Met Derek at Makena Landing and decided to book a clear-bottom kayak excursion. Using the website to book was a snap. Derek greated us with a smile at the appointed place and time. Provided appropriate guidance so that everything went without a hitch. Saw plenty of turtles in their natural habitat. Happy to recommend CKM.

We saw 3 turtles. The staff is helpful, patient, friendly, prompt, and considerate. The only (-) thing is that in the intro before we went out into the water I recall him telling us to wait in the water and he would come get us. Well that didn't really click with us as to why because we kayak a lot... More

My fiance and I have been wanting to kayak out in the ocean the past several years we've come to the islands for vacation. Glad we finally got to do it. My fiance found Clear Kayaks Maui while looking for stuff to do on Maui. He booked the excursion online but we had to pay when we met up with... More

We've kayaked a few times before so I booked the clear bottom kayaks for my wife and I. The staff is very friendly and helpful during the entire process. When we went out in the water we realized about an hour into it that we were both getting a little nauseous from looking down through the bottom of the kayak... More

Our family of 4 enjoyed this fun, relaxing activity on our most recent Maui trip. Great to get out to "Turtle Town" and paddle around with some of these amazing creatures! Derek was great, and got us out paddling promptly and safely. Make sure you consider breakfast and Dramamine for your young ones before heading out! (And possibly for yourself,... More

Wanted to kayak in Wailea and happened upon Clear Kayaks Maui. The ease of making a reservation, getting directions and getting some kayak basics was painless. The clear bottom of the kayaks made it even more enjoyable. Saw a ton of sea turtles! Kyles' attention to detail and his helpfulness made this a very memorable day. Thanks Kyle!

Aloha Gofeo, I apologize that we didn't receive your calls! We have been having some trouble with our call forwarding system, especially on areas of Maui where cell signal isn't great. I assure you we are still open and running business as usual. Our online reservations can be made 24hours a day. Hopefully our call service has been fixed. We... More

Clear Kayaks Maui was one of the best finds for my wife and I on our honeymoon. We got out there early and Derek was there to meet us. He was very helpful in preparing us to go out on the water and everything was perfect. We saw tons of wildlife in the ocean and didn't get very exhausted from... More

Had a wonderful time on the kayaks and saw lots of colorful fish and turtles. Derek was super friendly and helped with launch and return of kayaks. We Just got to enjoy the water and scenery. Definitely a great value and awesome way to start another day in paradise. Highly recommend to locals and visitors alike.
