Fun but check equipment before entering water
, Jun 2021
Trip itself was fun, however we had equipment issues. One in our party was missing a mouthpiece to his snorkel, so he didn’t get to snorkel and one was missing a strap on his fin
Rough waters

Our trip was cancelled due to the rough surf. However we did receive a call the evening before to let us know it was cancelled but no option to reschedule.

John was an amazing guide and if you let him know early he will be sure to get really good pictures of your trip! We saw so many sea turtles and lots of sea life while snorkeling! You are a good tired after this trip!
Great experience!

Carlos was an awesome guide! Great personality and very knowledgeable. Saw lots of cool fish and sea turtles! Highly recommend!
Fun experience, OK service

I was surprised there was no email or text with info about what to bring or where to meet. There also was no dry bag to bring stuff on the kayak. So no extra sunscreen or water for the 2 hours out. There was one bottle of water and a granola bar for snack. Our guide, Carlos, did a great job of teaching about kayak use and was very nice. There was little info given about the area. I guess the eco part of the tour was that we kayaked and didn’t use motors. The area he took us too was awesome. Weather conditions could not have been better. Plenty of snorkel time. Lots of turtles and fish variety.
Simply the best

Our trip far exceeded our expectations. John our guide was thorough, safe, fun, and funny. Kayaking was great but the nature viewing was out of this world. We had a chance to see dolphins up close as well as sea turtles. Snorkeling was in crystal clear water and provided more opportunities for close viewing of sea turtles and other marine life. Best activity we did on Maui.

From the time of arrival the guide was full of energy and information. He was patient and very fun. Def recommend Carlos for your tour guide.
Wonderful start to a beautiful Maui experience

Lahaina snorkeling was amazing
, May 2021
Our guide, Armadillo, was so knowledgeable on the history of Lahaina. He was funny, kind, & never made anybody feel left out. We were in a group of 10 people and he made sure everybody was included in the adventure.

Turtles! Had a great time kayaking and snorkeling and enjoying the ocean. Carlos was a great guide. Water got bit rough toward the end but all was well.
