We took Our first trip this year but it won't be our last- skilled knowledgeable guides made it particularly fun! Can't wait for next year to do it again!

This was our 2nd time and once again we had an awesome time. We accidentally Huli (capsized) the outrigger. But thanks to the quick thinking of our crew, we live and laugh another day just a bit soaked!!! We saw whales, pods of dolphins and turtles and our crew (especially Uncle Willy) made the trip fun, even with the unexpected/surprising HULI! One of us was brave enough to jump from Black Rock, and since one of us had never seen a sea turtle they made sure to find some for her. Mahalo for the adventure and we will definitely be doing this again!!!

Loved it, Loved it, Loved it! If I can rate a 10, I would! My family's first time visiting and the staff was amazing! Great tour, great people, great time! Definitely coming back and making them my GO TO Outrigger Canoe!

What a beautiful day! A perfect end to our trip. This was our first time on the outriggers after years of coming to Maui! We will be back for sure. Our guides Pono and Christian were so friendly, personable and knowledgeable. They made the trip!
I come to Ka’anapali yearly and have always walked past the outrigger canoes near the Westin Villas. I thought it would be too difficult for me. Well, I was wrong. I tried it today and it was an absolute blast. I stared out nervous but my fears quickly disappeared. I was comfortable every second of the trip. And the trip was AMAZING. The water was gorgeous. The coastline was gorgeous. The rowing was fun. And the sea life was spectacular. Our guides were so informative, skilled and fun. Thank you Wahi, Smokey and Jason. We had a great time and next year we’ll be back with the rest of the family.

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and had the pleasure of going on Ali’i Maui’s Canoes. We had the best time, getting to see sea turtles coming right up to the canoe! The water was so beautiful and clear we could see everything underneath us! Kristian was so informative and helping us to better understand the Hawaiian culture. We loved that this was a family business, and everyone was so amazing! We can’t wait to come back to Maui and we will definitely be doing this excursion again!!
This is my 5th time here in Kaanapali. I've seen this canoe and had told myself I will do this when I come back. After all, they have this at WestIn Kaanapali's backyard. Today we did it. Thankfully I had the guts to do as I have anxiety with water. Jason and Kj were awesome guides, steersman and leaders of our trip. It was me my husband, 1 other older couple .I had put on life jacket for my peace of mind. Calm til we got to Black Rock. Our team was in sync to get pass Black rock.. so awesome. Jason and Kj Mahalo! Guys da best

We love Ali'i Maui. The staff was amazing- so positive and upbeat. They were very experienced and made the trip safe, comfortable and fun!!! We definitely would recommend them for all travelers.

Jamie and his crew are the best! My wife and I go out on the water with them EVERY time on our annual trip to Maui. This time we had Jamie as steersman and Jason up front but we've had great crew every time. Beautiful views, funny banter and interesting information about the islands and Hawaiian culture every time. They are also sensitive to special requests due to major back surgeries and recent knee replacements, to make sure everyone has a fun and comfortable experience. Ask me how I know! They always treat us like Ohana and I can't imagine paddling with anyone else. Mahalo Ali'i Maui Outriggers. A hui ho...

So much fun!! This is the second time we've paddled with Ali'i. A great outdoor family experience for everyone. This is a must do activity for our family every time in Maui. The team is extremely friendly and willing to share the Hawaiian culture with everyone. The view of the island is breathtaking from the outrigger. Can't wait for paddle out with them!!

The best family activity in Maui . Their location is great and there is easy parking either at the Westin or at Kahekili Beach Park. If you park at Kahekili just walk towards the boardwalk then head towards Dukes restaurant. It's way before dukes but I'm just using that as a point of reference. It's a couple mile paddle towards black rock and back . You have time to dip in for a swim or swim to black rock to jump off . Make sure your wearing water shoes if your jumping off . It's our 3rd time with them and have a great time every time . Highly recommend.

Awesome outrigger trip. We went with another family and were in two outriggers together. Smokey and Jamie were so much fun. Jason and May were the guides in our friends boat and they were awesome too. I would highly recommend and we will definitely do it again. Thanks for a great time guys!!!

BEST MAUI ACTIVITY EVER!!!! We had an absolute blast on our canoe trip yesterday! There were two guides for only three passengers on each canoe. The crew told stories of the history of their beloved Hawaii, and they had us in hysterics from the get-go. They were incredibly attentive with much care and attention to safety. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

What an amazing trip this morning! The crew was the best part, had us laughing most of the time but also shared a lot of knowledge about the islands. Was such a great trip and saw a handful of turtles as well. One of the best adventures we took on our trip at a very reasonable cost. Can’t wait to come back. Thank you Jamie and Jason!

Our family just returned from a great week at Maui. We took our kids whale watching and my wife and I tried out the e-foils, but hands down the 90 minutes we spent with Jason and KJ in the outrigger was our favorite. Our kids had so much fun paddling, and the conversation with Jason and KJ were enjoyable and informative. We also liked the banter with the two other boats that went out the same time we did. We quickly learned that the crew on all three boats competed professionally and did Inter island open water rowing competitions. They were very safety focused and when the winds picked up quickly we were all at ease given their experience and training. The boats were fantastic and in great racing condition. I wish we would have done this at the start of our trip and then gone again right before again leaving. We met Ali one morning and he was so accommodating - we weren’t sure if our kids would enjoy going and how safe it would be in mixed conditions. They figured a way for us to go with our entire family in a very stable outrigger - and close enough to the shoreline to avoid the high winds, but our far enough it was an adventure. Again, I can’t speak highly enough of everyone we meet with crew and company.

We had a great time! Gail and Jason were very knowledgeable and fun to be with. Such a nice morning ride!

My sister, father and I were referred to to this company to do a special spreading of the ashes service for our mother by our concierge. Jamie contacted us back within 5 minutes. They said they would be more than honored to do this for us. We met with him this morning and he and his son were so friendly. They blessed the outrigger and even provided leis for all of us. They were extremely professional and also quite humorous. Jamie gave us a brief lesson on how to get in the outrigger and also provided us with history of the island. He called my dad uncle which is a sign of respect and called my mom auntie. They treated us like we were part of their family. We got into the water and set off to a sacred place where we put our mother's ashes and put the leis into the ocean. It was a very spiritual experience for all of us. Definitely recommend them.
Absolutely the best! The crew is amazing and helpful. Jamie is wonderful with children! I honestly can’t say enough good things. The experience my grandkids had has left a memory they will never forget! Highly recommend and can’t wait to be back to do it again!

Wonderful paddle with this crew. Down to Black Rock and back. They made plenty of time for swimming, when we asked for it, and had a lot of Maui history stories along the ride. Definitely recommend.
Alii Maui outrigger canoe trip was excellent! The crew took us out and cannot say enough about the experience!! They were professional, fun and very knowledgeable! We had a beautiful morning on the water with them and would recommend them if you would like to experience the beauty of Maui from the water and get a little workout.

Second time out and it was just as fun as the first! Saw some whales, chatted with the guys, and learned some history along the way. Great time and will make it out a third time I'm sure!
An amazing experience! The guides were entertaining and called us by name so that it was a personal experience. They were energetic and shared so much about the Hawaiian culture. Mahalo!!!
This was our second time with Ali'i Outriggers and we were not disappointed. They are fun, interesting, informative and friendly. Would highly recommend, great morning!
Had a blast paddling with these guys! Entertaining and informative!
So much fun. Mare and the crew (Vai et al) were so accommodating. Their base was just outside our room at the Maui Westin Resort. We set out early 7:30 am as we had to leave for a flight that day, and they were great. And as part of the "NDA," we cannot talk about what we saw (lots of water and blue skies for sure!), it was such an amazing experience! It was a great end to our Maui trip.
More fun than snorkeling...great group of guys.
Loved it! It’s a great way to start the day and earn those cold drinks poolside. We were lucky enough to have a real life Pro on our trip. Thanks guys! Can’t wait to take you up on your offer to row over to Lanai!! CrossFit got me ready!!
Thanks so much, I had the BEST time! It was fun, informative, met nice people and got some excersise. Lovely family run business. I could go again tomorrow!
Jamie and the crew are the best!
100% a must! This was fantastic, the guides were amazing and very knowledgeable. We’ve used them several times and we’re returning in two week bringing family and this was the first thing to do on our list!!
Had the best time! Great guides that shared lots of cultural history. Will definitely be back on our next trip to Maui! Thank you for an unforgettable trip!
So much fun every time! Great local history, fun guides, turtles, even dolphins sometimes! This is the one thing we do in every trip to Maui!
