Mala Wharf Pier Lahaina

This is a beginner to intermediate scuba dive with depths to 35 feet on the outer reaches. An old concrete Pier built in 1922, that partially (1/2) collapsed in 1992 during hurricane Iniki. Good for wreck specialty certification. Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, White Tip Sharks, Frog Fish and tons more. Entrance to the dive is about a 1 minute walk from the large parking lot and the entry is approximately a 5 min shallow wade. You will need booties (provided) to protect your feet from the rocky entrance. Mala Pier is a very popular scuba dive destination for many Maui residents to go diving. You don’t have to pay the extra money to hire a dive boat company to take you, when you can drive to it and walk on down into the water.


There is a shower and rest room just off to the side of the road entering the boat ramp area.
