This company and Will are fantastic! We went on our first surfing lesson and we stood up every single time thanks to Will's enthusiasm and encouragement. Hawaiian Paddle Sports is a great company that created a lifelong memory that we are forever grateful for!

Our kayak trip to Molokini was the most spectacular experience of our 10-days in Maui! Curtis was amazing and offered his expertise, encouragement, and humor. It is clear he loves not only his job and the environment he is blessed to work in, but also the company he works for. Class act. I would HIGHLY recommend the personalized experience only... More

We went out on the outrigger canoe trip in the morning. My wife was very worried about the whole jumping in and launching thing, but made it in okay. She did get a little bruise (she's short, so it was a little harder for her to jump in). I wish that I could remember our guides name as he was... More

We surfed in the morning with Will and had a fantastic time, love how passionate this company and its employees are about the ocean. Will was very cool to hang out with Will and the quiet area near Puamana was great to learn at instead of the crowding in Kihei! I will be using this company again if I return... More

We had a private excursion with Jason as our guide. It was an outstanding event. We highly recommend it and suggest you ask for Jason as your guide he was lots of fun and told us so much history and details about the sea wildlife

We booked a trip on a canoe because we have three small kids 7,6 and 3 and thought canoe would be best and we made a good choice. It was essentially a private trip with our guild Tim who was fantastic with the kids. He was very knowledgeable about paddling and explaining facts about whales and other wildlife. We saw... More

Last week, a friend and I, had the wonderful experience of a 3 hour private kayaking trip with Hawaiian Paddle Sports. We arrived at Makena Landing shortly before 7am and our guide Mikey was waiting for us. During the next three hours we saw numerous whales, snorkelled and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Mikey was informative, professional, friendly and always had our... More

Our family of 4 went on a private kayak whale watching tour with Jason. Turned out to be one of the best mornings of our lives! Calm seas and a beautiful paddle....would have been a neat experience just paddling, but then the whales surfaced. Saw 2 humpbacks, one about 20-30 yards away and you could feel the spray. We chose... More

We took a private trip with Mikey to look for whales. The trip was great. It was perfectly calm and clear so even if we hadn't seen whales it would've been a good trip. So beautiful and peaceful out there. We probably saw 8 whales from a distance. The highlight was having one dive below us and just hang there... More

We had a private kayak whale watching tour with our amazing guide Andrew. (I think all of their kayak watching tours are private.) Andrew took us to a really good spot. He has a radio so he could know when other guides see whales. We were lucky that day. We paddled to our first place where people spotted a group... More
