro dives thru certification and beyond. Excellent instructors, guides and crew.
|Kevin Hyde on |
Great time! 8 dives in 2 days and we saw some great diving. the crew was helpful and provided super service. Highly recommended.
|Gary Mooers on |
The crew was great on the boat. The crew in the store were snotty and rude.
Lahaina Divers Reply on
Aloha Gary, Thank you so much for diving with us. I will contact you to follow up about what happened at the store. Thank you for your comment. Lahaina Divers Owner
|Steve Lotzer on |
I really had a great time, and I always believe the people make that happen. Lahaina Divers crew are the professional, safe, friendly and helpful, on the boat and in the store. I would, without hesitation recommend Lahaina Divers to anyone. I'll see you on my next trip to Maui! Great job and thanks!
|Mary Jara on |
Loved the pictures and the update on your last e-mail. We hope to be coming there this May and will plan some dives. Wish the whales could wait for us. :}
|Ashley Young on |
LD was AMAZING! Jonathan, Dan, Levi, Elliot, Chris, Jarret, and the whole crew at LD was spectacular! The dives were awesome and we can't wait to get back to see everyone again! Boats are HUGE and nice! The whole operation is great, couldn't recommend them more!
|Carlo Riccobono on |
First Class operation. The crew is fantastic. You will experience a unforgettable trip. My 1st dive was back in 1988. I recommend this to everyone
|Cesar Gonzalez on |
This is the second time I go diving with you guys, you are great!!! Here are a couple clips I put up on youtube. I even got whales!!!!!!
|Neal Weinstein on |
Great dive on Monday afternoon with the manta rays. You can see my pics at:
|Devon Rye on |
We had a great dive trip with Lahaina Divers. The staff was fun but more importantly the crew was knowledgable and very organized. The cathedrals offered an incredible view of such a unique structure. The dives to Molokai were the best by far. The water was rough, but what do you expect from such a big channel? Fish rain was a great dive for the reef, the naval ammunition and of course the hammer-head sharks. It was an open water dive in rough water so you had to be on your toes, which in itself was part of the fun. Someone had left a negative comment about the dive but after having done it myself it is clear that their problems were diver related not crew. Great outfit! Highly recommend!
|Donna Cinciripino on |
Last week we finished up another 10 dives with Lahaina Divers. We have done about 60 dives over the past 6 years and everything and everybody has always been top notch! This trip was no exception. They always have a great crew who we look forward to seeing every time we visit. We miss some of the old staff members, but the new crew was great too. Great boats, snacks, and always fun!
Thanks to Jarett, Capt Dan, Capt Eliot, Chris L, Jonathan and Steve for a great trip! See you next year!
|Marketa Prchlikova on |
I just wanna say BIG THANKS to Lahaina Divers!!! I finished my certification here and I couldn't wish for a better place and people. Special thanks to my instructors Chris and Chris!!! Also thanks to Chelsea for wonderful underwater pictures. You guys make an awesome team :o)
|Morris Briglio on |
Had the opportunity to go out on a couple of dives while on our vacation to Maui.
The dive boat was great and "roomy" and I had lots of room for my dive bag. Don't often get that chance.
Nicole was great and extremely knowledgeable.
Both she and the captain (forgot his name) where very helpful with a great sense of humor (including using the goggle defogger as a water pistol)and made us all feel welcomed.
Will definitely use LD on all future trips.
|Mark Bair on |
Jenna was amazing. She did a great job for us.
|Kevin Olson on |
I have been diving with LD for 8 years now and have always had a great time. LD's boats are well maintained and crew very professional and knowledgable. I highly recommend the Moliki and back wall dives.
We will return to the island next month and I am anxious to get back in the water with the team from LD. See ya in a few weeks.
|Alisa Dye on |
Overall very satisfied as these were our first salt water dives. Only negative comment is don't go with Jonathan on the crew if you are offended by the "F" word.
Lahaina Divers Reply on
Aloha Alisa,Thank you so much for diving with Lahaina Divers.We are following up with Jonathan, and we will email you soon.Thank you again for choosing us.
|Dave Perkins on |
My wife and I loved these guys!!! Have been diving with them for a week and a half. Safe professional and passionate about the ocean. They really had the back of a lot of divers. Very patient and calm. All the Captains were GREAT, but of special note is Capt. Dan. He is totally committed to the safety of the divers, comaraderie and enjoyment of the marine environment.
All the crew we sailed and dove with were top notch: Capt.s: Jonathan, Ron, Chris, Jarett and Dive Masters: Chris, Nicole, Chelsea, Jenna, Stephen, Dan...simply the best. So hard working, so knowledgeable.
Best dives recommended: Molokini back wall drift and Lanai Cathedrals.
We were here in Jan-Feb. We saw so many humpbacks, and heard so many whales singing underwater it was crazy. We had such great experiences that we never felt like taking a whalewatching cruise. - Dave Perkins, Coos Bay, Oregon
Lahaina Divers are very organized, and concerned with everyone! I loved how their enthusiasm was contagious and how they made the diving experience fun! Thank you for making our many dives outstanding!
Cissie Perkins, Coos Bay, Oregon
|Marianne Brazell on |
We are amazed, again! Thanks to Captain Dan and crew for making our 8 dives over the Christmas break absolutely marvelous! Your professional crew really took time to inform and instruct us so our dives were perfect. We recognize that having a dive master to show us the sights is going above and beyond and contributed significantly to making our experience fantastic. Special thanks to Chelsea for the beautiful pictures! We hope to see you all again next year! Aloha!
|Rebecca Jimenez on |
Fantastic dive in Lanai! Great divemasters, large boat (with very few divers) and quite accommodating to my buddy's sinus trouble. I would definitely go out with these guys again...if I can just get back to Maui.
|Douglas Rorex on |
Loved the dives at Molikini. The whale watching on the return trip was better than the actual whale watching cruise we took a few days before.
|Don Raake on |
Dove the crater on 1/23/11 as recommended by the shop if we only had one day to dive. Dan, the Captain, wasn't the most warm and fuzzy guy but offered his experience with the area.
Although it was an easy dive, wasn't that impressed with the dive site. Really would have liked to have seen more sea life.
Second dive at the crater involved jumping in close by the whales in deep water to see of we could see them. Never did see them, or the bottom for that matter, but heard them.
Had three separate dive groups on the boat, but it didn't seem too crowded.
Overall experience was okay.
|Linda Williamson on |
We are currently in Hawaii and diving with Lahaina Divers. So far, we've done Turtle Reef, a night dive and Molokini Crater. 3 charters down and 3 to go! So far, we have been very, very happy with the staff. Your store staff, boat Captains and Dive Masters are fun, helpful and very knowlegable! My only complaint is the number of people you stuffed on the boat on Saturday's trip to Molokini. The boat was extremely crowded and we were on top of one another. Also, when dividing the group it would be helpful to try and pair up all of the advanced divers together. I was once a beginner and realize everyone needs to start somewhere. I just prefer that it isn't running into me while I'm trying to enjoy my dive. Looking forward to Lanai, Molokai and Molokini back wall this coming week!
|Taylor Merrill on |
My dive trip was awesome. We went to lollipop the first day and it was by far the most unique fish I had seen our second day we dove at lanai and the cathedrals were gorgeous. It was a great dive and our dive guide jermey ( best dive guide ever ) took great underwater photos which will last us a lifetime of memories. When we originally booked our dives I was concerned we would have a large group because there was six with us but it ended up working well because it was us six with one dive guide and in the end we ended up getting nicknamed the Merrill clan.
|Dan Leyde on |
I went on the Molokai trip on 12/31/10. Very heavy seas made getting on and off of the boat difficult. I thought the dive site was mediocre. We did see one hammerhead shark and another unidentified type. However, given the difficulty due to the rough conditions coming and going and the higher price I would not recommend this trip.
In 43 years of diving and boating it was the first time I ever tossed my cookies over the side.
I have enjoyed other dive sites that you go to much more.
|Thomas McPherson on |
My wife and I were only PADI certified prior to our trip to Hawaii with the intention of getting our full Open Water certification. I was more than a little nervous but Jarrett, our instructor, could not have been cooler and did a lot to ease my mind. We both passed and thoroughly enjoyed our dives to Mala Pier and Molokini Crater later that week. Everyone @ Lahaina from the Dans and Chrises to Jarrett and many more were all very accomodating and made for a great diving experience every time. We will definitely use them again should we find ourselves on Maui again.
|Dean Guite on |
Our diving experience was overshadowed by murky waters and issues with other new divers who had to constantly resurface, but after letting the owner of the company know how unsatisfactory it was, she did everything in her power to compensate us and make a not so great experience turn into a positive one and invite us back pleasantly for another diving trip. Because of her efforts in contacting us and making us satisfied, we will again use their company again should we return to Maui...and this is no slight to their friendly respectful fun staff on our trip!
