You made up your mind to go big this summer, and you are ready for the journey of a lifetime. But how do you start planning for a vacation to Hawaii? If you have always dreamed about the possibility of scuba diving, your best option is a Maui shore dive.

Experience Maui Scuba Diving

There are two types of Maui scuba diving: boat diving and shore diving. Shore diving means you enter the ocean from the beach. Lahaina is unique because you do not need a boat to access some of the best diving locations. There are many shore diving sites all over Maui, but our dive shop chooses to explore the areas of Lahaina and Kaanapali.

Maui scuba diving is an experience that can be forever life-changing for experienced and inexperienced divers alike. Banyan Tree Divers offers photography and video of each of your dives so that you can reminisce about your incredible dive adventures for years to come.

Maui Shore Diving Tips

Go Slow

Take your time. Ask questions if you are unsure of any aspect of the dive. Don’t rush to get in, especially when carrying heavy gear with you. Take it slow, rest on the way in and make sure to preserve your energy as much as you can.

Check Your Scuba Gear

Although it is called shore diving, the dive entry can be more than one hundred feet away more often than not. So you might have to walk or surface swim some to get there. If you need to use your snorkel, make sure it is in top condition and fits with your mask.

Make sure that your BCD does not self-inflate and that your regulator breathes correctly. Test your scuba gear before entering the ocean in Lahaina. You should have a comfortable wetsuit, a great-fitting mask, and comfortable fins!

In the end, shore diving in Lahaina is an excellent experience, and Banyan Tree Divers Maui is here to provide you with a wealth of knowledge and support. All you’ll have left is to surrender yourself to the magic of Hawaii!
