Hammerhead Shark Scuba Dive on Molokai

Location: Lahaina, Maui

Travel to the island of Molokai to dive with large schools of scalloped hammerheads on the most adventurous and advanced scuba dive charter in Maui county.

Molokai is one of the few places in the world where you can see huge schools of hammerheads. In addition to the mindblowing shark action, Molokai’s reefs are full of healthy coral and plentiful fish with a backdrop of the clearest water you’ll find anywhere in the world.


What to Expect

We leave the Mala boat ramp, just outside of Lahaina town and cross the Pailolo channel on our way to our neighbor island of Molokai.

Molokai is famous for its high sea cliffs, fresh waterfalls, untouched nature, fringe reefs, and its resident hammerhead shark population. Dive with large schools of scalloped hammerheads on our most adventurous and advanced charter.

Once we are at the dive site, you don your dive gear and situate yourself on the pontoon so you’re ready to back roll into the crystal clear water. Your anticipation builds until the captain shouts“dive, dive, dive!” You plunge in and descend.

As your ears equalize, the current carries you along the section of pristine reef we affectionately call “fish rain” because the thousands of fish in the water column really do look like raindrops. You shift your vision from the fish above to the reef below and spot a baby shark hidden under a small rock, next to it is a rare blue dragon nudibranch, and just a little further is a massive moray eel.

As you kick off the reef into the bright blue, five shining barracuda catch your eye and you take a double look because they are so big you think they might be sharks. Floating through the blue your guide gives the hammerhead signal and points to a lone hammerhead shark who swims past and disappears. Your adrenaline is pumping.

A few moments later that shark returns with all of their friends and a massive school of one hundred plus hammerheads gracefully swims past you as you drift through the current! You shallow up to do a safety stop and start to hear clicking noises, everyone in the group searches for the source, a curious pod of spinner dolphins circle around you as you wrap up the best dive of your life.
