Shawn and Joy were absolutely wonderful! We went on an early morning snorkel trip to see some whales in February. They gave us extra time at no additional charge and Shawn even breached for us in order to bring "good luck" to our sightings. It worked because 10 minutes later we were fortunate to see a full breach (by an... More

Seeing Maui from the beautiful waters around Wailea is amazing and there's no better way to see it than by kayaking with Shawn and Joy of Wailea Watersports! Early morning is best when the winds are calmer. We arrived at 8a and Shawn had the kayaks all set up on Polo Beach and ready to go. The water is crystal... More

Shawn and Joy were SUCH a blast on our private Molokini sea kayaking trip. If you're going to Maui to have an adventure, and not sit on your butt at a resort, THIS is what you're looking for. I'm so, SO sad we didn't find out about this place until the end of our trip. We would have hung out... More

We had a perfect morning of kayaking and whale-watching on glassy calm waters with Jeff. He was a perfect host/guide; he made us feel welcome and comfortable and delivered what we went for - WHALES! It was amazing and absolutely the highlight of our trip. We only wish we would have had time to do it again! Thanks Jeff! Mahalo!

Wow! Talk about a fun morning! We met Joy and Shawn (family operators) early in the morning and set out to see Turtles and the Whales. We Kayaked for about 45 minutes and were treated to some unbelieveable Humpback sightings for the rest of the morning. Both Joy and Shawn are very easy going, and very affable. Enjoyed the entire...

We had an amazing experience kayak/snorkelling with Shawn from Wailea Water Sports. Shawn was fun and knowledgable and super easy to get along with. The tour was wonderful; we saw whales, turtles, octopus, and tons of beautiful fish. We could even hear the whale song while under water. If you get the chance this is definitely the way to snorkel... More

Had a fun morning of kayaking and snorkeling- the location is well chosen, and the launch time put us on the water during prime conditions. We say plent of turtles within two feet of our two-seater kayaks. Shawn was a fun and thoughtful guide- offering attentive service and insights into the sea and sights -but allowing us to enjoy a...

Not only is Shawn a very amusing instructor, he is also patient and exudes a true Hawaiian attitude. We scheduled a one-hour stand up paddle lesson and had such a good time. He suggested we bring out snorkel gear (minus the fins) and had a plan to keep everything hooked up so we could still paddle. As a result our... More
