Captain Mikal is an architect, PADI IDC SCUBA instructor, world traveler, and builds treehouses in his spare time. He spent years gathering inspiration before building PAIKEA. PAIKEA is a well-balanced and versatile vessel perfect for adventures of all sorts. Capitán Mikal habla español, tambien.
Along with his partner Maggie, they built Maui Pacific Divers to connect people to the beauty found both above & below the waves. Maggie is an artist and educator who often paints the view from the deck of the boat!
"We saw 2 different pods of dolphins, whales, I swam with the biggest manta ray I’ve ever seen, and swam with a honu (sea turtle). The food was great, the crew was fantastic, and a very smooth boat ride. After this, I will only use Maui Pacific Divers."
"The boat was spacious, but intimate, which was perfect! They were very accommodating and well supplied. They really did exceed our expectations and I will definitely be booking all of my future boat outings with Maui Pacific Divers!"
"Hands down the BEST day I’ve ever had on the water."
Experience A Connection With Maui's Ocean Wildlife That Will Stay With You Your Entire Life.
When you charter a boat for your friends and family, you make memories together. Your photos are of each other and the whales, not the back of other people’s heads. And you’re so close to the water that during whale season, you might even find yourself eye to eye with a whale during your Maui scuba diving tour, or while scuba diving Maui!
