This is a good tour, but the guides were a little lackluster. They feed you and make sure you have drinks, but outside of taking photos that they tried to sell us afterwards and trying to upsell me on snuba, they were not very interested in interacting with us. The food is great though, the drinks are solid, and they take you to some of the most beautiful places to snorkel in Maui. I'd highly recommend.
Would highly recommend this tour! It was my second time kayaking but it is perfectly suitable for beginners, not very strenuous. It was my first time snorkeling and I had a very positive experience! Our guide, Nate, made sure first-timers were looked after and took along a professional camera to make pictures with the sea turtles and other sea life, should you wish to purchase them later. We had plenty of time to snorkel and explore, didnt feel rushed at all. I would recommend the morning tour, it feels more peaceful and youll have more space before the other tours pick up. After the excursion, Nate was kind enough to give us suggestions of activities around the island, such as hikes and insider tips of when to get there, what is most worth doing, etc. Overall, it was an amazing experience, you wont regret going - especially if youre a fan of turtles I had six sightings! Big thank you to Nate and the team!
Nate was awesome. Nice and low-key adventure in a small group. Saw turtles and lots of fish.
It took a little while to find the turtles, but when we did it was AMAZING!! Our guide Steve was very knowledgable, he's been a guide for 17 years, so I felt very comfortable with him. Unfortunately my cheap underwater camera didn't work, so no pictures. : But the memory of floating around with the turtles will always be with me! Thank you Steve for a great trip!
Loved this tour. Great kayaking and awesome snorkeling. Beautiful scenery.
An early morning outing before the tradewinds take hold, this was fantastic. We kayaked for about half an hour before getting out and slipping into the water to be surrounded by sea turtles! An amazing sight!
This was so so much fun. We had an excellent guide/instructor. The kayaking was easy and fun - no need for high level skills. Snorkeling the reef was awesome, saw 4 sea turtles and many, many colorful fish. The reefs themselves were beautiful! Would definitely do this again.
This is definitely a five-star experience. Ours was a small group, only six people plus Rusty, our guide. The trip was magical at every moment, from the departure at sunrise to the paddle to the reef and eventually the reef itself. Rusty knew where the green sea turtles should be and he didn't disappoint us. I have snorkeled with sea turtles in the Galapagos, but this experience was even better.
The guide Garrett Jaros made all the difference. He made it special and safe.
This was fantastic! I would do it again in a heartbeat! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun!
This trip was one of the best things we did during three weeks on three different islands in Hawaii!
Our guide was so awesome, down to earth, very personable, and seemed to let us just kind of go with the flow. We got to hear whales singing, swim with turtles, and touch some sea urchins. Loved it.
We loved this "tour." The visibility wasn't great, but our guide made the most of the conditions, and we saw many fascinating fish, several turtles - and a manta ray! The guide was informative and clearly had a strong interest in the environment. He informed us without being tedious, and his knowledge certainly enhanced our experience. We were pleased we did it this way rather than with a larger group off a boat.
Really great Tour. Had Steve as our guide he was funny and knowledgable of the area and the marine life, great guy. Would definitely recommend doing. The snorkelling was great and we were able to see heaps of turtles up close
Wife and I went on this kayak tour and it was great! We had a small group and our guide was very knowledgeable about the islands and its history. My wife went snorkeling while I stayed behind in the kayak and she enjoyed it very much. It was her first time snorkeling despite her fears of the ocean
