There is no better way to experience the majestic beauty of Maui! A one-of-a-kind experience paddling a Hawaiian outrigger canoe and to view the breathtaking beauty of Maui and stunning coastline of lahaina. An opportunity in the ocean discover ancient Polynesian voyaging traditions and play on the open ocean amongst whales, dolphins, turtles, and sea-life. A perfect way to enjoy an afternoon! We also have surfboards, SUP boards & Kayaks available to rent cheaper than anyone else on the beach.
