Jason was absolutely awesome! He was super knowledgeable and entertaining. We learned a lot about the ocean and enjoyed our kayak tour so much! Highly recommend!

Jennifer_H

The tour guide was so easy going and relaxed. We didn’t feel rushed or scared as this was our first time out on the ocean. He even offered to hold our hand or tie our boat to his. Even when it got windy he helped guide us back safely to the shore. His son also works with him and he was knowledgeable as well. When we snorkeled he let us hold sea creatures and then put them safely back in their habitat. They gave us snacks, water, sunscreen and life jackets. Everything was perfect! I want to do this again. Thank you! I would give more than 5 stars.

Jason, Gabriel and Sabrina are the real deal. Super positive experience. They’re all welcoming and friendly and warm people. I felt comfortable out on the ocean it was my first time kayaking. Great service and they clearly put a lot of love into this.

Cynthia_J

We really enjoyed the entire experience. Jason (our tour guide) was so much fun, had tons of energy and was so knowledgeable . You definitely get your money’s worth and then some.

Jill_C

This was a very fun experience! Jason and his son Gabriel took us out on Olowalou bay. I really appreciated how they managed the experience for their guests and made everyone feel comfortable whether you were a first time kayaker or was more experienced. The family is alot of fun to meet, and their hospitality is the best that Ive experienced during our visit on the island. We enjoyed hanging out with them on the water.

Lauren_F

This experience is one I will always cherish and remember. Our tour guides were absolutely amazing and left us with an unforgettable experience. They truly care about their customers. From making the kayaking and snorkeling as relaxing as possible, to ensuring the health, safety and comfort for everyone. Thank you both for doing what you do! I hope this review helps the next couple or friends choose their next excursion with Gabriel’s Ohana!!!

Endlessly amazing views and fun! The entire team at Gabriel’s Ohana were kind and knowledgeable about the island - they had so many tips about things to do and see during our trip! They catered the entire experience to see and talk about what the group was interested in. The kayaking experience was fun and informative! The snorkeling experience is a MUST because this is easily some of the coolest reef and most wildlife we saw on any of the Hawaiian island tours we’ve attended (ACRES of beautiful reef and 7 green sea turtles in just a few hours?!). Gabriel’s Ohana toured us around the reef and gave us time to explore the best areas in the Olowalu Beach’s beautiful ocean! I will absolutely book this tour again when we come back to Maui 🌺

Corey_K

Jason was the absolute best! If I’m ever back in Maui I would book this again. I’ve never been snorkeling before and wanted to give it a try but was super nervous. Jason was so patient and encouraging. I don’t think we could have had a better guide. We even got to snorkel near a turtle. The area is very safe feeling if it’s your first time. Highly recommend. Thank you Jason!

Megghen_D

I would give more than 5 stars if I could!!!! Our kayak trip was absolutely exceptional! Jason and Nick were awesome from start to finish! We had a slightly windy day, but that didn't take away from the stunning beauty and overall amazing experience. Jason's enthusiasm was boundless and his knowledge was impressive. We will undoubtedly book this tour every time we come to Maui. If you want an unforgettable experience, we highly recommend this one! The Gabriel family are the very essence of the "Aloha Spirit" and we were lucky to be able to share the day with them! Megghen & Brian

Jason and Gabriel were absolutely incredible. In our 12 day trip to Maui (our first), this was absolutely the highlight of our trip. The weather was a bit overcast, so it was a little hard to see the reef under our boats, but Jason gave us all snorkel gear and took us out on the reef after talking through the history and sharing so much information about what we might be seeing under the water. My 6 year old had never snorkeled in the ocean before (and had only practiced in the pool a few times before) and Jason was so patient and reassuring - he was in the water and off in no time! We loved that Jason was able to find and bring to the surface a few things for us to look at/touch/hold - it really brought the experience to life and was an incredible learning opportunity. It was almost like his kayaks were a Ms. Frizzle school bus, and Jason was our teacher. Jason's wife followed up with us that evening to make sure we had a great time, and overall, the entire family was incredible. We will absolutely be coming back to see Jason and his family again!
