Such a perfect morning. I had Jesse as my guide, and I couldn't have asked for anyone better. From the moment we set off to when it came time to head back in, she made me super comfortable and relaxed. Throughout our morning she even had great information she shared on surrounding islands, marine life, and Maui in general. I... More

My husband and I wanted to take surf lessons and we were recommended Hawaiian Paddle Sports by a friend. We were very pleased with our experience and had a blast. J'sun was our instructor and met us at the designated beach. We had the beach to ourselves and it was a perfect place to learn. J'sun was patient and encouraging,... More

On March 6th we went out on kayaks with Chris and are still not believing what we saw and heard!!! It was the trip if a lifetime, I'm sure we will never see anything like it ever again. We sat right over a whale and watched him while he sang. Then he came up and blew right there -- he... More

A day to remember - always! Matt is a gracious and knowledgeable guide and we saw whales and turtles from the kayak. We even heard whale song 🐳 incredible. But even without sightings it is wonderful yo be out on the water in silence and without a big group. Warmly recommended!

Our family of 6 had a fabulous kayak and snorkel with Hawaiian Paddle Sports and Curtis! He taught us so much first about the sea, fish and whales and it was just a great morning. Beautiful weather, smooth waters and snorkelling with turtles and so many fish! Wonderful, however, didn't get to see any whales. Still awesome! Great job Curtis!

It was 'whale season' so the group tour with the sister company Maui Kayak Adventures was going to be focused on whale watching. We love whales too, but we had already been on two whale watching tours earlier in the week and we wanted to go kayaking and snorkeling with sea turtles so we booked a private trip with HPS... More

If you want a really close up and personal whale adventure, you and children 10 or older will be enthralled by the outrigger canoe adventure. You have to launch and paddle, but our group of 6 included 2 kids and women in their 40s, 50s and 70s who enjoyed the action! A great, safe trip.....and the whale sitings were spectacular... More

What a day! We were originally scheduled to launch out of Olowalu but after arriving, our awesome tour guide, Matt, told us it was too windy to launch there. He gave us the option of rescheduling or driving to the south location because his co-worker informed him the conditions were better there. We were super excited to go our on... More

I have been whale watching before on the traditional boat. I wanted to try something different and thought I would try out a kayaking tour. My husband and I had a fantastic time. Our guide, Destiny, was extremely knowledgeable and made this a wonderful experience. We also saw a huge number of whales, turtles and fish while we were out.... More
