So you want to find the perfect outing in Maui with a little kayak and snorkeling fun? Like photography? Love to laugh? Then seriously you want to consider Maui Kayaks. I have traveled all over the world and done a lot of cool stuff. For the buck, you get more than your money's worth. Many tours have good guides/hosts, but... More

Have been coming to Maui for the last 15+ years on a regular basis but had never taken a kayak out into the ocean. Today was the day and it was FANTASTIC!! Not only was the weather absolutely perfect and the water was clear, calm, and the ocean life abundant. Thanks to our guide, John, we spent 3-hours in the... More

We were a group of 8 family members and everyone had a great time with many of our group saying that this was the most fun of any of our Maui adventures. John was attentive, informative, knowledgeable and personable. I would highly recommend John and Maui Kayaks. I especially appreciated his attention to some special needs in our group. He... More

We are a family of 6, and John was our tour guide. He was excellent and very informative (and entertaining), and made us feel safe on the entire trip. We swam up close with turtles and saw manta rays! John was excellent and took photos of our trip, so all we had to do was enjoy the day. You will... More

John provided an excellent family experience beyond what I could have imagined. He was professional, knowledgeable and he understood how to make the experience memorable for my whole family. He really emphasized safety while also having a fun experience. He is also a personal photographer and took over 300 photos of our experience for a very reasonable price. I would... More

We were 2 grandparents 2 parents and a 6 year old, our guide John was eceptional, we interacted with whales and snorkeled up close and personal with the turtles. John was very professional and welcoming, he was suitably attentive to the whole group, I cannot recommend him and this tour highly enough.

We had the best day with our guide Cory. We were able to kayak out to a spot where there was a whale and her calf. They were right under us and the calf came up multiple times to say hi. It was one of the coolest experiences ever. After we watched them jumping and playing from a distance we... More

Our family of 4 (mom, dad, and 2 college kids) were in Maui for spring break and wanted a kayak tour that would combine turtle watching, whale watching, kayaking and snorkeling all in one. After looking at the website- all the tours looked amazing but I wasn't clear which one would best fit our wish list. One phone call answered... More

We went on a Whale Watching/snorkel trip with Ryland. He knew right where to go. We saw many whales around Maui but nothing matched the experience of seeing them from a Kayak. This trip was the best thing we did in our 2 week Hawaiian honeymoon. On the snorkel adventure we saw a Monk Seal, turtle and even a reef... More

My family and I had such a great experience with our guided eco-adventure through Maui Kayaks. Seeing the whales from the vantage point of a kayak on the water was certainly breathtaking! My kids were blown away with the snorkel time and seeing/swimming with turtles, rays, tons of fish and actually getting hold an octopus that our guides expertly handled!... More
