This was a really fun time. Even though we had no experience with canoeing or rowing, this was an experience not to be missed. We were truly up close and personal with the whales! The captain shared about the outrigger's history and it's importance in Hawai'ian culture. We would take this trip again without any hesitation.

We had a fabulous time! The guides were local guys with lots of info--and awesome attitudes--to share. This was our favorite activity of our vacation. Highly recommended.

Three of us booked an outrigger canoe trip with Maui Paddle Sports up at the Westin Ocean Villas. We had a fantastic time! The wind and seas were up and they gave us the choice to reschedule or go out and if we went out it would be an adventure. We chose adventure and some of the canoeing was almost an e-ticket ride! Jaimie our pace keeper and George our steersman gave us great instruction, some Hawaiian paddle history, a great workout and some laughs because they had a great sense of humor. We will definitely sign up with them again when we come back next year!

4 of us paddled with Mike and Jamie this morning, and it was a great experience. We are 60, 54, and 33 years old and the paddling was not too difficult. We saw several whales and turtles, and had a great time talking with Jamie and Mike. It was a great way to experience a little bit of Hawaiian culture, see some beautiful sights, and spend time together as a family.

I had a fantastic experience paddling with Barry. He went out of his way to help get me going on a surfski and made sure I had a great time. I would not have gone out in such windy conditions without him there, and had a great time learning to ride the swells downwind. I will definitely go back!
