Maui scuba photography by Banyan Tree Divers Maui highlights the abundance of Hawaiian marine life. This underwater photo collection comes from sunny Lahaina’s best scuba diving sites, including Airport Beach and Mala Wharf. Maui allows every scuba diver and snorkeler to see countless turtles, fields of corals, schools of fish, big reef sharks, swimming dolphins, and so much more. So, have you seen these animals scuba diving in Lahaina?
We hope your interest in underwater photography helps to spread awareness for shark protection and ocean conservation in Maui. We invite you to share these unique underwater images to promote a healthy ocean and more safety for Hawaii’s marine life, including endemic species. Each photo and video you see was captured scuba diving in Lahaina.
Maui’s Future Underwater
Maui’s endemic diversity of underwater life makes us passionate about promoting ocean conservation. All ocean-goers in Lahaina can see the vulnerability of near-shore marine life, witnessing firsthand the underwater degradation taking place amidst the innate beauty. If we want to continue scuba diving, surfing reef breaks, and fishing, then we need coral reefs and sharks! There is no magic formula to improve the health of Maui’s ocean ecosystem, but every day we can all play a small part in reducing our minor, individual impacts. Together we can all play a role to improve the most significant and fragile piece of the Earth!
Banyan Tree Divers Maui uses popular social media channels and blog posts to inform you of the immediate issues facing the best Maui diving sites. For example, the reef sharks at Lahaina’s Mala Wharf remain in danger of overfishing, so ultimately we hope to encourage new laws protecting sharks!
We believe the opportunity to scuba dive with sharks facilitates the best way for visitors to Hawaii to find compassion for sharks and learn about marine conservation in Lahaina. Keep up to date with @banyantreedivers on Instagram for current ocean encounter updates.
