Open Water Referral Dives

(usually 4 dives, 2 mornings)

You have climbed the learning curve back home or elsewhere so you can concentrate on the adventurous portion of your open water certification here on Maui.... good choice. You’re here to show us your stuff and were anxious to see what you can do. But we’ll still have time to look at the turtles because we won’t take classes larger than four divers. We won’t stop your dive or the conversation at an arbitrary time limit because we only take one group per day. You will need to bring any medical sign off (dated within 30 days), log books, recreational dive planners and your training referral forms. We highly recommend a wet suit, fins and mask. Rental wet suits are available at no extra cost but fit may be better out of a cross brand selection at a well stocked dive shop. We suggest the dive shop you're starting from. If you like what they've done for you so far it's a nice way to show your appreciation and keep them in business.   Establishing and maintaining a relationship with a local dive shop will help keep you active as a diver.

We'll meet at the shop at 7:15 or the beach at 7:30 in the morning for your dives. Bring your swim suit, towel, sun block and any personal gear. Everything else you need for the dives is provided including light snacks and drinks. We're usually finished early afternoon.
