Highlights
  • Snorkel and kayak along Maui’s famous Turtle Town coast
  • Get fantastic views of South Shore mountains from the water
  • Snorkel in the clear waters of Makena, one of Maui’s best snorkel spots
  • Guaranteed green turtle sightings—a must for any Maui vacation
What to expect
  • 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 to 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.

Also keep an eye out for passing pods of spinner dolphins and, during the winter months, migrating whales.

PLEASE BOOK WITH GRIFF HE IS AMAZING
Aug 2021
Let me just start off with this: I LOVE GRIFF!!!

Griff is absolutely fantastic and I say this with all my heart. He is so down to earth and he really gave us the history and background of the ocean and Maui before even getting us situated with the equipment. It is crucial to understand the respect we must have for the ocean because it has its own energies and power that we cannot 100% fully understand but must have respect for.

The ocean is a powerful entity and should not be messed with!

PLEASE EVERYONE BUY THE REEF-SAFE SUNSCREEN FROM HIM!!!!!!!
It protects the reefs and also does not run off, which protects yourself as well (and you save money because you're not spraying your sunscreen into the air). It lasted the entire 3 hour kayak trip AND snorkeling + I did not get sunburnt at all.

Griff was so compassionate and he took the executive decision to take us away from the more popular snorkel areas so that we may have our own more private area. I don't know how to swim and I honestly started to panic when I was dismounting from my kayak to snorkel, and he immediately saw that I was panicking and IMMEDIATELY came to my rescue to calm me down and situate myself.
He is so accommodating and thoughtful. I was very very grateful that he provided us with (organic) fruit/fig bars because my boyfriend and I didn't eat before our excursion (we had just arrived the night before).

Griff had such a warm, explorative, and excitable energy. It's really difficult to not have a good time, even when I was struggling to kayak because honestly IT DOES REQUIRE SOME STRENGTH!

I loved this experience so much and I will MOST DEFINITELY book with him again if I have the opportunity to go to Maui again. He made me appreciate nature even more than I already do and I cannot say enough that I had an amazing time.

Great time - even for my apprehensive husband!
Jul 2021
Our family of 4 (2 teenagers) had a great time this July kayaking with Griff. His love of Hawaii and ocean life shines through. My husband, who was very scared to kayak, left saying that we would love to come back and whale watch with Griff.

Things to know:
Parking is crowded for the am kayak as all the companies go out at the same time. Arrive early. There may be room in the lot, or you may need to park on the side of the road.

Griff has dry bags that attach to your kayak. Any valuables are best left in the bag, and not your car. They stayed dry.

We love Aloha Kayaks Maui! Thanks Griff!
We had an amazing snorkeling and kayaking excursion with Griff! This is our fourth time booking with Aloha Kayaks Maui and we are so glad we did every time. It was our daughters first time snorkeling and Griff was so patient and made sure she was okay. He went the extra mile for our family and we are so grateful. Our daughter can’t wait to snorkel again!

Five stars all the way!
Jul 2021 • Couples
Kayak and snorkel tour was a definite highlight of our Maui trip this summer. We loved Griff! He was fun, personable, and so knowledgeable. He cares deeply about protecting the ocean and all of the plants and animals that live in it. He also demonstrated great respect for Hawaiian history, culture, natives. I hadn't been kayaking or snorkeling in many years so I was a bit nervous heading out but Griff was really patient and gave really clear instructions throughout the tour. Five star review, highly recommend!

Fun and educational family snorkel trip.
Griff was great. He was knowledgeable about Hawaiian history and marine biology. He also can Sight a turtle from more than 50 feet. We also appreciated his care for the environment and his clients. He was an excellent guide that I would recommend to anyone.

Griff is awesome. He clearly cares a lot about the island, its people, and their culture. We had a blast on the water, learned a lot, and enjoyed hanging out with him. Mahalo, Griff! Hope to see you again, next time for some whales.
