Itinerary
Meet your guide in Makena in the morning to beat the heat and crowds, and set off in a kayak to explore Maui’s south shore. Paddle along the coast just south of Wailea, where you’ll get gorgeous views of Haleakala and the West Maui Mountains. Conditions here are protected from wind and swells, so it's an ideal spot for both the kayaking and snorkeling.

Entering ‘Turtle Town,’ swap your kayak for a mask and fins to explore life below the water’s surface. The calm, clear waters offer opportunities for all levels of snorkelers, and you're guaranteed to see Maui's famous green sea turtles. Also keep an eye out for passing pods of spinner dolphins and, during the winter months, migrating whales.
