In Maui we are lucky enough to have green sea turtles here year round, 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.
Makena Beach is on the south side of Maui, in the heart of turtle town, with rocky outcroppings and fantastic views of Haleakala. It offers maximum protection from the wind in the mornings as well and has been a guide favorite for years.
On the morning of your tour we will meet at the designated Makena meeting point and get all the waiver documents signed. Next we’ll set everyone up with a life jacket, paddle, kayak, snorkel, mask, fins and dry bag.
Before we hit the water we’ll start with a brief on land tutorial which will take you through the basics of kayaking, some pointers on paddling technique, rules and regulations and a rough plan of our itinerary for the morning. We should be heading into the water around 7:45am.
We’ll jump into our kayaks and push out into the ocean. We’ll focus on paddling through areas where green sea turtles and dolphins usually hang out. Keep your eyes open!
We’ll then paddle out together to the reef to find an excellent place just for us. We’ll drop anchor nearby and tie all the kayaks together so we can have a quick chat about what to expect on the guided snorkel tour.
Then it’s masks and fins on for your guided snorkel safari! After your snorkel we’ll jump back into the kayaks for a group debrief and a snack of delicious fresh Hawaiian Pineapple. Then, we’ll paddle back to the start point where your tour will conclude.
