We so enjoyed learning from Jay how to SUP. He was very knowledgeable, a good and patient teacher and we appreciated his personal commitment, and that of Hawaiian Paddle Sports, to taking care of our ocean and world. We were not only taught the skills needed to perform this activity but we also were informed the many things the company... More

We had a private tour with Pete, who was very friendly and informative. We saw plenty of fish, turtles, and even a whale and calf (although very far away, but it was already May after all so that was a bonus regardless). I'm a weak swimmer and my girlfriend wasn't very comfortable with snorkeling, but having a guide who's also... More

We did a kayak tour with Magen. It was an amazing experience. Magen was knowledgeable, engaging, and extremely friendly. We have only positive things to say about our morning. Even though we plan to do some of the other adventures on Maui during our next trip, we will definitely do the kayak tour with Hawaiian Paddle Sports again.

Tim took my husband and I out canoe surfing on a four man canoe. We had a great time! Tim is a great guy and a very experienced steers person. We caught lots waves and my husband even surfed on the ama. Next time we are on Maui we will definetly connect with Tim for more fun on the water.

Tim lead a great sufing session on his OC-4 surfing canoe. We launched just south of Ka'anapali in perfect conditions. We caught a ton of rides, some bigger faces, some nice rollers. My wife and I took turns stroking (front seat) into and on to the waves. I even jumped to the Ama and eventually surfed it. Tim hummed the... More

My husband, daughter and I took a private lesson with Laurie on Apr 29 and were so glad that we did this versus a group tour. My husband and I are 67 and had never paddle boarded before. Laurie was a great instructor and very patient. Really enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend this company and Laurie in particular!!

We had a fantastic morning kayak trip with Jay. He was very personable, and made sure we had the exact kayak experience we wanted. The trip was great, and Jay made it even better! Thanks Jay!!

We took our family of 3 out on a 4-man canoe surfing session with Tim. It was a blast! Tim was obviously an expert at his craft, and was able to deliver an exciting and safe experience for everyone. He got tons of amazing pictures and videos of the whole adventure for us with the GoPro. He was also a... More

What an amazing time with Jay! A private tour is the way to go. Jay was not only knowledgable but a lot of fun. The entire experience, from booking right through to saying good bye was amazing. Thanks for such a great experience!
