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

Amazing time last week with Maui Paddle Sports on the outrigger canoe! Enjoyed the hearing all the history of canoeing on Maui. The ride was amazing and a great workout! Would recommend them to anyone interested. Two thumbs up!

July 16, 2014 Our family of 4 had a great time with Jason and Wahai, our guides - very friendly and made the trip fun. We traversed the coastline and ended up at black rock. We watched guests from the hotels jump from black rock, about 20' high. After watching for 10 minutes my 50 year old body and 16... More

On July 12, 2014, my family scattered the ashes of our mother at Black Rock, Kaanapali Beach. It was a truly special and wonderful experience thanks to Maui Paddle Sports. Jamie and his son took 4 of us out by canoe. I will never forget how wonderful Jayme was in creating the right atmosphere for such a task. The company... More

On the Fourth of July we celebrated the most authentic Hawaiian way... An outrigger canoe ride. What a great time with Reese and Cynthia. My two teenagers had a great time and thank you Cynthia for taking them up Black Rock to jump into the water.

A perfect morning! The weather was wonderful, the ocean was calm, the sea life was active, and our guide Jamie was amazing on Hawaiian history. This activity is recommended for all and I look forward to getting back into the outrigger again on my next trip to Maui!

Outrigger canoe ride along the Kaanapali shore with the wife and daughter. Guides Reese and Cynthia were great. Learned a lot, (including the reasons why only one outrigger instead of two!), saw a bunch of turtles. Lots of interesting history and information about the sacred black rock area; Cynthia even got our daughter to go cliff diving! Can't wait to... More

This company and its crew are great! We are repeat customers because we have so much fun with them. They are knowledgeable, funny, helpful, kind, and not to mention in great shape! Out rigging with them is a must if you are doing water actives on Maui!

Outrigger canoe ride along the shore with the wife and two young kids. Everyone had a great time thanks to our guides Jamie and Kapena. Both were informative, friendly, and funny. My kids loved seeing all the turtles and feeding the fish some pineapple. Who knew they ate that. Swimming along black rock and hearing the history of the point... More

Our instructor, Jason, was an excellent teacher. He gave us enough information to get us going and as we got better he added very helpful hints and encouragement. SUP was not as easy as it looks. We had a two hour lesson which included an unexpected visit from over 8 turtles. The weather was perfect and we loved the experience.... More
