Great morning! I enjoy kayaking but my husband and 19 year old daughter have never been sea kayaking. Our guides Andrew and Donnie were excellent. We had a brief meeting on the beach to go over what to expect and how to manage the kayaks. We had 2 great snorkel trips off the kayaks and everyone managed to get back on the kayaks without difficulties. We snorkeled by Makena and saw 4 sea turtles and lots of other fishes. It was great to be just with our family because the trip was at our speed and tailored to what we wanted to do and see. I also liked that the trip was photographed by our guides. By the time we returned to our condo the photos were already emailed to us. Would recommend as a must do on Maui.

Paddle boarded Makena with Donny. A beautiful location. Clear waters and beautiful coral Saw many sea turtles! The surf was smooth and the boarding great. Donny is a professional boarder, surfer and biker. Also a lifeguard. He has over 20 years of experience. He is very patient and a great instructor for beginners and advanced boarders alike. Very personable and conscientious. We chose Hawaiian because they cater to small groups and couples. The one-on-one instruction and supervision was wonderful...just what we needed. Well worth the price...highly recommend!!!

Hawaiian Paddle Sports will not disappoint you! Tim does a great job of communicating from the time you book your trip until he sends you FREE pictures to download from your adventure. My husband and I booked a kayak trip to Molikini, Tim was on time and ready to go. We were never rushed and had an excellent time both paddling and snorkeling. We LOVED that this was a private trip and would definitely go back to Hawaiian Paddle again. He has an amazing knowledge of Maui and the Hawaiian Islands. He is happy to share his best advice on a number of activities. We recommend Tim & Hawaiian Paddle Sports!

Kayaked out to Molokini about 3 1/2 miles off Makena. It's an volcano that has amazing snorkeling and dive 'drop off' into the bluest water. If you get chance you have got to do it. Thanks Hollis and Tim.

We signed up for this three hour excursion, and left with unforgettable memories. We had a chance to become familiar with the history and culture of the Polynesians and their way of life which we found fascinating. We went snorkeling and swam with sea turtles. Our instructors, Tim and Chyna, were very knowledgeable and made it really fun for our kids, as well.
