Our Maui Dive Shop

The Best Scuba Diving in Lahaina

Banyan Tree Divers Maui was founded in 2013 to share the best Lahaina scuba diving experiences with you. Our Maui dive shop executes the perfect way to shore dive by offering maximum convenience during your vacation.

Diving trips with us are best for both non-certified beginners and experienced divers. We meet you at our headquarters in Lahaina, provide a safety briefing, and get you fitted for gear. Then we drive to the dive site. Would you please let us know if you will not have a rental car?

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 dive shop in Lahaina called Banyan Tree Divers Maui? A beautiful banyan tree in downtown Lahaina inspired our company name. Since scuba diving is possible along the entire coast of West Maui, this impressive local tree stuck as our icon. The banyan tree is towering and impressively expansive. You can find it on Front Street, adjacent to the Lahaina harbor.

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, supported by 16 trunks with a height of over 60 feet. This banyan tree creates the shade-filled heart of Lahaina, where local festivals take place, artists sell their goods and people rest. The tree is a reminder for all of us to appreciate Maui’s long history and 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.
