My three boys and I had an awesome time aboard Captain Ryan’s beautiful new boat built to have fun on the water. Everyone we dealt with at Wake Maui were top notch.

We spent a couple hours wake surfing and Captain Ryan got all four of us up on the first try. Thrilling rides and so much fun.

Next the Captain took us to a great snorkeling spot where we saw lots of turtles, fish, coral and Charlie the local shark. I liked the “turtle wash” where the turtles float by while being cleaned by the fish.

From there Captain Ryan headed back to home base and gave my three boys a high speed thrill ride on the raft followed by a leisurely cruise back with music blasting and the boys on the raft.

Wake Maui and Captain Ryan were voted by my team “By Far” the best excursion of our entire Maui vacation and I can’t recommend it enough. We will definitely be back to wake surf with Capt. Ryan and Wake Maui next time we’re back in Maui.

Go big and book some time on the water to experience wake surfing, snorkeling and tubing with the best. You will not regret it.

Great experience! Went wake surfing and tubing with the whole family and had a excellent time! Ryan is a great guide and gives perfect instructions and tips to help with anything throughout the trip. It was so good we had to book twice! Highly recommend if your looking for stunning views and a great time wake surfing or tubing.

Great experience! Went snorkeling, tubing and wake surfing. Ryan did a great job making sure everyone had fun, including teaching kids how to wake surf for the first time. Very patient and flexible. Great way to get out on the water.

We had such a great time with Ryan wake surfing and tubing that we booked a second three hour session! We had previously tried wake surfing with another company with no success, but Ryan is an absolutely excellent instructor with significant patience. The whole family (11 and 13 year old kids) was able to wake surf within two tries. We were even lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins on both days . This is a must do if you are visiting Maui.

Awesome experience for the family. We could not get the kids out of the water :) really something special to hear their whooping and hollering behind the boat, and then the excitement swimming with the turtles. Boat is super cool too. Will repeat on our next trip for sure. Very highly recommend.

WOW!!! Thanks Ryan for a perfect day! We had an amazing time on the water wakesurfing, swimming in the deep blue and exploring the beautiful Ka'anapali coast. Ryan is a great captain, fun, patient and full of local knowledge. The highlight of the day had to have been the whale breaching within 25 yards of the boat. Just a surreal experience! Thanks Ryan and we'll see you again soon!

Had an absolute blast! Ryan is a great captain and instructor, we had both experienced surfers and first timers and Ryan got everyone up and surfing! Highly recommend, we’ll definitely be back out on the water with Wake Maui.

OMG….I cannot say enough about Capt. Jack and the amazing experience we had on this excursion! Not only was the wake board and tubing exhilarating but we also saw multiple dolphins on our tour. It was breathtakingly magical to be so close to the dolphins. Definitely will be booking again for next summer.
Captain Jack, thank you!!!
We’ll see you next August!

The best experience of our vacation! Spent a few hours touring the coast, listening to our captain Ryan fill us in on all awesome things Maui and snorkeling with the turtles. We had the freedom to cruise wherever and it was relaxing and fun. Next time we’re on the island we will for sure be booking this again!!

The four of us loved our private cruise with Captain Ryan. We took a deep blue water dip in the ocean and a humpback whale appeared! Also got to snorkel with sea turtles! The boat ride itself was gorgeous; Ryan shared great information about both the ocean and the Hawaiian islands. Very reasonable cost and much more enjoyable than a packed tour boat. Highly recommend!
