We had an outstanding time and experience. We were lucky enough to see turtles but the best was a pod of bottle spinner dolphins. We paddled and they surrounding our canoes, an awesome experience. The guides spirit and love of the island was infectious they provided us with so much info, laughs and recommendations. I wished I recalled their names... More

We signed up for this outrigger canoe adventure via our hotel concierge. We weren't sure what to expect but I am so glad we booked this. We had a great morning out on the water. We learned (and did our best) to canoe on a genuine outrigger! Our guides, Cynthia and I believe Kapena were awesome! They taught us so... More

Remarkable true local Maui experience!!! We learned outrigger techniques, oceanography,language & cultural heritage and swam in crystal clear waters teeming with marine life in a genuine racing Outrigger canoe!! Our guides, Kapena & Mike are accomplished outriggers with great local knowledge and ably supported by Amy the administrator on shore. Our photos were even sent on the same day !!MAHALO!!!!

We had the best time ever. The best excursion by far. The whole crew was awesome. Wahi, Jason and Cynthia are the greatest. Mahalo guys. If you want the experience of a lifetime, go with Maui Paddle Sports. Ben & Deedee from California

One of my favorite things to do on Maui.This was my 4th time going out with Jamie and the gang. You get to be on the ocean in the calm of the morning when the views are the best. They share their Hawaiian history, culture and love of the ocean with you. What a great way to get in an... More

Fantastic water adventure! Our guides were great and made us feel very comfortable while padding. Their knowledge and shared information about local sea life and cultural history was very enlightening. We learned a lot of Hawaiian words and phrases, of which I can't remember right now. We saw tons of turtles who swam right up to our canoe and hung... More

What a day! Guides, Jason and can't begin pronounce or spell other guides name, we're awesome! They shared a wealth of information with us about paddling, the islands and the Hawaiian culture. They went above and beyond. Jumping in the water with my camera to get underwater photos of the dolphins when I didn't want to jump in. We totally... More

We took a trip in an Outrigger Canoe with Maui Paddle Sports. They have canoes onsite at our timeshare, the Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas, so we decided to give it a try. We had a 1-1/2 hour trip along Ka'anapali Beach with two experienced outrigger canoe guides. Not only did we get to paddle the canoe, we got a... More

I paddled on September 23, 2014. It's good to book a reservation ahead of time. I called the afternoon the day before and was able to grab a seat on the 8am tour. The staff was friendly. There is a brief (approximately 15 minutes) dry land review of how to hold the oar and paddle. Then we helped launch the... More
