ScubaDivingVacation.netDiving Resorts& Hotels In Maui, Hawaii

As the second largest island in the Hawaiian chain, Maui has it all - great weather, unique cultural experiences and a diverse landscape shaped by past geological events that have helped shape the beaches, bays, reefs and cliffs. These features make for many great things on Maui, but while scuba diving travelers can truly see the effects these past events had on the land! While these geological characteristics are stunning both on land and beneath the water, one can expect to see many other things while diving anywhere off Maui. Sea turtles, sharks, dolphins, many species of tropical fish, reefs, caverns, coral and spectacular pillars that often break the surface are just a few of the things visitors experience below the surface. Divers also marvel at how complex and balanced the eco-system surrounding the waters in Maui is and even the boat rides to the dive sites are an experience with spectacular scenery and surface marine life like whales and dolphins often making appearances to the delight of guests.

Maui is home to many spectacular, excellent diving sites. On the northwest shore, there is Black Rock, Cemetery, Olowalu, Coral Gardens, Lookout and McGregor Point. The north shore hosts Hidden Pinnacle, Maliko Bay, Baldwin Beach and Napili Bay. Dragon Reef, Haloa Point, Big Beach, Markena Beach, Seven Pools, Hana Bay and La Perouse Bay are all located on the south shore. The east shore has Ke'anae Peninsula, Nahiku and Wai'anapanapa. Other notable dive sites are located at Molokini Crater and Kaho'olawe. Many companies offer guided tours to these popular diving sites. Hawaiian Rafting Adventures offers fully equipped dives to Lanai. Lahaina Divers offers charters to dive sites such as Molokini, Lanai and the Carthaginian Wreck and offers scuba lessons to beginners. Ed Robinson's Diving Adventures takes divers to various dive areas where on recent dives, sharks and monk seals have been spotted. Molokini Dive Charters offers dive certifications for beginners and charter dives to the best sites in Maui including Molokini Crater. Makena Coast Charters travels to many popular sites where divers see turtles, shipwrecks and many other surprises.

Underwater enthusiasts who want to see what lurks beneath the water's surface, but prefer to do so in a safer and drier environment, have at disposal on Maui another vacation activity that is popular with tourists, particularly families with younger children. Submarine Dives in Maui are provided by world-known company Atlantis Submarines. The subs are state-of-the-art, technologically advanced and carry up to forty-eight passengers to depths of one-hundred feet or more. Every dive is different but guests are guaranteed to see something extraordinary on every dive. There is also an artificial reef that was created by sinking an aged replica of a 19th century supply vessel. The ship is anchored at the bottom in hopes of developing a habitat for fish, coral and other sea life. It seems to be working because many species of marine life are seen in and around the wreck.

When seeking a place to spend the night, visitors are thrilled to discover that most hotels and resorts on Maui are located a short distance away from dive sites. Wailea Beach Marriott Resort and Spa, Aston Maui Lu, Grand Wailea and Fairmount Kea Lani are near shore diving, snorkeling and deeper sea dive sites. The Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa offers snorkeling and scuba diving lessons and excursions on-site, and is also in close proximity to other more popular dive sites of Maui. The Sheraton Maui is also close to popular diving sites such as the coveted Black Rock where tourists can swim with turtles and enjoy many other water sports and vacation activities.
