Things to see
With us, you can expect to see a wide variety of creatures. Moray eels are a common sight. The yellow margin moray eel is an abundant resident that can grow as long as 4 foot. You might also see the slightly smaller spotted moray eels hiding in the coral crevices. This, of course, is why we say not to stick your hand in any hole. A unique site would be if we got to see a dragon moray eel.
Most divers come to see the turtles that live off of the Maui Shore. Airport Beach is a massive dive site, but Turtle sightings here are hit and Miss. The most common at this site is the Hawksbill Turtles which are here during the summer and fall months. 25% of the sea life that is found here can be found nowhere else in the world. One of these is the Hawaiian damselfish. You can also see the Hawaiian Monk seal.
Some of the places that Banyan Tree will take you Mala pier where you are almost guaranteed to see a turtle as well as a white tip Reef shark. You will have to look hard but can most likely see the well-camouflaged frogfish, crabs and scorpion fish. When visiting this area, you must remember we are in their world. So keep your hands to yourself. Take all the photos you would like but please do not handle the marine life. The second thing is to protect the coral. Watch where you are kicking as you are swimming around not only will kicking the coral leave a nasty cut on you it can kill the coral. Make sure to listen to your instructors so that you are entering and leaving the water legally and safely. Some other places that we go to are Olowalu, Black Rock, South Maui, Makena Landing/ five Graves/ Turtle town, and Mokapu/Ulua Beach.
