The water was so pretty and warm, and the boat was very cool. Ryan was very nice, responsible and a very good instructor . The water activities were incredibly fun-- we were able to go water skiing, wake surfing and tubing! We would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who comes to Maui. It's the only place you'll find water... More

This was our 2nd trip to Maui as a family and the single "must-do" from our kids was booking with Wake Maui. Ryan did not disappoint as he could not have been a better host/teacher/guide for my three sons as they played on the water. The whole experience is low-key but so much fun. From picking us up on the... More

Ryan did an incredible job teaching my son's how to wake surf. He has a great personality and really knows what he is doing. He set the day up to do what ever we wanted. This included wake surfing tubing snorkel and going for a deep blue swim. This was time and money well spent. I highly recommend doing a... More

We just returned from a fabulous private charter with Ryan. I booked the wakeboarding/-surfing upgrade as a birthday present for my husband, and it was well worth it. Ryan was super friendly, relaxed, and encouraging. My husband got up very quickly and thoroughly enjoyed his experience. We also stopped to see HUGE sea turtles, and our way back, happened upon...

We had a great time at Wake Maui. Captain Ryan made sure that we both had lots of fun and was a great tour guide.

Our family (2 teenage boys) went last year during spring break and we are back again to go sometime in the next week or so. Can't wait and will follow up with another review after the trip.

Exciting whale watching with Captain Ryan. The adults as well as the kids had a fantastic time! Highly recommend Wake Maui! Plan on hiring Captain Ryan when we return to the island on our next vacation.

We wanted a close encounter of the mammoth mammal kind. We tried one of those Maui whale boats and found the experience to be just ok. There are too many people on the boat, you have absolutely no say in where you go, it is difficult to move around the boat even to spot the whales and very challenging to... More

Spending the morning wakeboarding, wakesurfing, and snorkeling with Wake Maui was by far the best activity we did during our week long trip to Maui. Captain Ryan is friendly, professional, and accommodating. He will make sure your group has a wonderful time. I really enjoyed being able to have an affordable private charter that offered so many different activities and... More
