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...

The Kihei Canoe Club will take you on the bay for about 1 1/2 hr in their long canoes. They ask for a donation of $30. This is about the least expensive thing you can do on Maui. It is great fun, and the locals that belong to this club are very warm and friendly. I saw a sea turtle.... More

Every morning we noticed outrigger canoes paddling past our condo and thought "wow! How can we do that?" After making a few calls to different companies that rented beach items with no luck, someone suggested we contacted a canoe club. What a great way to spend the morning! The Kihei Canoe Club offers to take visitors on their Tuesday and... More
