I just finished my certification yesterday and this place was great. We saw amazing things like turtles during our open water and met amazing people. The crew was awesome and really helped us out. Also the cookies at the end are great and appreciated after dives!!! I'm from CT and this place is worth the travel.

LD has always been a first class operation. Great boats, great equipment, great staff, great shop and always professional. The diving experience never ceases to amaze me, whether it's Maui or Lanai. Thanks LD and i can't wait for the next dive.
|Andrea Fiegle on |
We had a great time. It was fun to see my former co-worker captain Dan again. The food was awesome and the checkin was super professional. All together a wonderful experience I would recommend anytime!
|Alex K on |
Perfect diving experience with Lahaina Divers. All of the employees are fantastic, very professional and will put even a novice diver (like me) at ease. Boat and rental equipment are in excellent condition. Divemasters are encouraging and patient, Rebecca and Ron are awesome.
|Joella W on |
Awesome is all I can say!! Captain Dan took me under his wing while I snorkeled and the crew was great. We are planning on returning to Maui and will definitely spend all our dive/snorkel trips with them!!
|Joan L on |
Thank you for making our Maui trip a memorable one. It was my husband and my first dive experience outside the Philippines, and we had a fabulous time! Kudos to you all!
|Beth Chambers Carbone on |
My daughter and I had a wonderful time on your Sunday excursion to Lanai. Your group is very professional and we will definitely be back to dive with you again in the near future!
|Jacqueline Allison on |
Dove Lanai Cathedrals on 3/19/10! It was an awesome dive considering it had been two yrs since my last dive:P We saw whales and dolphins on the way to the dive sites. The crew was professional without being stuffy and they genuinely enjoy their job, who wouldn't? The ride back to dock was pretty rough but the boat capt. got us back in one piece. All in all it was a good day for a dive.
|Skip and Nancy Wilson on |
The best compliment we can give is the fact we come back every year. Many thanks to Gwen, both Johns, both Dans, Rebecca, Todd Elliott,Chelsea and the entire boat crew and store staff, who every year make our diving relaxing, enjoyable, and educational. Mahalo plenty and see you next year, if not sooner.
Say hey to the guys at Coolers and to Spike got some really good ink before I left LH.
|Jim Kennedy on |
Had an outstanding experience with LD. The Dive Masters were knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. Everyone was very customer oriented.
|Wayne B on |
AWESOME ! I had the pleasure of being on the Lahaina Divers boats 3/11-3/16/10. Shark's, Mantas's, Frog Fish, reef fish, Hammerhead shark's, swim throughs, whales, good food, GREAT crew & boats (did I mention sharks). Six days, 14 dives how much better can it get? Thanks to everybody, from the store to those on the boats and everybody behind the scenes. I had a great time and recommend Lahaina Divers to anybody wanting a wonderful diving exterience on Maui. Not to be missed is the Manta/Mala PM dive. Actually every dive I did was very cool and even did some twice just to make sure! Thanks to one of the best boat crews I have shared the water with.
|Jason & Jessica Carter on |
We had the best time on our journey to paradise. But the best time spent there was with Lahaina's best dive team! it was our second dive and we were nervous coming into it. Our first dive was a very bad experience for my wife. All nerves left as soon as we stepped foot in the shop, the crew was awesome from the get go.The dive was AWESOME We saw everything we wanted to see and much more. HUGE thanks to Rebecca for an awesome dive she was very patient and understanding as well knowlegeable with all the sealife. I couldnt have hand picked a better instructor! Thank you to the crew and Rebecca! We will be back!
|Todd Miyazawa on |
Had a Great Time.
Thanks Everyone for a fun, and safe 3 day dive experience.
We will def hit up Lahaina Divers on our next trip to Maui.
|Jody & Mike Hansen on |
We had a wonderful time on Maui, due in large part to the great job you do at Lahaina Divers.
I write a blog that goes out to a number of people and I have been writing entries about each day while we have been on Maui. I mention Lahaina Divers a lot. A number of people have been emailing us asking for more information about you, and we send them to your site.
Here is the link: http://creationconversation.blogspot.com/
We are very glad we chose your 5 star package. It was well worth it. We will do that again.
Next time we come, we will not be novice divers and will look forward to even more dives. We will be bringing our kids as well.
Thank you for making our time there amazing.
Jody and Mike Hansen
|Tom & Tina Hardwick on |
Sorry to be so long in sending this email. We were aboard the Dauntless on January 17, 2010 diving at No Name and Cathedrals 1 in Lanai with Todd, Dan and Chelsea when we saw that amazing whale activity that you guys talked about for days. We posted part of our video on YouTube. It can be found at ?Humpback Whale Tossing Calf.?
Now wishing we would have retrieved the video camera sooner and gotten more recorded, but Todd?s narration was fantastic! Thanks for the wonderful dive and whale time. We will always recommend your company to our friends, as well as returning to dive ourselves in December 2010!
|Clayton Hendrix on |
My brother and I went diving with LD in March of 2010. Capt Dan, Jarrett and Randy were an awesome team. They knew the waters and took us on some incredible underwater adventures. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to go diving on Maui.
|Vince B on |
We are now back in Japan, and back to work. We both would really like to thank the crew, Ctp Dan (great humour), Chelsea, Chris and Todd. Your have a nice setup and a very good level of professionalism. For sure, when we come to Maui, we will once again dive with your team.
|Bob Falvey on |
We made 6 dives with Lahaina Divers in February and each was better than the one before it, especially Molokini. This is a great shop, not a weak link in the hole chain, from the counter staff to the DMs. I needed an unexpected repair and Ron took care of that quickly and professionally, and with a smile.
I can't wait to go back.
Maholo Lahaina Divers!
|H Esche on |
Thanks for the great dive trip.
We were supposed to go to Molokini but strong winds and big waves made us change the venue. They found some other great places to dive and it was a great day.
I found the staff very helpful and friendly. Also quite knowledgable and spent a lot of time making sure everyone was comfortable and safe. Well done!
I will go with Lahaina Divers next time I am in Maui.
|David Nowell on |
I had a great time diving in Maui 2-15-2010/2-28-2010 I was able to make 6 dives with Lahaina Divers. Each dive you were meet by the friendly helpful employees. Lahaina Divers staff make it the perfect company to dive with. I hope to dive with them again soon. Mahalo Lahaina Divers
|Dexter Hayes on |
I love coming to Maui every February, for the whales, my conference, but most of all for the great diving with Lahaina Divers! We had a smooth trip over to Moloka'i this year and a great trip on the back wall as well. My favorite dive is turtle reef at Mala Wharf..you can see so many things!! Everyone is always friendly yet professional. It was great to see Rebecca, Captain Elliot, Captain Dan, Therese, Gwen and John and Dan, though I do miss Mike :( I see some of the same divers return each year and meet new friends, especially watching the guys play at "Life's a Beach". Mahalo for a great vacation!
|Keith Hillman on |
Thank you for a great trip. I was able to do the back wall dive and the brand new night dive to the Lanai Cathedrals. Todd was absolutely the best and made this trip one of my favorites. I have dove with Lahaina Divers for the past 6 years and you continue to improve and find great help. Thank you!
|Cesar Gonzalez on |
Thanks lahaina divers! It was amazing! Great group of people giving great service. The sandwiches were incredible, and if we were "good boys and girls", we even got a cookie at the end. :) O yea almost forgot....the diving was awesome to. :)
|Fred Woodward on |
WOW!! This was absolutely an amazing dive trip. We did Molokini & Turtle Reef a 4 dive day. The crew Captain Dan, Steven, Todd, Ron & Dan photographer were the best. Steven was so cool while helping my wife, Her first real set of certified dives. Captain Dan said that this is not a whale watching tour and would not stop for pictures, no sooner he said this on the way back from Molokini a pod was in front and then the engines were shut down and we seen a full size whale do a complete out of water jump, the coolest thing. Eveyrone at Lahaina Divers made our trip fantastic, they were courtious, helpful, freindly, knowledgeable, skilled and everthing else you would want from a dive crew. THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH !! I have been recommending your company since I stepped off the boat. In case I didn't say it already THANK YOU. Fred
|mike & katya kempel on |
Thank you to everyone at Lahaina Divers; we had a great time on our week of diving with you. The captains and crews of the dive boats were out standing. They made every effort to insure we have a fantastic and safe experience. And we did! The cookies were very good, too.
Our favorite dives were off Lania, but the turtle reef dive was very cool. That is where the pic was taken.
See you next time,
Mike & Katya
|Evelyn Palin on |
Had a great time as I do every year. I loved the Hammerhead and Manachini cave dives the most. I want to especially thank the crew for being so gracious and keeping me nice and toasty after my drysuit blew a hole. See you next year with my repair drysuit! Cheers!!
|Duke Maloney on |
Lahaina Divers is great! we Dove Cathedral I off Lanai and another dive nearby. Some of the divers were in the water when a humpback and her calf swam about 25 yds off the back of the boat - I was too slow in getting my gear on in group two to get in the water in time to see them from below. But I could hear them once I was under water....
The Cathedral was spectaculor - the "stained glass windows" were amazing, as was the coral head alter and "vestible" exit to the rectory coral garden! Bought the pricey video and was able to show my kids who now want to get certified. Ride back was quite rough, but hey, no one can control or totally predict the weather changes. Great time!
|Mark Filippone on |
I only had one dive with your company, which I was forced to abort due to a malfunction in rental equipment. I was unable to stay under because the weights came off of my BC when entering the water. Next time I dive, I'll be sure to triple check my equipment before entering the water. It was a very bad experience.
|tina bailey on |
i just wanted to thank everyone at lahaina divers!!! the cookies were the best!!!! i was certified in 2002 on a vacation to maui by your shop and have been diving with your shop every time i make it back there...after i left the island, i came to the big island and have been telling everyone to go to your shop if they are diving maui!!! your whole crew is the best....thanks again, and could you send me a cookie if I give you my address??? lol Tina B
|wayne brown on |
thanks for a great week 2/7-2/11 of diving hope to see you next year. also if kelly peterson checks in please pass on my contact info so i can share some pics. take care
|Karen Andjelic on |
My Husband and I got certified with LD in January of 2010. They were beyond patient with us and thanks to them I now can dive without the fear that used to stop me from submerging.
The love they all have for the sport is infectious, and regardless of if you are in the water, in the shop or on the boat you are with professionals who are knowledgeable and passionate, and laugh a minute and down right fun to be with.
We can't wait to go back to Maui just to dive with them all again!
Thank you to everyone at LD - you really made this trip the best of our lives!
|Dan Dmitrowicz on |
I spent a week diving with LD at the end of January. As a first-time visitor to Maui I was thoroughly impressed by Lahaina Divers right from first check-in to final goodbye. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The crews on the dive boats were very professional, always safety-conscience, and a lot of fun. Being with LD for a whole week gave me a chance to get to a lot of different sites and the crews made an effort to avoid repeating dive sites, thank you! Special thanks to Rebecca, Chelsea and Todd who were my DM's for most of the week and to Captains Dan and Elliott. Great big thank you to the whole operation, you guys are top-notch! Can't wait to come back and dive with you again.
|Grant Bucknell on |
I am a PADI & TDI Instructor and have been for over 17yrs. I have dived in numerous locations throughout the world. I visit Maui every July. I have dived with LD for a number of years now and have found then thouroughly professional in the way they conduct their dives. The boat crew are very friendly and knowledgable. Its great to see the Molikai trip is now on the regular schedule, this is a awesome dive with the hammer heads. The special ops dives are also great as you never know what you are going to get. I recommend LD to anyone visiting Hawaii and I look forward to catching up with the guys in July.
|Kimberly Lambert on |
i started diving when i was 15 and the first place i hit was of course, lahaina divers. these guys are the sweetest people ever, they helped me out when i didnt know what to do and when we werent in the water we were still having an great time. three years later and i am 18 and i still feel sad when i am gonna take a scuba trip to hawaii and i cant go to these guys, the prices are of course steep like any other dive shop but at LD its more worth it, i remember everyone there, and all the different places they showed me like it was yesterday.
oh and you cant say theyre not a good shop, not only do they have the coolest staff in the world they have c3submerged which is the best underwater photography around. dan and mike and john are a crack up and they always keep everyone laughing.
|Gwen Mark on |
Be sure to confirm that they will take you to more than one dive/snorkel spot for a full day (2 dives). We were disappointed that we were not taken to another dive spot for the second dive, especially for the price paid. We were originally told that we would go to 2 dive spots.
|Matt and Laura on |
Thanks for the noodle. The trip was great!
|Chris and Mary Putman on |
We had the GREAT pleasure of diving with LD for four days recently. Our experience was consistently exceptional in every way. The staff 's priorities were clearly: safety first, with lots of FUN. The boats were very comfortable, food good, whale watching extraordinary, and the knowledge, helpfulness, and friendliness of the staff top notch. We especially thank Dan, John, Chris,Elliot, and Steve for the great diving experiences we enjoyed. We will return!
Also: awesome videography by John!!!
|Jim Gruber on |
Thanks for the exciting dives. Especially the Manta dive. I don't know how large the biggest one was (15 plus feet???)but very impressive. Timing and knowing where to be is everything. Divemasters, boat,equipment and store all first class. Very professional. I'm looking forward to the giant cookie after the next night dive.
|Kinipeli Kinipeli on |
A friend sent me this website and I love it! The next trip I plan to Hawaii, I'm going to do this.
|Robert McKenna on |
Thank you for the wonderful dives last weekend. Both Cathedrals were amazing, but being able to dive the monolith made the whole trip worthwhile. I will be in touch when I return in May!
|Luciano Samarco on |
Estivemos em Maui logo no come?o de 2.010 e fizemos excelentes mergulhos com a equipe da Lahaina Divers.A galera ? muito atenciosa tanto na loja como no barco.Tipo do mergulho que voce n?o precisa se preocupar com nada.Os equipamentos que tivemos que alugar estavam em excelente estado.Valeu a pena! Show de bola!Tks a lot for everybody!!Save the Whales!
We were in Maui at the beginning of 2010 and made excellent diving with the team from Lahaina Divers.A folks are very helpful both in store and on the boat. The type of dive that you will not have to worry about anything. Our equipment we had to rent were in excellent state. Value it! Showed the great time! Thanks a lot for everybody! Save the Whales!
|Mark Callahan on |
I dove for the first time w/LD last week and the experience was awesome. I did a 2 tank dive to Lanai and the diving was top notch, the crew was excellent, food was good and I was very pleased.
I look forward to returning to Maui and diving again with LD.
|Weiling He on |
The dive at the Cathedral was amazing. Sunlight shines through the top openings of the cavern, like soft spot lights on the stage. Just imagine light blue in dark blue... Nature is the architect.
|Brett Natzel on |
I have been diving with this crew every time we go to Maui, which is usually 2 times a year and we have to stay in lahaina so I can dive with these guys, and she gets to shop all day. When we first started going to maui, I tried other places, but this team is top notch, the only thing is next time I want more than 1 cookie.
|Jeffrey Baker on |
All six of the dives I did with Lahaina Divers were excellent. They provide more freedom during the dives so you dont feel as if you are being led around, but still make sure that you see all the interesting things hidden in the coral. I will definitely be using them again the future.
|JARUWAN TAYLOR on |
Lahaina Divers ROCK! I hadn't been diving in over 6 years. I was nervous, but Rebecca, our guide, was really helpful and patient with me. She was AWESOME. On 12/23/09, we did the Turtle Reef Dive. With her expert vision, she pointed out octopi, moray eels, big sea turtles, and a sleeping white tip reef shark among all the tropical fish and coral. Christmas Eve was even better. We went to Molokini Crater. Jarett Fry took underwater pics for us. He was so cool! He got some really sweet shots of the white tip reef sharks and moray eel. This is a great shop! The front desk person was so sweet. She called Lahaina Stables to make sure that I wasn't going to be horseback riding 2,000 feet above elevation after my dive. How's that for service? You can't beat it! When I go back to Maui, I will definitely use Lahaina Divers again!
|Nick Valenteen on |
I have been diving in Maui since 2001, and I have enjoyed the best diving with your operation. For example, doing two back wall dives on the same trip to Molokini was the best. Going to dive sites at Lanai and Molokai sets Lahaina Divers apart from the other operators in Maui. I hope to enjoy your excellent services on 2010! Aloha.
|Kay Lightfoot on |
Hi Greg and family, We some friends who are coming to your area and want to dive so I am giving them your name and number. Would love to see ya'll tell everyone hello for me
From all the Lightfoot family.
|Christopher Struck on |
Just a note to let you know what a great experience I had diving with you during the week of Thanksgiving 2009, especially the hammerhead sharks off Molokai. We come back to Maui about every other year at that time for our anniversary (we'll probably be on the Big Island next ear...). See you in 2011!
