West Shore Adventure
Pronounced Kuh-lee-ees, Kelii’s Kayaks were the first company to kayak from Ukumehame Beach Park. This launch point allows access to the Pali and Coral Gardens. Coral Gardens is where most Maui snorkeling snorkel in the afternoon. Keliis Kayaks snorkels and paddles this area in the morning when the winds are at their calmest. And, there’s no other kayaks or charters boats in the vicinity, so you get the place all to yourself. Coral Gardens is shallow, teeming with marine life and boasts some of the most colorful reefs in Maui. It’s a great snorkel site and hard to get to without a boat or kayak. The fish vary in size from small aquarium fish to some that are bigger than footballs. Occasionally you may see something larger. There are no turtles at Coral Gardens, but there are some outside the beach park which you should see during your paddle. In the winter months from December 15th through April 15th, during whale season, you may even have a whale watching experience that will be up close and personal. Seeing a Humpback Whale cruising next to or beneath your kayak is an occurrence that you will never forget.

South Shore Paddle

This is where it all began for Keliis Kayaks. It’s their signature tour and the most popular Maui kayak activity on the island. There is no shortage of good reviews for this Maui kayak adventure. TripAdvisor, Yelp and a host of other review websites are filled with reviews from visitors who had an exceptional time with Kelii’s. During your Maui kayaking tour, you will snorkel with the green sea turtles, frolic with 100’s of different species of fish on unspoiled reefs. Sometimes during the winter months, you may even have a humpback whale join your group. The whale watching season on Maui begins in mid-December and concluding in mid-April. Don’t be surprised if that magic moment unfolds during the paddle. Makena is a magical place with its rugged coastline, dry climate and with cinder cones reaching to the sky covered in Oheo Trees, it’s always sunny in Makena. I have always enjoyed this area of Maui. Most visitors flock to the rainforests or snorkel at Molokini, Makena Landing is an afterthought or completely unknown to most travelers to Maui. The big attraction in Makena is Big Beach which is several miles south. If you are seeking something remote, yet in the thick of things, then kayaking Makena is a perfect option to escape.

Tyler is an amazing guide and teacher. If you are uncomfortable with swimming in deep water or water phobia, he is the man to go to for this activity. This was my first time snorkeling and I am not a swimmer. yet I enjoyed snorkeling to the fullest and saw three turtles. I highly recommend Tyler.

My husband and I enjoyed our morning kayak tour with Kelli’s! Our guide was energetic and knowledgeable. He gave clear instructions to guide us safely.

Overall, we had a great time!

Curtis our guide was fantastic. Made me feel super comfortable even though I never used a kayak before. He took us to all the great hot spots saw whales one with is mother, saw a monk seal on the endangered species list and he took us to one of the best snorkel spots I’ve ever been to in my life. His knowledge of the area was amazing so learned a lot too! All that and got some exercise in. So much better than a boat with 50 people on it I liked the personal touch made us feel like he was our own private local guide! Great job, really nice to see businesses like this!

Jeremiah was an excellent guide. I had only kayaked a couple of times prior and he made me feel at ease. The snorkeling portion of the trip was very enjoyable as well. We saw multiple turtles. Jeremiah also shared alot of information about the islands. Best excursion trip of our vacation.

Tyler did a wonderful job on our kayaking and snorkeling trip. He was awesome teaching snorkeling to someone in our group who had been very afraid, helping break it down into easy steps to get them comfortable in the water. He was also able to get us over a whale which swam around our kayaks and was very majestic.

Wow what an amazing tour! Totally worth the money and time. Curtis was great with the kayak and snorkeling. Pasco was awesome with the hike and waterfall tour. Bring athletic water shoes for the entire excursion. Snacks, water and light lunch provided. Also bring bug repellent and a towel. Rain jackets were also provided. I had an adventurous time.
