Overview

Top rated ocean activity company is looking to expand our team. As one of Maui’s Certified B Corporation activity company, we strive to be as sustainable and eco friendly as possible. We are committed to using our for-profit company to strengthening our community and environment by giving back through monthly volunteer service projects. HawaiianPaddleSports.com/Malama-Maui
We are looking for guides who share these values in their personal life and have a passion for educating visitors to Maui about the Marine World and Hawaiian Culture.

Being an ocean activity guide can be very rewarding “job” for the right person. If you like to stay up late and party, this probably isn’t the job for you. However, If you are an early riser and love being out in nature then this could be a good fit. The hours are early mornings starting around 530am and done around 12:00pm. Morning hours make it possible to have a second job in the evening time if should you need. You’ll be getting paid to exercise and play in the ocean…. something your guests will be paying to do:) Full time employees will receive health insurance. For long term employees we have a great benefits package which includes Paid vacation, matching IRA, Paid Maternity/Paternity/Bereavement Leave and incentive bonus program.

Passionate, friendly, enthusiastic, outgoing, leader and personable are all words which describe the ideal guides personality. Guides must be flexible, a problem solver, a person that takes initiative and is successful working under little supervision.

Safety is our number one value. CPR and First Aid Certification is required within 30 days of hire. Lifeguard Training is a bonus.

Hawaiian Cultural and Marine Life knowledge is a huge plus.

Passion for the marine environment and enthusiasm to share that passion with visitors is a must.

About Hawaiian Paddle Sports

Environmental Stewardship – Community Service – Sense of Place

With the ocean as our office, we take great pride in caring for Maui’s environment, community and island culture. We provide authentic sustainable eco-tours that encourage you to discover a deeper appreciation of and connection to Hawaii’s marine environment.

Since our inception in 2010, we’ve encouraged visitors to love and protect our beaches, oceans and waves by disposing of trash properly, reducing single-use plastic consumption, and using reef-safe sunscreen. We have a strict no-touch policy for marine life and only use reusable stainless steel water bottles on our tours. Each tour or lesson starts with a mini-beach cleanup, as we always strive to leave the beach cleaner than we found it.
