Choosing an activity in Maui that is going to interest 5 adults of all ages and a 4 year old child is tricky - but today our whole family made some beautiful memories with Hawaiian Paddle Sports' Outrigger Canoe trip. The morning started with a 7am check in near Wailea, and a greeting by our guide, Rowdy. Rowdy had some great information about the company, the community projects that tours like this help fund and information about our excursion. Next we took a short hike to secret beach, to prepare the canoe. All of the instructions and demos were crystal clear and not intimidating at all. Then we hit the seas!! Rowdy had some awesome information about Hawaiian culture, her own heritage and an answer to every question we threw her way. There is some physical effort required by you don't need to be experienced in paddling at all to participate and enjoy. Then we had some fun snorkeling along some beautiful reefs, we saw eels, turtles, fish and gorgeous reefs. Here are the things I loved about this trip: their emphasis on respecting the ocean and taking care of our planet, the community consciousness, our guide - Rowdy, the emphasis on a group effort and all the pictures that our guide took for us and emailed us the same day. The pictures are included with the price and are not watermarked, so you can fully enjoy the day and not worry about bring expensive devices to capture these moments. Something to note: our trip on was a day where the sea was a bit rough, and I did end up getting a sea sick as I am very sensitive to motion sickness, so come prepared for that. This excursion was such an amazing way to bond together as Ohana.

I have been on Maui for 10 years but this was FAR the very best whale watch EVER! With getting my exercise done for the day, I got to see the gigantic whales in action up close and personal. The water was smooth as a baby's bottom and we could clearly hear the whales communicating below the water surface. Rowdy, our tour lady was amazing! Too bad there is only 5 star, I would give 11.

WOW!!!!! What an amazing experience! My husband and I are not very strong swimmers and haven’t kayak in a while so was a little anxious. Fortunately, we chose a private tour with Maui Paddle Sports which EXCEEDED all expectations! Peter, our guide, was top-notch – very experienced and knowledgeable, very skillful and patient, great teacher, and has a personality that is second to none! We started off learning about the different fishes, then paddled out, and then started to snorkel. Peter was very skilled in providing us enough freedom to safely explore on our own while also showing us around the lava rocks and pointing out the fish. We were so fortunate to see several fish and sea turtles. More importantly we were fortunate that Peter is a professional photographer so the pictures were just breathtaking! We also took time for Peter to teach us about Hawaiin history and folklore – definitely was a highlight because Peter is a great storyteller and it was the best sober version of Drunk History I have ever experienced! We cannot wait to go back and do this again – highly recommend it. The attention you receive far exceeds the additional cost you pay versus a group tour. I would definitely ask for Peter and if you do get him, bring your own water camera – my only regret was not taking pictures of Peter when he dove down to get close up pictures of the fish and sea turtle which would have made very cool pictures!

Pete and I had a wonderful time! Jason and Mikey were fun, patient, and kind. They gave us the information and support that we needed to make our first surfing lesson feel like a success. We are grateful for our experience and we look forward to returning for round two in the future.

Awesome! Our two boys (7&12) had a blast with Jesse doing a stand up paddle lesson. Quite possibly the best thing we did on maui!

Working with Hawaiian Paddle Sports on our SUP lessons for my wife and our two young girls was an amazing experience. Our girls are 4 and 7 and Peter, our guide, was patient and amazing in teaching us all how to get comfortable with the water and being on our Stand Up Paddle Board. If you're looking for a crazy awesome activity on Maui for yourself, a couple or a family, go with this won't regret it! "Working with Peter was great and we saw a Hawaiian monk seal and two sea turtles. It was AWESOME". -Lily, age 7

My brother and I just went surfing for the very first time, and it was awesome. Our trainer Jason was very friendly and knowledgeable. He had the helpful hints, maybe a little push or two, and I had caught my first wave! After a few tries I was able to catch a wave on my own (beginner's luck ;). After the lesson I was tired (so much paddling) but rejuvenated. The whole experience, simply unforgettable.

I took my mom who was visiting Maui last second on this adventure. We did not know what to expect...and what we got was beyond anything what we thought its going to be! Our guide Tim was GREAT! very knowledgeable about the island, whales, water, etc... We saw so much marine life: turtles, whales, fishes, etc...We were able to get sooooo close to the whales! Few of them where breaching right in front of us! Really amazing!!! Paddling in traditional outrigger hawaiian canoe made this experience even more unique! I would definitely recommend it to everyone visiting Maui to make this activity one of your top ones!!! Thank you Hawaiian Paddle Sports!
