Thanks to Don for being so patient with our 7 year old, we had an amazing first snorkel with him and he can't stop talking about the Manta Rays he saw!!

Donnie and Dave were great hosts on an intimate paddle/sail out to see more humpbacks and then some snorkeling with turtles.

We've sailed on the Hina many times over the past few years & it's our must-do every year. Sage was out at sea this year, but Donnie & Nathan took us on great trips (we went twice this year). Great whale watching, terrific guys sailing the canoe & sharing stories.

We went out with Doug and Nathan this morning on their canoe outrigger! Unbelievable service and aloha spirit! These two guys paddled out for us as we enjoyed the wailea / makena sights and set anchored - that's when our adventure began! We didnt paddle this time and kicked back to enjoy our time in th e water. Where do... More

I booked this based on a T.A. Review. We were not disappointed. Just the 2 of us and our paddlers. We saw Sea Turtles. Snorkelled and relaxed. Great way to spend 2 hours in Wailea.

Perfect for adventurers and non-adventurers to do together... I have lived on Maui for several years and this is the Tour that I take EVERY guest that visits me on! We sail, snorkel... have seen countless whales and turtles... and it is quiet. Just the wind and the ocean... No motors or diesel fuel. The tours are small and intimate... More

We really enjoyed our sailing canoe and snorkeling trip around Wailea. It was neat to learn more about the Hawaiian sailing canoes and how they were used. Sage was a great guide and took pictures throughout the trip, which was nice because we didn't have a waterproof camera that we could take with us. Highly recommend booking a trip with... More

We had a nice time sailing around the Wailea area of Maui. It was fun to get out on the open ocean and see how ancient Hawaiians sailed around the islands. The sea was choppy the day we went and the snorkeling was a little cloudy, but we had a great time anyway.

Just completed a trip with Maui Sailing Canoe. This is our second time to sail with them, the last about 3 years ago. Each time has been a wonderful experience. You have the opportunity to snorkel or just sit back and relax as the sailing canoe takes your small group on a trip. Well worth the price. Depending on the... More

This adventure was a highlight of our trip. We loved stepping on the canoe right from the beach and sailing out on a beautiful day. Sage made the experience especially memorable by snorkeling with us and pointing out things we wouldn't otherwise have seen. He even found an octopus that he brought up from the sea floor for me to... More
