$99

Explore the rich waters and ancient lava flow of Pu’u Keka’a, also known as Black Rock


Eco-tours depart from the famous Black Rock, or Pu'u Keka'a as it was known in ancient Hawaii. Pu'u Keka'a is the most prominent natural feature in Ka'anapali created by an old lava flow that entered the sea hundreds of years ago. Ka'anapali Beach boasts an abundance of green sea turtles and tropical fish providing guests with an incredible snorkel and kayak experience. In addition, guests can experience a spectacular offshore perspective of the West Maui Mountains and views of neighbor islands Lana'i and Moloka'i while they learn about Hawaii’s rich history and culture.


Tours begin with a brief land lesson where guests learn basic safety and paddling techniques. Next, guides escort guests to the water and begin paddling towards Black Rock where guests will enjoy about 30 minutes of prime snorkeling. This iconic location is famous for its 60-foot sea cliffs visible only from the ocean. There, knowledgeable guides will share ancient Hawaiian history and local folklore as well as information on marine wildlife in the area. Between December through April guests may be able to enjoy whale watching as Humpback Whales make their seasonal migration from Alaska and travel to Maui and neighbor Hawaiian islands.

It was my first time visiting Maui and I decided to try out the Black Rock kayak and snorkeling tour. My guide was Joe and he was amazing! Full of interesting facts about the area and was great in directing and assisting the group. While snorkeling he even swam to the bottom and brought up some sea animals for us to take a closer look at. I'm thrilled with my experience and would definitely return for another tour or maybe a surf lesson.

We were met by Joe who guided us on our kayak adventure. As we were familiarizing ourselves witht he kayaks Joe gave us an overview and said how he hoped we could see some whales. We paddled out in the channel and almost immediately we saw spouting in the distance Paddling past the balck rock we saw a newborn whale and then its mother . We paused and were mesmerized. A chance of a lifetime as these magnificent critters came closer. I will never forget these moments of our trip. Absolutely magical. Joe is a true asset to the company. He is personable, professional and enthusiastic.
