We had a good dive with Doug who rearranged his schedule on short notice. He took us to Makena Landing, a pretty good dive site with lots of interesting critters. The introduction was good and he took good care of my girlfriend, who is not a very experienced diver. However, Doug is not a very law-abiding citizen. He actively swam... More

Doug offers a great guided-dive trips. From the first email to our dive date was excellent. From dealing with different time zones, varying diver experience to 8:50am on our dive day was great. A great dive briefing, gear availability and seeing 7 turtles on one dive amazing. Doug even asked if it was ok to collect garbage on the dive... More

I came to Maui for a week about two months ago and wanted to do some diving. I'm a novice diver and have had my Open Water Diver certification for less than a year and had only logged a couple dives since then. I was a little apprehensive but Shaka Doug put me at ease. I searched around online for... More

My wife and I recently visited Maui again for strictly pleasure and relaxation. I dove with Shaka Doug on other trips and I always try to plan at least a day with him because he knows exactly where to go to see a great variety of underwater critters. I dove in late September when the waters were calm and very... More

Did a couple dives with Doug. He is very accommodating to schedules and easy to get a hold of if you happen to be struggling for dive windows due to poor weather. I found Doug to be laid back yet safe...he rolls on island time and never seems to be in a hurry. It is evident he still enjoys himself.... More

Shaka Doug is the coolest shore dive guide ever. Love his fully stacked School bus with all the needed gear to do an awesome shore dive around Kihei, Wailea and Makena. He seems to have still all the fun himself. Affordable, well guided and awesome encounters with whitetip sharks and even a Monk Seal.

I went on a newbie lesson with Doug and it was amazing! He explained how the dive was going to take place, the rules, the equipment clearly and in a way that was both entertaining and understandable. It was interesting getting in the water and adjusting to the surroundings but I know next time I dive, thanks to Shaka Doug,... More

Doug was an excellent instructor! I earned my PADI certificate via Doug's class and dove with him many, many times. I was always comfortable and felt very safe. Before I met Doug I would hyperventilate while snorkeling, but after he taught me a few safety tips I was diving off shore! I worked up enough knowledge and skill that Doug... More

Shaka Doug is the best for a guided shore dive in Maui. If you are vacation, you don't have time to explore all the nooks and crannies of a dive site, like you do at home. Doug does it all for you because he dives it all the time. He knows where all the critters are whether it be a... More

I have been diving with Shaka Doug for several years now. The water is not always the clearest, but Doug never disappoints. I enjoy the relaxed pace, and the texts the night before if a new dive is coming up. I will dive with him on every trip.
