As you can see by the multitude of other reviews, this team is great. We were with Michael and Kapena. Our family felt cared for and that the experience was truly memorable. While most reviews may be impacted by seeing a whale or dolphins, we did not see any...STILL the connection of the team to the ocean and culture made... More

We experienced the ultimate in outrigger canoeing. We felt like real Hawaiians as we canoed along the coast of Kanaapali. The real treat was about 50 dolphins swimming along side us. Spinner dolphins performing for us. The crew was fantastic and we can't wait to return. It was the highlight of our trip on Nov 18th.

The crew - Mike, Jamie and Cynthia - were amazing. They had so much to share about paddling and Hawaiian history/culture. We were able to see sea turtles and the rare Hawaiian monk seal who has made herself a home just off the back of Black Rock. Mike took my friends to jump off of Black Rock. This is a... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time paddling with Jamie and Mike, with on shore support from Cynthia. We've canoed before, but never with an outrigger, and never on the ocean. They made it safe and fun. We got to see Honu and learn quite a lot about Hawaiian culture and language. Definitely a highlight of our trip!

My wife and I did this tour with Jamie and his son as our guides. Had a blast! First off, the crew is very knowledgable and make it easy to learn and paddle on the outrigger. Next, Jamie was full of useful information about many different experiences which helped make the rest of our trip to Maui that much better... More

A special tour with Jamie, Mike and Cynthia. We saw a Honu turtle up-close, had a long visit with an rare, endangered Monk seal and learned a great deal about the Hawaiian culture and the environment. Friendly - professional - allayed our fears of getting in and and out of the boat. We WILL do it again sometime. Saw may... More

Our paddling trip with Maui Paddle Sports was one of the highlights of our vacation. While the time on the water was excellent, and the "off shore" views of west Maui were as beautiful as expected, what was unexpected was the knowledge imparted by our guides. We learned much about the local culture, weather, history and even some oceanography !... More

We had a great time. We had a younger child in our group so it was a good workout too. The guides were great and gave us great history. We saw sea turtles and the reef. Would recommend this to everyone.

My wife and I had the pleasure of taking a outrigger paddle boat ride with Jaimie & Mike. It was our first time trying this and we had a ball. There is some work involved (you do have to paddle), but the time spent listening to and learning from the guides was well worth any physical exertion. This is a... More

On a recent trip to Maui with my husband, sister and brother-in-law we saw the outriggers from our condo. My foot was in a boot from an injury and I was curtailed from most exercise involving walking/running. Maui Paddle Sports to the rescue! Our guide Michael and his partner Bryson were fantastic! We've been coming to Maui for over 20... More
