It's been my lifelong dream to become scuba certified. I had no idea I'd be staying so close to a PADI center, so I decided spur of the moment that now was the time. I did the two day eLearning course, and then made my way to the Wailea resort to train from none other than Tom, the shop's owner. When I started the course, I had never so much as put on a scuba tank before. No worries - he led me through the basics, and my first open water dive was the free introductory lesson offered to everyone. He said if I liked it and wanted to continue, it would count towards my certification. I LOVED it, and kept coming back so I could complete the rest of the process. It was intense, and there were definitely times when I was nervous about what I had to do to get certified, but I relaxed every time I remembered that Tom would be with me, knowing the absolutely absurd amount of expertise he had. In the end, after a week of learning online, in the pool and in the water, I officially passed my certification! When Tom asked what I'd do next, I mentioned that I wanted to do a dive at Mala Ramp. Tom's employee, JJ, overheard me and mentioned he'd be going there the next day and was happy to take me along. That dive was one of the most magical days of my life, and the absolutely perfect cap on our trip. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the amazing crew at Island Scuba and Surf School. I trusted you guys with my life, and you helped me realize my dream. I recommend them 100000% to anyone who wants to learn to scuba, whether you're simply trying a free introductory dive or whether you're committing to a course!

I did an intro class with Maddy on April 10th and had a great time! She was very clear in her instructions and really helpful. We went for a dive from the beach and I had a really great time. Saw lots of fish and several sea turtles. Highly recommend!

My teenage sons and I went scuba diving with Maddie. We had a brilliant morning She set us all up really well in the pool and made sure we knew what to do before we hit the ocean. Once in the ocean we swam with the fish and turtles and she captured some great pictures and videos. Highly recommend scuba with Maddie when you’re in Wailia.

Staying at the Wailea Beach Resort and did the intro dive class and Ocean Exercusion. It's been years since my last dive and highly recommend if this is your first dive or have kids you find a great instructor. Maddie definitely fits the bill and ensured we were all taken care of and had a great dive experience!

My boyfriend and I did a dive with Madalyn when we were in town and absolutely loved it. She was fantastic and made us both comfortable and the dive safe/enjoyable.
