We learned free diving breathing techniques and then went spear-fishing. Bobby was amazing, great teacher, and I felt safe the whole time. We also saw a large pod of dolphins so that was a plus. Highly recommend this

Seth! Thank you, we look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Maui. We can recommend some other adventurous things to do while on Maui. They may not be as great as us, but pretty close ;)

We started the day at 7:30am getting our wetsuits, snorkel gear and weights and headed to a classroom setting. The instructor Bobby seamlessly transitioned between reef knowledge, identifying invasive fish species to breathing techniques that can help in aiming and shooting the spear in the...More
