Traveler Tips

Its a recreational paddle, the rest of my group had never been in a kayak before.
My husband and I came from California and although we are used to sun, I would recommend sunscreen and a hat.
Very cool to be on the ocean in a kayak!

Kayaking in Maui
Nancy_J, Mar 2023
We booked the kayaking paddle trip, for 3-18-23. We found the store/meeting place easily. We were greeted very nicely by Ryan our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and made the experience a great time. We saw turtles, monk seals, and some whales in the distance. We learned about some history of the islands, and had fun asking questions. Paddling was easy and we felt safe. Try it, you won’t regret it. Thanks Ryan for this great adventure.
Great excursion!

Like Ryan our guide said, this wasn't a whale watching tour. Mainly learning about the area and ocean creatures. Kayaker put into the ocean and back.
Amazing whale watching experience.
Katrina_S, Feb 2023
Ryan did a great job! We saw so many whales. We learned a lot of Maui and island facts. It was a breath taking experience.
Great guide

Fun times in Maui
Bridget_P, Feb 2023
First time experience for us. We are from the older generation and we weren’t sure if we could hang, or even stay upright. We did great so we still got it! It was a lot of fun, had a great guide, saw whales, turtles and seals. We would definitely do it again. Thanks for a great time!
Great experience
Evan_P, Feb 2023
Ryan our tour guide was incredible. We learned a lot about the island and he always waited for the group. 10/10 would recommend!
Our favorite activity in Maui!
Valerie_T, Feb 2023
Ryan, our guide was patient with us as we are only mildly experienced paddlers. He led us out with expertise and we were able to see several whales up fairly close, amazing, once in a lifetime experience from that perspective! We also saw turtles, black sharks and a spiny sea urchin Ryan found for us! All in all, it was fun exercise and an absolutely wonderful day!

Our guide was very knowledgeable, and made everyone feel comfortable whether they had kayaked before or not.
Wonderful 2 hours
Lyn_F, Jan 2023
Ryan was a wonderful guide. He gave us all the tools to be safe and informed as well as providing us with some history of Hawaii. Well worth taking 2 hours to get some exercise, see the ocean wild life and surround yourself in beauty.
Great experience! Highly recommend!
Brenda_W, Jan 2023
It was a great experience. We saw sea turtles and monk seals as we headed out to deeper waters. Ryan was an excellent guide and a bonus: he was very knowledgeable about Hawaiian history!!
Error in the system
Emerita_D, Jan 2023
We started 14 in the group. Viator has a limit of 6-7 per reservation, it took a special booking by a Viator to book 2 groups of 7. I then changed one of the group to 6, so 13 final count in the group. On the day of, the booking of 7 was overlooked. To make story short, we have to sacrifice 3 people who couldn’t be accommodated. Now I’m looking for my refund for the 3 people.
Fun time!
Stacey_E, Dec 2022
We were able to see Seals and turtles while Kayaking next to them. Our guide Ryan was very knowledgeable and helped us learn how to Kayak safely as this was our first time. Great family experience.

Highly recommend!

Truly enjoyable very easy ocean kayak trip. The water was calm and beautiful. We got to see a monk seal and a sea turtle up so close. Our guide, Ryan, was really great, patient and helpful with our paddle instructions both before and during the trip. Provided us with interesting Maui information during our breaks throughout the trip. The length of 1 hour is great for the inexperienced kayaker. The kayaks had sturdy comfortable back rests which is not always the ass. It was a great trip and I would do it again.
Kayaking off the beach of Maui.
Sue_K, Oct 2022
It was a great experience to go out on the water and be in control of your own kayak. Our instructor Ryan was very thorough and also shared a lot of history and general information. We really enjoyed all aspects of it. Jo Mo was also very polite and greeting us. Thank you
