Paddleboard over the pristine Wailea Coastline off Makena Landing in the heart of “Turtle Town.” Then, swim with turtles and explore the beautiful underwater world around Maui’s South Shore. Our 2-hour tour includes a snorkel lesson for beginners as well as fruit to snack on while we paddle around “Hawaiian Turtle Town.” You’ll never forget your first-time snorkeling experience!

In this 2 hour tour, you’ll not only learn to stand up paddleboard on the pristine Wailea Coastline off Makena Landing in the heart of “Turtle Town,” but you’re also given a fresh fruit picnic  ”on the ocean” and a guided snorkel around looking for turtles or “HONU.” 

Get out and explore the seas with our SUP “Turtle Town” Snorkel Makena Landing – Wailea/Makena. Taste the adventure of a lifetime without ever getting your feet wet! Beginners will learn to Stand Up Paddleboard and snorkel simultaneously, combining two favorite activities into one epic journey on our 2-hour ride. During this experience, you’ll stop for fresh fruit on an ocean picnic before heading back to shore, where we’ll look for Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles in their natural habitat. Your instructor will give an educational lecture about sea turtles while scanning the sea lettuce beds for these fantastic creatures in an Eco-friendly environment that encourages coral reef restoration. 

Are you ready for your vacation? Want to experience the real Makena, how Hawaii was meant to be seen – from land and sea. The SUP “Turtle Town” Snorkel offers an excellent vantage point of natural beauty in a safe and exciting environment. This is a perfect option for beginners and children; learn about paddling techniques, currents, take turns (safely) navigating from land to water on our beginner lesson or have it all done by one of our experienced guides/instructors who will show what’s up with safety in mind. Two hours includes snorkeling time plus fresh fruit “on ocean” picnic lunch! Aloha!
