PADI e-Learning gives you the convenience of completing the coursework online, at your own pace, and not while you’re trying to make the most of your vacation days. Spend less time with your nose in a book and more time enjoying the sunny days and sparkling water on Maui by signing up for PADI e-Learning before your trip begins!
Maui Diving will provide you with all the scuba equipment you need to complete your Open Water course. There is no extra charge for the use of our rental equipment. We even include mask and fins with your rental equipment at no extra charge. If you decide that you’d like to purchase your own mask and fins after the class, we have a wide variety of options in our retail store. It is great to have your own mask and fins as you’ll want to travel with these items in the future to make sure all of your diving or snorkeling experiences are comfortable and fit you perfectly!
All of our Open Water dives are conducted on the beach, however many students choose to upgrade their final dive experience with a boat trip instead of a shore dive at an additional fee.
