So, you’ve made up your mind to hit it big this summer. Your bags are packed, all your other plans have been canceled or postponed, and you are ready to go on the journey of a lifetime. But where should you start? Fortunately for you, we, at Banyan Tree Divers Scuba, have the perfect answer – this summer is scuba diving time.
If you have never tried an extreme sport, but always dreamed about the possibility, one of your best options is shore diving in Maui. Scuba diving is a recreational sport that’s incredibly popular among both the locals and the tourists, and it’s getting more appreciated by the day.
There are two types of scuba diving: boat diving and shore diving. The latter doesn’t require a boat to carry you to the diving location, because the entry point will be right on the Hawaiian shores. With so many beautiful Maui shore dive sites, Banyan Tree Divers Scuba focuses on shore diving in west Maui.
An experience that will stick with you forever
Scuba diving in Maui is an experience that can be forever life changing for experienced and inexperienced divers alike. Banyan Tree Divers Scuba offers photography and video of each of your dives so that you can reminisce about your incredible dive adventures for years to come.
Shore diving in Maui can be quite an unforgettable experience. That means there are several things to consider like:
Playing it slow
Take your time. Ask questions if you are unsure of any apsect 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.
Make sure your gear is 100% functional
Although it is called shore diving, more often than not, the dive point can be quite a few feet away, so you might have to swim some to get there. If you need to use your snorkel, make sure is in top condition and it fits perfectly with your mask.
Make sure that your BCD and regulator are working properly. Test everything for its functionality before attempting to enter the water. You should have a comfortable wetsuit, mask and fins. Try everything on beforehand.
Watch your surroundings
It is not uncommon to get hit by a rogue wave, fight with the tides or stumble across a fish net, for that matter. It always helps to keep an eye out for everything that may impede your oceanic exploration.
In the end, shore diving in Maui is meant to be a fun experience, where you get your family and friends and plunge into the whirling heart of nature. The team at Banyan Tree Divers Scuba is here to provide you with all the knowledge and support you might need. All you’ll have left is to surrender yourself to the magic of Hawaii.
