Overview

If you’ve always wanted to breathe underwater — but never had the courage to try it — this introductory scuba lesson in Maui is the perfect place to get started. Under the watchful eye of a professional instructor and in calm, protected waters, you’ll learn the basic skills required for scuba diving in Maui. The lesson has a maximum of only four divers and, once you’ve learned the safety basics, you’ll casually kick around the reef in search of tropical marine life. When planning your trip, know that flying within 18 hours of scuba is unsafe and therefore not permitted.
  • 3-hour introductory scuba diving lesson on Maui
  • Learn the basics on shore before entering the water
  • Dive in shallow water just off Maui's coastline
  • Spot green sea turtles and other marine life on the coral reef
  • Enjoy one-on-one attention from a certified dive instructor in a small group of four
  • Perfect for first-timers or those wanting a refresher!

This activity will end right where it started.
For this introductory shore dive on Maui, divers are required to be physically fit and in good physical health. You’ll be required to fill out a medical waiver (which you can find on the View additional info' button towards the bottom of the page), and then submit it before arrival to the dive operator in Maui. If you wish to take part in the scuba dive, you must be able to answer 'no' to all of the questions on the waiver. If there are any answers where you need to mark 'yes,' you’ll need a doctor’s note to dive.

Your introductory Maui scuba dive begins at the dive shop in Lahaina, where you’ll receive a 45-minute class on basic skills and safety. You’ll learn the proper way to don your mask and how to breathe through a regulator, as well as how to control your buoyancy and safely swim underwater.

From there, you’ll journey out to a nearby beach to comfortably wade in the water, where your professional instructor will be right by your side to talk you through all the steps. While the dive site can change due to ocean conditions, popular spots for this intro dive include Black Rock, Canoe Beach, and Kapalua Bay. At each of these spots, even though the depth will never exceed a maximum of 35 feet (10.7 meters), there’s still a wealth of a colorful marine life and the chance to go diving with turtles. 

Once you’re comfortably blowing bubbles underwater, follow your guide on a tour of the reef at the speed and pace that you choose, stopping to practice any techniques or skills where you feel you need work. Since the group is kept small there’s minimal pressure, and the entire dive is specifically catered around your safety, enjoyment and comfort. 

At the end of the dive, if you decide you’d like to continue with scuba and work towards your certification, not only will this Maui introductory scuba dive count towards your certification, but you’ll also be registered with PADI at no additional cost.

Bruce from Extended Horizons Scuba is fantastic. He is knowledgeable and patient with me and my 12 year old. The shop has a great set up and is a much better place to receive important scuba diving safety information. (vs. we saw many standing by the parking lot to try to figure it out via other operators). The experience was fantastic and I will highly recommend Extended Horizons. We will definitely do a repeat.

Chris was an outstanding guide and extremely knowledgeable above and below the water. We asked him several times what species of fish we were looking at, every time he told us what they were AND another fun fact about then. I cannot recommend Chris and this experience enough. 10/10 Will be coming again.

My husband and I decided to try Scuba for the first time with Extended Horizons Scuba. Chris, our instructor, was incredible! He helped us feel 100% comfortable, empowered, and confident. Chris was not only friendly but his passion for scuba and the animals / reef was contagious! We will definitely be back and can’t wait to get certified!

Scuba diving has been on our bucket list for years. Despite not having any prior experience, our instructor Bruce made us feel informed and safe. We saw many different types of fish and eel. We’re so happy to have had the chance to do this on vacation and are inspired to pursue our open water certification!

This is great for the first time doing scuba diving. Bruce was knowledgeable and so patient. He made sure we were comfortable and ok at each step. My two boys went with Bruce to see turtle and listen to whale sounds. My family had a great time with Bruce. He is an excellent instructor, not only professional, also very caring and supportive. He wants all of us to learn and having a fun time !!!

This i the first time ever of scuba diving. Our instructor Shelby was very patient and knowledgeable. Although we felt like naughty kindergartners, she had amazing patients. To enjoy the experience, I would definitely recommend the ocean not being your first experience I consider myself to be pretty fearless, but the ocean is a different beast! Other than that, it was an excellent time! and the instructions were flawless!! If you do want to go, you cannot beat this team!!

Great for beginners and as a refresher if you haven't been diving in a long time.

I am a certified diver but I took this dive trip as a refresher course. Couldn't have been better. The instructors were professional and friendly. The dive site was Kahekili State Park. Lots of life, plenty to explore, with convenient snd easy access for a beach dive.

Great for first timers..

Lots to learn, can be a lot to absorb on the experience, but it was amazing to be breathing on the ocean floor and looking at the coral and fishes. Truly amazing intro experience to scuba.
