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! We are also mobile and can dive up to six different sites including Keawakapu Reef, Turtle Town, Five Graves, Wreck of the St. Anthony, Maluaka Reef, The Landing Craft and The Tank! Owned and operated by Diana & Steve Madaras from Catalina Scuba Luv. Check website for weekly "Critter of the week report".

My eleven year old daughter and my wife and I wanted to dive while visiting Maui on a family vacation. We are all certified, but the youngest can only dive to 35 feet. We called two other dive shops that were recommended to us, but they didn't want to deal with us because of the depth limitation. They said all... More

We did our open water certification dive 1 & 2 with Pat. Overall it was a good experience, but due to the weather our dive had to be moved and when we did dive the visibility was about 10-15ft. Pat was great at reviewing all the skill we would be doing in the water and it was a good experience... More

An absolutely fantastic experience from the initial orientation through to the completion of the dive. The professionalism and the attention to detail gave me total comfort in their knowledge and experience and their commitment to safety was paramount.

While by wife and I had practiced SCUBA skills in a swimming pool, this was our first "real" diving experience. Our hotel recommend Scuba Luv, and are we were entirely pleased with our experience. Pat was very professional and made the somewhat awkward process of donning our gear a breeze. Since this was a first true dive, we kept it... More

We are both fairly experienced divers and we had always wanted to try a scooter dive (James Bond style!). It was phenomenal and we look forward to hopefully going again. Diana and Steve met us right on time at Keawakapu Beach with all of their great equipment. They immediately made us feel at ease even though we last dived a... More

Scuba Luv were perfect for my family on our recent trip to Maui. They were very flexible and accomodating to our needs and schedule. Kev is a super guide and instructor- my wife finished her open water certification and the rest of us (including two 13 year old boys) took advantage of some beautiful refresher dives in the process.

My mother and I did our first and second dives through Scuba Luv with Kev and really had a blast. We needed a little extra time working out all the skills but Kev patiently helped us through our challenges through two very enjoyable dives. We'd definitely recommend Kev & Scuba Luv!

I was on island and had 2 dives with ScubaLuv. If our schedule wasn't so packed, I would have lined up more. I noticed the guides preparing on the beach and made a few inquiries. The company was highly recommended by the complex in which we were staying. Pat was the guide on both of my dives and could not... More
