You may have tried them all: cycling, mountain climbing, canoeing, hunting, skydiving. But have you tried scuba diving? We are both intrigued, terrified and attracted to be the idea of diving into the ocean’s abyss, yet few experiences could ever compare with this one. We, Banyan Tree Divers Scuba, are in the business of making people’s heart race wild while providing a secure environment to experience one of the most compelling and amazing ecosystems in the world.
Diving in Maui, Hawaii cannot be described in sheer words, just as you can’t describe the blood-curdling, yet the narcotic experience of skydiving. We, humans, are not adapted to flying, just as we are not suited to living underwater. This is why scuba diving appears, in a sense, similar to visiting another planet.
What you get here is an entirely different ecosystem, one which most people will never get the chance of experiencing. We are talking about over 220,000 different species of marine life, with countless others still undiscovered, and more than 3 million shipwrecks, which have evolved into immense artificial habitats, hosting millions of lifeforms of all sizes, colors, and shapes.
What you should expect
The act of diving into the blue, crystal-clear waters of the Pacific can be a mind-blowing experience in and of itself. When we throw in the incredible diversity of the wildlife on top of that, what you will be getting can’t be explained; it must be lived through. Diving in Maui, Hawaii will expose you to the entire splendor of the marine life, and that’s a sight you can’t miss.
Some of the most exotic specimens you will have the opportunity of seeing include:
- The tiger sharks – This species is highly prevalent among divers and can be found somewhat close to the coasts of Hawaii, either hunting or relaxing in the calm, blue waters. Whether you’ve seen Jaws and want to exorcise a pathological fear, or you’re just looking for a thrill you’ve never had, this is your opportunity.
- The fluorescent octopus – If we hold any subconscious fear of octopuses, then it is Jules Verne’s fault, along with his Vingt Mille Lieues Sous Les Mers (Twenty Thousand Miles Under the Sea). This colorful creature is nothing but amazing; an exotic specimen whose magic can be better captured with the help of fluorescent photography.
- The coral reef – Many people don’t even know that the coral is a living being and not a sedimentary deposit. Corals usually live in colonies, with the largest one being on the shores of Australia, stretching over 1,400 miles in length and 133,000 miles in radius. The Hawaiian coral reef is nothing short of amazing itself, with a spread of 1,200 miles, making for 85% of the American coral reefs.
