Where is the Best Scuba Diving in Lahaina?
This is where you can find one of the best rated dive sites in Maui. Mala Wharf is a concrete pier that collapsed in hurricane Iniki back in 1992. It is a maze of pillars and platforms to navigate through like a Giant Pick Up Sticks jungle gym for divers. Many certified divers report this dive site as being the best they have ever done. When the White Tip Reef Sharks are there, it is always an exciting dive. This dive has lots of Spiny Sea Urchins so we reserve this one for Intro divers that are doing a second or third dive. This way they are less clumsy and can avoid the obstacles. Green Sea Turtles, tons of different types of fish can be found here at Mala Wharf.
In the heart of Kaanapali is Black Rock.
Located at the Sheraton Maui Resort and Spa. Black Rock is a nice dive for certified divers and as a second dive for the Beginner and first time divers. It is a wall dive with a sloping reef. Green Sea Turtles can be found here very often.
