Had a FANTASTIC time learning the history, magic and application of the paddle with Jason and Mike. Our over 5 mile trip included paddling over the reef north of Lahaina, swimming with the sea turtles, turning the paddles into sails and many interesting lessons on the history of the canoe and its use by the ancient Hawaiians. This is a... More

Took the family and friends on a outrigger canoe trip with Maui Paddle Sports last week and it was fantastic!! Took the canoe to the north and went swimming with sea turtles, it was truly incredible. Mike, Jamie and crew were just awesome and I would HIGHLY recommend going out with MPS. A MUST DO!

The best guides (Pakena was one) , great exercise, and tons of fun! We were a group of 9, and were in 2 outrigger cameos. After learning how to work together as a team, we had fun out on the water! Our guides had great stories to share of the Hawaiian culture, and just had fun with our extended family... More

Fantastic activity. Fun for any level of experience of canoeing. Great views of fish, Honu ( turtles ). Guides experts on Hawaiian culture, outrigger competition, and so much more. Want to do it again, but during whale watching season in winter time.

Mike and Jason were great guides on our OC6. Fun to be with on the water. My husband and I enjoyed being on the water and learning what it is like to be in an outrigger canoe. Good times!

We enjoyed the whole experience from the introduction to beaching the outrigger. Everyone was very nice and made the whole experience very entertaining. We were able to see multiple sea turtles and shades of water that isn't visible from land. It was our last adventure on Maui but it will be our first when we return! Mahalo for a great... More

My family of four (including two kids 6 & 7) had a fantastic time! It was a perfect balance of work and relaxation. Our two guides Vae and Bryson were awesome. Their expertise and love for the ocean was evident in our experience. We paddled, enjoyed the scenery, saw a turtle and when we arrived to Black Rock....Vae showed us... More

Took three generations of men on a classic Hawaiian outrigger canoe experience. Since we were staying at the Sheraton and Black Rock already, our tour guide Jaime took us paddling to the best spots for turtles. Not only did we see a good number of sea turtles, we got great information on local fishing, hunting, canoe racing and Hawaiian culture... More

This was FANTASTIC. We had a great time, with Jamie & Wahi. Saw a turtle and a barracuda. Jamie told us about life on Hawai'i and their culture. It was all very interesting. Can't wait to do it again. Thanks Jamie & Wahi, you are the BEST......
