We had the best time on our trip we booked with Maui Paddle Sports for the 9:30 paddle. We hit the jackpot when we were assigned our two guides, Wahipaa and BJ! Two 50+ fluffier ladies and three teens joined up for a quick sign-in, training and water bottle distribution (free water bottles). I must be honest the check-in gentlemen... More

This group knows how to do it. We book a Friday morning paddle, finished, and book another for Saturday morning. This group of people are fun, knowledgable, entertaining, and worth the time to start the morning. These paddles were with Wahi, Del Ray (both trips), and Cord. Great guides and paddlers. A little bit of a workout to start the... More

Closed out a wonderful Hawaiian family vacation last week with an outrigger tour with Jamie and Anson. Their knowledge of the islands, history, delicate reefs, sea animals, overall oceanic and human well-being and even restaurants was most enjoyable. And the camaraderie with each other, the other MPS crews and my Ohana was a ton of fun. We'll never forget our... More

We had the best time on Sunday the 3rd of July with Cynthia and Cord! They were amazing at teaching us what to do, and giving us the background on paddling. There were 3 of us, and we enjoyed learning how to paddle fast like Cynthia and Cord do on their races. We glided thru the rough waves like sliced... More

There is a great reason that there are so many positive reviews of Maui Paddle Sports - from the super-friendly check-in, to our guides Del Ray and Ansen warmly greating us, to the paddling tips that our guides (who both race outriggers competively) gave us on paddling - this is an authentic experience! Whether you have done kayaking and canoeing... More

We go and ride with Maui paddle sports each time we visit. They treat us like family and give us a great time. The ride is smooth and we love seeing the turtles. It is an excursion for all ages. Jamie is our guide and he's the best!

The staff was friendly and funny from the start. Gave us the paddle and safety instructions and we went on our way. Had the most amazing experience with a very large pod 50+ of Hawaiian spinner dolphin swimming along the canoe. We were able to dive in and swim along for a bit too. The guides were awesome. They mentioned... More

We LOVED our canoe trip with Kahi and Mike! The trip was so informative, picturesque, and personalized! The entire staff was so welcoming, from the moment we approached their tent by the beach. We were fortunate enough to see and swim with many turtles on our outing, which was amazing. We loved hearing the stories, history and and the experiences!... More

We had an amazing adventure in the outrigger canoes with Maui Paddle Sports. We stayed at the Westin KOR so we were able to just walk out of our room right into the canoes. Swimming with the turtles was incredible!
