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

My brother (65) and I (60) had a terrific surf lesson with Josh from Hawaiian Paddle Sports on August 19th, 2014. We were up and riding in little time and the training spot had perfect waves. Josh (a former surf pro) was a lot of fun to learn from and hand out with. He was as informative about life on... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to take surf lessons in Maui, but didn't want a large group setting. We chose Hawaiian Paddle Sports based off of the previous positive reviews on Tripadvisor. I can see why this company is rated so highly! We showed up at the beach to meet our instructor Josh. First of all, we were the only... More
