Really fun but should not advertise whale watching when the tour guide/ owner clearly stated there are no whales to see in may … could have reduced the price for a paddle kayak trip on the ocean for a few hours while he fished … we did have fun aside from the false advertising


This was an incredible experience. La and Andon were the best guides and made sure we had the experience of a lifetime. Loved the pedaling kayaks- it kept my hands free for taking video of the beautiful whales we came across. I would 10/10 do it again. Amazing.


Booked a tour with this company and my travel companion couldn't go. Contacted them weeks ahead for a refund of one. It took them weeks and then with only a few days left before I was leaving they said they were cancelling both, but still have yet to give me my refund. I was very excited about this and have done a similar tour with another company in the past who was very professional. Be careful with this company.


The whole crew were all so friendly, welcoming, and helpful! We had a great experience with Anton as our guide, saw lots of whales, and we never felt rushed or bothered, even spent extra time with him to watch him fish for cool fishies and had so much fun! Highly recommend the hand free kayaks, it was so much easier to kayak for hours straight, and also have free hands to take pictures or eat snacks :)


If you are looking for a private, relaxing kayak excursion with an engaging local, this is the kayak outing for you. We had perfect weather and calm seas. The 2 person kayak is easy to pedal and steer. It is a very stable watercraft. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. We were fortunate that our guide had caught fish earlier that morning and he shared with us with several fresh fillets to take back. This was an unexpected bonus!


Got recommended a better time of day which is early and the conditions were great then. Most beautiful spot. Our guide was very friendly and interesting and made it a wonderful experience for us. I only gave them a 4 out of 5 because they forgot to bring the snacks but it wasn't a big deal. Our guide took pictures of us and sent them to us.


Beautiful day on the sea! We had a fabulous experience! Justin was so knowledgble about Maui landmarks and history. We enjoyed the pedal on the kayak. Very easy to get to our destination and back. We will definitely be back!!!!


Such an incredible tour. The pedal kayaks are easy to operate and the entire experience was so relaxing and quiet. It was nice to just float in the water near the beautiful whales -- there are no words! John was an amazing guide and it was one of the most enjoyable experiences we have had on Maui. We will definitely book again on our next visit!


Incredible experience - the best whale watching tour I’ve experienced on Maui! We’ve done boat tours in the past, but I loved how quiet and intimate it felt to see them from a kayak. Our guide, Justin, was super friendly and knowledgeable. The kayaks use foot pedals and were much easier to navigate than traditional kayaks with oars, plus it left your hands free to take photos. We saw a large pod of whales and the views of Maui were also spectacular. Highly recommended!


Jeanbarakah, owner of Boomkanani, is an outstanding guide and just a good dude to spend the afternoon with. We had amazing whale encounters, boated a Mahi, listened to whalesong with the hydrophone, and just had an overall outstanding experience. Oh, and the equipment is top notch.
