If you want to explore the ocean’s wonders in style, get on over to the Maui Dive Shop for all you need. They have all the top snorkeling and scuba diving gear for rent by the day or week. Beyond that, you can shop their retail space for apparel, sunblock, and all the other items you might need to have an amazing time along the waterfront. Want to take diving courses or go on guided scuba trips? They can set you up on those adventures as well.
To get started on gearing up for your adventures, you’ll want to swing by their shop set on the corner of Halekuai Street and South Kihei Road. Since they share a building with Pizza Madness Maui, you’ll need to battle through the heavenly scent of pizza deliciousness to make it through the dive shop’s front doors. Once you do, however, their huge selection of apparel, gear, and more will capture your attention in an instant.
Across their shop, they have racks upon racks of all the best brands in the snorkeling and dive world. On top of that, they often roll out the clearance tables with their latest sale items in big buckets to dig through. So, exploring their store usually feels kind of like going on a fun treasure hunt. You just need to watch the clock to avoid eating into your time for ocean explorations.
If you get overwhelmed on your search, you can always look to their crew for help finding what you need. Their staff’s friendly aloha spirit ensures you feel comfortable asking whatever questions come up. And their passion for oceanside explorations helps you get all the right gear the first time around. Although they sell tons of awesome items, you’ll want to rent your gear if you’re only on the island for a short while.
To help you get the right rental gear, their crew will first take the time to learn all about your planned activities. Then, they’ll help you pick out all the items you’ll need on your adventures. Unless you already have a few items of your own, you’ll likely want to go with their scuba or snorkel rental packages. In the scuba package, you get the full gear set up, including enough tanks for your trip. Their snorkel packages come with a silicone mask, snorkel, fins, mesh bag, fish card, no-fog solution, and a guidebook.
For a chance to truly explore Maui in style, ask about their Jeep Wrangler rentals as well. Their rugged vehicles promise to take you wherever you want to go – within the limitations of the rental contract, that is. And their T-top convertible setup lets you enjoy the sunshine to the fullest while traveling all around the island. Want to go straight to your Jeep rental when you land on the island? Ask about their airport shuttle service that’s available for an extra charge.
If you’d like to get scuba lessons or go on guided tours, just let the staff know you’d like to sign up. They’re happy to schedule their PADI courses, intro dives, and diving trips right in the store. On the selected date and time, you’ll need to meet at their dive boat location in Maalaea Harbor. Their crew at that location will pick up where the Kihei team left off in helping you fully enjoy your trip to Maui.
