Embark on a boat tour of turtle town in Maui's only glass bottom kayaks and witness the variety of diverse marine life.


  • Marvel at the natural biodiversity
  • See sea turtles in their natural habitat
  • Enjoy the calm on the water
  • Have some fun with your squirt gun
  • Chance a glimpse of seasonal whales


Leave dry land behind and sail around Makena Landing, also known locally as “Turtle Town”. Feast your eyes on the incredible biodiversity of green sea turtles and reef fish, as well as the occasional manta and spotted eagle rays, octopi, dolphins, monk seals, humpback whales (December through April) and little white-tip reef sharks. The entire rental process takes 2 hours. Normal time to get checked in, waivers signed, provide paddle and safety instruction as well as an overview of the area is 5-15 min depending on your group. You will then have the remainder of your reserved time to paddle the waters far from the tourist crowds, paddling where you want on a steady and easy-to-use kayak. The more you take your time, the more you're likely to see!
