Maui SNUBA Diving

An often missed alternative to scuba diving is SNUBA diving. Basically, this is where you use the same breathing apparatus as scuba divers, only the tank floats on a small raft at the service and you don't need a BCD, experience or certification. You're able to go deeper than snorkeling will allow most people, and you don't have to come back up for air!

There's limited snuba gear per snorkel trip, so booking your snuba ahead of time is a good idea.

Maui Scuba Diving Video

This Scuba Diving video below was shot all around Maui. None of the sea creatures in this video were disturbed or touched during the making of the Scuba Video.

We urge all those that decide to scuba dive Maui or snorkel in Maui to be respectful and keep your distance. You'll find the less intrusive you are, the more curious the fish and animals will be. Maui Law mandates that visitors keep at least 10 feet away from sea turtles and some other sealife. This doesn't mean that if a turtle comes up to you that you're in the wrong. Treat the ocean and its inhabitants the same way you'd like visitors to treat you in your home. 

Please see our insightful article on Hawaii Shark Attacks about sharks in Maui. Along with interesting information on Maui sharks, you'll find a list of 10 things you can do to protect yourself from a shark attack.

We'd like to thank the group of dive masters that spent their valuable time describing these Maui Scuba Diving Locations to us. Some of the information above was compiled from other researched resources. Ed Robinson Diving Adventures was helpful in obtaining some of the Maui Scuba Information included. Mahalo!
