    Hello all,

    I'm looking at booking a trip to Maui in February with my 17 year old daughter. How is the diving then? What thickness wetsuit will I need? What are good topside activities? Any information you could provide would be most appreciated!

    Before any of your questions make sure you understand the requirements to come to the islands. With current trends I. would not bet we will be out of our testing/quarantine requirements

    All you need is a negative Covid test within a few days of arrival, right?

    Headed to the big island on the 28th. Negative COVID test 72 hours prior to departure. No quarantine Alaska Air has set up rapid PCR testing. I’m looking forward to 5 weeks of shore diving (with HP steel tanks).

    Suggest a 3 or 5 mm wetsuit. I’m 200 lb Canadian and used to cooler waters, and found 3 mm just fine, but a smaller person would likely prefer 5 mm. I dove Mala warf, & did a scooter diver a Kaheliki Beach Park with Steve Eedy. Gear is excellent & he’s an excellent guide/instructor.

    In Feb expect water temps in the mid 70’s and suit up accordingly. Where you stay on the island will impact who you dive with and topside activities. Kaanapali and Kapalua on the left coast or south Maui. I prefer to stay on Kaanapali Beach but the diving is generally closer with shorter boat rides when staying in South Maui. Lots of great restaurants all over. Mama’s Fish House on the north and Fleetwood’s in Lahaina are two very good ones.

    Not all testing facilities are acceptable. Have to upload results to their system as well.
