Olowalu Beach Park: Private Kayak, Snorkel, Turtle and Reef Adventure

Come join Hawaiian Ocean Sports for an amazing guided kayak adventure on the southwest side of Maui at Olowalu Beach.  Located at mile marker 14 on Honoapiilani Highway and just a few miles from Lahaina, Olowalu is one of Maui’s premier snorkeling and kayaking locations.  Olowalu is considered one of Hawaii’s healthiest and oldest reef systems with over 30 species of coral including large coral heads estimated to be hundreds of years old.  Olowalu’s reef system plays an integral role in our ecosystem.  Olowalu is considered a “Mother Reef” as spawning coral polyps travel to surrounding island reef structures and seeding them.  The ocean is the most dynamic and powerful force on the planet providing 70% of the air we breathe and over 70% of the surface of our planet.  Our ancestors said “Kanaka Ala Mai Ke Kai” which translates to “From the Sea came Man.”

Olowalu is home to a rare manta-ray cleaning station, blacktip reef tip shared nursery, and home to the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle; honu!

Relive a part of ancient Hawaii as your Kanaka (native Hawaiian) guides share the rich history of Olowalu and Hawaii with you!  Our local guides are In ancient Hawaii, Olowalu was considered to be a Pu’uHonua, a place of refuge.  If a person violated any one of the established laws, the penalty included death.  If the person eluded the pursuers and reached the nearest Pu’uHonua, or place of refuge, punishment was escaped.

This area is along the Westside Pali of Maui and was considered wahipana (sacred) in ancient Hawaii.  Ukumehame was named in reference to the payment (uku) of wood (hame or mehame).  The indigenous Hame or Mehame tree is a very hard, strong and durable native wood used by early Hawaiians for kapa tools, hut beams, javelins or spears, digging sticks (‘o’o), and scraping boards for olona.

The red fruit juice mixed with kamani oil was used to make a bright red dye for kapa cloth, particularly for the malo or loincloth.

This tree was considered a la’aulapa’au or medicinal plant in old Hawaii.  The leaves were chewed and swallowed for vomiting spells.  The bark, mixed with other plants, was used as a wash for ulcers and scrofulous sores.

This area in old Hawaii is considered to have numerous ocean grave sites located in shallow water and shoreline areas.  Many Native Hawaiians are opposed to the development of this coastal shoreline.
