Start at home, finish in Maui!

Becoming a certified diver will change your life and the Open Water Referral option is the BEST way to get it done. For this class, divers complete their academics and pool sessions at home with their local dive shop. Next, they come to Maui and dive, dive, dive! 

Training with Maui Dreams Dive Co means:

  • Maximum class size is only four students so you get plenty of personal attention
  • The cost of this class includes rental gear, lessons, and dives!
  • Learning to dive from shore and from the boat! 

Times and duration

  • Day 1: 7:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. meet at the shop and continue to the dive site
  • Day 2: 6:15 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. meet at the boat and finish up at the shop afterwards

Note: These courses typically run two days in a row, but not always. If you need special dates (for example, weekends only), please contact us and we’ll make it happen for you.

What to Expect

Prior to showing up for the first day of dive training, divers must complete the digital course materials, which is purchased separately through the training agency (PADI). Students must also have completed all pool training with their home dive shop. The original instructor will provide the student with their training record (referral form) so we can pick up right where they left off.

On your first day of training, we’ll meet at the shop, get you fitted for the equipment you’ll be using in class, and complete paperwork! After that, we’ll head down to the beach where the real fun begins and we will complete 2 dives.

On the second day, we’ll meet at Maalaea Harbor to complete our last two dives from the Maui Diamond boat! This gives divers experience diving from shore and from boats, and all under their instructor’s direct supervision. After our dives on the second day, we’ll return to the shop to complete logbooks and certifications.

Students ARE required to provide all of their own transportation to and from the dive sites, so please plan accordingly.

FAQs & Reminders

Is taking a Referral course the right decision for me?

Yes! There are many reasons why a Referral is the best option when learning to dive on Maui. CLICK HERE to find out why. 

My friend is already certified. Can they come with me on this class? 

On the first day of your class, they could  do a guided beach dive at the same location where your certification takes place. On the second day, they can sign up for a boat trip and they will dive with their guide while you complete your class with your instructor. 

However, if your certified freind really does want to come along and watch you complete your class, the answer is yes, they can join you for the same cost as you.
