Maui Scuba Diving Under Darkness
Scuba diving under darkness is one of the best ocean experiences in Maui. You meet your guide at sunset in Lahaina and walk into the ocean during the final minutes of twilight, searching for turtles, sharks, and eels. Book through Banyan Tree Divers to learn why even seasoned scuba divers in Hawaii are fascinated by the exquisite array of nocturnal life in Maui.
Please note that night diving requires you to have a scuba certification and your diving history should show that you logged a dive in the last six months to one year. Beginner divers can instead start with introductory lessons or a PADI course to learn how to scuba dive.
Mala Wharf in Lahaina ranks as a favorite spot to night dive. If you have ever experienced the thrill of Mala Wharf on a sunny day, then you will find this site changes into a whole new playground under Maui’s darkness. You can see invertebrates like octopus, lobster, and crab shuffle past coral polyps filtering plankton in the light of your dive torch. Mala Wharf has wonderfully eerie caverns hosting brightly colored soft corals and resting schools of fish. Resident sea turtles sleep under the broken pier, as large Conger Eels scour the corals and ocean floor for a much-anticipated evening meal. Sometimes White Tip Reef Sharks make an appearance too!
What to Expect for Your Night Dive
Our scuba service sets you up with an instructor who meets you at our headquarters (also known as our house) about an hour before sunset to provide a safety briefing. Your pre-rented gear and dive light get included and will be ready for you. As darkness sets in you drive to the instructor’s pre-selected dive site to complete your night adventure in Lahaina.
