Hawaiian Paddle Sports, LLC
Hawaii, United States
Service with Minor Environmental Footprint
Maui-based Hawaiian Paddle Sports is Hawaii’s premier ocean activity company. From Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe and Ocean Kayak Tours to private Surf and Stand Up paddle board lessons, Hawaiian Paddle Sports provides guests with unique, authentic, and intimate ocean experiences. Through its variety of ocean activities, Hawaiian Paddle Sports empowers thousands of guests each year to develop a deeper connection to Maui and the marine environment. Recognizing the importance of creating a sustainable, marine-based eco-tourism model, Hawaiian Paddle Sports launched in 2010 as a company committed to reducing its environmental impact and promoting sustainable practices within Maui’s tourism sector. Through private tours, professional guides, true ecotourism, and a commitment to community, Hawaiian Paddle Sports not only provides an unparalleled guest experience, but also supports the local community and a healthy ocean ecosystem. As an ocean-based activities company, Hawaiian Paddle Sports makes its living off of the ocean. We therefore recognize the importance of giving back to both the environment and community, while also taking care of our employees. We became a B Corp to not only solidify these components within our business, but also act as model for eco-tourism.
