Great experience!
, Jun 2021
Great time out on the water to learn a little bit of history of the Hawaiian people and also see some turtles. Also nice to do an active excursion and paddle on an outrigger. The team was professional and great communication with directions to the start point.
Fun experience.

It was an amazing experience, so fun and the guide was so nice. We saw turtles, my kids were really happy and we loved it.

Because of traffic we were 10 minutes late, but they still took us out for a canoe experience., got very windy and disappointed we didn’t see any turtles.

Aloha Aniluz, If you're going to submit a review positive or negative, please present accurate information. You were 45 minutes late for 10am scheduled departure. Tradewinds typically increase as the day progresses on Maui. That is why we recommend 8am, 9am and 10am departures for all tours. As Tradewinds increase, the turtles are more difficult to see. For safety reasons, we discontinued the tour and issued you a refund as request. As always, our primary commitment is safety and positive experience. Mahalo, Kevin Piilani Hoke

Great historical perspective on Hawaiian culture. Kevin was amazing. We need more like him. The best. The cost was a tad high and the length a tad short. Make the trip 90mins as a minimum for the cost. Otherwise it was exceptional!!

Aloha Peter and mahalo for the TripAdvisor review & thoughtful comments! We certainly fit a lot into the 90 minute tour! Please feel free to come back another time for a complimentary tour for more time on the water! 8086332800...I’ll hook you up brother!
