What an amazing experience for our family! Don’t pass up the opportunity to let the wonderful crew from Ali’i Maui Outrigger Canoes take your family out on an unforgettable adventure. From the moment we spoke to Wahi over the phone, he was friendly, accommodating, and put a nervous mama at ease. Over busy spring break, he was able to get our family of 4 a time slot the next day. Being able to handle the canoes and oars was such an honor. We could not have asked for better guides in Wahi and Sarah. Along the way, Wahi taught us names for the various marine life we were seeing, kept encouraging us as we paddled, and just had a contagious spirit and zest for life. When our 7 year old was too cold to stay in the water snorkeling, Sarah caringly entertained her by making a snowman out of sand up on the beach. Not only did we see turtles, we spotted a group of spinner dolphins! Wahi and Sarah led us paddling to get a closer look. What a rush! It was more than we could have asked for. Back on shore, we had the privilege of meeting Wahi’s father. He was kind enough to meet us the next day so we could purchase Ali’i merchandise. Mahalo to all!

We had a group of 4 adults who did an outrigger trip with Ali’i Maui from the Westin Villas. It was definitely one of our top experiences from our Maui trip. I emailed to secure the booking and Uncle Jamie was good about getting back to me. They called to collect payment the day before the trip.

We booked a 9:30 trip. There was a group of two outriggers that went out at 8, and they returned promptly by 9:30 for our trip. We did a very brief tutorial on how to paddle then we were in the water.

It was just the four of us with two guides.The two guides with us and all the other employees were so friendly from start to finish. They make you feel part of the family. We were a little nervous before we started about being out on the ocean, but that vanished quickly because we knew we were in good hands.

The paddling was really very easy and felt safe. They took us over to black rock and one of our party got out to jump. After we were back on our way my wife regretted not jumping so they offered to go again on the way back. This put us over the 90 minutes allotted but they didn’t care-customer experience was our first.

Overall I highly recommend doing an outrigger and especially with Ali’i Maui. Uncle Jamie and his Ohana are top notch!

My husband, two grandsons and I went out with Uncle and Chris. They were so funny and welcoming and our trip was so much fun. The boys got to swim over to Black Rock, climb up, and jump off multiple times. What a great surprise. Truly a magical day for all of us! !

This was the surprise of our trip! It was a last minute reservation and we are so happy we went! The crew was just extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We went out for an hour and a half and found ourselves right next to three whales. There was a baby, a mother and an “escort” wandering around us…we’ve never seen such a close display of whales! The crew was very cautious and careful to ensure we did not crowd the whales and instead allowed the whales to come to us. It was the first experience on Maui that felt local. If you are in the area, you should definitely contact Ali’i Maui for a canoe trip! It was the high of our vacation! Mahalo Ali’i Maui!

THE BEST canoe crew in Maui! We have tried other canoes but nothing compared to Ali Maui canoes. They had great attitudes and provided a fun family experience for my family of 9 people. I would highly recommend them and I will canoe with them every time I visit Maui.

Great staff with interesting stories. Told the trip would be one and half hours but we were back where we started within an hour. During the trip, we would paddle a small distance and then sit. For those familiar with Ka’anapali beach, we paddled to the original embassy (the pink hotel) - this is a very short trip (approximately 1 mile).

Disappointing tour; while we return to Maui every year, we will not select this tour again.

This is the BEST so stop scrolling and book with Ali’i ASAP!! My husband and I had an amazing morning with this crew and this should be at the top of every list of things to do while visiting Maui! We booked for 8am and the water was crystal clear and so beautiful. The whole staff is super friendly and our guides Pono and Smokey are absolutely amazing. After a quick lesson we were safely out on the water and we enjoyed every minute of it! Smokey and Pono brought us to all the perfect places to spot turtles and other cool fish while we chatted about local spots around the island to check out during our visit. We took some great pictures while out on the water and my husband even swam over to take a dive off the black rock cliff!! This was the perfect way to start our day and we are even considering booking again for a 2nd time we loved it so much. This is an absolutely perfect experience and we highly recommend booking with this company!! Thank you Pono & Smokey and everyone at Ali’i for an amazing morning today!!! 10/10

What an amazing trip this morning! The crew was the best part, had us laughing most of the time but also shared a lot of knowledge about the islands. Was such a great trip and saw a handful of turtles as well. One of the best adventures we took on our trip at a very reasonable cost. Can’t wait to come back. Thank you Jamie and Jason!

Favorite activity on the island! Our family of six adults enjoyed a fun morning, racing guys vs gals and surfing aboard the outrigger canoes. “Uncle” was great and made everyone feel welcome. Our guides were so much fun and went out of their way to ensure we had a memorable time. Mahalo! 🤘

I come to Ka’anapali yearly and have always walked past the outrigger canoes near the Westin Villas. I thought it would be too difficult for me. Well, I was wrong. I tried it today and it was an absolute blast. I stared out nervous but my fears quickly disappeared. I was comfortable every second of the trip. And the trip was AMAZING. The water was gorgeous. The coastline was gorgeous. The rowing was fun. And the sea life was spectacular.
Our guides were so informative, skilled and fun. Thank you Wahi, Smokey and Jason. We had a great time and next year we’ll be back with the rest of the family.
