Meet Maui's Ocean Friends


Aloha Kayaks Maui has been delivering fun and educational ocean experiences in Makena and Olowalu since 2012. We are proud to be an owner operated company with over 37 years combined guiding experience! Since the inception of Aloha Kayaks we have had the opportunity to guide over 9000 happy customers and teach them all we know about the diverse ecology here in Hawaii.

Check out our range of ocean adventures in Makena’s Turtle Town below. We offer kayak and paddleboard experiences year round! Book one of our fun and informative kayak and snorkel tours or why not try your hand at stand up paddleboarding? Whatever you choose, we know you’ll have a great day out in Makena’s pristine waters!

In Maui we are lucky enough to have green sea turtles here year round, and north pacific humpback whales that visit from December through April. We have a variety of tour options depending on your location and preferences. For visitors staying on the south side of Maui, we run daily and private tours from Makena Beach and also offer private paddleboarding lessons in Makena’s clear, calm waters. If you’re staying on the west side of the island we offer kayak and snorkel tours from Olowalu where we can explore an expansive fringe reef with the picturesque backdrop of the West Maui Mountains.


Ocean Experiences in Olowalu

For all our west side guests, we offer kayak and snorkel tours in Olowalu (just 5 miles south of Lahaina), Monday through Thursday.  Olowalu is home to an incredible and expansive fringe reef, brimming with life and even a turtle cleaning station. With amazing sea life below and a backdrop of the picturesque West Maui Mountains, a day out in Olowalu is the perfect Hawaiian vacation activity.

Private Kayak Tours + Group Excursions

“We just enjoyed a beautiful morning with 16 of our friends and family being guided by Griff and his assistant Patrick. A fun paddle with Turtle sightings and interesting narration. When we got in the water we were treated to many fish in crystal clear water. The kids swam amongst turtles and swam through an underwater arch. I cannot state enough the OUTSTANDING service Griff and Patrick provided. They are both very kid friendly and attentive. This is a must for families on Maui!”
