Jason also took us snorkeling. He was very knowledgeable and laidback. He made us feel very comfortable on and in the water! I... More

Loved the experience! My family and I frequently canoe and kayak on lakes and rivers. Outrigger canoeing was a blast and a much different experience than fresh water adventures. Our guide (Tim) did a great job educating us and made the trip very memorable. Both my children (ages 15 and 10) had a great time as well. I deeply appreciate... More

My family and I had a terrific time kayaking with Jay off the coast of Makena and Wilea today! Jay was fun and very knowledgeable. He took us to a reef away from the crowds where the visibility was fabulous and we had the opportunity to "hang out" with a sea turtle and see some beautiful fish. It was really... More

We had a great time with Peter who shared so much information with us about Hawaii, tropical fish, whales, the ocean environment and much more. Even though the weather was difficult he put us onto two snorkeling spots that were loaded with different fish and many green sea turtles. His enthusiasm never flagged, his professionalism kept us happy and safe... More

My wife and I did the south turtle town kayaking tour and it did not disappoint! We liked how the tour was private and was built around what we wanted to do. Our tour guide was John and from the beginning he was very thorough with explaining what we would be doing and what to expect on our tour. He... More

This was the best ever. Laurie our guide should be the ambassador for Maui her knowledge of the was island was outstanding. She took amazing pictures, sent these and the links to all the upcoming events she told us about. I'd book another lesson just to have her tell us more.

Turtle Town kayaking in & of itself is amazing (and easy for a sorta fit 56 yo (my first time) & a fit 13 yo), but to snorkel with Sea Turtles, Manta Rays & loads of colorful fish with a guide (Jay) who is knowledgable, kind, instructive, sincere & who has an obvious love & respect of the ocean/nature was...

Our family had a once and a lifetime experience when we booked a private kayak-whale watching tour with Hawaiian Paddle Sports. Our tour leader, John, was fun, entertaining, and extremely knowledgeable about whales, the ocean and the history of Maui. We will certainly book another tour with Hawaiian Paddle Sports the next time we travel to Maui. Thanks for a... More
