Full description
See Maui the adventurous way with a stand-up paddling (SUP) lesson or tour. Make the most of your private guide, who will lead small groups along the idyllic coastline in Makena Bay for a 2-hour tour or lesson. Enjoy an unforgettable experience getting up close to nature in Maui’s warm, clear blue waters. Start with an early check-in where you will get all the paddling equipment you will need. Your guide will plan out the ideal route based on your interests. Let your guide know ahead of time if there is anything you want to see so the tour can be customized especially for you. Paddle along the coastline, where you will get great views of the bay. Make sure to look out for green sea turtles, manta rays, tropical reef fish and fantastic coral reef. If it’s the right season, be sure to look out for whales and dolphins, too.
