September Fun on the Diamond

Date: September 7, 2020 to October 1, 2020
Details:

Yep, these be strange times indeed! That said, we are not letting Covid stop our fun!  We've got all kinds of great dives planned for September and beyond and if you don't see what you're looking for below, just call us.  Also, if you haven't been out on the Maui Diamond with us this summer, please watch this video so you're up to date on all the latest.

We ARE also doing periodic Molokini Charters (oh, the wonder of having the crater all to ourselves - it is magical!) several times a month as well.  Full disclosure:  we are not currently going out every day at this time; we simply do not have enough customers.

September 9th:  Mala Pier & the 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. Click here for a little history on the Carths 1 and 2!  The first dive of the day will be everyone's favorite, Mala Pier!

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

September 15th:  Helldiver and Triple Anchors 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.

September 15th: Dusk and Night Dives 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! 

September 20:  Double Backwall 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.

September 26:  Lanai! - We'll likely dive one of the Cathedrals sites, accompanied by a second dive off Lanai - there is SO much to explore over there. This is a longer day than usual, so bring your snacks!

Other than what's listed above, the Maui Diamond will be doing our regular daily charters to Molokini Crater.  We are often one of only 2-3 boats there - this is unreal!!  If you've got a special request or a combination of dives you'd like to do, hit us up and we'll make it happen.

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. Right now, we are maxing at 14 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 for details and a quote.
