We had a great time today with Curtis from Hawaiian Paddle Sports! Did some kayaking and snorkelling and saw lots of fish, turtles, and also an eel and octopus. He had lots of great information for us during our tour and he took amazing photos! Was a great morning out on the water!

This was our second outing with Hawaiian Paddle Sports in two years. Both times we've done the Outrigger Canoe Trip which was one of our best experiences in Maui. This time, Tim, the owner took us out. We love the small group (no more than 5 customers at a time), personal attention and experience and the unique cultural learning experience. The guides are very knowledgeable of Hawaiian culture and history which they are proud to share. This is a hands-on experience with getting the canoe ready, pushing it into the surf, and paddling off shore with some of the best views of the islands. We learned about the various islands, sea life, language and culture of the native peoples. Stopped for snorkeling where the coral, fish and turtles don't disappoint. The guide joins in snorkeling, and points out specific fish and coral. The great bonus is the guide takes lots of amazing pictures both above and below ocean level, and sends you a link to all the photos. Amazing keepsake. We love this tour and like to do it each time we visit Maui.

Our family of five, with three teenage boys, hit the jackpot with HPS. First we took surfing lessons with Enzo & Greg. Both guys were friendly, fun, knowledgeable and total professionals. They gave us excellent tutorials on how to surf (first time for all of us) and got EVERY one of us up! We had a blast. The next day was our kayak & snorkel trip in Makena Cove with HPS and imagine our delight when we pulled up to the truck and discovered Enzo would be our guide! Enzo is so knowledgeable with the bay and it’s creatures and has strong family connections to that special place. Enzo helped us discover beautiful reef fish, an eagle ray and lovable turtles in his special spots. We give high praise to HPS, Greg and to our special new Ohana member, Enzo.

Our private SUP tour with Laurie was fantastic! She is very knowledgeable about the area and gave us some good tips. She was very helpful with our 7-yr old daughter who was somewhat afraid to stand up. She spotted several sea turtles for us, and she took excellent photos our our time in the water. As a first-timer, I felt very comfortable with her instruction, and I can’t wait to SUP again.

Make sure you ask for Cory when you book your tour!! My fiancé and I did the small-group snorkelling tour with him, and it was the best part of our trip, by far. He was so welcoming and knowledgeable: before the trip, he explained all of the different ocean animals we could see, and then pointed them out to us throughout the tour. He knows an incredible amount of cool facts about aquatic life! Moreover, my fiancé had never been snorkelling before and he made her feel comfortable. He took us to two great snorkelling spots where we saw dolphins and lots of green sea turtles (including a baby sea turtle). The pictures he took of our trip were amazing, and he provided us with some great recommendations of other things to do around the island. We also loved how ocean friendly the company is: Cory explained all their company is doing to help protect the ocean and things that we can do to help. Throughout the tour, he was careful to make sure we gave the creatures their space, and respect their environment. You won’t regret booking with Cory!
