Banyan Tree Divers Maui was founded in 2013 to share the best Lahaina scuba diving experiences with you. Our mobile Maui dive shop has the perfect way to shore dive by offering you maximum convenience during your vacation. We meet you at our headquarters (also known as our house) in Lahaina. After providing a safety briefing and getting you fitted for gear, we drive to the pre-selected dive site. Please let us know if you will not have a rental car. Maui diving trips with us are best for both experienced divers and beginners learning to scuba dive.

TripAdvisor travelers rank us Top 10 for best Maui activities and Top 5 for best Maui dive shops. So whether you are ready to book now or prefer to contact us first, you can trust our team to create your perfect Maui scuba diving vacation. But, why is our mobile dive shop called Banyan Tree Divers Maui?

A beautiful banyan tree inspired the company name in downtown Lahaina. It is the most towering banyan tree in Maui, located next to the Lahaina harbor on Front Street. Since scuba diving is possible along the entire coast of West Maui, it only seemed fitting to have this impressive local tree as our icon. In 1873, standing at just eight feet tall, this future famous banyan tree was imported from India and planted at the Lahaina courthouse square. Nowadays, this spectacular tree shades more than two-thirds of an acre, is supported by 16 trunks and stands over 60 feet high. The banyan tree is the shade-filled heart of Lahaina, where local festivals take place, artists sell their goods, and people come to rest during the day. The banyan tree in Lahaina is a reminder for all of us to enjoy Maui’s stunning terrestrial beauty.

Coral Reef and Fish Conservation Awareness

Maui scuba divers experience first-hand the beautiful coral reefs and marine life beneath the surface. We consider ourselves very privileged to explore this delicate part of Maui and the Earth. To help protect the fragile corals, Banyan Tree Divers Maui incorporates conservation awareness into every dive briefing. We emphasize safe buoyancy control during every scuba dive to best protect Maui coral reefs.

Unfortunately, the ocean is not as healthy as it used to be. Pollution, overfishing, and shark finning are just some of the issues threatening the sea’s stability. Maui continues to face coral reef degradation, enormous habitat losses, and some shark species’ extinction.
