Learning how to surf has always been an interest of mine and so when my family and I came to Maui, we realized that this would be the perfect opportunity to try it out. Having Josh as my instructor for my younger brother and I was incredibly helpful. Josh introduced himself with positive and energetic vibes and he made the... More

HPS and Peter surpassed our expectations with our snorkel and kayak tour. Easily the highlight of our vacation. Family of 5, with little to no experience. Peter was fantastic helping us to relax and teaching us so much about the marine life. We were so glad to have the private tour. During our snorkeling, we saw the other tour groups... More

HPS and Josh for the win!!!! Kayaking / Snorkeling / Surfing Being from landlocked Colorado and avid outdoorsman the Ocean is something that, for me, is a wondrous and unknown place. I found Hawaiian Paddle Sports through a recommendation of a friend and I truly could not be happier with my experience! This was also the first time my girlfriend... More

Our family of 5 (50, 49, 22, 19,16)took a SUP lesson with Peter on 7/16. We booked our lesson for 8 am at Makena Landing hoping to learn on calm waters but Mother Nature had different plans. Even with the rougher waves Peter got us all out on the water and up on our paddle boards. We booked this location... More

First off, their customer service is amazing. Kathi answered all our emails promptly and when one of our flights was delayed, she was able to arrange, with last minute notice, for part of our group to continue with the original date/time and for myself and another friend to take another lesson later on in the week. Josh was equally awesome... More

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
