We talk a lot on our blog about all of the cool things there are to do on our beautiful island, but this article is geared toward those who are looking forward to kayaking in Maui and enjoying the Pacific Ocean. Maybe you’ve already booked your Maui vacation rental, and now you’re ready to learn about some of the great kayaking opportunities you can enjoy once you get here.
Since we’re located in West Maui, we’ll start there. West Maui Kayak Tours is just minutes away from our facility, and is one of the highest-rated of all businesses offering kayak tours. A guided tour that also offers snorkeling if you want to participate, you’ll paddle for about an hour and enjoy the most beautiful surroundings you’ve ever seen. Be sure to bring along a towel, waterproof camera, and sunglasses!
Maui Kayaks has a package for those who prefer not to snorkel, but to enjoy an easy paddle beginning near downtown Lahaina and traveling through Shark Pit reef. With about two hours of paddling time, this is ideal for groups of six or less, and includes the gear you’ll need, water, a snack, personal guide, and more. You may even experience the sea turtles, or come across spinner dolphins, eagle rays, or a monk seal!
Maui Ocean Sports is another great option, whether you want a guided kayaking and snorkeling eco-adventure or prefer to rent a kayak and go out on your own. If you choose the Lahaina Excursion, expect to spend 2 1/2 to 3 hours paddling, snorkeling, and taking in the beautiful scenery and ocean life. If you’re experienced and just want to rent a kayak, the daily rate for a single is $35, and a double is $60. You can also rent a kayak for a couple of hours, or by the week.
As you can see, there are plenty of opportunities for those who want to go kayaking as part of their Maui vacation experience – and these are just a few examples, there are dozens of kayaking opportunities across the island.
