I can see why they are no. 1. Laurie, our guide, was very organized and very nice. She loves what she does and that comes through in her teaching. She was patient and cooperative. If we go back next spring to Whale Watch this will be our company of choice and we will ask for Laurie.

We had a great kayaking tour with Peter. We got to the launch site about 10 minutes early and Peter was already set up and ready to go. I went with two others who had never kayaked before, and Peter was great with giving clear instructions and making everyone feel safe. Peter was very knowledgeable about marine life and Hawaii...

While on our honeymoon on Maui, my wife and I did a SUP lesson with HPS at Kapalua Bay beach and it was one of the favorite things we did on the island! Laurie met us in the parking lot and got us all squared away. Dont let her mainland roots throw you, she was an awesome guide and immediately... More

We had a great morning kayaking/snorkelling with Peter who was very kind and patient with our 5yo who was quite anxious about snorkelling. We saw heaps of turtles and fish and the tour was certainly the highlight of our time in Maui.

My husband and I booked the sea kayak coastal tour through the Ritz Carlton Ambassadors of the Environment during our honeymoon. It was very convenient that we didn't have to drive anywhere from the hotel. We met right at the D.T. Fleming's beach which is within the Ritz Carlton property. Our guide Curtis is super AWESOME!!!! He started explaining all... More

What a great experience! Peter was a fantastic guide for our south Maui tour. We were literally the only people in the water and were surrounded by the very friendly sea turtles at one point. Peter knows so much about kayaking, the water, the sea creatures and Hawaii in general. Hawaiian Paddle Sports seems like a great, responsible company. Peter... More

Excellent experience! For one price, we got to do 2 great excursions (kayaking and snorkeling). Plus our guide, Curtis, took amazing photos of our whole day, providing us with all the images as a souvenir of an awesome day! Would highly recommend this company and our knowledgable guide, Curtis, to anyone visiting Maui!
