Experience America’s fastest growing outdoor sport, stand up paddle boarding (SUP), which originated in Hawaii. Easier than surfing, SUP boards are wider, thicker, and longer, and there’s no having to jump up onto a moving board!
Enjoy the calm, clear waters of Lahaina from the unique vantage point of standing on a large, sturdy board. You’ll not only get a nice workout and learn proper paddling techniques while maintaining balance, but you’ll join scenic views of West Maui and may encounter marine life such as monk seals. Due to the shallow water and the coral reef that rings Lahaina, your local guide will ensure you safely navigate the waters, including leading you to the gaps in the reef. Whether you are a beginner or more experienced, your 2 hour private tour will be personalized to you. Included in the lesson is the board & paddle, long sleeve UV rash guards, and reef shoes.
If possible, please choose a morning time (7:45, 9, or 10:30) since the conditions are usually better for SUP.
If you would like more than one private 1-on-1 sessions, you will need to complete checkout for the first one before booking each additional one.
Why we recommend this option over others
Review by TravelShack Team
- 2 hours long (some others are shorter for same price)
- Maximum of 5 students per instructor, so your private group will get another instructor if it's larger
- Almost all (90%) of instructors were born and raised on Maui so you get to know a true local
