Maui Paddle Sports outrigger canoe trip was one of the highlights of our Maui vacation! The father-son crew were terrific. The outing was a perfect blend of water sport activity, history and sightseeing wildlife. On this canoe trip: we saw turtles, family jumped off black rock, good exercise for all, and history along the way! I highly recommend this Maui... More

My husband and I have been going to the Hawaiian Islands for 30 years and have gone on lots of excursions, but paddling the outrigger canoe was by far our favorite excursion. We went for the first time early in our trip and loved it so much we had to do it one more time before our trip ended. The... More

We saw numerous turtles going north from shore towards Napali and a very close whale encounter on the way back with a mother and baby Humpback. The baby dove under our canoe then... More

Was definitely one of the best... More

This was one of the most incredible activities I have ever done - we probably saw 30 mama and baby whales up close and personal. The staff was very interesting - explaining lots of Hawaiian culture and lore, and it was a beautiful day to be on the water. I would HIGHLY recommend this when the whales are active.

I've been paddling with MPS since 2009 - I go EVERY time I'm on Maui. The last 4 visits to Maui, we drove an hour from our resort just to paddle with MPS. We've had a variety of guides over the years and they all have been excellent - friendly, informative, experienced watermen - and most importantly, they really tailor... More

Maui Paddle Sports team were excellent on and off the water. The guides were awesome and the sights were incredible. Well worth the money and a fantastic family memory. Our family of four will be talking about the trip for years to come.
