Airport Beach / Kahekili Beach Park Maui
Airport Beach is located next to the Westin Kaanapali Resort Villas.
Airport Beach is a beginner to intermediate scuba dive. With depths of 25 feet to 47 feet on the outer reef. Visibility ranges 40-150 feet. Lots of Intro Scuba dive classes are done here for the Maui beginner diver program, due to the easy access and shallow water. Entry is a 2 minute walk through a grassy picnic area from the parking lot. The reef starts 25 feet from the shore in 8 feet of water. Perfect for Intro scuba diver classes. This dive site displays a colorful reef, Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles and rare Hawks Bill Turtles on occasion. Snorkeling starts 25 feet off the beach.
Airport Beach in Maui is great for everyone
Only 5 minutes south of Honokowai & Kahana and 10 minutes north of Lahaina. Maui Scuba Certifications are done here with dive shops in Lahaina, Kaanapali. We use Airport Beach's sandy area between the reef we call the classroom. Located on the north side of Black Rock on Kaanapali beach, along a long sandy coastline north of Black Rock. Currents can run along the shore from north or south but not too strong. There is a shower, restrooms, BBQ stands and a pavilion for picnics & gatherings. Snorkelers in your group can watch you as you are scuba diving.
Call us if your planning your own dive and would like some insight on the layout and dive planning. We would love to help.
