Great Experience
, Jun 2021
We truly enjoyed this kayaking and snorkeling trip. Enjoyed snorkeling around several sea turtles. Our guide also took us to a cave to deep dive into. Our guide was great and gave tons of history of the islands. Definitely must do!
Best kayak and Snorkel

Our instructor was amazing, down to earth, knew so much information about Hawaii and had many stories to tell us along the way!! The trip was perfect even with a few hiccups we had a long the way. My son got to scared to snorkel so I had to stay in the kayak with him and the group left to see an amazing coral reef. I was saddened by it , but the instructor was great and accommodating. The whole group made my son feel welcomed and he even got see a urchin even though he didn’t snorkel and that was the highlight of the trip! Would love to go again maybe this time just me and the hubs

Good to hear. Guides have to be pretty flexible and handy to manage each day on the water. Stuff happens that's for sure. Glad the guide managed the situation and you had fun!
