We've got a couple of VERY special offerings this month, including a sunset whale watch/ 1 tank night dive combo - the best of both worlds! We are also offering another Dive Agains Debris Underwater Clean-Up day on the 20th. This is an opportunity to do some good for the ocean, learn some new skills, and earn an additional certification at no extra charge!
Also, have you met the beautiful, shiny, NEW Maui Diamond yet?
She's our brand new, spacious, shiny, FAST new dive boat that started touring Maui's waters last May. 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)!
DRIFT DIVE: February 2 On this Sunday, 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.
CARTHAGINIAN: February 29 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 likely be be a local favorite: Mala Pier!
HELLDIVER & TRIPLE ANCHORS: February 15 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! If you're curious about what the Helldiver is, you can click here to read a past blog post about it.
LANAI: February 8 & 23 Yes, you read that right, the Maui Diamond is offering 2 tank Lanai trips now, so you can join us for some additional dive sites, including the Cathedrals! Sorry divers, at this point in time, we are not bringing snorkelers along on this charter. Passengers are welcome, but this is a longer day than usual with a return time of between 2-3pm
DOUBLE BACKWALL: February 9 & 22 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. 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.
SUNSET WHALE WATCHES: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays With a check-in time of 4:PM, we'll be out on the water for about two and a half hours watching whales do what they do, whether it's mamas teaching their babies to breach or competition pods fighting over a girl! Our boat is roomy and rated for 49 passengers, but we max out our whale watches at only 25 passengers (unless you want a private charter), making sure you've always got a good view and no one's head in front of your perfect whale photo! We'll head back to the harbor just after sunset.
SUNSET WHALE WATCH AND 1 TANK NIGHT DIVE: February 27 Yes, you CAN have it all! With at 4PM check in, we'll do a couple hours of whale watching until the sun goes down! After that, we'll go down again to see what's happening after dark. Join us for this great combo trip - a twofer!
PRIVATE AFTERNOON CHARTERS: Available upon request - 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. For Molokini charters, we can take up to 22 passengers and if Molokini is not on your "required" list, we can take several more, depending on which activities we're doing. So if you want to snag one of these charters, it's best to skip the emailing and CALL us at 808-874-5332 for details and a quote.
