Maui Dreams Dive Co.
This enthusiastic PADI five-star shop offers shore dives along South Maui, as well as descents off boats. Don’t miss the island’s classics like Cathedrals II off Lānaʻi—a lava cavern with numerous archways and swim throughs. Watch for long fronds of black coral, as well as frogfish, harlequin shrimp, and massive schools of bluestripe snapper. Other standouts include the Carthaginian, a 2005 shipwreck rigged to resemble an old whaling boat, and Molokini Crater
with its sheltered interior reefs—teeming with endemic banded angelfish—and a stunning 300-foot submarine wall on the backside, known for charismatic pelagic animals like mantas and humpbacks. Want to give back to the island and help preserve its beauty for future generations? Ask Maui Dreams if you can join one of its Project Aware clean-ups
