Located in South Maui and part of Makena Landing Park, you'll find launches by local kayak fishermen and hobie catamaran sailors.
After pushing off from Makena Landing, it’s not far to Turtle Town. However, these two places should not be confused as just two parts of the same route.
Another calm water option is Lahaina, which sits just south of Lahaina Town.
Kaneohe Bay is the only bay with a coral reef and sits close to Moloka’i Island for competent kayakers of all skills.
Moving north-west on the island of Maui, we move up to Olowalu, which is another reef location with excellent spots to kayak.
A popular spot with locals and secluded enough that it’s less known to tourists is Hanakao’o Beach Park.
Starting at Pulau beach and running to the Pali lighthouse along sea cliffs that protect areas that aren't accessible by land.
This protected volcanic atoll is part of the State Marine Life & Bird Sanctuary, and the Molokini crater offers a few options for kayakers.
Maui’s West Shore is home to calm and clear waters that are perfect for a day out at sea.
