This family-owned and -operated outfitter runs kayak and snorkeling tours, whale-watching excursions, and surf lessons in the calm, turquoise bays of South Maui. In addition to helping visitors enjoy the water, the staff here teach them how to protect it, sharing info about ocean conservation as well as Maui’s unique culture and language. Tropical Outfitters keeps groups small in order to ensure a personal, relaxing experience, but also offers private tours so guests can customize their day exactly to their liking. Book the signature kayak tour to paddle around Turtle Town, explore coral reefs, and swim with Hawaiian green sea turtles, or kick things up a notch with the eight-mile Molokini adventure, during which you’ll get to snorkel inside a volcanic crater.
