We really enjoyed the outrigger canoe experience! It was great exercise, and such a fun way to watch whales, turtles, and dolphins. Our guides were very knowledgable, and we learned so many new things. We will definitely do it again on our next trip to Maui!

I had a blast with Kapena and the other guides. I was terrified to go out in the outrigger but couldn't resist the opportunity. I am so grateful now as it was unbelievable! The authentic racing canoe is so comfortable and learning about the history of the Hawaiian people helps one appreciate it even more. No motor or noise just... More

My wife and I had a great time with the crew at Maui Paddle sports. We were lucky enough to get close to the whales. Don't be intimidated by the thought of paddling, it was a light workout at best. I would recommend this to everyone.

The Outrigger excursion exceeded my expectations. The Ocean was so serene, Whales were breaching and the crew was so much fun. I would do this again!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this adventure. Our guides (Cynthia and Wahi) were personable and knowledgeable and fun! They got us right out to the whales - in fact, we were pretty much surrounded - close enough to hear the blow. Truly an amazing experience that we'll certainly do again on another visit to Maui.

My paddle was a highlight of my trip to Maui. I have for a very long time wanted to try this soulful sport and I was stoked with my first paddle. The crew were passionate about paddling and loved to compete in local events: pros. They took the time to teach us paddling technique and when we hit the water... More

My husband, two adult children and I went in an outrigger canoe with Cynyhia and Michael. It was one of the highlights of our Maui vacation. The paddling was amazingly fun by itself, but it was enhanced by the information provided by the guides about whales, the geography and Hawaiin lore. We chased the whales into rough water and saw...

Staff was great! Very professional. Lots of info on the Hawaiian culture, the wild life and the history of Maui. They got us right up to the humpbacks! Kids loved it!

I have never seen so many whales! We were fortunate to have perfect weather for our Outrigger trip. We also had the greatest guides that anyone could ask for during the 90 minute journey. The $85 fee was money well spent. I got so excited that I dropped my paddle in the ocean. Will do it again on our next... More

Our 3 grown children, their spouses, and 4 of our grandkids were here with us this year on Maui for Cjristmas and we saw these outrigger canoes and decided it might be fun so I called the number and they were sold out until the kids were scheduled to leave for home. However, the office called one of their guides... More
