PADI Dive Resort,established in 1970; small groups offer personalized service with aloha ( "We know where the critters are!"); Daily Introductory Dives (Intro dives count toward certification); guided reef dives; PADI certifications; underwater scooter dives on the the "hands free" Apollo AV2 Scooters; Night dives and boat dives too. We are at a beachfront location on the border of Wailea and Kihei. The waters here are calmer and clear; the inside reef is excellent for beginners and the outer reef makes for epic scooter diving!

Owned and operated by Diana & Steve Madaras from Catalina Scuba Luv. Check website for weekly "Critter of the week report".

Scuba Steve was awesome today - he is so patient and calm - what a great instructor! The reef at Mana Kai is beautiful - and the water was clear today. Goes at a good pace for all levels of divers on the trip. Would highly recommend and would use again for sure! Thanks Steve!

Steve was a a great instructor and dive guide! He set us up with all the equipment in a quick and seemless manner, put everyone at ease, and led us on a nice and mellow dive along the coastline of Keawakapu. He pointed out the white-mouth moray, damselfish, and we saw plenty of turtles! Thank you for a sweet morning... More

Simple shore dive. The highlight was using the underwater propulsion device. Great fun. We covered s lot of ocean and had a great sense of the devices. Will do again. And steve was a great instructor.

My wife and I visited Maui for our honeymoon and decided to go Scuba Diving for our first time. We therefore only got to see shallow waters but even that was mesmerisingly beautiful. We only booked the day before our dive and were delighted to find availability. Randy was our instructor and he was excellent. Photos were taken throughout the... More

Steve and Diana are awesome. I had a great dive 2 months ago. I have been diving with them for more than 5 years. They are true professionals. Safety is number one and great experience number 2. I was able to see two wrecks during our scooter dive from the beach.

Steve was great. My wife, son and I did a shore dive followed by a scooter dive. We had a great experience, Steve was very good with us and we got to see an Eagle Ray. This is our third year to dive with Scuba Luv Maui an I look forward to doing it again next year.

2nd year with these guys doing a scooter dive. Great fun. Steve (either one) will make certain you are informed, comfortable, and enjoying yourself. I have to admit, it is a little like golf. I own the equipment and I know how to play, but I still stink at it. So, even if you are afraid you won't be a... More

This was a very easy dive trip for me. Staying at the Days Inn in Makena Maui and walking down to the beach and then suit up and walk in to the water was so wonderful.

Worked with Diana before coming to Maui. Patient, encouraging, helpful, professional, friendly, enthusiastic! Met Steve and Steve while in Maui. Both are fantastic instructors. They have the combination of knowledge, experience, love of diving, and concern for the diver that is tops I've ever seen. I learned a lot, was safe, and had fantastic dives.

Mahalo for your kind words! For us, the reward is meeting kindred spirits like yourself who just love to dive and appreciate the beauty and freedom of diving. It was a pleasure to dive with you and we hope you have some lasting memories of MAUI UNDERWATER! Much aloha, Di and " The Two Steve's" More
