Amazing tour
, Jun 2021
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 ☺️

Our trip was sooo awesome!!! My sister and I are fairly large but wanted to enjoy the experience. Miah was fabulous and took great care of us. He even was able to find her husband’s cell phone and IDs that we’re in a bag. Amazing!!!

Kayaking was a great way to see wildlife! We saw whales while kayaking and sea turtles at the snorkel spot. Two hours was the perfect length of time for this trip. There was a good mix of paddling and stopped to look for animals. Good way to get in some exercise while also exploring Maui!
Lovely trip

Absolutely loved the tour and highly recommend it. The guide Jeremiah was great and guided me really well even though it was my first time on the kayak. Saw some lovely marine life and a sea turtle.

One of a Kind Lifetime Memories

Got to see a sea turtle, whales, and squid while kayaking towards our snorkeling destination, then upon getting there, swam with/saw 3 sea turtles lots of fish and got to hold sea urchins! The best part was that it was just my friend and I and the tour guide so it was an incredible, intimate experience. The water was clean and clear, the perfect temperature, and our guide Tyler was very easy going and pleasant. I think our experience was quite special and isolated due to not many people being on Maui because of Covid. So that was a plus working in our favor.
