I first tried to sail the canoe two years ago. But because of poor communication (obviously, the same pattern is still present), it didn’t take place. Probably, I should have taken the hint and not pursued it… This year, I thought I might kill two...More

If you're looking for a private, special experience on the beautiful shores of Maui this is the adventure for you. This is not touristy or cookie cutter, and guaranteed, unlike anything you've been on before. The boat is reminiscent of an old Hawaiian style ship...More

The guides were great. It was fun to paddle out and snorkel where we saw multiple sea turtles on the ocean floor and on the surface. We did not regret paying the money for our first time snorkeling in Maui.

We went out on a Thursday morning with Dave, Vene and Kale - myself, my wife and our 10 year old daughter. I love the 9:00 am start time - although they will start earlier if you prefer. The boat is large enough for 6...More

This trip was a lot of fun! It felt like a true Hawaiian experience (a la the movie, Moana) as the outrigger canoe was vintage and the captain, Sage, was born and raised on the islands. Sage and his friend Dave where amiable and genuine....More

Voyages between Tahiti and the Hawaiian Islands may have existed for a short period of time, the maritime connection was eventually severed and the two nations drifted apart.
