South Maui Turtle Town Kayak and Snorkel


Water Activities

Your PRIVATE kayak tour will launch from historic Makena Landing in the center of Turtle Town where you’ll have iconic Haleakala in the background. With dozens of independent reefs throughout Turtle Town, your kayak guide will lead you away from the crowds to snorkel with green Hawaiian Sea Turtles. This South Maui location includes some reefs with underwater caves and arches commonly known as “Five Caves” and “Turtle Arches.” These reefs and many others in Turtle Town have resident sea turtles who can be found year round, if you know exactly where to look and our guides will lead you there. As you kayak along the Makena and Wailea coast you’ll enjoy scenic views of Puu Olai, Molokini Crater, Lanai, Mauna Kahalawai (West Maui Mountains) and Kahoolawe. During Maui’s windy summer months, Turtle Town is usually protected from the wind in early mornings making this the ideal summer location. Shallow, well-lit reefs and calm conditions make this a great location year round for families with small children and first time ocean enthusiasts, but don’t let that deter you if you’re an active traveler, Turtle Town offers something for everyone!
