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 December.
December 2: Tank and Landing Craft and Helldiver - This is a special request, small wreck dive combo we haven't done all year! Both dives will be square profiles at about 60 feet deep, so if you are nitrox certified, be sure to order some up to increase your bottom time!
December 3 & 31: 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! If you've got a special request, let us hear it - we're game!
December 10: 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).
DUSK AND NIGHT DIVES: December 14
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!
December 17: 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.
December 24: Looks like we've had a special request to dive the Helldiver and Triple Anchors on the day before Christmas and that means you'll be back to the harbor before noon to settle in for whatever other holiday festivities you have in mind.
December 25: We are usually closed on Christmas and New Year's Days, but with a little extra motivation, our services can be bought. Private charters are available on these days at $2500 each. Please call us if you are interested.
PRIVATE CHARTERS: These trips are very popular this time of year and are available most afternoons. Aside from that, at the time of this posting, private AM charters were still available on the 19th and 20th. This is a great way to enjoy some quality time with your friends and family and to have the boat all to yourself. We can accommodate up to 18 passengers, so if you want to snag one of these charters, it's best to skip the emailing and CALL us at 808-874-5332. Private Charters are $1800 in the mornings and $1700 in the afternoons.
