We booked a surfing lesson for my two sons ages 13 and 10. Will met us at Guardrails, West Maui where the waves are perfect for beginners. Will was patient, thorough and very friendly. He knows how to get along with people. And, he makes you feel secure. Both boys got up after their first try and enjoyed the two... More

It's kind of embarrassing that I live in Honolulu and never learned to SUP until now. What's really embarrassing is that I missed out on so much fun! Had a great time on the water in Olowalu with Curtis, cruising around and chatting. He even procured some turtles for us. I'm not sure SUP in Honolulu will measure up to... More

We had a great experience on a kayak tour with HPS & Curtis last week. I recommend both the company and Curtis. They are passionate about their jobs and the environment and it shows. We truly enjoyed kayaking and snorkeling with three big sea turtles! Curtis also took great pictures of us swimming with turtles and fishes and it was... More

Hawaiian Paddle Sports, thank you for a fantastic snorkeling trip! Our guide Rowdy was amazing – she made sure that we saw lots of beautiful things underwater AND shared her Hawaiian culture with us. It was a treat to learn so much while having fun - I highly recommend this company!

What better thing to do than to kayak, paddle board and snorkel on Maui? As first timers to Maui, we enlisted the help of TripAdvisor and Hawaiian Paddle Sports came up with high recommendations. Well...the experience was one of the best we had. We booked them for the 2 hour private paddle boarding lessons and the 3 hour Kayak and... More

Our instructor was Will who was excellent - very knowledgeable and fun to work with! There were 4 in our group with ages raging from 15 - 50, 2 males/2 females, and everyone thought he did a great job. All were first time surfers and were able to make it up on the boards on the first try!!! Will was... More

Our children are 8 & 10, with limited experience paddle boarding. Peter was great with the kids, helping them understand technique, safety, and what to expect on the water. He was patient and considerate, providing "heads up" and what to look for as we progressed through the tour. Great location on a beautiful bay. HPS' focus on the ocean ecosystem... More

I had a blast at my surf lesson with Will. He not only taught me a lot about surfing but also about protecting the ocean. Thanks for making me feel comfortable and relaxed catching those waves. I have dreamed about surfing since I was a kid and it exceeded my expectations. I am definitely hooked.

What an experience! Our guide Mikey was the best. He was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. This was our first time kayaking and we wished we would have done the kayak to Molokini now that we look back on it. (We’re both fit and just loved the kayak portion). The snorkeling was of course beautiful and in... More
