$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.

We did the Black Rock Eco Kayak Tour through the Ka'anapali Surf Club to Black Rock on the west side of Maui. There were just the two of us, so essentially we got the private tour for the price of the group tour. I have worked with trainers much of my professional life, and Joe has the skills and knowledge of an excellent trainer/instructor. We received good instructions on kayaking and general safety considerations, and then Joe gave us good feedback while we kayaked to Black Rock. Following the trip around Black Rock, Joe beached our kayaks and gave us a brief snorkelling overview and we were off to see and experience a variety of marine life in their natural habital including an Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, Sea Urchins and an Hawaiian Octopus. We snorkelled on the surface and Joe did the diving to point out all the wildlife. It was both enjoyable and instructive. This was our third visit to Maui, and we learned more about marine life in this two-hour tour than we had in all our previous visits. Thanks to Joe

We met our guide Joe at the Black Rock Kayak & Snorkel just before 8 am at the stand near the beach and within minutes were briefed, suited up and heading out to the Black Rock. Had a short but fun kayak and then over an hour of snorkeling which was spectacular. Lots of colorful fish and many sea turtles, close enough to touch but we refrained from doing that. Joe could free dive and we were able to briefly hold a fat and healthy seastar while he scouted out various things to show us. We kayaked back to the place we started and it was a great 2 hours. Highly recommend!
