Overview
Combine two favorite Maui activities in one day on this kayak and snorkel adventure from Makena. Paddle in calm, protected waters with great views of Maui’s South Shore and then explore beneath the surface of the famous “Turtle Town” coast with provided snorkel gear. Green turtle sightings are guaranteed year-round.
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. 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.

Griff was the most knowledgeable guide I have been with in a long time. I think he knows more Hawaiian than most locals. He got us out on the water and started paddling. It wasn't long before we could actually hear the male whales singing above the water. This whale was actually

Kayaking and snorkeling with Griff / Aloha Kayaks was a highlight of our two weeks on Maui! Griff is the best guide you could ask for. He's knowledgeable and patient, and wants everyone to have a great experience. We stuck with a pod of whales for quite awhile - over an hour! -
