This was the highlight of my trip to Maui. Our guide, Kyle, was friendly and helpful. We were there at the end of March and got to see lots of turtles and some other fish. Although the boats are clear (which is very cool), I only saw things in the reef area, which you don’t go over with a boat (you wouldn’t want to hurt/damage anything). So although staying in the boat is an option, I recommend getting out to snorkel. We were even given an option to have Kyle take all our pictures so that we could just enjoy ourselves and have pictures of ourselves. I really appreciated this option since it was me with a child.

Our kayak snorkel tour guide Kyle was great!! Very helpful, friendly and good at what he does. The experience will be a memory my fiancé and I will keep enjoying for years to come.

Great family activity
Amy_T, Mar 2024
Kyle was a fantastic guide! He chatted with us as we kayaked, was great with instructions & took some great pictures for us. Well worth the $ to have him take pics & us not having to worry about waterproof phone cases. Turtles were amazing! My husband didn’t want to snorkel so he kayaked around while we were in the water.

Memorable Outdoor Experience
Nanci_M, Mar 2024
Our guide, Kyle, is very knowledable about the ocean, animals and area. He was positive, a clear communicator and fun to hang around. He put everyone at ease. He makes this outdoor experience safe, accessible and inclusive for everyone. So, you get to see all the beauty of the coral reef, sea turtles and fish while he helps you find where to go, where to look, and shares some great tips and knowledge about it. This was a highlight of our trip and I'd do it again!!
Response from Host, Apr 2024

A unforgettable tour. Nice tour guide, beautiful water, fun and enjoyed
Alice_L, Feb 2024
This was a best tour. I booked this tour for my brother and his wife. It was their first time kayak and snorkel. Also both of them were not speak English. The tour guide Kyle called me let me to interpretation the basic information to them. He was very patiently taught them how to paddle and snorkel even my sister used the Google translator to community with him. Kyle took many beautiful pictures for them. My brother and sister in law were very enjoy this tour and grateful to the tour guide Kyle for helping them have an unforgettable happy time. Also the tour coordinator Tiffany was very nice and helpful.

Too short
Sheri_M, Nov 2023
It was great, but could have been longer. The amount of time snorkeling was fine. Maybe a little more kayaking along the coast. Great guide. Kyle was awesome. It really was cool to use the clear kayaks.
Response from Host, Mar 2024
Mahalo Sheri for your review amd feedback. I am happy to hear you wanted to spend longer on the water. Our tour duration seems to meet majority of travellers needs as we find that most people are fulfilled and ready for some time out of the sun after our tour. We also come back in at 10am because the wind generally comes up after that and the wind causes for dangerous conditions. And our start time is 7am, which already seems early enough for a lot of our customers on vacation. Each tour also varies in the way that the tour guide has to consider the wind forecast, the visibility of our snorkel spots and the fitness and abilities of the group. We very much appreciate your feedback though and will take this into consideration. Mahalo for booking with us - Tiffany and Curtis
Great snorkeling with sea turtles!
Andrea_T, Nov 2023
The snorkeling was excellent. We spent almost an hour with 4 turtles! Kyle was a knowledgeable and helpful guide. The clear kayak is neat but not as comfortable as a traditional kayak so it was a bit tough on the back. I still do recommend.
Response from Host, Mar 2024
Mahalo Andrea for your review and feedback. Lovely to hear you had a fun time with 4 turtles on tour with guide Kyle. We appreciate your feedback regarding your comfort level. I do find that people are more comfortable when their seats are properly adjusted to support their back so we encourage tour guides to help adjust and check in on how the guests are feeling. We have also since, purchased new seats with more padding for extra comfort. We very much appreciate your booking and feedback - Tiffany and Curtis
Awesome Adventure on the Water
Lauren_M, Sep 2023
The small group, guide (Kyle), clear kayaks & abundance of turtles in perfect snorkel conditions made for a magnificent Sunday morning! HIGHLY recommend booking this excursion which is enjoyable for even those who aren’t super outdoorsy or active.
Best snorkeling in maui
Kelly_C, Sep 2023
Kyle was a great guide. We were the first group to arrive at turtle town and were able to see so many turtles as well as other sea life.
