Had a wonderful time on the Honolua Bay Outrigger Tour with our guide Tim. It was a great mixture of exercise, culture and discovery. I'd definitely recommend HPS to anyone visiting Maui looking for some fun with a personalized touch. Would absolutely take another tour the next time visiting the island!

We are not good swimmers at all but enjoyed our SUP tour at Makena Landing. Our instructor (Lorie, I believe) is very patient and makes everything easy and fun. We saw more than 5 turtles that morning and being there early gave us an edge over people who paddled there on kayaks. SUP has little to do with swimming and... More

We were there in late June 2014 for a kayak tour of Kapula Bay and we saw a bunch of spinner dolphins. A dream come true. Josh is an expert in the water industry and you will be in good hands. He can also teach you how to surf. Get uout there and have some fun.

Our family had a fantastic time snorkeling with Angel as our guide on the South Maui canoe trip. From the beginning of the trip, Angel made our family of 5 feel comfortable. We have 3 young children (9, 7 and 3). Even though our 3 year old could not swim, Angel helped us find a way for him to try... More

Tim and the staff at Hawaiian Paddle Sports have taken us on kayaks in January to see baby whales taking their first breaths and on outrigger trips where teamwork is the key to a great morning workout. Thier knowledge of Polynesian culture, the plight of the Hawaiians, the geography of Maui as it relates to crops, watershed, etc. and the... More

I would definitely recommend this to friends. I would have liked to kayak a little longer but the scuba diving was well worth it and our guide Angel was incredibly knowledgeable and informative about the wildlife, fish, local surroundings and culture. The smaller groups also make for a more personable experience.

Had a great time with Tim, saw lots of sea turtles and fish while learning a little more about the hawaiian culture. Our teenagers would do it again too - that always says a lot!

Can't say enough about this experience. Cynthia and Barry were our guides on the trip and they did an outstanding job of not only guiding us through the technical aspects of being a team member in a canoe, but also showing us some awesome honu, (Barry knew just where they would be feeding) and details on the landscape that we...
