Our ride was cancelled after a short time (about fifteen minutes) because it was too choppy on the waves. The folks said we should get reimbursed, as the activity ended up being very short. I haven't pursued this with you, as it was fun while it lasted (although I wouldn't object to getting a refund. of course!). It would have been even nicer if we had been able to do some paddling, but I understand that this was impossible given that the waves were pretty big and the wind was strong.
Everyone should do this and we will definitely repeat this adventure!
Went way beyond our expectations! Sage was awesome. I think he has convinced my daughter to go to college in Hawaii!!
Perhaps letting passengers paddle to try it out.
One of the most enjoyable activities that we have done in our four trips to Hawaii.
A gem of an experiance and guide.
This is the most uniquely Hawaiian eco tour on Maui. Sail into Hawaii's ancient past aboard the Hawaiian Sailing Canoe ‘Hina'. No where else on Maui can you sail aboard a Hawaiian Sailing Canoe or "waapea" with an experienced, knowledgeable crew born and raised right here in Hawaii paddling, sailing, surfing, and fishing.
Your adventure starts on Polo Beach in beautiful Wailea, Maui, where you'll learn first-hand about ancient Hawaiian sailing canoe tradition, construction and navigation. You then launch the Hawaiian Sailing Canoe "Hina" straight from the beach - just like the Hawaiians did in ancient times - and sail on the gentle Wailea breeze for a unique perspective of the island of Maui.
Learn to Paddle or Just Relax & Enjoy
You'll see all kinds of ocean life like turtles, dolphins and whales while learning about this beautiful part of Hawaii where you can simultaneously see four of the Hawaiian Islands. Up for some action? Be part of the crew and learn how to paddle a canoe the Hawaiian way. Or just relax and take it all in. Lay out on our super comfortable trampolines and let the wind do all the work.
We can only take up to six passengers at a time so you are guaranteed to have a very personal, intimate, and charming Maui ocean activity.
