A great kayak adventure- beautiful reefs and turtles!
Jul 2021
We had a wonderful time on the kayak adventure in Makena. Carlos was our guide. He was professional, friendly, offered good instruction, took us to the right spots for seeing beautiful reefs and turtles. He provided snacks and water. Carlos was riendly with adults and kids- so that everyone was happy and comfortable even though they had not been in a kayak before. He kept a close eye on us and also on the turtles (so that no one got too close). It was a great way to experience Maui.

Jul 2021 • Family
John was an excellent tour guide through some wavy waters. He described the “how to’s” in an efficient and helpful way. And, he was extremely knowledgeable, informative and fun! Our group of 5 had a blast. We felt safe, and were well taken care of. We also learned so much about sea life and saw numerous turtles!

Thank you, John!!!

Great family fun!
Jul 2021 • Family
Andres was our guide. He gave clear directions to help make kayaking fun and safe. He took his time on our tour and was very upbeat and friendly. We got to enjoy kayaking and snorkeling at two spots. He helped my young nephew feel confident getting out of the kayaking in deeper water and swimming. We saw lots of turtles. It was a fantastic time!

Trip was cancelled last minute
Jul 2021
I am sure it would have been a great trip if we went on it. They called to cancel our trip 40 minutes before the start of the tour. We were staying an hour away so were already on the road and did not bring our phone as we did not want it to get wet or leave it in the car. They said that one of their vehicles broke down the day before and did not get fixed in time. I know these things happen and would have been totally understanding but I expect a heads up--not a call 40 minutes before the trip when the vehicle broke down the day before. I do not see why they could not have texted us the night before letting us know. Others went on the tour--just not us. I assume we were chosen to be excluded because we were a party of 4 with kids. If we got the call the night before then we would not have woken up our kids at the crack of dawn to drive an hour and then be turned away. So disappointing. They did refund us our money, of course, promptly.

Outstanding Guide who delivered Turtles & more
We absolutely loved our 4 hour tour with John. He was so knowledgeable about kayaking, snorkeling and the ecosystem. He gave clear instructions and demonstrated how to enter and exit the kayaks while snorkeling. He also provided all snorkeling gear and explained tips to have the best mask fit, kick stroke and breathing. What made this amazing was John’s passion for what he does. We watched other tours and John by far was most charismatic and genuine. We saw tons of turtles, sea caves and reef life. Would recommend and will come back because of John’s service and love of Maui.

Best experience with Carlos!
Jul 2021 • Couples
We loved our time with Carlos! He was friendly, knowledgeable, and fun! He took us farther than any other group went and in turn, we had the whole reef we were on to ourselves. We then stopped at one more spot closer to our launch point, where we saw tons of turtles (and fish as well). A few hours well spent - my husband and I would do it again every day if we could.
