“The Historic Nuuanu Battlefield Hike was so interesting! Beautiful views yes, but the battle story was very intriguing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2012

The mountains area was beautiful and lush! Makani really made it fun with his character and way of storytelling about the area. But most interesting was the story of the battle - we walked the same line as some of Kamehameha's armies...and the hike was refreshing. It was a secret like path, heavily covered in bamboo and florals...real Hawaii. Makani was very attentive and sure to adjust his pace to your abilities. He had a lot of knowledge about the history of the islands which was unique in comparison to other guides I've had...definitely a great morning:)

“SUP, Fly Fishing and Snorkeling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

My wife and I spent three days w/ Keawe Adventures and Makani. We both took SUP lessons, went fly fishing and had an amazing snorkling trip to Hanauma Bay. Each of the experiences were exceptional. While we did not catch any bonefish I did pick up some fishing tips and got some quality casting lessons. Since our trip to Hawaii we have bought our own SUP baords and use the lessons taught to us by Makani. The sun rise trip to Hanauma Bay was awesome. We talk about it and show off our photos still. Makani and Keawe Adventures was outsdtanding!

“Flyfishing and Hawaiian History.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2012

Booked a half day flyfishing tour for my son and myself. Was promptly picked up by Makani Christenson at the designated time. Makani is very personable and talked about various historical points of interest along the drive. This led to very interesting discussion about the history of Hawaii, so much so that I later went out and bought a book to read more. At a beach park, Makani introduced us to flyfishing and discussed the equipment and had us practice casting on land. We then waded along a shallow, reef practicing what we learned. Makani spotted many Hawaiian bonefish, but my untrained eye was unable to spot them. Unfortunately, we did not catch any, but I guess that is why it is called "fishing!" We finished with a picnic lunch at the beach park. Makani had taken several pictures along the way and emailed them to me. Overall, a fun, leisurely introduction to flyfishing which we will definitely do again.

“Wow !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

We went to Wakiki in feb. We had a wonderfull time with Makani and his friend. ! It was my first time snorkeling, I was unable to keep my mouthpiece. It was really hard for me and Makani took the time to help me . He taught to me how to stay calm and breathe almost normaly ! A short time of for me was enough and he didn't push me to do something it could have been too difficult. I
Before we went to that beautifull bay I forgot the name, Makani talked about the story his island. We learned so much. Since then, I cannot .about Hawaii the same way. My husband and I want to go back and do some hicking with Makani.
If you meet him, you will love Hawaii!!

“Oahu Surf Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2012

I had an amazing time in Hawaii, thanks mostly to the incredible guidance provided by Makani Christenson and Keawe Adventures. He took us to the best surf breaks (with knowledge of how they were breaking on that day)... where we surfed some of the best waves of our lives! We would have never found these waves on our own. It was much safer having him as our lifeguard in the water as well... telling us where to paddle out, and which areas to avoid. He also showed us the way to the best food on the island!!

We surfed 7 hours on our first day, and 5 hours the second and third days!!

If you want an incredibly efficient surf adventure on Oahu or any of the Hawaiian islands, call Makani.

Here is a youtube link to the video I made of our trip. You can see how much fun we had...
