No experience is necessary on this kayak and snorkeling adventure. If desired, your guide will provide beachside paddling instruction before you launch into the water. You’ll head along Maui’s southern shore, past Little Beach and Big Beach, out towards La Perouse Bay. Admire the scenic views from the water while your guide provides commentary about the island. 

Then, hit the water! Snap on your snorkel gear and peer into the exotic marine life below. Glide past colorful coral reef, schools of fish and a green sea turtle or two. If you’re up for the 4.5-hour excursion, lunch will be provided along the way.
