Maui Eco Tours and Lessons
Snorkeling and Kayaking
Whether you’re a pro on the water or have never been in a kayak before, Maui Eco Tours’ instructors will guide you through the pristine Pacific Ocean. In this intimate group setting, you’ll explore areas that larger tour groups are unable to access. You’ll even have up-close encounters with tropical fish, sea turtles, stingrays, and other marine life. If you’re visiting Maui in the months of December through April, keep your eyes out for majestic humpback whales that migrate to Hawaii each year to mate.
All tours are family friendly! Choose from the “Intro” excursion if you’re a first-time kayaker or head out on the “Adventure” tour for an hour-long paddle with more snorkeling opportunities. For the most challenging and unpredictable journey, opt for the “Escapade” available during the months of June, July, and August.
Snorkel & kayak tours depart from three locations: Makena Beach Park (South Maui), which has a high concentration of Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles and is known as one of the best snorkeling spots on the island; Ukumehame Beach Park (West Maui), an area with a diverse reef; and DT Fleming Beach Park (northwest Maui), the launch point for the summer “Escapade” tour.
Trek through five different climate zones on your way to the top of Haleakala, a dormant volcano whose name means “House of the Sun.” Legend says that this is where demigod Maui captured the sun with a rope as it traversed across the sky, slowing it down and extending the daylight. Now, the summit is known as an ideal viewing spot for one of the most incredible sunrises in the world.
Though this hike is accessible to individuals, Maui Eco Tours has private guides that will help you explore remote areas. You can pick what you want to see, and your guide will lead you through all that Haleakala has to offer – from dense bamboo forests to historic lava fields.
Surf and SUP Lessons
Head to Kalama Beach Park to master the art of two popular Maui water activities: surfing and paddleboarding! Known for its easy, mellow waves, this stretch of beach on the south end of the island is an excellent spot for first-time surfers. The gentle waves and lack of wind also provide great conditions for paddleboarders. As you learn the fundamentals, enjoy incredible views of Haleakala, the West Maui Mountains, and Molokini Crater. Maui Eco Tours offers groups, semi-private, and private lessons.
Windsurfing and Kiteboarding Lessons
Have you always wanted to try windsurfing or kiteboarding? Maui Eco Tours is here to help you check that off your bucket list! Experienced instructors provide safe and helpful training to guarantee a fun, exhilarating experience. You’ll glide over the clear waters of Kanaha Beach Park as the wind catches the sail of your windsurfing board.
If you’re a true adventure seeker, try kiteboarding and a let a giant airborne kite pull you through the water. Instructors will teach you the basics of board control, kite flying, and safety tips.
