Took the A.M. outrigger canoe ride, what a cool experience! If your looking for an off the beaten path type activity in the heart of Ka'anapali you've found it! We came to Maui on our honeymoon and we did quite a few activities, both of us ranked our experience with Maui Paddle Sports right at the top of our lists! The guides were a fun, personable, and engaging bunch. You can sense they love what they do and their enthusiasm is contagious! They really do make it a point to make sure your enjoying yourself. Guys, seeing the Maui coast from a little ways out from the beach is truly breathtaking, its a different vantage point than we got anywhere else. I would recommend the trip for this reason alone, the rest is gravy. Thanks guys for a truly memorable and unique experience! Mahalo, well see ya next time were in Maui!

What's a girl to do when beautiful specimens of human beings find her sauntering along the beach with nothing to do, but soak in the sun? ...jump aboard the wa'a of Sule & George! I was but a solo traveler, but Sule and George wasted no time integrating me into our tour group. They took time to personalize the experience for each individual and played to our strengths. After a few minutes of chatting, we were strategically positioned to maximize our combined efforts of exploring the beauty that is Maui. Sule and George drew us in with rich history and breathtaking moments of creation. This is an experience I recommend to everyone! I came alive on the water and relished in its gentleness and marine life. LAVA!

We recently did a two family trip to Maui. We did A LOT of activities but the overall best one we did was the canoes. The guides were amazing and so much fun. They were wonderful from booking, all the way through. We had a wonderful time seeing the turtles and hearing all the local lore and about their rowing crews. We had two canoes. One for the adults and one for the kids. We raced at the end and I am pretty sure the adults beat the pants off the kids although I think Barry would beg to differ.
They are a wonderful group of people who look forward to showing you the best time. It was the favorite activity of both family hands down.
Mahalo everyone at MPS you made our trip the best.

“Stand up Paddle Board”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

We had such a great time and our instructor was wonderful. Neither of us had tried this sport and were a little apprehensive about being able to actually stand up. Our instructor took the time to explain everything, took us into a shallow area for us to give it a try and took the time necessary to make sure we had a great experience. It was not as hard as I expected and I give credit to our instructor for making it a great experience.
