Preserving the Ocean’s Legacy

At Dive Maui, our hearts beat in unison with a greater purpose: preserving the wonders of the deep for the future generations that follow. Our unwavering dedication to environmental sustainability guides every aspect of our business and diving practices.

In the vast expanse of Hawaii, we are blessed to call this paradise our home. It is this profound connection to our surroundings that fuels our relentless commitment to being stewards of the environment.

With unwavering devotion, we adhere to the highest standards and protocols, ensuring that each dive is an act of sustainability. We do this not only for ourselves but for the souls who will dive into these waters long after our time has passed.

Our Environmental Commitment

Deep within the depths of our souls, we hold an unyielding promise to nurture the ocean and its inhabitants, as we embark on a profound journey of environmental practices at Dive Maui.

Together, we shatter the chains of single-use plastic water bottles, liberating our facilities and boats from their grip. In their place, we embrace refillable jugs brimming with pure water and refreshing juice, while gifting each diver a cherished memento—a reusable water bottle crafted from recycled materials.

Above and below the water’s surface, our dedicated staff stand as guardians of nature’s wonders. Through our enlightening dive briefings, we share the secrets of minimizing our impact on these hallowed sites. Furthermore, our staff diligently practice diving protocols, empowering you to enhance your skills beneath the waves, unlocking the full essence of every dive while fostering an unwavering reverence for the marine environment.

The heartbeat of our business resonates with the rhythm of sustainable tourism. We warmly welcome your questions and invite spirited discussions about our steadfast standards. For we believe that only through unified efforts can we truly safeguard the ocean, preserving its magnificence for the generations yet to come.

Malama Kai Foundation

The Dive Maui team has partnered with the Malama Kai Foundation to install moorings on Lanai so we, and other dive operators, can dive without dropping anchors that destroy reefs.

Our team has taken a leadership role in the mooring line project. We are proud to have installed the last 15 moorings on Lanai that are permitted by the Army Corps of Engineers.
