Whether you are coming to Maui to shop for Hawaii real estate, escape the winter weather or just kick back on the beach and sleep, you should also consider blowing some bubbles underwater at one of our many world class dive sites!
Here is a short list of some of the best sites. By the way, some of these sites are easily accesible from the beach while others require signing up for a one or two tank boat dive with a local shop. Maui Dive and Surf can help you with thee excursions and can even rent you all the equipment you need for a do it yourself shore dive. Also keep in mind that many of the shore dives can also be very good for snorkeling with the kids when you are not in dive mode.
Honolua Bay - You can dive this site up to 35 feet and is best in the summer due to low swells. This is a moderately difficult shore dive due to some rocks you must negotiate on your way in, and the hike down to the beach and back is moderate exertion as well. But the work is worth it. This is a protected bay and the reef is loaded with sea creatures..both big and small.
D. T. Fleming Beach - A great dive site up to 30 feet for beginners and intermediate divers. The beach entry is super easy and the distance from the parking lot is short as well. The best diving and snorkeling are north east of the beach with hole, arches in the lava rock. Cool freshwater springs dot the area as well.
Kapalua Beach and Bay - this dive site can get you down as far as 45 feet with an easy beach entry form one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. (Voted Best Beach in the world by Sunset Magazine) How cool is that? Best diving is on the reef northeast of the beach. Be cautious of offshore currents which can be very strong especially in the winter months when swells are rolling in the north and northeast.
Kahekili Beach - also known as old airport beach and is a shallow dive site up to 20 feet great for beginners. This area offers a huge reef and is great for snorkeling as well. Facilities are available at the beach.
