Comments I dove with Maui Dreams after travelling from Seattle for my AOW certification. The instructor, Teri, was well-known by everyone on Maui, and was an EXCELLENT instructor. Fun, patient, knowledgeable, and flexible. She knew the "secret" spots and let divers feel like they were on their own profiles despite diving with small groups.

Let her know if you are willing pay extra to go on nicer dive boats (the shop doesn't own any boats, but boat dives are included with AOW certs). The owner, Rachel, is also very customer oriented, and emails/calls are answered within hours!

Good equipment, and they don't "nickel and dime" you here...you feel like part of their small group of divers looking to have a safe but enjoyable time. Can't wait to dive with them again!
