What to expect
No experience is necessary on this kayak and snorkeling adventure. If desired, your guide will provide beachside paddling instruction before you launch into the water. You’ll head along Maui’s southern shore, past Little Beach and Big Beach, out towards La Perouse Bay. Admire the scenic views from the water while your guide provides commentary about the island.  Then, hit the water! Snap on your snorkel gear and peer into the exotic marine life below. Glide past colorful coral reef, schools of fish and a green sea turtle or two. If you’re up for the 4.5-hour excursion, lunch will be provided along the way.

Breathtaking Experience
Jul 2021
This will be an experience I remember for the rest of my life. As a first time snorkeler and non-swimmer, our guide was very patient and gave great pointers. Saw plenty of turtles and colorful fish!

Memorable Experience w/ a Great Guide!
Jul 2021 • Family
Tyler was our guide, and he was absolutely outstanding! From the moment we arrived, he was super friendly and funny, and made us feel very confident and safe! He gave a great safety demonstration, and led us gently out to the water.

We had a great paddle, and Tyler took us to a beautiful snorkeling spot. Our group was fairly inexperienced, but Tyler was super encouraging, and helped us with our snorkel gear one by one.

The snorkeling was wonderful. The reef was nice and clear, and we do an abundance of sea creatures. If you’re looking for sea turtles, you will not be disappointed. We saw multiple green sea turtles in close proximity!

Once again, thanks to Tyler for making this such a memorable experience!

Good Snorkel Experience in South Maui
Jun 2021
This was a good experience. My wife and I have done a few kayaking and/or snorkel tours previously, and our guide Jeremiah (goes by Miah) did a great job taking care of a group with a mix of experience levels. Helped us find several turtles in the reef and showed us the lava tubes in a different spot. Worth it!

Experienced? Stick with a rental
The ease of scheduling, paying, and pre-tour communication were great. The price was decent as well.

However, there were a couple things that drove the rating down. First, on site, the vehicle has no identification, making it difficult to locate in a sea of other kayak your companies. Second, while I recognize the conditions may not be great, the reason one hires a tour company is to know that ahead of time and locate an appropriate spot. Finally, the tour guide rambled on about “the COVID,” didn’t wear his mask over his mouth while gathered together, and gave no clear objectives, and targets. It was largely wandering around aimlessly for 75 minutes while he found a suitable spot not far from the beach from which we launched. I will add that he did give clear launch and return instructions, which are most useful for inexperienced adventurers.

I wish I could rank 3.5/5, but having to choose, I got more out of a self guided venture than I did with this tour.

Once in a lifetime experience!
Thanks to Curtis, our experienced host of the seas, we were able to see a momma whale and baby! Kayaking out from Makena beach, we also saw a sea turtle, then onto the whales. Curtis gave us options and also kept us entertained with facts about whales and the area. Fantastic viewing and was well worth the visit! Snorkeling wouldn’t have worked with such a high surf, but we didn’t care because the whales were incredible.

Amazing experience with the whales!
We had an amazing time with Curtis taking us out to see a female humpback whale and her baby. We never did get to snorkeling because the experience with the whales was too fantastic! Curtis was a great guide and filled us in on the animals we saw and the island itself. Great experience, though we were really fortunate to see the whales like we did. Highly recommended.
