SPECIAL BOAT DIVES ON THE MAUI DIAMOND II

Date: September 5, 2017 to September 30, 2017
Details:

There are lots of great dives out there, and Molokini is the one we do most often, and with good reason!  

That said, we know there are those divers out there yearning to get on a boat dive and get out do different sites, so here's what we've got on the calendar for the month of September.

Remember, if you're coming to Maui and there's something you want to do, just ask us in advance and if we can get it on the schedule for you, we will (that's how most of this stuff gets on the calendar in the first place)!

September 14:  BACKWALL & Second Site - Advanced Divers Only

September 23:  DOUBLE BACKWALL - Advanced Divers Only

Molokini’s Backwall is simply that, the back wall of the crater…but it is an entirely different world from the inside! This site rises from a 310 foot bottom and the underwater topography includes ledges, crevices, rubbly slopes and just sheer wall. Like the inside of the crater, the Backwall consists of several sites and starting and ending points and is most often experienced
as a drift dive. 

Tip: Since the angle of this crater often puts divers in the shade or at deeper depths, a dive light is essential on this trip. And since there is no bottom, excellent buoyancy skills are a must; book this dive after you have had a refresher or done some other diving in Maui. 

DUSK AND NIGHT DIVES:  September 7 & 21

It's not easy to find anyone who does night dives from a boat anymore, so we decided to jump right in and offer some sites to give you some variety from shore diving.  Though we probably will NOT go to Molokini, we will find some cool critters along the pali - you should join us!

EVERY SUNDAY: Drift Days.  We may do drift dives or we may just start in one location and end in another - we don't need current to drift!j  If you've got a special request, let us hear it - we're game!

September 9 & 26:  Carthaginian  The Carthaginian II was a floating museum located in Lahaina harbor…it is NOW a dive site located just outside of Lahaina in about 100 feet of water.

Sunk in 2005 by Atlantis Submarines, this artificial reef is starting to showsome growth and has attracted a variety of fish. In 2011, the mainmast of this 96 foot long steel hulled ship finally collapsed, and thevessel continues to become part of the ocean environment.

Though the engine room is locked off, there are parts of the ship
that are accessible to divers and many crustaceans have made homes in the ship’s hold. Divers will typically experience mild to moderate currents here and need to be aware of their depth and position throughout the dive. For many, the highlight of this dive is getting to see the Atlantis Submarine cruise by. Divers become as much a part of the show for submarine passengers as they do for us; flashbulbs can be seen going off from inside as well as outside the submarine!

Are you nitrox certified?  If so, you may want to request at least one tank for this charter ($12 extra).
