    Fun for the whole family!
    , May 2022
    Cody was a fantastic guide! Added tips for our visit as well as giving clear instructions with a touch of humor for our snorkel trip. The turtles did not make much of an appearance, but the reef included a lot of beautiful fish. The kayaking was easy and he went at our pace. Our teen kids loved it. The trip was a lot of fun.
    Our trip was switched to...
    , Mar. 2022
    Our trip was switched to a different launch point at the last min which meant driving an extra hour. I understand that the weather conditions are changing but I wished we could have switched to a different day as the snorkel spot wasn’t the greatest at the alternative site and our guide was the only guide that did not have us kayak out very far to try and see whales.

    We have noted your feedback. Unfortunately, being in the tropics the weather, ocean conditions change on a dime. Since we have many skill levels out with us (even tho' small group), we have to keep safety in mind going out. I will relay this on to our guide. We try and do our best to make sure you have a positive experience. Mahalo for giving us constructive advise.
    Love Maui
    , Jan. 2022
    We saw whales and swam with a sea turtle and fish. Cody is an awesome guide and very helpful. I was very cold when I got back into the kayak from snorkeling. He offered his rash guard😊
    Wonderful trip! Great information!
    , Jan. 2022
    Really enjoyed the Kayaking and snorkeling. The guide did a great job of pointing out fish and corals. She was very informative on the marine wildlife.
    Family Fun times!!
    , Dec. 2021
    Great experience for all 5 members of my family!!! None of us are great swimmers but there was fun had by all! Our tour guide was Jeremiah…he was patient with us and quite funny! The normal meeting location was too windy so he took us to Makena Landing and it was great! Much calmer waters and we got to see sea turtles!!!
    , Nov. 2021
    Our family had a great time! Our tour guide Jeremiah was awesome!! Great experience!! Definitely recommend doing this excursion when you visit beautiful Maui!
    Wonderful experience above and below the water.
    , Oct. 2021
    Wonderful paddling and snorkeling trip. We got far enough out when snorkeling that the reef healthier. Large schools of fish and turtles bro see. Tyler took very good care of us!
    Great experience… til my son and I got sea sick 🤢
    , Aug. 2021
    Cody was friendly and took time to review all the things we would need to know while out on the water. He also shared a lot of information about history of Hawaii, pointed out various sea creatures to us, including some we were able to handle. Cody has a great sense of humor and truly enjoys what he does. When my son and I became quite sea sick, Cody was attentive and did what he could to help us until we were able to get back to shore. Cody loves what he does and cares about the environment- it was wonderful to see! If my son and I hadn’t gotten sea sick, it would’ve been perfect- the sea wasn’t rough, just our sensitive bodies!
    , Jul. 2021
    This tour was less expensive then the other tours and the only one left. I did not have high expectations. We kayaked to our first spot (not very far) and saw plenty of sea turtles. We kayaked to our 2nd spot and saw plenty of coral and fish. Highly recommend for beginners. Our guide Jeremiah was awesome and gave us some great facts about the island and sea life.
    Probably should skip
    , Jun. 2021
    You should probably skip this tour. Our tour guide got there an hour late and out tour still ended at the listed time, so we paid for an hour that we didn’t get. Also, the life vests smelt like old body odor that lasted until I got back to the hotel and showered. It wasn’t the worst, just not worth the money and precious time during an expensive trip
