Matt gave my wife and I an awesome tour and SUP lesson! Started off with some basic lessons on land then it was off to the water. Once we were up and moving Matt took us by a turtle cleaning station and we were able to paddle with the turtles. Matt also had a Gopro and took photos of us... More

We took a SUP lesson/tour from Matt. It was our first time to do SUP. Matt gave us some tips/training on land. Once we were all in the water, he walked us through the process of standing up on the board. We were both able to stand up and for the most part learned to stay up. I had always... More

We had Matt as our guide - he was entertaining, informative and very personable. Loved spending the morning with Matt, hearing him talk all things Maui, especially the sea life. We got to swim with... More

Thanks to Curtis for an amazing experience. Your knowledge for sea life and passion for the water are incredible. Your fish like habits are rather unique and the photography was just amazing. Our gopro photos don't compare. Brilliant lessons, service and photography from a sustainable company.

I was lucky enough to accompany my family on an outrigger/snorkel excursion with our skilled and attentive guide, Angel. She spent time educating us abt the sealife we would probably encounter, abt being aware of the ecological area we were entering and abt safety and the outrigger itself. Then, off we went ! The water is amazing, the sealife all... More

Laurie was a great instructor and so much fun to be with out on the water! I'm not new to SUP but this was my husband's first time and as he says "She was the best and got me over my fear of the ocean." We had a great time even though we encountered some morning drizzle. The best part... More

Laurie was an excellent tour guide who took me on a paddleboarding tour that was absolutely breathtaking. Delighted I didn't have to worry about capturing the moments, as she came prepared with a GoPro camera.I was excited that we had a handful of Honu appearances! Hawaiian Paddle Sports eliminates the commercialization of doing activities, so I'm happy I found them... More

Our family of four (kids ages 9 & 12) did a morning of snorkeling and kayaking, as well as a surf lesson with Josh. Both experiences were phenomenal. Before we snorkeled, he informed us about the various marine organisms we would encounter and educated us about caring for the ocean and the reef. Awesome! He certainly had his work cut... More
