I happened upon this club as I was walking the beach one morning. A handful of people were launching canoes and I asked if they took "tourists". They immediately said they had room in the canoe and that I should join them!! What fun! We paddled out looking for humpback whales as our leader chanted a whaling call in Hawaiian.... More

Aloha! Maui Canoe Club was fabulous! We met family here that are locals and they all had a spectacular time the views were perfect, even saw a turtle! The guide was helpful and fun! We have also paddled with Kihei Canoe Club and loved that too!

Great morning row with the fabulous Kihei Canoe Club. The members were very welcoming & patient. The canoes were well maintained & the ride quite scenic. We were lucky enough to see Sea turtles along with the beautiful reefs.

Have no clue what happened to the previous reviewer, but this is a great experience and not for the meek and unadventurous. The real deal for only a 30.00 donation to the all-volunteer club. We went 2 weeks in row and the second trip is free or a small donation. Be prepared to paddle hard and follow instructions. They don't... More

Sorry, but they really blew it on our visit. Very disorganized operation, granted it's a club, but they are taking $30.00 a person to go out for 30-40 minutes and paddle, so the expectations while tempered and given the benefit of the doubt were still far from expectations. The lead organizer is pretty gruff, admonished one of our group for... More

We were told by a local that this was a picturesque place for photos, especially at sunset. So we went up there and got some great shots with the canoes/beach/palm trees,etc. Didn't get to go paddling unfortunately but it's on my list for the next time there.

If you have never experienced paddling in an outrigger canoe - this is a must, easy and truly enjoyable activity. You will learn about the history of the sport and be accompanied by extremely experienced paddlers. Many stops along the way to enjoy the scenery and possible whale, turtle and other sea life. A must do! The $30.00 charge goes... More

No better way to start the morning. Great group of people who can tell just about anything regarding the Island. I have balance problems and have difficulty jumping in the boat but once I am in can paddle just fine. The boat captain makes sure I am taken care of and sitting before we head out. So Don't be afraid... More

On Tuesdays and Thursdays the club offers outrigger canoe rides for a $30 (tax deduct able) which supports youth canoeing as a sport. Sign in @ 7am- on first come 1st serve basis! We all thought of it as a unique way to enjoy this beautiful island! History is shared and reasonably long ride provided will long be remembered as... More

I live on Maui part-time and this was my first experience in an outrigger canoe with the KCC - I'll go again! The members are warm and enthusiastic instructors and seeing Maui from an ocean perspective in the calm morning waters is lovely - we did not happen to see turtles on our trip, but it is possible to see...
