Most Popular Scuba Course
Our most popular scuba certification course in Maui is for non-certified divers who have already completed their dive theory and confined water skills. There are two ways to fulfill your academic portion of the PADI Open Water Referral Dives course. You can either get an Open Water manual to learn your academics with a PADI instructor or sign up online for PADI’s eLearning. The cost for eLearning is paid directly to PADI as an additional fee, but it allows you to complete your quizzes and final exam before arriving in Maui.
Please note, to start this course, we require the submission of your PADI referral documentation. Get the form signed by your previous instructor and email it to us. If you have not completed the academic and confined water training sessions but want to get your scuba certification in Maui with us, check out PADI Open Water Diver.
This PADI referral course comprises four open water dives. Then you can dive with a buddy, independently of a professional, to a maximum depth of 60 feet. During your course, you make two dives each day at some of the best Maui diving sites and record each training dive’s details in your new logbook. Maui scuba diving conditions are excellent to earn your PADI certification. Shore diving in Lahaina with us allows for easy entry into the ocean and the opportunity to see magnificent marine life, including fields of coral reefs, schools of fish, and turtle cleaning stations.
Your new PADI Open Water Diver certification will be internationally recognized and valid for life. So get excited to become a certified diver in Maui! When you are ready to dive deeper, the next step is PADI Advanced Open Water Diver.
What to Expect for Your Referral Dives
Mornings are the best time for clear visibility underwater, so we begin our PADI Open Water Referral Dives course at 9 am. Each day you will review scuba diving concepts and go for two training dives. You should finish both days at 3 pm.
To guarantee you the best Maui scuba diving experience, we observe conditions and choose the dive site the day before you begin. So, the day before you start, look for an updated email before 4 pm with GPS directions to the dive site.
Our mobile dive company setup offers you maximum convenience during your course. We meet you with our scuba van at a pre-arranged Lahaina beach, gear up, and walk into the ocean. After your first two dives, we will decide on the sites for your second day, so you know where to meet us. Please make your reservation online today to begin your Maui diving adventure with us!
