Scuba Mike, a scuba diving guide on Maui for over 30 years, offers a special Scooter Dive, perfect for certified divers searching for a new kind of thrill in Hawaii.

The use of an underwater scooter, or Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV), allows scuba divers to travel up to 4x faster and 8x further than a normal dive. By allowing these easy-to-use scooters to do much of the work for you, you're able to extend your time and range in the water. Many consider this a fun alternative to regular scuba diving tours, and we definitely recommend giving it a try on your next trip to Maui.



In order to ensure safe scooter use, Scuba Mike offers the following tips:

  • Ascend & Descend Slowly - To avoid problems with air pressure, follow the same rules as a regular scuba diving by making slow, gradual ascents and descents.
  • Hang On - The scooter is not connected to you, so make sure to grip the handles!
  • Stay Away from the Bottom - Since the scooter is powered by a propeller, approaching the bottom can cause sand to get stirred up, disturbing nearby marine life and ruining underwater visibility for others divers nearby. Keep a safe distance from the bottom and enjoy the clarity!
  • Stay with a Dive Master - Just because you're moving faster and further doesn't mean you should go off alone. Always stay with a dive master to ensure you return to the proper starting point with a safe amount of air.
  • Enjoy Yourself - Scooters allow less exertion and more range. You will need less air than on a normal dive and can swim longer and further. Enjoy the experience!

Scooter dives are offered in several locations throughout the island and are $99 per person. To book your dive, contact Scuba Mike directly at MauiScubaMike.com (808) 250-5494.
