But why is our dive service called Banyan Tree Divers Maui? Since scuba diving is possible along the entire coast of West Maui, a beautiful banyan tree in downtown Lahaina inspired our company name. This impressive local tree literally stuck out as our icon. The banyan tree towers above Front Street, adjacent to the Lahaina harbor, in an impressively expansive fashion. In 1873, standing at just eight feet tall, this future famous banyan tree got imported from India and subsequently planted at the Lahaina courthouse square. Nowadays, the spectacular tree shades more than two-thirds of an acre, supported by 16 trunks with a height of over 60 feet. It’s the shade-filled heart of Lahaina, where celebrations take place and local artists sell their goods. The tree is a reminder for all of us to appreciate Maui’s long history and connect with the island’s terrestrial beauty.

Coral Reef and Fish Conservation Awareness

Maui scuba divers get to experience the beautiful coral reefs and marine life found beneath the ocean’s surface. We consider ourselves very privileged to explore this delicate part of Maui and the Earth. So to help protect the fragile corals your scuba instructor incorporates conservation awareness into every dive briefing with an emphasis on safe buoyancy control techniques to best protect Maui’s 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 facing coral reef degradation, enormous habitat losses, and the extinction of some shark species.
