Kayaking In Maui – A Guide For Those Who Prefer To Stay Above The Water

kayaking in maui

Of course Maui (or any Hawaiian island) offers an abundance of water activities, but some prefer kayaking or taking a cruise over snorkeling, scuba diving, or other activities that require they go under water. Hopefully you’ve already booked one of our Maui condo rentals if you’re headed to our beautiful island soon, however we have a few tips for those who plan to invest a little time in kayaking once they arrive and get settled in.

There’s nothing like getting out on the beautiful, calm waters that surround Maui, whether you choose to rent a kayak and head out for exploration and adventure on your own, or prefer a guided tour.

If a guided tour is what you’re looking for, one of the best is Kelii’s Kayak Tours, highly recommended by past visitors and located in Kihei, just about an hour from Ka’anapali. Prices vary depending on the tour you take, its length, and other factors. The West Maui Shore kayak tour ranges from $69 to $99 per person, depending on whether you take the 2 1/2 or 4 1/2 hour tour. Other tours include the Maui North Shore Explorer, South Shore Turtle Adventure, and Waterfall Hike & Coral Garden Paddle, among others.

Other guided kayak tours include South Pacific Kayaks and Maui Eco Tours, both highly rated by visitors. Kelii’s Kayak Tours also rents single and double kayaks by the day or week for those who prefer to strike out on their own. You can also find other kayak rental companies by searching online.

Even if you do enjoy snorkeling or scuba diving, kayaking in Maui is a wonderful experience. Why not do it all?
