All around impressive company. Excellent job of rescheduling and relocating to match weather conditions. Great pre-trip communication. Top equipment and guides. And the whales really cooperated 😎

Fantastic experience with Griff as our guide. He was very knowledgable, patient, and a great guide. We saw and heard whales up close beyond any of our expectations. Great way to experience Maui!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience kayaking - A whale swam directly below us while singing - we could feel the vibrations and see the white fins thru the crystal clear waters of Maui. There much whale activity the morning of our trip. Our guide, Peter was very knowledgeable and had shared much insight into the culture, language... More

I've taken a lot of kayak and paddle board tours on Maui, but these guys are the best! Their guides are so knowledgeable and engaging. We saw so much whale action and I'll never forget it- it was incredible! Not to mention snorkeling with the turtles- our guide got some really rad pictures of us with the turtles. You also... More

Great kayak tour, we saw whale and dolphins close up, our guide was great. Weather was bad and the tour got cut a little short, so they refunded us a some of the cost. They did mention a snack and drink in the description and there was not, not a big deal but we would have brought some. Overall they... More

This was by far the best kayak trip we have experienced. We paddled out shortly after sunrise to see a mother whale and her calf surfacing. It was beautiful! Then, it just got better. More whales appeared as if on cue. The large animals are so graceful, and seeing them atop a sea kayak is something we'll never forget. On... More

Went on a private whale watch with Michelle on 2/2/17 and had an outstanding day. We have been on several tours but never one as good as this one. Michelle is knowledgeable but not over the top with island and whale facts. She is very laid back and easy to talk to. Can't wait until next year! John & Carol... More

Our experience was excellent. The scenery and ocean was amazing. Griff was an awesome guide! He did a great job educating us on Hawaiian culture, whales, turtles, coral reefs and much more. He also did a great job of setting expectations for the trip and although we were hoping to experience whales while on the excursion, he explained it may... More

I loved our trip with Aloha Kayaks. It was so wonderful to feel so connected to the water and to the whales. When you're in the kayak and they spout on the surface, even if you're far away you can still feel it because there is no loud motor from a traditional whale boat running. It's a much more intimate... More

We go out with Aloha Kayak at least once a year. Always a great time-always see lots of whales. You won't regret choosing them
