Lanai Cathedral Cave Scuba Dive

Location: Lahaina, Maui

A short boat ride from our shop Maui’s neighboring island, Lanai, has unique underwater scenery molded by Hawaii’s volcanic history. Swim through lava shoots, arches, small caves – and of course Lanai’s crown jewel, the Cathedrals!

What to Expect

We leave the Mala boat ramp, just outside of Lahaina town, at 7:00am. As we zip across the channel to Maui's neighbor island of Lanai during a 45 minute boat ride our captain and crew will educate and inform you of the underwater topography and marine life that can be expected during your two tank dive.

Your dive master will select the day’s sites based on conditions, but you can expect to dive a Cathedral and one of Lanai’s other stunning reefs. This dive features caverns, lava shoots, swim throughs, and arches, and more!

The two dive sites we call Cathedrals are vast caverns where rocks have fallen from the ceiling allowing sun rays to shine through the crystal clear water creating a church-like experience. Making our 2 Tank Lanai Cathedrals Dive is a “bucket list” trip for any scuba diver.

The wildlife encounters don’t stop underwater, dolphins and whales are frequent visitors, and we always stop the boat to say aloha!

Experienced Professional Guides

We’ve been diving Lanai’s Cathedrals for nearly 30 years. Our experienced team are experts at spotting the best wildlife and showing you all the hidden gems hidden underwater and topside.

Our group sizes are small. You’ll receive personalized attention from your instructor who will guide you on two exceptional dives and answer your questions about marine life.

Plus, our team knows divers like to dive; we are the only company that allows you to stay underwater for a full hour on both dives so you can optimize your bottom time.
