Best 5 Maui Kayak Tours

On Maui, being on the ocean in the early morning calm offers magic like nothing else. The air is cool, and the water is warm. The tradewinds have ceased overnight, and the sun slowly creeps out from behind the shadow of Haleakala, penetrating the glassy, deep blue of the sea. From the seat of a kayak, the magic is tangible.

 

Kayak tours are one of the most unforgettable ways to experience the ocean on Maui. Rather than being packed like sardines on a big-name tour boat, kayak tours give visitors a more intimate connection to the sea. From the ancient corals at Olowalu to the more recent lava flows near Makena, there are a network of reefs begging to be explored and several kayak tours willing to take you there.  Here are the best kayak tours offered on Maui:

Top 5 Maui Surf Lessons

Maui’s north and west shores are home to world-class waves, attracting surfers and spectators from all over the world. Peahi (or ‘Jaws’) on Maui’s north shore is known for its wave heights that can reach upwards of 60 feet on select swells. Honolua Bay on the west side is famous for its picture-perfect hollow right-hand point break.

While these waves are better left to the professionals, mellow surf breaks are abundant on Maui’s south and lower west sides. While not quite as famous as Jaws or Honolua Bay, these breaks have seen the likes of thousands of beginner surfers and have started countless people on their surfing journey. Of course, this wouldn’t be the case without the help of some of Maui’s best surf schools.
