Makena Bay Kayaking and Snorkeling

Makena Bay is our kayaking and snorkeling destination, famous for the Green Sea Turtle population and exceptional paddling conditions.. Not far from Makena Landing is an area called “Turtle Town”. Turtle Town is the home to a high concentration of Hawaiian Green Sea turtles (honu’s). It is very common here to also see rays and dolphins as well as the Hawaiian monk seal. 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.

Makena Whale Watch

Makena Whale Watch

During whale season, our Turtle Reef Discovery activity becomes our Whale Watch tour! This is a really inspiring trip! There is nothing like viewing a Humpback Whale from ocean level in a kayak, it’s a breathtaking experience! Whales seem to appreciate the quietness of a kayak compared to a boat and they tend to approach us more. (Of course, we don’t approach them, they approach us!!). This is one of our more popular trips during whale season and we’ll make sure to sneak in some snorkeling time with the sea turtles.
