Super chill and fun!

We had Derek as our guide and he was great! The kayaking portion was easy and fun. We also saw several sea turtles in the spot that we were guided to. Def recommend!

Fun ride but not worth the photo package

Gorgeous scenery but too much talking and not enough kayaking and snorkeling from the guide. Also, he offered an extra photo package and there were barely any pics of us in the water. Bit disappointed since we paid a lot

Terrific Time in Turtle Town!

Turtle Town was better than we’d ever imagined it would be. Turtles everywhere! Our guide, Cody was the best. Our daughter is an introvert and typically takes awhile to get comfortable with new people and experiences but he was able to pull her out of her shell and give her amazing memories from this dive.

I had a wonderful time and would love to go again! Our guide was very friendly but could have been more helpful for those who were unfamiliar with using a kayak. Other than that, he was great!

A must especially during whale season!

We had an amazing time, l highly recommend this tour especially it you’re visiting Maui during whale season. Our guide Tyler was the best, he walked us through everything and made us very comfortable. Be sure to wear a hat a sunglasses, but bring only the essencials with you (stuff is going to get wet). We got to see whales really close to us, and of course many turtles when snorkeling. 10/10 experience

Cody, was great. Patience and fun. Better than expected. We were on the Kaanapali side and wished I had known the location. We took off from Wailea side. Not convenient, but Uber did take us and it was not cheap. But we found it. So it’s a lesson learned. I had booked it online before I arrived. Next time I will make sure I book on the side we are staying. This was my error! Turtles, fish and much more were fun to see. Plus the kayak adventure was super.

Terrific kayak & snorkel excursion in Maui
Patricia_D

Had a very enjoyable kayak & snorkel trip with Cody. Even though the original location had to change to West Maui due to ocean conditions, we saw many whales in the distance & he found a big green turtle for us to check out. It’s apparent he cares about the ocean & the environment. Very happy with the excursion. He took some awesome pictures for us as well.

Tyler is an attentive guide meeting the varied experience levels and abilities of those in our group. He is knowledge about ocean life and was kind enough to offer some land options to explore during the remainder of our stay. We were fortunate enough to see many turtles, the turtle ‘washing station’ and several fish species.

Captain Tim was so funny and has the cutest laugh. Zack was funny too and extremely helpful. With a small group, the tour was very personal and worth the money. We spent a lot of time in the water!! We saw amazing fish and turtles. This was the first time we were able to snorkel the back side of molokini. I highly recommend This tour.

Wonderful time on the water!

This was such a great tour! We can’t say enough about our guide Tyler. It is obvious he loves the area and did such a good job sharing his knowledge with us. We were worried it might be cool to snorkel early in the am. But it was plenty warm. The shorter tour we picked was the perfect amount of time to snorkel and enjoy the time on the water. We would definitely book with this group again!

Jeremiah is an amazing guide and very informative. He makes sure everything was organized and all the instructions are clear and understandable. He do jokes too 😂. He makes sure everyone was safe and what to look for and where to look. I would highly recommend him and this company. It doesn’t matter if you’ve kayak and snorkel before, you’ll love this. Make sure you bring a very good waterproof camera because it’s amazing down there ☺️
