      Good fun

      We paddled to some whales and got to see their backs, tails, and hear them from our kayaks since they were right underneath us. Then we paddled to a beautiful and big Coral reef where we saw a lot of fish and one sea turtle. James, our guide, was great! Lots of comedy included.

      Great trip
      charles_l, Feb 2024
      First, this review is for a trip left from mile 14 at Olowalu beach and not from Turtle Town It was a great trip/experience. I had a little trouble finding exactly where to meet, but some of that was due to my cell-service issues. After that, everything was great. Our guide (I think Billy) was very nice, knowledgable, and helpful. I had also communicated a few times with Adam about trip details, etc. and he was very helpful. All of the equipment was very good. We first kayaked out to see whales -- we saw several. A couple were close, but most were more in the distance, but that's obviously not controllable. We did get to see 2 breaches! We then partially paddled back and anchored at a snorkel site and had great snorkeling. We then paddled back. We were lucky wtih a few things -- calm weather, crystal clear water, presence of whales, and only 6 (out of maximum 10 possible) guests on our trip. But despite that "luck", the trip was well-run and organized. At least on our trip we went maybe about 5 miles total, so that could be a lot of paddling for some, and some physicial ability is needed to get back into a kayak from the water after snorkeling, but my wife and I (early 60's) did fine. Overall a strong recommend.
      Bravo Zulu 🤙🏾

      Visiting whales in their home…
      Ronald_J, Feb 2024
      Our guide Billy was the absolute best combination of a wealth of knowledge and an enthusiastic participant. He made our safety a top priority and he had many informative tidbits about the reef, the whales, and all the details surrounding our adventure. He led us to a place where we were able to see multiple whales, including a mom and her baby that was about the size of our kayak. They played and the baby showed off by breaching multiple times. This experience is one of the best we’ve had and we would highly recommend it to anyone interested. Thanks to Viator, and to Zephyr Adventures and especially to our fantastic guide, Billy! Mahalo…
      Whales, sea turtles and fish oh my!
      Alyssa_C, Jan 2024
      Our guide James was wonderful. He made us feel comfortable and really made sure we got the most of our experience. We saw a momma whale and her calf just in front of our kayaks, snorkeled with fish and sea turtles in the reef. Highly recommend!
      Great day ! Lots of whales
      Hunters11, Jan 2024
      James was a very good tour guide . He pointed out many whales and turtles . He was knowledgeable about the sea life. He was very conscientious about the safety of the rowers. We saw lots of whales close up !
      Stellar guide and a picture perfect day
      Jessica_J, Jan 2024
      Billy was a super friendly and knowledgeable guide who made our excursion an absolute delight! We saw tons of whales and kept a respectful distance. Billy took us to a fabulous snorkeling spot and his love and appreciation for the Hawaiian culture and respect of nature made him the perfect guide for our group. So grateful for the stunning day, we won’t forget it!
      Perfect Morning

      James was an amazing tour guide and gave us a personalized experience that surpassed our expectations. What an epic experience seeing the beauty Maui has to offer! Don’t miss it!
      Highly recommended
      Dorinda_R, Jan 2024
      James was awesome. Knowledgeable and entertaining. We saw whales, dolphins, turtles, many fish & even a monk seal. What a beautiful way to experience the sea life of Maui.
      Great snorkeling experience!
      Kristen_R, Dec 2023
      James was an excellent guide and knowledgeable about snorkeling. We saw turtles and so many reef fish. Will need to do it again when the whales are closer to shore.
      Awesome experience
      Evan_D, Nov 2023
      We went on the water with James and it was like having our own private snorkel tour. James was knowledgeable about the island and wildlife and gave us a great experience. We liked this more than a snorkel boat tour because it gave us the freedom to kayak on the open water at our own pace while also allowing us to observe the wonders of the ocean while snorkeling.
      Best thing I’ve ever done in Maui
      Yolanda_P, Jul 2023
      So much fun!! Totally recommend it Mr. T with nothing but the best one amazing thing to do in Maui. It was amazing turtles, swimming kayaking. And if you just want to get out of the ocean and sit on a kayak, you can also do that everyone was very friendly and helpful. Just one thing is a must to do in Maui.
      Late to making this...
      Michelle_S, Jul 2023
      Late to making this review , but we had the time of our lives with Alex 3/31/23 Alex was very professional, punctual, organized and informed. He shared his knowledge in a very engaging, interactive and entertaining way. He went above and beyond to ensure we had the very best time possible, and we did! This tour is not one to miss. Seriously, if you only have the time and the money to do just one tour, do this one!! I promise you will not regret it
      Kayak and snorkel in paradise 🐢
      PHILIP_A, Jun 2023
      We had a blast! Alex was an amazing guide as he was very informative and knowledgeable. You get to kayak in brand new kayaks AND go snorkeling AND they take your pictures for you. We saw at least 10 turtles! Definitely book this tour if you enjoy kayaking and snorkeling, as you get the best of both worlds for a reasonable price.
      Favorite activity all week!
      Nick_N, May 2023
      This snorkel tour was wonderful! Our guide Alex was super knowledgeable, friendly, experienced, and patient with new snorkelers. My husband and I preferred this tour to the larger snorkel excursion we did a few days earlier to Molokini. Thank you Alex!
      Amazing experience for first timers!
      Dulce_A, May 2023
      Our guide Alex was amazing! He gave us feed back on a lot of things about the island and he was very fun and patient! Great experience!
      Best Hawaii Excursion
      Stephanie_L, Apr 2023
      Easily our best Hawaii excursion we did on all four islands we visited. Alex was awesome to take the time to know every group on our tour and cater to everyone’s ability level. Snorkeling by the turtles in their natural habitat was a bucket list experience and unlike a lot of other “animal encounter” excursions where the animals obviously associate the tour groups with food or provide unethical up close touching encounters. Here the turtles were absolutely just going about their daily life while we observed from a close distance.
