Maui is home to some great diving locations with many accessible right from the beach! Amazing coral reefs surround Maui and are home to a diversity of sea creatures. The coral reefs are thriving with sea life around Maui and make diving easy with immediate shore access. You won't just be seeing sand on this dive. We frequently see turtles and spotted eagle rays pass by. You are also likely to see several types of tropical fish, eels, octopus, crabs, shrimp and more. No matter if you are certified or a beginner, you can join us for a shore dive. We keep our guide to diver ratio very low and these dives are very relaxing. The max depth for our shore dives will be between 30'-40'.
This is a great option for small groups or mixed groups of certified and beginner divers. Guides are CORA/Maui county permitted guides. Whether you are certified diver or a beginner/introductory diver you have the option of doing a 1-Tank or 2-Tank shore dive. Shore Dive site options include Black Rock, Honolua, Airport Beach, Kapalua Bay, Mala Pier, and Canoe Beach. You can make a dive site request in the comment box, but the dive site choice will be dependent on conditions. We are a very environmentally conscious and friendly company we know much about the behaviour of the animals here and we try to keep their home clean. We are one of just a few companies that operate 100% on locally sourced Biodiesel which reduced our carbon footprint by 83%. We also offer trash clean up dives and have installed several moorings on Lanai to protect the reefs from anchors damaging them.
All scuba gear is included in our Shore dives. All shore dives check in at the Extended Horizons Shop and your guide will get you set up, after which you can follow your guide to the location. Shore Dives are available daily all year. Shore Dives have several time slots available different times throughout the day starting in the early morning.
