We did an outrigger canoe & kayak whale watching tour with J'sun and Curtis from Hawaiian Paddle Sports and it was truly amazing! As J'sun and Curtis reminded us, it's up to nature as to what we see, but we were very blessed today to see a mama, new baby and male escort right after launching from the outrigger spot.... More

My husband and I had a great time kayaking out to Molokini with Hawaiian Paddle Sports. Our guides were fantastic! Curtis and Matt showed us all the sights and kept us safe. While at Molokini, my husband and I went snorkeling for the first time. It was a wonderful experience and opened a whole new world for us. The entire... More

We did the kayak whale watching tour with Matt and it was absolutely amazing. It was a perfect calm, sunny day on the water and we were able to see whales that came very close to us and swam beneath us. Matt was so great, he taught us a lot about humpbacks and other ocean creatures and was so patient... More

We did a 2-person, 3-hour kayak whale watching tour in January 2017. Our guide, Molly, was very knowledgeable, energetic, and fun to talk to. I wasn't expecting that we would definitely see whales on our kayak tour, but we ended up very close to several pairs of humpback whales. The water was beautiful, warm, and calm; we went from Olowalu,... More

First time paddle-boarding experience and what great fun! Laurie was an awesome instructor and very patient and encouraging. Was a highlight of our kid's first trip to Maui. Everyone was able to get up.....even if Dad for only brief moments at a time before bailing into the ocean. Up close with green sea turtles, great photos as keepsakes, great family... More

Four of us went on the snorkeling/outrigger canoeing. It was a beautiful day and our guide J Sun was excellent. He offered to let us skip the snorkeling and watch whales, which we did. He was very informative and was attentive to our every request. Thanks, The Thuesons

This was really fun. We took the kayaking and snorkeling tour. We were beginners, but thanks to our guide Rowdy's help, we could make it. It was a bit hard at first, but I got the hang of it, and now I want to take up kayaking when I get home! We kayaked at Makena landing, and when we got... More

Our family (2 adults, 2 kids) took the morning outrigger tour with Tim. He was very knowledgable, respectful of the environment and the Hawaiian culture, and gave us a great tour of the reef. We were very lucky and came across a mother and baby humpback whale. He easily navigated around and with them so we could watch them swim.... More

We all had our first SUP lesson with Laurie. Wow-she was great with the kiddos and they both stood up thanks to her great instruction. One caveat, my kids are very comfortable in the ocean (pool does not equal ocean) so that started them right. when our 6 year old got a bit frustrated, Laurie gave her a board "tow"... More
