TURTLE REEF DISCOVERY
Our kayak tours in South Maui are from Makena Landing. Located just minutes south of Kihei, Wailea and Makena, this area is considered by many as the premier location on Maui for Kayaking and Snorkeling. Regardless of where your lodging is, Makena should be your first choice for the best experience.
Makena Bay is our destination and this area is famous for the Green Sea Turtle population, exceptional paddling conditions and just an overall great area to visit. Home to “Turtle Town”, Makena is consistently the most reliable spot for sunshine, calm waters, exceptional snorkeling with a large turtle population and during whale season, sightings and encounters extraordinaire.
So many folks realize the gem Makena is for sunshine, warmth, snorkeling, that the drive from West Maui is done without a second thought. We always love Makena for the special place it is.

Makena Landing is one of Maui’s best snorkeling spots with its gentle ocean conditions, gorgeous coastline and underwater reefs and excellent variety of unique sea life. While close to Wailea and Kihei, visitors drive all the way from Lahaina and Ka`anapali as it is known for being one of Maui’s best spots for snorkeling. Home to a high concentration of Hawaiian Green Sea turtles (honu), the area not far from Makena Landing is called “Turtle Town”, where rays, Dolphins and the Hawaiian monk seal are commonly spotted as well. During whale season (October thru April) you will have the opportunity to see Humpback whales during their annual migration to the Islands to mate and give birth.
