Maui Stand Up Paddle Boarding Options

South Maui SUP Lesson / Tour

Stand Up Paddle Boarding from Makena on Maui’s sunny south shore, commonly referred to as Turtle Town, you’ll have the beautiful back drop of Haleakala. On normal trade wind days South Maui is blocked from the wind in the early mornings making it an ideal location for SUP lessons. Even if the winds do start to blow, Makena Bay is generally protected allowing us to tuck inside away from the wind. As you glide across the glassy calm waters you’ll enjoy stunning views of Molokini Crater, Pu`u Olai, Kahoolawe, Lana`i and Mauna Kahalawai or the West Maui Mountains as we commonly refer to them today. But don’t forget to look down! While stand up paddle boarding, Maui reef structure below amazes you with green Hawaiian sea turtles and tropical fish on a clear day. Although this location is closest to our guests staying in Makena, Wailea, Kihei and Maalaea, check with our management team for current weather conditions to determine the ideal location for your Stand up Paddle Boarding Lesson. This location is generally perfect for families and first time stand up paddle boarders.

“SUP Experience”

We knew we could rent standup paddleboards from a variety of places and figure out how to do it on our own, but after looking over Hawiian Paddle Sports’ website we decided to spend the money and have a private lesson to get us started. From start to finish we felt like we made the right choice. They were professional and our instructor, Jason, was great. We met him at an idealic little cove in Makena that was perfect! It was so beautiful we even went back for a late afternoon picnic at the same spot! Jason was really nice, explained everything along the process so we could understand, made us feel safe, and told us interesting facts about the area, turtles, etc. Extra bonus was he brought a camera to take pictures of us and now we can download them for free off the email link that HPS sent to us. Overall, we would highly recommend HPS to anybody!

Kapalua SUP Maui Lesson / Tour

Kapalua Bay is a gorgeous little bay on Northwest side of Maui. Although it is somewhat protected from the wind, this area of the island can be a challenging location for first time Stand Up Paddlers. During the winter months Kapalua is often grey and sometimes rainy, also there is the possibility of large surf. During the summer months there is less chance of rain but usually strong winds. Although we are usually successful at this location with most of our guests, we like to be up front about the weather conditions that sometimes create challenges here. Our knowledgeable staff can steer you in the right direction for your lesson based on weather and your experience level. For guests staying on west Maui in Lahaina, Kahana, Kapalua, Napili or Kaanapali, we are happy to offer several West Maui options for your SUP lesson.

“Not to be Missed”

I was very fortunate that the activity director at the Montage directed me to this company for my stand up paddle lesson at Kapalua Bay. These folks are great! This is local people doing and teaching what they love and giving us tourists a taste of how those fortunate enough to live on Maui do things. My instructor was exceedingly patient and in spite of my physical limitations got me up and running well before the 2 hour session ended

West Maui SUP Tour / Lesson

During the winter months, when Maui experiences lighter winds, Olowalu is a great location for a Stand Up Paddle Board Lesson. Paddle over the shallow reef structure teeming with tropical fish and green Hawaiian sea turtles while enjoying the stunning back drop of Olowalu and Ukumehame Valleys. Looking around you’ll see Haleakala, Molokini Crater and all the islands of Maui Nui: Maui, Kahoolawe, Lanai and Molokai. You’ll even see the Big Island of Hawaii on a clear day! This is a great SUP lesson location when weather is good but challenging if the winds are blowing too strong or from the wrong direction. This is the closest location for those guests staying in Lahaina and Kaanapali but check with our management team to see if Olowalu would be a good choice for your groups Stand Up Paddle Boarding Lesson based on weather and experience.

“Worth every penny”

I was VERY apprehensive about SUP, but trusted TripAdvisor & booked our lesson with Laurie. So very glad I did. She was so helpful & totally in tune with helping me overcome my fear of trying to balance on a wobbly board floating in deep water. Yay! I stood up and only fell in once. I would highly recommend Laurie & Hawaiian Paddle Sports to anyone who wants to deal with an ethical, Eco-friendly & very professional business. And the pictures Laurie took are amazing! Emailed quickly & at no additional cost.
