Fantastic kayak and snorkel tour!
, May 2021
Griff was a fantastic tour guide and wealth of knowledge throughout the entire tour. He had a wonderful personality and presentation style and answered every little question any of us had about Hawaii, the sea life we observed, himself and anything else. It was one of my and my two grown children’s favorite excursions. He offered waterproof bags to put valuables in which was a nice plus so we could take phone, money and other items with us. Speaking of money, he made this tour totally worth the money and I gave him a big tip afterwards as everyone should when your tour guide adds so much value to your experience. Thank you Griff for a great morning on the ocean!
Great customer service

My review is based on customer service. Our tour was canceled due to wind and I appreciated the early call, apology, and immediate full refund. I hope to book it again in the future because it’s exactly what I was looking for.

We saw sea turtles and a shark!
, Dec 2020
We had an amazing time with Griff as our guide (although he wasn’t that funny.... juuuust kidding, he was hilarious but I joked I would write that in his review!!) my two kids ages 8 and 10 each went with me and my husband and sat in the front of the kayak. It was a total of 3 miles altogether. We saw some whale tails on our way out. We needed up snorkeling close to a rock wall where turtles love to be. We saw three sea turtles, a white tipped reef shark, and then gobs of different fish among the coral. They have dry bags so you can bring your phone along the way for photos and they provide you with snorkel gear and life vests. Griff was extremely knowledgeable about Maui culture and ocean life. And he was very engaging to the kids and keeping them involved!

We booked this at the last minute the night before and luckily it was only me and my wife with the instructor. It was awesome the level of knowledge he had. He showed us and explained to us many things that we were amazed about the area and the marine life. There were many fishes and beautiful Corals and we even saw several turtles within just feet from us. The price was higher than expected at first, but well worth the spent. The instructor was very sweet and helpful as well to my and my pregnant wife. We would definitely think of doing this again! Thank you!
