We selected an 11 o’clock slot. At 10:43, we received a phone call after arriving to the location stating that there has been a “change in circumstances“ and we are no longer able to kayak. We were also told that there are no more time slots available for the day and cannot reschedule. The person I spoke to on the phone refused to say what “change of circumstances” meant. We got a taxi to be able to get there in time and wasted $40 to drive to the middle of nowhere for this experience which we never received. Waste of time, waste of money. Since we were on site, we went to the water and did see people who were kayaking go out for 11 o’clock. I’m not sure if it was the same company we booked with. There is nothing to do around there, so we had to Uber back to our hotel within 15 minutes. Due to the lack of professionalism and poor timing, I would not recommend this experience.

It was easy to communicate when the date had to change because of weather. Paul gave us options and we were happy it worked. We totally enjoyed the ride. "Armadillo" was a terrific guide! Informative, fun, safe and gave us just enough slack to try some fun kayaking! He is a 10!

We had an amazing time on our kayaking tour! Our guide, Leah, was awesome! She was so nice and knowledgeable about the beautiful islands and the reef below us. A few in our group had never kayaked before ( myself included) and she took some time to show us the ropes for getting us out on the water. She let us set the pace while still being close and available to us if needed. This tour was so great and we even got to see some sea turtles! We would 100% recommend!

We had an amazing time during our kayaking session! Our guide Leah was awesome. She was so knowledgeable about the area and the environment. She shared so much with us about the beauty of Maui and the reef beneath us while we were out on the water. A few in our group (myself included)never kayaked before and she took some time to show us the basics before getting us out on the water. She let us set our pace while at the same time giving us attention if we needed. The views were absolutely beautiful and we had a great time. We even got to see some sea turtles! Would definitely recommend

Snorkeling and seeing turtles, sharks, and a seal! Our tour guy Armadillo was awesome, fun, and made sure safety was a priority. This was the best experience ever.

We had a very nice time on this excursion. We were booked for just the paddling trip on the kayak but were given the option to snorkel with Armadillo for free. The check-in attendant JoMo was very helpful and I also spoke with a Paul on the phone regarding what we should bring. The tour was small maybe 10 people at most with one couple who had recently just got married, Jesus and Maritza and Jesus took photos with their own camera on the tour which turned out great and shared them with us via text. Basically we met some kind fellow tourists, I want to be clear photos were not part of the excursion package. I would have loved to have been able to hang out after the tour, and chat, but we had a family lunch to get to. Armadillo was very knowledgeable as a guide, he shared that he had been a surf instructor since 1993 and he showed us a sea cucumber as well as a sea urchin. We were given enough time to snorkel as well as a relaxing paddle back to shore. I would recommend this tour if you are looking for a nice day out on the water. My husband and I came from California and although we are used to sun, I would recommend sunscreen and a hat. Enjoy and Mahalo. :)
