exclusive 2.5-hour ocean kayaking and snorkel excursion to turtle reef

This fun, informative experience starts at Makena Landing, literally just minutes from Wailea, where kayakers paddle to Turtle Reef. Calm clear waters are perfect for snorkeling and enjoying the peaceful turtles in what is called Turtle Town.


On this tour, guests will experience Maui’s beautiful coastline up-close and personal.  Dolphin sightings are very common too! 


No experience necessary. This trip is designed for the novice as well as experienced kayak enthusiast. We use very stable ocean kayaks.  Your experienced local guides will lead your small comfortable groups at their own pace, paddling to inaccessible out-of-the-way shoreline areas and coves
