RESPECTING OUR
OCEAN FRIENDS

We can’t guarantee what you’ll see on the day but you might spot some local residents like green sea turtles, eels, octopus, triggerfish, butterflyfish, surgeonfish, urchins, and rays. Keep your eyes peeled for the famous Humuhumunukunukuapua’a fish (we just call it humuhumu for short!). We respect all wild animals; we don’t touch or annoy them during our tours.
 

Whales are regular visitors to Maui from December through April. Federal law prohibits approaching North Pacific Humpbacks within 100 yards.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE DAY

7:15 am meet your guide at the designated Makena Landing meet point. All waiver documents, gear issued, and on-land safety briefings are required prior to entering the ocean.

 

Before we hit the water, we’ll start with a brief land tutorial including the basics of kayaking, pointers on paddling technique, rules and regulations, and a rough plan for the morning.

TIME TO PADDLE

Your guide will assist with launching your kayak. Once all kayaks are afloat, time to paddle!

PADDLE TO THE BEST SNORKEL SPOT

The advantage of an experienced guide is local knowledge that dictates the best spot for that given day’s conditions. A  teachable moment is never ignored. An experienced, knowledgeable guide is key to THE ULTIMATE MAUI EXPERIENCE “Green Paddling Blue Water”!

TIME TO SNORKEL

Your guide will strategically locate a sandy spot on the floor of the ocean to safely set an anchor. To exit the kayak, simply slide off the side of your boat and become one with the ocean. Witness her beautiful fish, splendid corals, and Hawaiian Green sea turtles. Slide back onto your boat and paddle back to Makena Landing.

GREEN PADDLING |
BLUE WATER

Green Paddling Blue Water represents our core values of Sustainable Tourism and Education. We aim to operate our business in a way that ‘leaves no trace’ on the environment. On our tours, we promote the use of sun-protective clothing and hats to minimize the use of sunscreen which can have a damaging effect on our reefs. Please keep this in mind when preparing for your tour. If you must use sunscreen, please apply it before you arrive to allow sufficient time to soak into your skin.

My daughters were new to sea kayaking and had a fantastic time. Jason, our guide, had the right balance of safety, fun and local history.
