Ka’anapali Surf Club’s Outrigger Canoe Experience departs from The Westin Maui Resort & Spa, located in the heart of Ka’anapali near the famous Black Rock. Voted #1 Beach by Conde Nast, Ka’anapali Beach boasts an abundance of green sea turtles and tropical fish, providing you with a great view from the canoe.

In addition, you can experience a spectacular off-shore perspective of the West Maui Mountains and views of neighbor islands Lana’i and Moloka’i while you learn about Hawaii’s rich history and culture.

Our Outrigger Canoe Experience begins with a brief land lesson where you learn basic safety and paddling techniques. Shortly after the land lesson, guides escort you to the water and begin paddling along the Ka’anapali coastline north towards Black Rock or south towards the beautiful reefs of Mala. In addition to a one-of-a-kind paddling experience, our knowledgeable guides share ancient Hawaiian history and local folklore as well as information on marine wildlife in the area.

Between January 1 and April 1, you may be able to enjoy whale watching as humpback whales make their seasonal migration from Alaska and travel along Maui and neighbor Hawaiian islands.

Seeing a humpback whale from an outrigger canoe is an epic adventure that the whole family can experience together. All ages are welcome, from kids to grandparents and from adventure enthusiasts to first-timers. No experience is necessary. This trip is designed to whale watch, so if you would like to add some snorkeling, we suggest a private tour.
