Comments [None]This was my first dive trip to West Maui. Company was recommended by Pauline at Mike Severns who goes out of Kihei.

Shore dives were Airport Beach and Mala Wharf. Mala was most interesting with turtle cleaning station. One eagle ray, no mantas like I saw in SW Maui. All big fish gone. Octopus, reef fish, invertebrates including nudibranch. Lots of turtles including a ra ... Subscribe to get the full story. For Subscribers Only  Active subscribers continue reading here

I just looked up this Lanai trip and it seems they are charging $375 for a 2 tank? Is that what you paid? Some of the other operators (Lahaina) seem to charge $299 for a 3 tank. Just wondering...I know Hawaii diving is expensive.

Costs: Fuel for 45 each way trip comes from 3000 miles away. Hawaii taxes tourist trips. Not Like Mex or FL re . covid. Covid reduced legal occupancy on boats. I paid over $400 for two tank trip charged as semiprivate. On EH. 6 divers/2 DM. Paid 280 for two tank Lanai with Dive Maui the day before. Aborted. Boat engine failed. High ratios , i think 6:1 not sure how it was legal but boat was open IRB with no head. Got $ back with freebie dive led at boatramp by DM who did not check air of clients and harassed an octopus with metal probe. I would not recommend Dive Maui. Hope this helps.

I suggest shore diving west Maui for the lower cost (around 150 for two tanks/two sites). This is especially true if turtles are your "thing". Mala Wharf has gobs of turtles. Entry/ exit ok, some modest surge or small rocks.
