On May 25th, our beloved Maui Diamond II retired and on the 26th, our new 46 foot Newton Dive Special, the Maui Diamond, ran her first charter...and it was AWESOME!
What does that mean for you? A brand new, spacious, shiny, FAST new dive boat. We are so excited to share her with you. So whether you are just looking for a Molokini Crater dive, or for one of the charters we only offer a couple times a month, you're in for a treat!
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)!
CARTHAGINIAN: June 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 SUNDAYS: June 2, 16, 23, & 30 On these four 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.
HELLDIVER & TRIPLE ANCHORS: June 20 - 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!
DUSK AND NIGHT DIVES: June 20 At dusk, the daytime 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 4:30PM 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!
BACKWALL: June 6, 18, 29 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 2-3 times 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.
AFTERNOON CHARTERS: We are happy to do these when we have at least seven passengers. Check in for these charters is at 1:PM and IF we can go to Molokini, we will. If winds dictate otherwise (which is commonly the case in the afternoons), we will head around the corner to a couple of sheltered spots along the Pali and dive there.
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.
Update: Bigger boat means that you can invite more of your friends! For more than 18 passengers, please contact us for a quote.
