Had a fantastic paddle with Molly today! Good long paddle, whales sighted but not very close but still super cool to see. Very clear conditions for snorkelling and had a close encounter with a sea turtle that swam right towards us as if we weren't there!

We had an awesome whale watching kayak trip with Hawaiian Paddle Sports. We did the west shore kayak trip to whale watch and snorkel and it was absolutely amazing. Our guide Curtis was really knowledgeable about the whales and other marine life and he also took amazing pictures for us throughout the trip. His knowledge and professionalism really added to...

During the first week of February, my wife and I had the pleasure of paddling an outrigger canoe with, Jason, our experienced Hawai’ian Paddle Sports guide, and another couple out onto the calm, blue waters of the Pacific for some close encounters with humpback whales, including a mother, her young calf, and at least one singing male whose song was...

Our small crew of paddlers consisted of a few people with kayak experience and some total newbies. J'sun quickly taught us the basics of outrigger paddling and safety as well as a good dose of Hawaiian culture and humpback whale biology. That was all before we quickly got on the water! Paddling was easy yet our canoe moved quickly with... More

My husband and I took his 80+ years old parents on the outrigger canoe whale watching trip. It was evident that our guide Jason loves and respects the ocean and the whales. He explained how we would paddle as a group, practiced with us and made sure everyone was comfortable. He was conscientious and respectful of our elderly parents. We... More

We booked a SUP trip after waiting to arrive in Maui to check best day according to weather. Picked the perfect day. Met our guide Laurie well before our scheduled time and got right into the lesson, tips and tricks. The first 10, 15 minutes were a bit shaky but with the expert advice we were reasonably comfortable and spending... More

Husband and I decided to try kayaking and snorkeling for the first time. We were a little anxious about doing it in the Pacific and let the instructors know about that. They assured us that we would be just fine. One of them worked selflessly to get our kayak in and then out of the ocean at the end of... More

My wife, mother-in-law, and I had never been stand up paddle boarding before (let alone in the ocean) so I thought we would try a guided lesson type for our first time to ensure that we knew what we were doing. Based on TripAdvisor reviews I decided on Hawaiian Paddle Sports and was hoping we would get Laurie as our... More

We booked an outrigger canoe whale watching tour and were not disappointed! It was such a unique way to be out on the water. J'sun our guide was very kind and informative and did a really great job of making sure we were comfortable and enjoying the experience. Mahalo nui loa for the incredible adventure!

My husband and I and two friends went today and had an amazing experience. We had no idea what to expect but knew we didn't want to do the same ole boat whale watching tour. We kayaked out thru the waves, very cool and our awesome guide Jesse helped the entire way making it much easier than I expected. Right... More
