While in Maui, we wanted to snorkel but do something a little different than the typical catamarn/snorkel trip. We (2 adults, 2 teens) ended up choosing the Lahaina Snorkel and Kayak trip- and loved every minute of it! The views from the shore are amazing. And the snorkeling- fantastic! We couldn't get enough of the sea turtles all around us (our guide, Mark, did a great job finding the right spot). We saw tons of fish, a couple of reef sharks and, most excitingly, two monk seals came and joined us.

The guys at Maui Kayak were easy to work with and a lot of fun. Highly recommend!

We did a 3 hour kayak and snorkel tour with Maui Kayaks at Makena Landing. It was a beautiful day and an amazing experience! Our guide John S was fantastic and made the morning that much more fun! His storytelling of the ocean kept us intrigued and he made sure everyone felt comfortable kayaking and snorkeling. We would definitely do this again on a return trip!

What an amazing morning and experience with John.
Not only did we get to see whales and have a wonderful snorkel experience with turtles and marine life, but John was friendly, funny, super knowledgeable and great to be around.
The trip was so amazing, we are planning on returning to Maui next February and do the kayak trip all over again with more family members.
Thank You John for making this trip to the islands the best we have ever had!

SCAM ARTISTS! This business took over $300 from me. After paying the money, they ceased contact, refusing to respond to multiple email, phone calls, and text messages. I believe it is the owner, Paul, who is responsible. Don't do business with them unless you want to be scammed.

Carlos was an awesome guide..we were nervous about how to get back in the kayak after snorkeling . It was no problem with his help and he made us feel safe and comfortable! Knowledgable in where best snorkeling was to see turtles...he took great pictures for a really good price! Amazing experience! Highly recommend this tour

My husband and I were first time kayakers, so a little apprehensive. Our guide , “Tree”
Made us feel very comfortable and we had no problems at all. It was beautiful being out on the ocean and we got to see some sea turtles! My only complaint is that the two hour tour did not last two hours it was more like an hour and a half. I guess I should’ve asked why it was being cut short. Maybe the Ocean was going to be picking up in waves and it was a safety issue? I.e. really don’t know but it was so much fun I would’ve liked to have had my full two hours

Did the echo tandem kayak/snorkel tour in Lahaina. Our guid Benji was a really nice dude very passionate about the reef and the culture of the island. The vibe was great, relaxed, and full of information. Saw Green turtles, black fin reef sharks, white tip reef sharks, lots of fish! He also took us out to the open water 100 feet deep and let us experience the vast ocean which I have never done. This was my wife’s favorite excursion of the trip and I highly recommend 10/10 almost did it again that week! Will be coming back next Maui trip. All that said it was only $90.

We booked a trip with Maui Kayaks to paddle along the shores of Maui. Brian was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and friendly. My wife had never kayaked before and this was my second time, the first being 10 years ago when I was way younger and fit. Saw monk seals and turtles!

We had a great time with Brian and the group and highly recommend this company.

We booked the Lahaina Paddle tour. Having recently had an unfortunate kayaking experience we were reassured by our tour guide Lars who safely accompanied us into the calm ocean. The tour was tailored to our requirements & Lars was super friendly & competent.

Andreas was our guide and he was full of energy and excited for all of us to experience kayaking and snorkeling. He made sure we all followed the safety rules while having lots of fun. We saw plenty of turtles and dolphins. We had a blast and will definitely be doing this again.
