Tour Details
Tour Details

If you are looking for a small-group experience exploring the Maui ocean reefs and beautiful sights, you will find this Kelii's Kayak tour off of Maui's south shores the perfect option. This exquisite adventure departs from Makena Landing, about five minutes south of the Wailea resort area, an area famous for its proximity to Turtle Arches, a reef made famous for being home to the "honu", or Hawaiian Sea Turtles.

Joining Kelii's Kayaks for a guided kayaking excursion is a very smart decision. The waters around Maui are beautiful, but can also be dangerous for those who are not aware of ocean currents and prevailing trade winds. Your guides are very experienced and have been paddling around Maui for years, so you can rest assured you will be participating in a fun and safe activity.

Prior to taking off paddling to encounter the turtles your guides will give the group a beachside safety paddling class, to go over important information about your tour so you can paddle and snorkel safely. They will also be fitting you for your snorkeling gear and kayak, and assist you with your launch. They will accompany you for the entire journey to make sure you are safe. You will find this course to be fairly easy, whether you are a first-time paddler or snorkeler.

After some exploring, you will arrive at one of many tropical reefs for about 40 minutes in the water. Although part of the package, snorkeling is optional. With that said, we believe it to be an incredible part of this adventure. Those who might not feel comfortable in the water can use one of the floatation devices available. They are a big help to take away some of the fear and allow for a stress-free time exploring the beautiful ocean reefs. During the snorkel stop your guide will offer a light snack and beverages. Next, you will paddle back to the starting point with a huge smile on your face and memories that will last you a lifetime!
