“We loved it!”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

On the Fourth of July we celebrated the most authentic Hawaiian way... An outrigger canoe ride. What a great time with Reese and Cynthia. My two teenagers had a great time and thank you Cynthia for taking them up Black Rock to jump into the water.

“Excellent adventure!”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

A perfect morning! The weather was wonderful, the ocean was calm, the sea life was active, and our guide Jamie was amazing on Hawaiian history. This activity is recommended for all and I look forward to getting back into the outrigger again on my next trip to Maui!

“Let's do it again!”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Outrigger canoe ride along the Kaanapali shore with the wife and daughter. Guides Reese and Cynthia were great. Learned a lot, (including the reasons why only one outrigger instead of two!), saw a bunch of turtles. Lots of interesting history and information about the sacred black rock area; Cynthia even got our daughter to go cliff diving!

Can't wait to get back and do it again!

“Best water experience on Maui”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

This company and its crew are great! We are repeat customers because we have so much fun with them. They are knowledgeable, funny, helpful, kind, and not to mention in great shape! Out rigging with them is a must if you are doing water actives on Maui!

“The kids loved it and so did we.”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Outrigger canoe ride along the shore with the wife and two young kids. Everyone had a great time thanks to our guides Jamie and Kapena. Both were informative, friendly, and funny. My kids loved seeing all the turtles and feeding the fish some pineapple. Who knew they ate that. Swimming along black rock and hearing the history of the point and the whole area was great. Thanks for the info Jaime. Could not have asked for more.
