Great kayaking experience! Beautiful views ! Crystal clear waters! Sea turtle sightings were fantastic. James the tour guide was great and talked a lot about the islands history . Only thing, pretty tough carrying a double kayak two blocks and dragging it through sand and one foot water to get to the beach. Also you should be able to have your own kayak even if you’re with someone. Other than that I would highly recommend! Awesome!

Kayak and Snorkel Trip
Laura_K, May 2024
Austin was an incredible tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and catered to our needs and skills. We got to watch a Monk Seal 🦭, saw turtles 🐢 while kayaking and snorkeling and saw some beautiful fish. Austin also taught us about the birds native to the island as well as many other interesting facts!

Very well run business, they took care of everything. Even on a bad weather day it was an enjoyable trip.
Fantastic Tour
Ellie_A, May 2024
This tour was amazing! I highly recommend doing the guided tour unless you’re already familiar with ocean kayaking. Tommy was super knowledgeable and helped us time our departure to get the best weather possible. He was amazing and the islands themselves were really cool! Highly recommend!
Amazing experience.
JESSICA_B, May 2024
Amazing kayak tour. Our Guide Evelyn was amazing!! Very knowledgeable. Saw many turtles and the snorkeling experience was awesome as well even on a choppy day! So cool to see the wedgie birds and boobies (bird) the queen bath was really cool as well.
Wonderful Hawaiian Experience!!
Allison_W, Apr 2024
Riki was the best kayak tour guide!! He was so knowledgeable and made the experience fun and down to earth. I really appreciate his respect for nature and the ocean. He took pictures and videos for us so we didn’t have to worry about it! I would definitely come do another tour with him when I’m back in Hawaii!! :)
If you could only do one thing in Hawaii, this is it.
Holden_B, Apr 2024
The whole experience was perfect. Thankfully we had beautiful weather and the water was calm. Our guide Brian kept us safe and his experience made sure we didn’t leave disappointed. All my husband wanted to do is see a sea turtle while snorkeling and somehow our tour guide spotted them and guided my husband right to them. It was WELL WORTH the money we spent to have a guided tour. Brian also took pictures through out the whole five hour experience and then shared them with us all at the end. Lunch was great too!
Definitely worth it
Ryan_G, Apr 2024
The staff was really friendly and helpful, Marty was awesome! The instructions were clear if you do a self guided tour, good lunch options. Overall one of the funner things we did in Waikiki.
I wish I could have been there.

It was very good. They really prepare a lot for you, from instruction to equipment to service. Would recommend to my friends and go there again.
Great way to spend the day
Vito_D, Mar 2024
Great time! Went today with my wife. We both had a blast. Made it out to the island. The waves were intense on the way there but we did it in about an hour or a little bit more. Totally worth getting the guide had no idea how to do it solo, amazing time even got to jump into the queens bath and the lunch was good till since we went at 8 AM and had time at the end we even got complementary bikes and snorkel gear and got to use that at the beach is after. Enjoy.
Must do Kayak Excursion
Tias_D, Mar 2024
We've done this Kayak Excursion twice now and it get better every time! Would absolutely recommend getting the snorkel gear they provide for you.
Memorable experience
Sara_R, Mar 2024
Seeing sea turtles in the beautiful water and enjoying pictures on the island of Moku Nui. Very windy on the day we went, so prepare to paddle...
Beautiful water
Mary_P, Mar 2024
It was a nice venture out. You do have to wheel your own kayaks out to the water but it's pretty easy. The water was amazing and we even saw a sea turtle but didn't have the camera out to get the picture. It was great to have food included with the trip b/c after a few hours of kayaking, we were famished. They provided everything you need.
Kayak excursion Kailua Beach
Sandra_S, Mar 2024
Unfortunately there was a small craft warning on the day of my excursion, I should have tried to reschedule it. Waves were too big for launching, only 2 two person kayaks were able to launch, I was solo. So I paddled around the nearby canal instead. Had a really great pizza included in the tour, and will rebook for my next trip so I can try again.
Will definitely do again!
William_C, Mar 2024

What a fun experience!
Vickie_M, Feb 2024
What a great day! Brian was amazing, he made you feel comfortable right from the start. Five hours with a nice lunch and a beautiful island stop. Had a blast jumping in the queens bath! Saw lots of turtles too! Would definitely recommend.
Trenton_S, Feb 2024
Marty was very helpful, as was the rest of the staff. Beautiful trip. My wife and I ate our lunch on Popoia Island.
A Blast
Haley_B, Feb 2024
Booking this was the best part of our trip! There is so much more included than just the kayak adventure! You have access to bikes, snorkeling gear, boogie boards, beach chairs, coolers, and more! We spent all day exploring Kailua. Jamie was so helpful and kind! 10/10 recommend!
We didn’t see turtles,...
Bliss_S, Feb 2024
We didn’t see turtles, which was the original motivation, but had a most excellent time and would highly recommend this for active and adventurous folks! We did the self-guided version but felt very supported by the excellent staff.
