My wife and I went out from the Westin Kaanapali with Michael and Jamie and had a great experience! The boat was in great condition and the paddling instructions were very helpful. We achieved good speed on the water and saw a lot of the coastline, including rocky cliffs. The excursion was well worth the cost, as Jamie's oral history... More

This company is amazing!!! I was a little apprehensive about getting in a kayak in the ocean, so thought I'd ease into the concept with a canoe ride. It was a great idea and I am so glad the concierge at my hotel booked me right down Ka'anapali Beach with Maui Paddle Sports! I arrived with my mom, who is... More

This is a super fun activity. It's a light workout, the guides keep it fun and relaxed. I saw 7-8 turtles and also jumped off the boat and swam in the ocean. A big kudos to Jamie. He cracks lot of jokes, talks about the islands history and makes the experience enjoyable and value adding. Thanks to him, I feel... More

Our family went for the morning outrigger canoe and we couldn't have asked for a better time. It was the perfect mix of relaxation and activity. Our awesome crew, Michael and Cynthia, took us out to see turtles and jump off of black rock. They also had water for us and the worlds best pineapple, "Maui Gold", out on the... More

The boats were nice, the crew was knowledgeable and fun, hung out with the turtles and were glad we marked it off our bucket list. We will definitely do it again!

We had a great time with Maui paddle sports. The guides were very helpful and informative. Canoe ride from the beach right in front of our hotel was fantastic. Will definitely return.

Just wanted to tell the world what a beautiful bunch of people run Maui Paddle Sports. Amy, at check in was so positive and sweet - she ramped up our excitement before jumping in the boat. Michael, our steersman and guide made the trip. Paddling long the Ka'anapali coast I could feel the mana (power) of the ancient Hawaiians and... More

We had a great time with this outfit. Anyone can do this with little instruction. The views were amazing. We saw turtles close up. The water was clear and warm. It's hard to get back into the canoe, though for this 52 year old. You need more upper body strength than I had. The guide gave me a leg up... More
