Advanced Scuba Diving in Maui

Scuba diving in Maui gets addictive after completing your PADI Open Water Diver certification because you may want to dive deeper or scooter dive! Enter the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course. This scuba certification course in Lahaina will increase your confidence and knowledge as a diver while introducing you to new adventure dives. You get to choose from a long list of electives, highlighted by:

  • Deep Diver
  • Underwater Navigator
  • Scooter Diver
  • Underwater Photography
  • Wreck Diver
  • Peak Performance Buoyancy
  • Night Diver

Complete your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course with us in two to three days. This scuba certification course includes five dives. Two dives are compulsory, Deep and Navigation, giving you the option to select three dives. We recommend you go for Peak Performance Buoyancy, Scooter Diving, and Underwater Photography!

You get trained as a Deep Diver to confidently join experienced divers at some of the best Maui diving sites. Your Advanced Diver certification safely increases your maximum depth limit to 100 feet, where you still find coral reefs in Hawaii. Our favorite spots to deep dive are Airport Beach and unique sites along Lahaina and Kaanapali’s coastline. If you also want to wreck dive, we like to visit Mala Wharf in Lahaina. We can scooter dive with ScubaJets at nearly any Maui dive site accessible from the beach.

Advanced Divers may use any completed Adventure Dives as credit towards a PADI Specialty certification. Contact us for additional details regarding Specialty courses. As you build upon your scuba diving experiences, you may ultimately achieve the most notable recreational diving certification of all: PADI Master Scuba Diver.

What to Expect for your Advanced Course

Mornings provide the best visibility underwater, so we meet our guests at 9 am at the pre-selected dive location. The preferred dive location is based on conditions to provide you with the best PADI Advanced Open Water Diver experience. We’ll email you with all of the information, but most often, our meeting time is 9 am to take advantage of the best underwater visibility. We like to make two dives per day, so most often, you’ll finish up at around 3 to 4 pm.

Our mobile dive shop in Lahaina offers you maximum convenience scuba diving with us. We meet you with our scuba van at the beach, gear up, and walk into the ocean. Our white scuba van is easy to spot, so you cannot miss us!
