Dive Service Policies

Cancellation Policy

Our Maui dive service operates a 48-hour cancellation policy. You receive a full refund when you cancel before this timeframe, but any cancellation made after 48 hours is not eligible for any refund.

PADI Course Refunds

Scuba diving students learning to dive must pay in full before beginning any PADI course. Once you begin, we cannot issue any refunds if you cannot complete the course requirements. However, in the event of illness or injury, don’t hesitate to contact us for options to delay or possibly reschedule your reservation. Your instructor can provide you with a PADI referral form if you cannot complete your course.

Price Guarantee

We reserve the right to change our prices. However, we guarantee that your quoted price will be locked in and not altered once you have booked and made a payment.

Swimming Requirements

You should feel comfortable and confident swimming in the ocean before signing up for the Beginner Dive, aka Introductory Dive or Discover Scuba Dive. However, swimming proficiency assessments are compulsory for anyone beginning a PADI course, such as Scuba DiverOpen Water Diver, and Open Water Referral Dives. PADI course participants need to complete a 10-minute float in the ocean, plus a 200-meter swim or 300-meter snorkel. Don’t worry, your swim and snorkel tests have no time limitations!

Proof of Certification

Beginners do not need to have a scuba certification to dive! Only certified divers are required to provide a diving certification. If you are certified, then your instructor needs to check your certification card and logbook before exploring Maui’s dive sites. If you have misplaced your cert card or logbook, please get in touch with us in advance to see if we can help.
