We urge all of you that decide to scuba dive Maui or snorkel in Maui to be respectful and keep your distance from all sea life. You’ll find that 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 sea life. 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.

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.
