Surfing, Paddleboarding, and Kayaking on Maui

Surfing, Paddleboarding, and Kayaking on Maui

Maui has long been known as a surfing destination, though it’s an equally great place to kayak or try your hand at stand-up paddleboarding, a water sport that’s gained popularity over the past few years. Here are some of your options.

Surfing

With surfing conditions suited to all abilities—and a surf school on almost every beach—Maui is a great place to hit the waves, whether you’re a novice or a professional. For an introduction to surfing basics, sign up for a beginner class or enhance existing skills during a multi-day workshop.

Paddleboarding

With calm waters ideal for paddleboarding, Hawaii is the perfect place to try your hand at this popular new watersport. To maximize your time in Maui, sign up for a tour that combines paddleboarding with multiple snorkel stops. 

Kayaking

Sea kayaking has long been a favorite Hawaiian pastime, and for good reason; it's a great way to achieve unobstructed views of the coastline and increase your chances of spotting whales and dolphins. Some kayaking tours offer the option to paddle out to remote beaches or stop at the reef for world-class snorkeling.
