If eco-adventures appeal to you, this paddle and snorkel tour is just your speed. Local guides lead a few people into the open seas of South Maui or West Maui for several hours of snorkeling, kayaking and sightseeing. The kayak tours take place in the waters off Makena, La Perouse or on the other side of the island, just off the pali (cliffs). The tours last anywhere from two and a-half to four hours and include snacks and soft drinks. Call or check out the website for prices and reservations.
If your up for a great paddle, vibrant sea life, marine naturalist knowledge, and information on the contemporary and historical cultural of Maui, this company is for you! Also, the fact that it is a locally owned and run company make the experience much more authentic and meaningful. SMALL groups sizes, with 'people' driven service with out a doubt sets this company ahead of all the rest. Authentic, down to earth, and all around top notch experience!
If you want to kayak with 20 other people and barely see your guide - then Makena Kayak & Tours is not the place for you. My son and I had a personal tour with Dino the owner. He is a native of Maui and has a true love of the ocean and the island. We were beginners and he tailored the trip to our skill level and the sights we were interested in. My son wanted to see the Sea Turtles and Dino took us out to a spot where we were able to snorkel and see several turtles. Dino got out and snorkeled with us and pointed out several things that we would have missed. Throughout the tour - he taught us about ocean life and the history of the island. He limits his trips to small groups and takes a true interest in his customers. A truly beautiful, educational, and fun experience. Well worth the time and money.
