Great trip with our guide Garrett. Very knowledgeable , friendly, and fun. Had two snorkel stops with one being just okay. Great but respectful whale encounters - really made the trip so worthwhile. Overall a great paddle. Just a note: The past 2 times we were in Maui we booked with South Pacific Kayaks and left out of Makena. We... More

Four of us booked the kayak tour to the Pali cliffs. We were expecting a beautiful morning workout and were treated to that plus a good 60 minutes of up-close whale watching. Our guide Corey (I think?!) was really great - getting us responsibly close to the whales and giving us great info about the whales, maui, and hawaii in... More

We went out out of Makena and kayaked to two different snorkeling spots. Cory was very informative. We saw many types of fish, a handful of turtles, a spotted eagle ray and a manta ray! Cory was great to help our party member safely back to shore when sea sickness set in. We had a great trip and learned a... More

We had a great time kayaking and snorkeling in West Maui with Maui Eco Tours. It was our second time kayaking in Maui, so we went to a different spot than last time. We didn't get to see as many sea turtles as we did the first time since the tide was a little murky but Jake, our guide did... More

We left from Makena Beach in Maui. Our guide, Jake, though young, was clearly experienced and knowledgeable. ( plus he was damned funny and entertaining! ). He really helped the couple on our trip who had never kayaked- and when they had such a hard time, he made it funny and we laughed so much! God, it was fun! We... More

My husband, daughter (13), and son (11) did the kayak trip which included whale watching and snorkeling. Our tour started out with Garrett, our instructor, leading us out to where we could spot some of the whales. We saw a few in the distance and could hear them blowing and making all different noises as if they were right next... More

My sister and I booked surf lessons at 10am and then our husbands had lessons at 12. There was originally a bit of confusion about our booking but the team that was at the surf location quickly fixed it and were very helpful and kind about it all. We had an amazing time! We ended up being the only people... More

We went on a 4.5 hour kayak tour with Garret on Jan 29, 2016. What a fantastic experience! We did some whale watching & saw a mother whale nursing her calf...pretty cool. Garret shared lots of relevant facts & information along the way. We then snorkeled at two different spots- both were beautiful. It's hard to describe the peacefulness and... More

Rusty was a wonderful guide. We were a little nervous that sharing a kayak would test our marriage but we survived. Rusty was friendly and informative. The early time frame was perfect and we were fortunate enough to encounter 3 sea turtles. If you're looking for a fun easy going tour this is a great option. Rusty suggested one of... More
