Our family of 4 went on the 2 1/2 hour Kayaking/Snorkeling adventure out of Makena Landing in Wailea this week. We had an amazing time and saw many turtles and beautiful fish! What made it extra special was our guide, Garrett! He was a great instructor, very informative, extremely pleasant and helpful and had a good sense of humor. We... More

Small group with a more personalised tour. Our guide was a wealth of information with regards to the islands and their history. Also very respectful to both marine life & our surrounds. The best kayak tour in Maui. Further my husband lost his Fitbit & the tour guide returned it to him. Five star service!

Went on an early morning trip with our guide Steve and had a fantastic time exploring beautiful Maui. Extremely professional and informative, Steve was quick to point out all the interesting features of the landscape and the many creatures below, introducing us to a variety of reef fish, an eel, an octopus, several large turtles and other crustaceans. He even... More

Our kayaking adventure with South Pacific was really amazing. Garret was our very experienced tour guide. This was my first time going out kayaking in the ocean and with Garret's detailed instruction and help it was a great experience. We saw many whales, and also had a baby and mother whale come to check us out, which was an experience... More

We went out with Dan to kayak, whale watch, and snorkel. Dan was awesome, friendly, knowledgeable, and strived to customize our trip to fit our preferences. The snorkeling was great and this was the best whale watching experience we have ever had. We will definitely book again with this company. Thanks Dan!!!

The concierge at my hotel booked this kayak trip for me on a day when I was stuck at the last minute with nothing else. The guide was very nice and friendly, but I downgrade the experience to two stars because I strongly disapprove of molesting the fauna: Several times he dove down and picked up sea urchins or other...

As I mentioned in my review of Maui Kayaks, South Pacific Kayaks came in and saved the day when Maui Kayaks cancelled on us at the last minute. We were immediately greeted by Rusty upon arrival, who was very friendly and helpful. The entire group ended up just being the four of us that had arrived together (there were another... More

First off - a huge thank you to Dan for making our first ocean kayaking experience so memorable!! We showed up at the designated spot, both excited and nervous ... My husband has a phobia about being in water where he couldn't touch bottom and I am sometimes claustrophobic, but Dan did everything possible to put us at ease. It... More
