Having never snorkeled Coral Gardens near Lahaina, we chose this trip. Our guide Jason was very friendly & easy going. Whale season was not in full swing, but Jason gave us the option to look for whales, & we went with it. With persistence & knowledge of whale behavior, Jason led us right on top of a male singing his... More

This was our first time trying paddle boarding and we couldn't have been luckier with our instructor Laurie!! She was so knowledgeable, educating us not only on paddle boarding but the area water and ocean life. All four of us got up on the first time, though I shortly fell off while everyone else remained dry the whole time, lol!!... More

A private kayak outing was the perfect choice for us on our second full day in Maui. Though we had experience kayaking, we've never been very good in tandem. Matt offered some brief advice before we set out and it seemed to stick with my partner, because we were in sync all day. Prior to leaving shore, he also fluently... More

Highly recommend the stand up paddle board (SUP) lessons with Hawaiian Paddle Sports! I always thought SUP looked fun, but have never been surfing and don't generally count balance or coordination among my strengths so I wasn't sure what to expect. Curtis was really great at explaining how to get started from square one, giving some pointers to help me... More

We've taken hundreds of tours and this was definitely our most favorite! Our guide was so knowledge, skilled and courteous. He knew so much about the wildlife, and also knew a lot about the island's history. The tour was eco friendly and you can tell the company genuinely care about the environment. The private tour was great and our guide... More

My wife and I had never been paddle boarding before so we thought a private lesson would be the way to go. Our guide, Jesse, was very knowledgable and friendly. The conditions were beautiful and we had a great time enjoying the scenery and talking with Jesse about everything local. Recommended, although not cheap!

This was an amazing tour, lots of fun. We were a group of 4 (2 couples) and really enjoyed that it was just us and Jason, our guide. Jason was very knowledgeable and lots of fun. The scenery was beautiful - nothing beats being out on the ocean in the morning when the water's calm and there's no one else... More

Curtis, our guide, was very knowledgeable of the area. My wife was new to snorkeling and he made her feel very comfortable and she had a great time. We were able to experience seeing many turtles as well as many species of reef fish. The whole kayak experience was at our pace and Curtis took remarkable photos both above and... More

Kayak / snorkel tour was amazing. Had a private tour for wife and me with guide Matt and it was awesome. Matt was great as he was super knowledgeable and really made it an exceptional experience. Would absolutely recommend this over any of the big boat snorkel tours. Having free pictures taken by Matt was a great bonus as well.... More

My husband and I booked last minute for a next day adventure, and also our last day on Maui. Andrew was an excellent ocean host, he was knowledgable, conscientious, polite, funny, basically an excellent guide! His enthusiasm and passion for the ocean, the company and the marine life was very evident and made for a great day for us. We... More
