Amazing experience and 100% recommendthe tour
Charu_R, Jan 2024
We had the most amazing experience with John and Emilly. It was my first time Paddle boarding and they made me feel so comfortable. We had hump back whales come close to our paddle board and it was once in a lifetime experience to see them up so close to us. John took some amazing videos of us and the whales for our memories. We also saw Hawaiian Monk Seal and Turtles while Paddle Boarding. Overall amazing experience and definitely recommend them 100%
Great experience!

Peg was great, she taught us how to paddle board with a lot of patience and very accommodating with the snorkeling part. She brought us over to two reefs and taught us about the surrounding islands. We had a great time.
Great family activity- worry free and relaxation

Highlight of our Maui vacay! Since we had 2 kids with us (5 and 7 years) they provided 2 guides for our private session. We felt fully safe and taken care of, while my husband and I could really enjoy the paddle board and snorkeling. Our guides Peg (the owner) and Chris really allowed us to relax and soak in the moments. When my 5 year old got cranky, they made sure he got happy again (luckily had some snacks on the paddlebaord for him!) We were able to get some “National Geographic”-like shots with an octopus, starfish, and urchin, which btw the photo package is a MUST. The photo package also allows you to just enjoy, and let them be the ones to focus on the pics (which they also were amazing at). Just super impressed and happy with our experience and would def recommend them to our friends! Thanks so much Peg and Chris!
Life Happens and sometimes Mother Nature takes over ……

This is a unique review since we did not get to experience the excursion due to Mother Nature not cooperating with us.- which we fully respect and honor. Everyone should be mindful that things like this will happen and it may be disappointing, however, when the organizer is really great about checking in and communicating it makes the experience less disappointing! Peg was so o. Top of her communication and flexibility offering g various options with alternated dates etc. She was also so gracious about texting a wonderful list of her local favorites and things to do in Maui. We actually hit three of her recommendations. Best tips were how to get in places without reservations! We both did our best to be flexible but unfortunately it did not happen this trip but I can guarantee that we will book with Peg next time around! I highly recommend to all my friends and family as well. I’m pretty sure the private lessons would’ve been quite an experience based on the attention Peg showed us. Mahalo!

Seeing all the turtles and being so close to them was amazing! Our guide was understanding of our different levels of comfort on the paddle board.
