I’ve been interested in Stand-Up Paddle for a number of years and decided to take a lesson/tour with Tim on a recent trip to Maui. He was a great guide and teacher, respecting my skill level, balancing adventure and safety, and offering great information not only on our activity but on other aspects of Hawaii and the sea. He showed on time, was courteous and a pleasure to spend time with. Mahalo Nui Loa, Tim!

“We wanted to get away from the crowds and the many tourist traps associated with the big boat companies. Tim took us out early morning and within 1/2 an hour we were swimming with turtles with no one else around us. Tim’s excursions are a unique uncluttered experience and you can bet that anytime I’m anywhere near the Hawaii Islands, I will be contacting Tim with the primary purpose of having a unique experience”
“The turtles were huge and amazing and I truly enjoyed the time I spent snorkeling around them. I had a superb time and would recommend Tim as a guide/instructor anytime. He’s amazing!! I even learned some Hawaiian language. Next time I come back, I think I’ll stand up paddle.”

“We even got to spot some wales! Tim was the best tour guide anyone could ask for. New to this type of adventure, he made me feel completely comfortable before even getting into the water. His knowledge about the ocean and water sports seemed endless. Not only did I learn so many new things on the tour, but I have the treasure that I can take with me for a lifetime — the memory of a both exhilarating and serene experience that nothing else will ever come close to replacing! ”

“Fantastic experience – thank you Laurie!
My husband and I decided to give SUP a try while in Maui. We booked a private lesson. The weather hadn’t been great, but the morning of our lesson was warm, but very overcast. We had a great time! It was harder than it looks. We enjoyed our time with Laurie very much! She was a great teacher. Patient, kind, and very personable. We enjoyed chatting to her. We appreciated getting the pictures from her – as you can’t take cameras etc with you (they wouldn’t last long as beginners). We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hours, and would definitely recommend this company, and Laurie as an instructor! Definitely a must do in Maui! Give it a shot !”
