Frequently Asked Questions

Where is your shop?

We were the first dive boat operation in Kihei 33 years ago, but we have never had a shop. We take reservations by internet or phone and meet at the Kihei Boat Ramp at 6:00 AM in the morning.

How do you decide where the dives will be each day?

Typically the first dive is someplace at Molokini Crater and the second dive is someplace off of the island of Maui. We decide the exact sites on those islands based on the sea conditions and the requests of the divers on that day. We also take into account where our repeating divers have been and where we have been seeing cool animals that week.

If I dive with you several days will we go to different spots?

Yes, that is one of the reasons that we choose our dives in the morning.

How long are the dives?

This depends on your air consumption and/or on the dive profile. Some people might be down 25 minutes and some over an hour.

If one person gets low on air does the whole group have to go up?

No.

Do you use computers?

There are computers on all of our regulators.

What should we bring on the dive?

Your certification card, any gear you have, sunscreen, your voucher or form of payment (a VISA or Mastercard or cash).

If I dive consecutive days can I leave my gear on the boat?

Yes.

How long should I wait to go up to Haleakala after diving?

24 hours.

Is there food on the boat?

Yes. We have decaf and regular coffee, hot chocolate (in the "winter"), just-out-of-the-oven macadamia nut cinnamon rolls and cookies, fresh fruit, juices, water, soda and salty snacks.

Is there a dry area on the boat?

Yes.

Is there a bathroom on the boat?
