Friendly and fun! We had zero kayaking experience and they were very helpful. We saw whales and turtles in April. Thanks again.


Awesome kayaking tour! We saw whales and sea turtles! It was amazing! The tour guide on that took us out knew exactly where to find the whales!


Our guide, Wesley was fantastic. He is super chill and friendly. Start the trip off with a fresh coconut! Heaven. The snorkeling wasn’t very good just a handful of not too bright fish. I think the reef has just been destroyed. We saw 1 turtle from the kayak, none when snorkeling.

We could not have asked for a better tour! The communication was top notch ahead of time and we felt like we knew exactly what to expect. The location was easy to find (but be mindful because a few tours are located within the same general area). We were lucky in that we had a smaller tour - 5 of us total - and Wesley was the BEST guide! He was so friendly, knowledgeable, and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying our time. We saw so many whales and snorkeling was phenomenal too, with Wesley pointing out different wildlife to us as we went. I could not recommend this experience more!


We had a wonderful trip with Red, he took us out and constantly tried to get us in good spots to see whales. He worked very hard to make sure we get the trip worth. No kidding, I'll say we got more of what we expected! He went above and beyond. Afterward, he took us to good snorkeling spot where we saw a mantra ray and sea turtles! We will do this tour again when we bring our family with us.


Fun amazing time with just peace and quiet. Then hearing and seeing the whales. I enjoyed the experience and the workout.


Plenty of whale and several turtle sightings! Provided kayak, paddle, snorkeling gear, and life vest were in good condition. The meet up location was on the beach, but easy enough to find. Was occasionally hard to hear our guide, but he was familiar with the area and answered all our questions. Overall positive experience!


We loved this experience and it was totally worth the money. We were surrounded by whales and saw quite a few sea turtles and Roger and our guides were wonderful!


As a 75 year old overweight and out of shape man this was a challenge for me, but Red and Wes made it as good as it could be... thank you both! It's beautiful out there. I recommend this outfit highly.


This is the best tour we took in Maui. Four of us had a great time. We saw whales and turtles. West is very friendly. We would recommend this to everyone who visit Maui.
