Maui scuba diving is simply exceptional.
Coral reefs have grown atop formations of lava here for the last several hundred years, and the reefs are full of life. Much of this marine life can only be found in the Hawaiian Islands. We offer some fascinating Maui scuba diving tours of Molokini Crater, Lanai, and other great sites!
Dive Molokini early in the morning, when the sea is calm and the other tours haven’t gotten their feet wet. Ride a 42 foot catamaran that’s been specially outfitted for divers. There are many places on and around Molokini to explore. Where you will go depends on ocean conditions and your skill level.
Reef’s End is the perfect spot for both new and seasoned divers. Look for whitetip reef sharks, garden eels, and spotted eagle rays. The expansive back side of the crater caters to those who can handle advanced Maui scuba diving. It is common to see nudibranchs, black coral, and large groups of squirrelfish in this impressive reef. The very lucky visitor may encounter larger animals such as manta rays, whale sharks, and humpback whales!
After your Molokini dive, you will descend again into another outstanding reef for more Maui scuba diving. This second location will be one of several off the Southern coast of the island.
Some incomparable dive sites exist just beneath the waves off Lanai. You will love taking time to visit these areas. Zip across the channel in a rigid hull inflatable boat that has special storage space for tanks and gear. If it is whale season, you will see some of the massive mammals on your ride between islands. Whale season in Maui takes place from December through April.
Once you’re close to the island, the captain will decide what sites will be best based on the weather of the day. Some of the more popular locations are Cathedrals, Eagle Ray Bay, and Shark Fin Rock. Look for eels, barracuda, and chevron butterflyfish! Each of these dive sites is dazzling in its own way, and you are sure to be astonished by something amazing underwater.
Molokini and Lanai are busy with living reefs for you to discover! As you plan your Maui scuba diving trips, let us know if you have any questions.

Dive Lanai to encounter much larger concentrations of reef fish than are usually seen on Maui. Let Extended Horizons motor you across the channel on their 36′ dive boat, for a two tank/two dive morning. Once you’re below the surface, you’ll follow your experienced scuba guide through the caves, around the pinnacles, and under the beautiful arches of Lanai!
Hawaiian Rafting Adventures supplies everything you need, from split fins to regulators. A deli lunch with sandwich, salad, chips, cookies, and sodas is included. And if you don't dive, you can still go just for the fun!
