There is only ONE charge for your group of 1 or 2 divers. Please contact me if you are a group of 3 or more. Please, also contact me if you do not see your desired time or date is available.

We will spend up to 4 hours together including a training session and a shore dive in the beautiful waters of Maui in Wailea!

First, a classroom portion and then a skills session. In the classroom portion we will complete paperwork including a scuba medical statement, you must be able to answer 'No' to all medical questions.

Please perform an Internet search "RSTC scuba medical statement" if you have a listed medical condition, you must provide a physician's note stating you are medical clear to dive with no restrictions. Not having a doctors note will not entitle you to a refund or to reschedule.

Next, I will custom fit you with all the gear you will need, review the scuba equipment and safety procedures such as continuously breathing, staying together etc.

In the ocean I will demonstrate two skills underwater and then you will perform the two skills. Once that is completed I will guide you on an exploration of the underwater world.

This will be a shore dive, not a boat dive.
Other things to note
If you are prone to panic or anxiety attacks or are not comfortable swimming in the ocean this Experience is not suggested. For 12 hours after the dive do not go up in elevation above 1000 feet.

Such a patient instructor! This was my first time trying diving and it turned out I had a harder time getting my nerves together while underwater. But Barry took what could have been a total disaster and really turned it around. He patiently stuck with me and helped me overcome my fears. Ultimately he took me under, holding my hand the whole time, so that despite my panic I still got to see some cool fish and a giant sea turtle. I am so thankful that I had Barry as an instructor for this first time experience that revealed some inner anxieties I didn’t know I had. For anyone at any skill (or anxiety) level, this is your guy!!

That was an amazing experience! Barry is a very good teacher, very patient and endorsing! And also he won't push you into doing smth you're not comfortable with. I've never tried scuba diving or even snorkeling before, but with his support and thorough explanation I was able to overcome my fears and dive, and it felt very safe! I've seen a lot of beautiful fish and a turtle. Highly recommend, especially for beginners. Barry will go an extra mile (and in our case literally 30 miles, because we did a drive to Lahaina for better underwater conditions) to make your experience unforgettable! Will definitely do it again! Thank you Barry!

Barry is super knowledgeable and we felt safe diving for the first time with him. He was very thorough in preparing us for the dive, quizzing us along the way to make sure we knew what to do. He was also patient with us especially when my wife needed more time to acclimate to breathing with mouth only underwater. We also got great photos and videos to document the adventure! Awesome experience overall.

This was a great experience for a first timer. Barry is a great instructor with a lot of empathy, he made me feel like he genuinely cares for me to have a good experience, and it added a lot to the experience. I wholeheartedly recommend this.

Barry was awesome!! I booked this lesson as a sort of "face your fears" thing because I am absolutely terrified of the ocean (mostly of sharks and jellyfish but the whole lack of oxygen thing also freaks me out). I was with my dad and, thankfully, no other people... I definitely recommend diving with someone you trust and won't feel awkward making a fool of yourself in front of. Barry's safety "class" was about an hour long and covered all of the things we needed for safety and also some fun stories. After the "class", we got into our gear and, boy howdy, that stuff is HEAVY! If you're not comfortable standing for a while then walking down stairs with a lot of weight on your back, this probably isn't for you! We got to the beach and into the water, swam to our first sandy destination where we covered some basics then went down for our knowledge check... It was only ~10ft deep but it was terrifying. I am not prone to panic but I panicked... I had to go back up to the surface and calm myself down (which meant that Barry and my dad had to come up with me). Barry was super understanding, got me calmed down and hyped up my self confidence so we could continue. We dove, we did not die and we got some pretty stellar pictures from it. Barry showed us some awesome things and guided us through the process with a firm but gentle hand. Definitely recommend Barry and this experience!

My husband and I came to Maui for business. I had classes from 8-12 everyday. Barry typically does the intro to scuba lessons in the morning. He was very flexible and allowed us to still experience this later in the day (extending his work hours!). At first I thought the price was a little high- but after the experience, seeing the set-up, watching him prepare for the dive, learning the skills and the responsibility of taking two people 30-feet below the water and keeping them alive- ARE WORTH EVERY PENNY!!! I truly don’t believe you will get this intimate, non-rushes experience with ANYONE else. Safety: Barry made sure we were completely safe before even taking us to the water. We had to do a quiz to make sure we understood the rules- we had to demonstrate our skills on land and then again in 8 feet of water. He was within 2-feet if us the whole time and we didn’t dive until he knew we were safe to do so. Patience: Barry was super patient! I asked a ton of questions (some when I think back were silly) and he answered each question without making me feel ridiculous. (Like are there sharks? And what do we do if we see one??). Barry very gently reminded me we were in the ocean and there are definitely sharks but then reassured me we would be safe. Pictures: I purchased a special camera case for my iPhonex... it was very expensive- I did so exclusively for these pictures. I wanted to capture EVERY MOMENT! When we got ready to go he explained there were no cameras on the first five and that he would take plenty of photos for us (for an additional charge with video). You can imagine my disappointment- DO NOT LET THIS DETER YOU FROM THIS DIVER! He was absolutely responsible in making this decision for his clients! With all the steps I had to remember 30-feet below the water, holding my regulator (because I was NOT going to let it come out), knowing how to signal help and remembering all the safety cues to keep us and the fish safe- WE COULD HAVE NEVER taken our own photos/videos. Not only did this ensure we followed all the rules- we were forced to take in every moment, every movement and be in the present to fully enjoy the entire experience. Photo prices: Barry had to monitor us as well as take pictures to capture our memories. He did just that- we paid a little extra and got the video. I was pleased with the photos and the video. Last: Teaching- when it came time to do the big dive (I say big because 30-ft was huge for us newbies)- I went down too fast- my ears felt like they would exploded and I panicked- immediately requesting to go back up (wasting time and air)... I had a little panic attack at the surface- Barry gave me some tough love- made me repeat “I can do this” and then before I had time to obsess- he gently made us start the decent again- this time he held on to me lowering me a few feet at a time so I could feel safe, allow my ears to pop and remain calm. If it wasn’t for his patience, calmness and his motivation I would have missed out on one of the most incredible experiences of my life! Mahalo Barry! We are forever grateful and will absolutely look you up next time we are in Maui!
