Nice experience!
, Dec 2019
I have a wonderful experience with my two kids. Tylor is very helpful and patient, teaching us the tricks of kayak and snorkel. During our snorkeling, a turtle kind of swim toward us and play with us, which was really awesome.
Greg made this tour very awesome!

This was an awesome experience!! Very worth the money! I highly recommend! You see beautiful turtles and they swim right next to you. Everything is provided to you and you meet at Makena Landing. They dont mention this to you until you ask for the details but it was great experience!
Great experience

The day was perfect, the whales were active and Greg guided us flawlessly. Only problem - it had to end.

We had an excellent kayaking and snorkeling experience with Zach. He prepared us well for what to expect, getting in and out of the kayak, and telling us about the area and the fish. He was patient, informative and entertaining. The outing was well paced. Zach's passion for Hawaii and being on the water made this a fun and entertaining experience. Highly recommended!

The operation of the tour is highly subject to surf conditions. Our trip was postponed 4 times due to high swells. Once we went out, it was an enjoyable kayaking experience. We saw several whales and spent a nice hour or so on the water. The snorkeling part of the trip was cut a bit short, and were not sure why. The whole event took less than 2 hours, much less than the 2 1/2 hrs advertised.

Our guide did not get in the water with us. We had minimal instruction compared to what we heard from other tours that were near us. The second place we snorkeled was accessible from a roadside beach for free.

We loved the tour! It was my Son's birthday and our guide, Scotty, made it very memorable. He took time to explain everything, gave us a lot of freedom to explore. He took great pictures and created an awesome CD of photos for us as well.
