“Best Kayak tour ever”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Our second trip with Griff and awesome as always, big group with kids 7-14 years old. He is a great educator and guide. Kayaked a little, saw a dozen turtles and cool fish. Kids spent an hour daring each other to swim under the arch. Snacks were primo and a great time was had by all. Don't miss it and stop by Mulligans at Blue Course for lunch on way home, also awesome:)

“A MUST in Maui”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We just enjoyed a beautiful morning with 16 of our friends and family being guided by Griff and his assistant Patrick. A fun paddle with Turtle sightings and interesting narration... When we got in the water we were treated to many fish in crystal clear water. The kids swam amongst turtles and swam through an underwater arch. I cannot state enough the OUTSTANDING service Griff and Patrick provided. They are both very kid friendly and attentive. This is a must for families on Maui!

“Great time for all”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Excellent experience with Aloha Kayaks out of Makena. We had 3 generations on the trip - 2 grandparents, 2 parents, and 2 tweens - and everyone had a great time. Peter, our guide, was very informative, but kept it fun for the kids. The tour was just the six of us - nice and small, unlike a lot of the other companies that were out on the water. Peter took us to uncrowded areas and made sure we got to see and swim with the turtles. Before heading back to shore, we were treated to fresh pineapple - very refreshing. This turned out to be everyone's favorite activity on our entire trip.

“Maui Family Kayak Adventure”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Aloha Kayaks Maui led us on an outstanding family adventure. Griff and Patrick were incredible hosts and outstanding tour guides. Not only did they provide great gear and great support but they also provided a fun educational experience for the entire family. The fresh pineapple was a welcome surprise. We had close up experiences with sea turtles, fish, eel, and even got to swim through an underwater coral bridge. It was an outstanding day and we would highly recommend Aloha Kayaks Maui to anyone looking for a first class experience!!!!

Our daughter said it was like being in school she learned so much.... But in a great way. Would highly recommend and will do this again in a heartbeat.....
