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

I should acknowledge we didn't hire Wake Maui for traditional boating fun, though we had a memorable and great time nonetheless. Instead we hired their services to take us out on the water to scatter my Mom's husband's ashes into the sea. The captain, Ryan, was truly a gentlemen and respected the situation and my Mom's sensitivity to the activity.... More

Both my wife and I had never wake boarded before and after a brief five minute tutorial captain Ryan had us up and going. We had an absolute blast! I strongly recommend you add this to your Maui itinerary!!

Ryan was great and the trip was absolutely the highlight of our vacation. We cannot recommend highly enough. We went wake surfing, wake boarding, snorkeling with turtles, and even saw a pod of a couple hundred dolphins all in two hours time.

Captain Ryan took our whole clan - myself, wife, 4 daughters (ages 9-16)- and we had a ball. I personally love morning activies and this was a great one (we did a 4 hour trip). A couple of my girls have tried wake boarding before and were not able to get up. But Cap Ryan knew the tricks to get... More

We had a great time with Captain Ryan. Based on the great trip advisor reviews, we booked a half day with Wake Maui. Ryan was a great teacher - very patient and gave great tips. We went wake boarding, wake surfing, and tubing for 4 hours. It was our 2nd time trying wake boarding and it was easier the 2nd... More

Most fun we had on our whole trip! Good for all ages! Our Captain went beyond the call of duty! Even taught my 52 year old husband how to wake board! Beautiful location too!
