This was truly a highlight for my sisters and I!! We were looking out at the ocean from our lanai when two outriggers went by... I said "we are SO doing that!" got the binoculars out, read the side of their canoe and called them up! Two of us were gun-ho, the 3rd had her reservations, but thanks to some... More

We did an outrigger canoe session with Maui Paddle Sports with my family, including 4 kids ages 8-15. We were joined by another family that also had kids of similar age, as well as a couple on their honeymoon. It was a huge highlight of our trip. The MPS crew was exceptional: talented paddlers with lots of experience to share... More

This is the second time we have ventured out with Maui Paddle Sports and both times we have brought home fond memories. This time watching our two grandchildren(ages 10 and 5) enjoying the sights and experiences added to the fun. Our guides kept us in stitches the whole time and we greatly appreciated their knowledge and concern for the environment.... More

Our guides were very knowledgeable (Del Ray) and took us out after a brief instruction. We went to the Turtle reef where we saw about a dozen turtles. It was so exciting to see them come right up to our canoe. I even enjoyed paddling- it was great exercise. The canoe ride was fantastic. I would highly recommend it!!

We are frequent Maui visitors and do LOTS of activities. The wonderfully friendly folks at Maui Paddle Sports provided us with the most rewarding experience we have ever had on the island. The stories, sights, education and aloha were outstanding. We intend to make this a regular/mandatory part of our future visits and plan to keep bringing friends and family.... More

Efficient and fun operation. We were off in no time after a brief instructional. We learned about currents, local fish, and saw a turtle. Great family fun. My son who was resistant at first is ready to go again. Thanks.

I wish I could give them TEN stars. The canoe ride was great, but the guides Jamie and "Cowboy" (Kapenna) were like a live history/culture lesson, providing excellent insight into Hawaiian history, particularly that of Maui itself. Just a great time.

We did the 6-person outrigger canoe ride with Maui Paddle Sports. The ride began on Ka'anapali Beach right by our hotel (Westin Villas) which was convenient for us since it started at 7:30AM. Brian got us signed in, got us water bottles and paddles etc. Then we got a quick paddling instruction from our two guides (I can't remember their... More

First, the people running the show--I mean every single one of them--are so wonderful and friendly! Instructions were easy and fun. Our guides Del Ray and Flex were WONDERFUL and made the excursion like going out with old friends. Second, Make sure you're in the mood for a little bit of a workout and bring your humor! We went around... More

We watched many people in paddle boats from the Maui Paddle Sports. It was a wondrous thing to see all of those paddle boats at once.
