Mike Severns Diving has been offering scuba diving excursions for over well over 30 years off the shores of Maui and Molokini. Launching from the Kihei Boat Ramp every morning except Sundays, Mike Severns Diving will take up to twelve guests on a 2-tank adventure aboard Pilikai, a 38 foot painted aluminum Munson with a hard-top sun roof, broad swim platform, ladders designed especially for divers’ fins, head, and fresh water shower. All dives include tanks and weights and other gear is available for rent. They use ScubaPro BCs and ScubaPro regulators with Oceanic computers and 80 cu ft. tanks.
Meeting time is 6am and, once onboard, you’ll be offered coffee, juice, fresh-baked macadamia nut cinnamon rolls, water, soda, and salty snacks. They also offer digital underwater camera rentals so you can capture photos of your adventure (12.1 megapixel Panasonic Lumix TS4).
Mike Severns guides are current in CPR and first aid and are passionate about scuba diving and Maui’s marine life. Many are highly educated and all of them are friendly and fun, sharing their knowledge and pointing out the various underwater treasures. These guides will add much value to your diving experience.
The dive sites for the day are determined in the morning once the Pilikai gets out on the water. Your guides will choose based on weather and ocean conditions as well as requests from their guests. Often, guests will dive several days with them so they like to check out different sites during those days. Typically, the first dive will be done at Molokini crater, Hawaii’s premier marine preserve, that offers crystal clear water, an exceptionally healthy coral reef, a plethora of tropical fish and often larger animals like manta rays and whale sharks. Other dive spots include St. Anthony, a 65-foot longliner that was sunk to add to a man-made reef, La Perouse Bay, a favorite place for resting dolphins, and 85 ft. pinnacle, an ancient Hawaiian fishing grounds, among others. Besides seeing schools and varieties of tropical fish, you may also see dolphins, manta rays, eels, octopus, sea turtles, frogfish and many others.
