Highly recommend this trip! Kia'i was a knowledgable and fun guide. I am usually afraid of open water but felt safe and relaxed the whole trip. The paddling was so fun and hands down the best snorkeling of the whole trip. We saw 4 turtles and so many fish. My favorite part was hearing the history of the area and learning about the different types of fish. Would definitely do the trip again!

We were so disappointed. We booked and paid for an outrigger canoe trip. We arrived 30 minutes early as the company had directed us to, and no one ever showed up. We called several times, left messages and emails and still have not heard from the company. I had to file a claim with my credit card company to hopefully receive a refund. DO NOT BOOK WITH THIS COMPANY!!

My husband and I looked forward to going out on this outrigger tour. It was suppose to be a 2 hour outing but we were only out for 1 hour and 15 minutes and this included the 30 minute instruction before hand. Let me say that I am an experienced competitive dragon boat racer and am fully confident in my own skills out on the waters. On this morning the waves were very high and they still took us out which I don’t believe they should have. We were actually waiting for a call that they would be cancelling it as we drove to the beach. Two instructors and four guests including myself, my husband and another couple were on the outrigger. Basically after spending about 45 minutes on the water...much of it just sitting still we headed back into land. Paddling towards the beach and catching a large high wave we were told to paddle fast to ride the wave in. Once the canoe hits the sand we were told to jump out quickly and grab our seat and pull the boat up onto the sand. But as we hit the sand another wave came along. It went over my husbands head who was one seat behind me but the wave hit me straight on my back and in the head and threw me forward under the bench in front of me. My legs were stuck and when pulled out my shins were ripped apart down to the cartlige. The benches were wrapped in some kind of rough material that basically shredded my shins. I was taken to the hospital by ambulance for treatment. Getting over 20 stitches and suffering terrible trauma to my legs. I have severe damage and a very long recovery ahead of me. No one from Maui Paddle even bothered to call to see how I was and only one of the instructors bothered to come say good luck to me as I was loaded into the ambulance. I don’t think this company is very trustworthy. The female instructor told me that they hadn’t been out for weeks because of owners being away. We would not recommend this company. There 2 are other companies to use as we found out after although we have no idea how safe they are. Our decision to go with this company ruined our vacation and still our daily lives. We are finally back home after waiting for an okay from the hospital to travel but I am still not able to work as I struggle to walk and drive. In our opinion - they should not have taken the outrigger out on such rough waves. There were warnings all week about high waves because of the hurricanes off the coast. We also don’t think the instructor/steers person was experienced enough.

This was a great event! I have mobility issues from knee surgeries and they accomodated me. This is great for young and old. We got to see a Sea Turtle and then surf two waves in the outrigger. Yay! A must do!
