“Had a great experience with Capt. Steve, DMs Ben Ha and Dr. Michael!  They had a modest breakfast of muffins and juice/water/soda meeting us @ the boat ramp @ 630am.  First dive was Molokini crater (mid reef) about 70ft down.  Saw 2 reef sharks, eel garden, and tons of fish!  Second dive was St. Anthony wreck.  Saw 3 turtles (one giant one inside the hull).  Weather and visibility were fantastic!”


“I have gone diving with Makena Coast Charters over a dozen times.  Every single time is a positive experience with safety as their #1 priority.  Capt. Steve, Ben, and the crew are always teaching me new things about the Maui marine life.  “


“The real deal. Steve, Shane, and Colten were all great.  A seasoned crew that knows the local waters extremely well and use the hawaiian names for sites- instead of “Turtle Town” etc. . Captain Steve even films nature documentaries. We did 2 dives, leaving from the kihei Boat”


“Great day of diving with Makena Coast Dive Charter. Appreciated their attention to safety and making sure all had a wonderful dive. They went the extra mile to make sure the dive experience was fantastic. Did not disappoint! Will be back to dive with them again.”


“We had an excellent morning of diving with Gonzalo and Benja from Makena Coast Dive Charters. The weather top side was not ideal, but Gonzo and Benja handled it very well and made sure we had excellent safe dives. Benja is a professional photographer, and did a great job capturing our dive experience at a very reasonable extra cost (which allowed me to just enjoy the dive rather than fiddle with my own camera equipment to obtain inferior results).”


“This was our first trip to Maui and First dive here. All of the crew were friendly, helpful and safety conscious. They quickly took care of our gear including tank changes and rinsing if afterwards. They were happy to answer questions about diving and Maui in general. Would not hesitate to go diving with this company again.”


“I have gone diving with Makena Coast Charters over a dozen times. Every single time is a positive experience with safety as their #1 priority. Capt. Steve, Ben, and the crew are always teaching me new things about the Maui marine life.”


“We dived with Steve and his great crew on the 27th August. Our 1st dive was the Molikini Crater and the 2nd was on the wreck of the St Anthony. Both of these dives were amazing and we got some fantastic photos of the turtles. The service we recieved was outstanding. Safety -10/10; Professionalism – 10/10; Service 12/10. Thank you guys for an amazing day and some great memories.”


“I have been diving with Makena Coast dive charters for years, and I can honestly say that I will never dive with another dive company on Maui that goes to Molokini! The crew is awesome! Benja, the dive instructor, takes amazing photos and they are definitely worth purchasing! (he’s a professional photographer). Captain Steve is a very knowledgable videographer and he tells great stories! Always trying to get a laugh. They seem to know where all the great sea life is and how to make every dive unforgettable! Definitely a MUST while you are in Maui!”
