My husband and I did the 3 hour kayak tour with 8 others in our crew. Andres was our guide and his passion, knowledge, and energy were exceptional—truly felt like you were exchanging stories with a friend. Highly recommend to anyone looking for some adventure. We even got to see a couple of turtles!

Carlos was awesome! Super laid back but professional. Turtle town was a let down but he made sure we got to see some turtles at Makena Beach. Overall we had a great time!

My husband and I had previously done a kayaking and snorkeling excursion two years ago, which was an amazing experience. This time visiting Maui we had our adult daughter traveling with us. We booked the same experience. Unfortunately, weather didn’t cooperate (swells in the water) for the original day we were booked, but the company worked with us to find another time and place that would work. We’re so glad we were able to make it happen! We had a wonderful, knowledgeable and friendly guide (Benji)and it was a memorable experience for us all. We swam with turtles, saw tropical fish and even a mink seal sunning in the coral! Truly a fantastic day and a wonderful company to work with. Highly recommended!

Saw Turtles! So fun!

My husband and I went on this snorkel/kayak trip while on our 10th anniversary trip to Maui! Our trip to Makena actually got cancelled and rescheduled in Lahaina instead, which was actually convienient for us because it was closer. The kayaking was so much fun! And we saw sea turtles within the first 5 minutes of our kayaking! It was amazing! I wouldn’t say the snorkeling in Lahaina was great (but we only went to one spot because the ocean was pretty choppy). We found snorkeling off of Kanaapli beach , Black rock beach and slaughterhouse beach to be better… but we only saw turtles on this trip! Our guide Ryan was wonderful and we really enjoyed the Hawaiian island history he shared while on our kayak trip! Hopefully next time we visit we will make it to Makena!

Fun but check equipment before entering water

Trip itself was fun, however we had equipment issues. One in our party was missing a mouthpiece to his snorkel, so he didn’t get to snorkel and one was missing a strap on his fin
