We had an awesome experience on our personally guided kayak/snorkel trip. Our guide Matt was extremely pleasant and attentive as it was my first time snorkeling. Aware of my anxiety, he stayed closed which was very comforting. While snorkeling, we saw colorful fish, turtles and interesting coral. The water was relatively calm which made for easy paddling, granted my husband... More

Our private kayaking adventure with Curtis and Morgan was absolutely FANTASTIC !!! This was a group of 9 friends, all beginner kayakers, and we all felt that it was hands down the best thing we did in Maui all week! I will definitely do it again if I ever get the chance and will recommend it to everyone I know.... More

Our family took an outrigger canoe whale watching tour to avoid the mass boats filled with people trying to grab a spot to view, it was amazing! Tim at Hawaiian paddle sports was so knowledgable about whales, canoeing, and the ocean. You can tell they care deeply about the environment and helping people learn the culture of hawaii.

This was the absolute best experience we have ever had in Hawai'i, and we have been here a few times. We had a private kayak tour to see humpback whales and sea turtles and it was one of the best times I have ever had in my life. Our guide, Curtis, was absolutely spectacular and we could not have asked... More

My boyfriend & I had such an amazing time during our SUP lesson with J'Sun. We were both first-timers, so HPS suggested we do our lesson in Olowalu (just South of Lahaina), where the water is pretty flat. We met J’Sun at 8AM, & he gave us a quick lesson on land before heading out on the water. It took... More

I signed up my three teenagers for a SUP lesson. Josh was an excellent instructor. He was very knowledgeable, patient, and fun with the kids. He emailed pictures of the kids on their boards. That was a nice bonus. Would definitely recommend this company.

Had such a great day kayaking with Josh. If you want whale watch and snorkel with turtles, skip the big boat tours and go with Hawaiin Paddle Sports. So professional, nice, knowledgeable and fun!! The next day Josh sent fabulous pics taken with the underwater camera. Such a great way to remember Maui.

We had a great time as a group of 5 with Lauren and Laurie. The personalized attention with the private lesson was awesome. We met the girls at McKenna beach landing and saw a few turtles. The girls obviously love their job and are passionate about Maui, sea life and the environment. We would highly recommend anyone to use this... More

We had an amazing experience with Tim in the outrigger. We started with instructions on how to most efficiently paddle and some Hawaiian terms (makaukau?). Then we launched and started paddling. The outrigger is wonderful to paddle - fast and efficient, narrow enough for the kids to paddle very easily. Soon we had a whale sighting and Tim steered us... More
