Types of Diving and Best Dive SpotsCathedral image by Captain Steve Juarez

Lana’i is known for its superior visibility and cavern diving. Cathedrals I and II are the most popular sites and your charter will likely take you to one of them. Plus, if you love to find new fish or see rare invertebrates, Lana’i is your place.
Lahaina, Maui: Gateway to Lana'i
While it's possible to stay on Lana'i, most dive charters depart from Lahaina, Maui. The crossing takes 30-45 minutes and, during winter months, you'll likely see humpback whales.

Additional Training
Lava dome diving is beautiful but all it takes is one clumsy diver to ruin the visibility - and the magic. Be sure your buoyancy skills are dialed in and be sure to bring a dive light.
