Maui Kayak Tours

In ancient Hawai‘i there were only two modes of transportation: by foot on land, and by wa‘a (canoe) on water. Now you too can go back in time along Maui’s pristine shores in much the same way in a kayak. Imagine peacefully paddling on a gentle bay with the towering backdrop of Haleakalā, sunlight sparkling on the water. Discover hidden gems like La Perouse Bay, a legendary ancient Hawaiian site along Maui’s south shore. Or, kayak Maui’s coast out to one of the island’s stunning hidden beaches. The waters of Maui await you.

Kayaking on Maui

The south and west sides of Maui offer some of the best kayaking in the Islands. Honolua Bay on the northwest side is a beautiful marine preserve nestled at the base of the West Maui Mountains. There are numerous caves to explore, and crystal-clear waters with fantastic reefs and abundant sea life make Honolua Bay a favorite Maui kayaking locale of visitors and locals alike. The remote Hanakāo‘o Beach Park on the south shore, also known as “Canoe Beach,” is a stellar kayaking spot where you can explore isolated beaches and a pristine shoreline chock full of archaeological sites. Kapalua Bay, though close to civilization, has calm, clear waters and spectaculars view of the West Maui Mountains and the nearby islands of Lanaʻi, Kahoʻolawe, and Molokaʻi.
