Kayak Snorkel trip to Captain Cook Mmt
Jennifer

Our Hawaiian guides Rabbit and Evo were great! They gave us a good historical perspective of the Captain Cook arrival and the Hawaiian culture that was and how it changed. That was all before the fun kayak and snorkel tour we took. The safety info and guide communication were great and we felt like we were in good hands. We would definitely recommend Aloha Kayak.

Fantastic morning - a pretty perfect amount of kayaking and snorkeling, with friendly guides that had all sorts of interesting stories to tell about the bay, and Captain Cook, as well as Hawaiian culture. I highly recommend this tour!

Average experience I suppose, I was bummed it had to be cancelled due to weather but I get it. Just waiting on my refund now. Which is weird because another tour was cancelled and I was immediately refunded.

Disappointing customer service

They cancelled because of the rain which is understandable. The problem was leave a group of people waiting at there office for an hour knowing it was going to cancel since it was raining the entire time we waited. There was no one at the office and no one answered the phone which the sign on the door said to call. Waste of time for sure.

The two guides were very nice and funny. The pineapple we had at the end of the trip was the best pineapple we had. The distance was longer than we expected.

We had a fantastic time with Andrew and Travis as our guides! The area you kayak and snorkel is absolutely breathtaking, which makes the experience even more memorable. My husband and I truly enjoyed having to work together to kayak across the bay. Once there you get to snorkel and see such vibrant fish all around! It is definitely something I would add to your trip if you are staying in Kona/ on the big island.

We enjoyed a beautiful morning on the bay with Andrew and Travis, our guides. The snorkeling was fantastic! A most memorable time, just the right amount of exercise too. We stopped at Kaya’s coffee on our way and at Black Rock Pizza after to round out a great experience.
