If you are visiting the island of Maui, this is the scuba tour to take! This spectacular 2-Tank boat dive will take you early in the morning from the island of Maui across the channel to the smaller and cliff encircled island of Lanai. You will get the opportunity to explore two pristine and beautiful dive locations along the coastline of Maui. The charter departs from Mala Wharf out of Lahaina early in the morning and traverses the choppy channel waters between Maui & Lanai bringing you to Lanai’s coastline known for its cliffs, swim-throughs, archways, lava structures, and the famous Cathedral Dives. Lanai has over 40 dives sites to choose from with pristine conditions, stunning awe-mazing underwater topography and geology, and that are swimming full of life! Lanai’s lava tubes and Cathedral cliff walls make the topography an amazing underwater dive site and sight.
This Boat Dive tour is a 2-tank dive. You will get the opportunity to do a 1-tank dive at two of Lanai’s 40 dive locations. We often are able dive the first and second Cathedral. The sites we dive at Lanai will depend on the ocean conditions and weather. Most of our dive trips at Lanai are at about a depth of 50′-80′. Non-Scuba certified guests may accompany a certified diver on the boat and snorkel at the various sites. We do keep our Lanai boat tours to a maximum of 11 persons onboard, making these trips and dives very personal and the guide to diver ratio the best! The diving is so beautiful and there is so much to see diving off Lanai’s coast that you may find yourself coming back again. Bring along your log book too, so we can stamp it!
This is a very memorable dive experience with excellent local guides and a company who knows the island, sea life, and dive areas very well. 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. You are in great hands on this dive and our boat dive group sizes are maxed out at 11 with a minimum of 4. Minimum age for divers and tour is 12yrs old. You will need to be scuba certified for this dive. To complete your order we will need to know the names, weights, height, scuba qualification, and if you are requesting any special tanks or air.
