Truly enjoyable! Fun ,our Hosts were terrific ! If anyone is even remotely concerned about stability on Water Bikes… don’t be ad they’re “rock solid”. Ease in operating & maneuvering… can’t go wrong! Give it a Shot!
A fun adventure.
Alison_P, Mar 2024
This was a really fun adventure. I found it to be relaxing and peaceful at times. The bike was easy to maneuver. The guys who helped us get into the water and one of them was our guide were great. I’d definitely do this again.

What an awesome way to get out on the water and see the ocean in the reefs. The guides were knowledgeable with lots of information about the island of Maui. It was fun to be out and cycling on the water.
Awesome adventure!

The staff was so attentive and informative. They were very concerned with our safety, especially as the beach was rocky. It was a fun adventure - we even saw whales! I would do it again.
Awesome Trip
Mark_S, Feb 2024
Awesome trip! The bikes were very sturdy and easy to move through the water. We only got wet up to our knees when we came back onshore. Our guide was very knowledgeable and shared a bit of history of the islands. Since we are in whale season, we saw a whale fully breach several times. The thrill of the trip was having a mom and her calf pass by near us then rest on the ocean floor below us. Luck was on our side. We highly recommend this trip.
Saw a whale in the distance!

This was sooooooo much fun!!! Seriously, I need one back home for the ocean lol. The bestie and I raced each other. These things glide like butter through the water. Really easy to maneuver. They have a pouch on the handlebars with water they provide and it still had room for my phone and sunscreen. We went out early when it was calm and not very hot. We saw a whale in the distance and that made for an even better trip! Tour guide was nice. He answered all questions and even gave recommendations on additional things to do in the area. En route, we were delayed a few minutes due to an accident on the other side of the island. The operator of the water bikes was very kind and told us to just keep him updated on if we would make it in time. Every time I come back, this will be on my list of activities to do! Sidenote - mosquitoes are bad along the rocks on the way down, so you may need bug spray. Once on the water, they were not a bother.
Awesome time!!

This was an AMAZING experience. We had such a great time. Guides were very knowledgeable and gave us lots of Hawaiian history as we made our way around. A MUST do, we will definitely do it again!!
Easy, fun, and relaxing!

Relaxing bike ride into the water was perfect! The company is family owned which is a bonus, and the tour guides were friendly and local so they had a lot of fun facts to share. Would highly recommend if you’re looking for a low key experience to get out in the water. Thank you so much!!!!
Relaxed, FUN and Unique experience! Must try!

My newlywed wife and I LOVED the water bike tour! We visited in November of 2022. The day we went out was windy with quite a bit of wake but the hosts were professional, experienced and made a day out of our conditions! 5/5 stars! Another thing - a photo was taken of us before we launched but we never got it - wondering if we can connect and get our photo as we're nearing our 1 year anniversay!!! Thanks!!
Great Activity

Response from Host, Nov 2023
We really appreciate your feedback! Thank you for such a great review!
Easy and fun
Kim_D, Oct 2023
It’s an easy biking, can go at your own pace. The seats aren’t much more comfortable than a traditional bike but do allow you to sit back in a more relaxed position. The crew is very friendly and give a little tour of the bay. We had a great time!
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Thank you so much for your review! We hope to see you again on a future trip! Mahalo!
Lots of fun!

The water bikes were great! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave a great history while zooming around on the water bikes. It was slow pace and great for anyone!!
A fun and relaxing way to spend the morning with awesome guides.
Jordan_S, Oct 2023
A sea turtle swam up to my waterbike. I really enjoyed how informative and laid back the guides were. Holding a sea urchin was really neat!
Great experience!
Amelia_A, Sep 2023
Love getting to hear the history and stories from our guide! So cool to hear folklore and his own stories from growing up on the island.
Bicycling the ocean
Connie_K, Sep 2023
It was a lot of fun bicycling the ocean. It was very easy to do and our tour guides gave us an interesting history of the island. I’d do it again.
Super nice views and the kids give us a nice tour
Cynthia_G, Sep 2023
Everything was fun and awesome Nice bikes Nice views We got there and the owners where ready fou our group
Ok Experience
jeffrey_S, Aug 2023
The staff were nice and helpful but this was just exercise. No way for the staff to provide input and commentary to all the participants since we were spread out. There is some interesting sites but only one or two got to hear it. I would suggest some sort of speaker on the bike so everyone can hear. Not sure what the answer is to fix it.
Fun and unique experience
Diane_E, Aug 2023
The guides were so friendly, Knowledgeable, and fun. They told us many fun folklore stories and Hawain history. Was a fun time and not hard to pedal. Excellent time
Must do
Becky_I, Aug 2023
The guides were amazing and so much fun to explore the water on the bikes.We even saw turtles and they come so close to you on the bikes.
Unique! Fun! Great service! Can’t find this activity too many places!
Brian_B, Jul 2023
This was one of our most favorite activities of my stay here in Maui! This is a small family-owned and run business and they are so friendly and kind. Good Hawaiian history and conversation. If you are looking for something unique, active and fun to do on the water, this is it.
