This is an Advanced Dive Charter. Must have logged a dive within the past 6 months and have a minimum of 25 logged dives.
Our advanced and most adventurous dive crosses the temperamental Paiolo channel for a glimpse of the elusive and beautiful hammer head shark. Off the island of Molokai is one of the few sites on the planet where one can commonly witness these sharks swimming among dense populations of fish. A blue water drift, divers are occasionally delighted by other species of sharks and oceanic creatures such as large barracuda and schools of jacks on this once in a lifetime trip. For the best possible chance to see sharks while in Maui, this is your dive. Hammerhead charter requires the use of a dive computer and safety sausage (SMB). This charter is not suitable for snorkelers. DIVE SITES:
~ Fish Rain ~ Depth: 70-130 Feet
Fish Rain is a drift dive in sometimes strong current and choppy seas known for the possibility of seeing some of the large pelagics. Some time will be spent away from the reef, mid-water, in the blue looking and waiting for the “Feature Presentation”…Scalloped Hammerhead sharks! In addition, we have seen Galapagos sharks, gray reef sharks, schools of jacks, large barracuda, ahi and dolphins here on our weekly Tuesday and Friday morning trips. There are reports that at one time or another, Tiger sharks, Hawaiian Monk seals, whale sharks, mahi, Thresher sharks and even the mighty Humpback whale have all been seen at this dive site. Back on the sloping wall reef, a wide variety of very colorful reef fish reside in great abundance. Don’t forget to go upright in the water column and spin around every once in a while as you are totally surrounded by fish! They are “raining down on you” hence the name.
~ Fish Bowl ~ Depth: 50-90 Feet
When the boat arrives at this dive site they might drop anchor and then take you to your adventure or opt to do this as a drift dive as well. If on anchor, as you cruise away from the boat you will begin to see the marine life pick up. As you cruise the bowl back towards Maui and look out over the edge, you will find huge boulders that are covered with coral, fish and octopus. There are ledges to be found at about 55 feet where a white tip reef shark is often spotted along with Hawaiian day octopus, eagle rays, reef sharks and plentiful colorful reef fish.
NOTE: This is an advanced dive. Divers should have recent diving experience, have good buoyancy control, be able to enter and exit the water, ie: climb the ladder in full scuba gear (except fins) and be good on air consumption. This charter is not suitable for snorkelers. Computers are required and can be rented from the shop if needed. Dive marker (safety sausage) is also required equipment for this charter. Nitrox is available for this charter, limited to 28% due to the depths of the dives.
