Beginner Scuba Course in Maui

Learning to scuba dive and completing your PADI scuba certification course is rated as one of the best Maui activities. So with the PADI Scuba Diver course, you will experience Maui scuba diving lessons without committing too much vacation time. When you become a new PADI Scuba Diver, the certification does require that you always dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Instructor (or Assistant Instructor) to a maximum depth of 40 feet.

Many beginner divers visit Maui to get a PADI scuba diving certification. However, sometimes your vacation doesn’t allow for multiple days of scuba diving lessons. So, the design of this 1-day certification is the best option when your Maui vacation time is limited, or you are looking for an alternative to the multi-day PADI Open Water Diver course. 

The PADI Scuba Diver certification consists of 3 sections:

The first section focuses on learning PADI academics. Before beginning your course, you will need to complete chapters 1, 2, and 3 in the PADI Open Water Diver manual and pass all three quizzes. 
The second section covers confined water skills. Scuba diving in Maui allows you to practice your scuba techniques in a warm and calm ocean environment. You can quickly improve your confidence as a new scuba diver by working with your instructor on the surface and underwater!
Finally, the third section involves two training dives. One of our experienced and professional PADI instructors will take you on two training dives to complete your skill evaluations and see some of the best Maui diving sites.

This Maui scuba certification course is recognized globally and valid for your lifetime. So once completed, you will forever be a member of the scuba diving community! 

What to Expect for Your PADI Scuba Diver Course

Mornings are the best time for excellent visibility underwater, so we like to meet for your course at 8:30 am. At our headquarters (aka our house) in Lahaina, you will review the PADI Scuba Diver academic theory with your instructor and get fitted for your equipment. You will then drive to the dive site to make a total of two dives, finishing up around 4 pm. Would you please let us know if you will not have a rental car? We typically run this course over one day, but if you prefer to certify over two days, please contact us to plan an alternative schedule.
