Our guide Dave Chappelle was incredible. We had two kids with us as well and he made sure they had an awesome time. Well worth it.

We had a magical Kayaking adventure visiting with majestic Humpback whales. Literally yards away, we were able to experience a mother whale bringing her young calf up to the surface, helping it to practice taking breaths, and ultimately teaching the baby to take its first leap into the air. Dave was an excellent guide - truly ensuring that we were safe, having fun, learning about the beauty of the sea, and respecting the whales, sea turtles, environment and Hawaiian culture. I highly recommend Aqualani Beach and Ocean Recreation!

Aloha wadamsjjc, Thank you for choosing Aqualani Beach & Ocean Recreation for your Kayak Eco Tour! It is officially the best time of year to be kayaking as we are officially in peak whale season. You are one of the lucky ones to be able to experience a Mother Humpback Whale with her Calf teaching it how to surface. We are so happy that you were able to experience that with us! Mahalo for taking the time to write a 5 star review. A Hui Hou, Stephanie T Aqualani Beach & Ocean Recreation

We just had an amazing morning with Al on a private tour which allowed us more snorkel and kayak time. We enjoyed hearing his personal Maui journey and his knowledge of the environment. thanks to his sharp eye, we saw turtles, octopus and copious fish.

We’ve had fun with outrigger canoe trips before but this one exceeded our expectations. Jacob was a terrific guide — fun, knowledgeable & flexible. We took a few minutes to rest and before we knew it whales were surfacing just 100 feet away. It was hands down the best whale experience we’ve had on Maui, in part due to being so close to the water surface. That plus snorkeling and seeing turtles — doesn’t get much better than that!

Aloha nhes, Thank you for choosing Aqualani Beach & Ocean Recreation! We are so happy to hear that you had such a wonderful experience with our outrigger canoe, and that it exceeded your expectations. Paddling in the Canoe is especially memorable right now since it is whale season, and you can see the humpback whales so close in their natural habitat! Mahalo for taking the time to write a 5 star review, and we look forward to your return. A Hui Hou, Stephanie T Aqualani Beach & Ocean Recreation

From leadership (Brent) to the amazing staff (Shauna, Jane, Allison and Ryan) they MADE our trip. The Westin Hotel was finishing up some amazing refresh work on the pool deck and the Aqualani staff did their best to ensure that it didn’t inhibit our experience. I’m not even sure if the food and beverage folks fall under the Aqualani umbrella which speaks highly as to how they work together seamlessly. They all work tirelessly and with a smile. I highly recommend hanging out on the pool deck, take advantage of their hospitality while enjoying what is one of the best views on Maui!
