"Never-Ever" done it before?  This one's for you!  This IS our Beginner Class… Cruise through the heart of "Turtle Town" while learning to Paddle like a Pro!

Stand-up paddleboarding was born in Hawaii out of surfing. This beginner tour introduces newbies to the sport. You’ll begin with a brief lesson on shore before venturing into the water. Your guide will lead you to a sea turtle area along the Wailea-Makena shoreline. You’ll be treated to a fresh fruit picnic on the water in view of Maui’s dramatic Haleakala crater.


What to Expect
All of our Private Guided Tours include:
  • Expert ocean guide with a great attitude and a smile!
  • Meet at Polo Beach Public Parking Lot
  • White Sandy Beach beach entry. No rocks or coral!
  • Ocean-trained/CPR/First Aid Certified Guide
  • Fresh fruit and water on the ocean
  • Fresh fluffy towels on the shore
  • Bathrooms and outdoor showers
  • Never a crowd. This is the only guided excursion at this location!
You will meet your guide in the beautiful Polo Beach Public Park.  There you will have your land lesson and head to the shoreline for some awesome fun. Paddleboarding in the heart of "Turtle Town".

You have a high Guide to Guest Ratio to ensure the "5 Star" experience that you are looking for.  Your adventurous 3-year old can even join in the adventure on the board of one of our Guides (with a life vest that will be provided).  Babysitting at it's best, so you can enjoy the adventure to it's fullest!
