April Happenings on the Maui Diamond II

Date: April 1, 2019 to April 30, 2019

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 April.

Remember, if you're coming to Maui and there's a site you want to dive, 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)!

Maui Diamond II crew


CARTHAGINIAN: April 11  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. Click here for a little history on the Carths 1 and 2!

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

Our first dive of the day will be everyone's favorite:  Mala Pier!

DRIFT DIVE DAYS: April 7, 14, 28  On these three Sundays, 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! This is typically the day of the week that we DON'T go to Molokini Crater.

FREEDIVER CLINIC: April 13 Join our freedive instructors, Javier and Curly, on the Maui Diamond II to hone your breath-hold and freedive skills.  A freediving certification is not necessary to join us for this great day on the water, but we do offer classes as well! Cost is $109 and we'll visit two sites.

UNDERWATER CLEAN-UP: April 13 We've noticed a build up of debris at a couple of our favorite dive sites, so it's time to show the reef some love!  If you want to help, you can join us for a 1 tank clean-up dive at 1:00 for this charter.  If you're interested, click HERE for complete details, and then call us to reserve your spot!

DUSK AND NIGHT DIVES:  April 18 At dusk, the day time critters start trading places with the night time critters, so it can be a fascinating time to be in the water.  After that, we go down again to see what's happening after dark.  Join us for these two dives along the Pali! Check in is at 4:PM and we get back between 8:00 and 9:00.  If this date doesn't work for you, please call the shop to book your night dive from shore - we do those much more frequently. Or round up a few friends and call us; maybe we can add a night dive for your group!

HELLDIVER & TRIPLE ANCHORS:  April 18 - 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! And if you're looking for a 4 tank dive day, you may also join us for tonight's dusk and night dives!

BACKWALL:  April 21 & 30 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. We only do this dive once or twice a month and require that participants have recent dive experience and a minimum of 40 logged dives, including recent dive experience. Why?  Because we want YOU to have the best possible time!

Tips: 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. If you are nitrox certified, you will also benefit from using nitrox for today's dive profiles. 

PRIVATE CHARTERS:  We offer private charters any time YOU want them and WE have availability. We can do morning, afternoon, sunset, whatever you have in mind.  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.
