We recently went on the Blue Lagoon Tour with Kayak Kauai. First the good parts:
The tour is an amazing one. We are relatively new kayakers and first time snorkelers. The kayak ride up the river and then to the Hideaways beach was a wonderful one. The weather was perfect and the sea on Hanalei Bay was beautiful that day. The snorkeling was very close to the shore and in a safe environment. Jesse, our guide, was very helpful and knowledgeable. He helped us be very comfortable with snorkeling by providing extra floats. The sandwiches they provided us for lunch were also good. We enjoyed the tour a lot.
The reason, I am not giving them a 5 star review is for the following reason:
We had read some negative reviews about the punctuality of the organization, and sure enough, they were late. Our email said a checkin time of 7:30am. We arrived at the shop at 7:25m and no-one was there until about 8am. The tour that was about to start at 8am started only at around 8:25 am after we had packed our things in dry bags and signed the required paper work. The folks are all helpful, and gave us a complimentary gift to make up for the lost time. But I hope they stick to the times they promise.
Finally, as a few of the previous reviewers said, this tour is excellent for beginners. If you can read the sea, just rent a kayak/boat from them and head into the bay.
