What you'll do

Maui's easiest and most beginner friendly SCUBA diving experience at our Island's best shore diving location, Turtle Town.

No need for any previous experience or certifications. This is a fully regulated and insured PADI Discover Scuba Diving Course safe for all ages (10+) and skill levels.

{ Please read all information carefully }

I will be offering a full service Scuba Diving experience . For new divers there will be a 30 minute class discussing the equipment and safety procedures. We assemble our gear and leave from shore to swim out to the reef. We have a great scuba dive, return to shore, take apart the gear and the experience is concluded. Please be aware that this is a SHORE Dive not a BOAT dive. Maui has amazing shore diving and you will see all the wildlife we have to offer right from the beach. We will start our dive in water no deeper than 10 feet to make sure everyone is comfortable. Typical total underwater time is 40 minutes.

Private bookings are also available for those who may want extra attention or have concerns about their swimming abilities. As a general rule you should be able to swim 100m without flotation or assistance. Please feel free to message me for more information as I can accommodate non swimmers under certain circumstances.



Also, do not fly 12 hours after our dive.

Mahalo and I hope we can dive together! -Charles

    Joe was our instructor for the experience and he was awesome. We were non-swimmers and took a private tour. Joe was patient and kind enough to have a long call with us several days ahead of the experience to walk us through the details, patiently answering all our questions. Even on the day of, he went through every single aspect with us at great detail. I get nervous in water and have zero swimming knowledge. Joe guided us through the whole thing and we had a wonderful experience overall. Will definitely recommend Joe, especially if you are a non-swimmer.

    Amazing experience with Joe!! It was my first time scuba diving and Joe made me feel like a pro on my first dive, he went through all instructions very carefully and making sure I was safe and doing ok both in and out of the water. He scared the sharks out from the caves so we could see!!! We saw 3 of them!!! also saw some turtles, big eels, a lot of sea urchins and fishes during our dive. Amazing amazinggg! Thank you for this fun experience

    Joe was an amazing instructor. I was scared at first and almost bailed out, but he helped calm me down and taught me the proper way to dive. We saw sharks, turtles, fish, and so much other wild life. Absolutely amazing experience for my first dive. Highly recommend this experience!!

    Amazing experience for first-timers! Joe was very thorough with safety/equipment instructions and had a great sense of humor as well. We'd highly recommend this experience to beginner scuba divers!

    This is the first time my wife and older teens experienced scuba. Joe was very conscientious about education and safety and took great care of us once we were in the water. We all loved seeing the turtles, sea urchins, eels, and beautiful fish. This experience was the highlight of our trip to Maui.
