This was our first time with this company I booked from the Mainland Nebraska. When we arrived we were given instructions by our guide he was a very proud instructor . He wanted us to understand our responsibility to the ocean and it's sea animals, also that this company is a green company. He also made sure we understood how... More

I have traveled to maui on 4 different vacations. Each time we have booked a private kyak trip twice and an outrigger trip 2 times as well. Each time we walk away feeling blown away from the culture that we have been taught not to mention the whales and the sea turtles! The professionalism that is demonstrated by not only... More

Whale watching with HawaiianPaddle was beyond watching whales frolic off Makena Beach. It was a cultural introduction to Maui Nui (Kahoolawe, Maui, Lana'i and Moloka'i). Our guide, Tim made certain that we understood the company's responsibility for sharing the cultural insights, as well as, the educational portion of whale migration, birthing, etc. We were fortunate to share the ocean with...

My boyfriend and I went on a outrigger trip last year with hawaiian paddle sports and it could have not have gone any better. We got to the beach early to make sure we knew where we were going. When we got there Kepa, our guide, was already there and introduced himself. Kepa was amazing throughout the whole trip! Full... More

Tim brought us out after thoroughly explaining how to properly kayak, hold oars etc. Then we went over safety and then the dos and dont's on the water. We had a perfect day- Tim knew exactly where to position us safely and where we would get the best view point. We had fresh water and snacks provided. Saw some amazing... More

We had an awesome morning learning to paddleboard with Kathi. She let us set the pace, and took us up the coastline. We paddled very close to some turtles, and she got some great pictures of us on our boards with turtles nearby. It was great that it was just the the two of us with her. The photo package... More

Peter is the kindest, most informative guide I have ever come across. The kayak/snorkel tour lasted 3 hours and went from kayaking so close to the humpbacks that you could hear their "blow", and ended with snorkeling alongside green turtles so closely that you could reach out and touch them if it weren't illegal. And the pictures Peter took are... More

We had a blast on the Molokini Challenge! Curtis was very knowledgeable, professional, and fun to be with out on the water. The trip included a long, challenging kayak from Makena Landing to Molokini Crater, a short snorkel in the crater, and several whale sightings throughout the morning. A highlight of our trip to Maui! Highly recommended to anyone who... More

Our family went on a January 2 outrigger canoe whale watching tour with Tim as our guide and had a fantastic experience! Our daughters (ages 9 and 6) were able to participate and had a wonderful time! We saw so many whales...it was nearly constant whale activity throughout the tour. The canoeing was not difficult and most anyone could do... More

My husband and I booked a SUP lesson with Hawaiian Paddle Sports and were not disappointed! We had only been on paddle boards in lakes and never in the ocean so we decided that having a guide or someone who knew what they were doing would be a good idea. We were glad we did because Tim, our guide, had... More

Aloha, Mahalo for joining us on a Stand Up Paddle lesson. It is a good idea to go out with a guide who is familiar with ocean conditions and the area. Even those who are experienced can learn new things. Our guides are the best. They love sharing their knowledge and talent with others. It is important to us that... More
