    Mala Wharf in my opinion is one of the best dives that you can do on Maui! If conditions permit and you are a critter junky it is simply awesome! Frogfish, nudibranchs, sponge crabs, turtles, commonly encountered reef sharks, octopus, etc... It's also a shallow dive that lends itself to ensured long bottom times. It's best with a guide for sure unless you a very experienced diver. Entry is not easy from shore but doable for experienced and properly equipped divers. A dive flag is a must! Entry needs to be from very specific spots as well.

    Anyone diving Maui in my humble opinion should strongly consider some of the wonderful shore diving there!! Some of the sites from shore can rival sites seen from the boat.

    Great frog pic!!!! Happy diving to all!

    Cheers

    you know, we bring the big boat from Oahu about once a year for an interisland trip, and the 3rd dive of the day on Maui is usually the Carthaginian, but I'm thinking we should switch to that pier. I have only ever heard good things.

    I think Mala is one of the best shore dives on Maui. Small area to explore but so much to see.

    Thanks for recommending Mala. Took my daughter there and saw sleeping reef sharks and her favorite, turtles. There’s a cleaning station near the end of the wharf debris field at around 15’. We lost count because they just kept coming in. Get there early; we were there at 8 am and there was no parking close by. Out by 9:30 am and larger groups of scuba divers, snorkelers, and spear fishers going out. I’m not sure if that’s a great combo.
