My husband and I will be in Maui for the first time in April and are looking for a good dive shop. We are both experienced divers and perfer to be in small groups without snorklers etc. if possible. We like the family feel versus cattle call.
We're staying at Aston Mahana, so close to Lahaina, but the only recommended dive shop I could find there is Lahaina Divers and I've heard they have short dive times because the whole group has to go up with the first diver to get low on air. I know there are other providers around there that offer shore dives, but we prefer boat dives.
Can anyone recommend a great dive shop? Closer is better due to the typical early mornings, but we're flexible.
I knwo Maui Dive Shop has some afternoon departures, but they seem more cattle-call style to me. Any thoughts on them?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
