Makena Turtle Town Eco Adventure in Maui
Go in search of Hawaiian green sea turtles on this small-group Maui kayak and snorkel tour. Paddle from Makena toward Turtle Town, a snorkeling location along the island’s southern coast, and explore the calm, clear water to spot these beloved marine animals. You’ll be accompanied by a professional guide with lifeguard, CPR and first aid training.
What to Expect

Meet your professional guides and small group of 8 people or less at South Maui’s Makena Landing, where you’ll be provided with a kayak, snorkel gear, life jackets, bottled water, and a snack. Following a short safety briefing, you'll set out for a relaxing paddle along the coast, relishing the area’s calm, clear waters and stopping along the water to snorkel and observe local marine life.

You’re guaranteed to see some of Hawaii’s green sea turtles, along with occasional sightings of Manta and Eagle rays, octopus, eels, dolphins and even humpback whales (December - April).

After three hours exploring Turtle Town's underwater wonderland, your tour concludes back at Makena Landing.
