Maui Turtles - Amazing
, Sep 2021
Our guide was great, explained everything to us and what we needed to do to be safe and enjoy the kayaking/snorkeling experience. As we paddled out of the bay he explained and provided history on the area and sea life. He heard there was a pod of dolphin that had been spotted, so we paddle out into the channel to try and see them, but unfortunately they had disappeared. We then paddled into shore and began to snorkel. He pointed out turtles and explained everything about them. He even found a small octopus provided background on the species. He was a great guide and I would recommend the experience.

Andres was the greatest host and we are enjoy the most of it, but we lost snorkeling equipment while we’re in the water

Snorkeling with Sea Turtles a must do!

Such a great morning and way to experience the Maui waters. Our tour guide Andres was amazing. He was funny, personable, knowledgeable and just overall super fun. After five minutes with him my husband and I commented to each other that Andres was “worth the price of admission alone!” I was astonished at how many turtles and beautiful fish there were to see as soon as we jumped into the water. We highly recommend this adventure. It was simply unforgettable.
Amazing Time!

John was our guide and was amazing! Gave us information about our surroundings and was very helpful with the kayaks and snorkeling gear. He had a friendly personality which made the experience memorable. The weather was perfect to do both activities. Saw a lot of turtles chilling by the coral as well as tiny fishes. I especially liked how small our group was which made it a better experience. Definitely recommend going!

Great experience

We went on the snorkel kayak tour. We were lucky to have perfect weather. Chappy did a great job of explaining things for the inexperienced and made everyone feel safe. Once on the water he was great making sure we saw tons of sea turtles. He also made sure we did our snorkeling where there were not a lot of other groups which was nice. I was really worried since you go in the water from the kayak. He explained that part really well. I was even more worried about how to get back in since I’m the person with two left feet. Here’s my advice- ask for help! It’s better than tipping the kayak over. Other things to know if you want photos they’re $60 and you need to decide up front. You can pay by credit card, venmo, or cash but he will take tons of photos of you kayaking and snorkeling if you purchase it. Also if you get sea sick at all, you might want to take dramamine before or bring ginger - we’ve kayaked and snorkeled before without a problem but it hit this time so better to be prepared so you can fully enjoy the amazing day. Even with our mishaps it was still a ton of fun and still highly recommend!
