Carlos was an excellent guide. Informative and helpful. Swimming with turtles was amazing. The kayaking instructions were clear and helpful. A beautiful three hours. Of note, the booking says snacks and water provided. Not really! Bring your own.
This is the a fun experience to kayak and see many sea turtles

Armadillo, our guide was so awesome. We had an amazing time kayaking and he brought us to a soot where we saw many sea turtles and huge ones too. We didnt even realize that hours have passed by. He was very cool as well. Highly reccommended
Amazing time in Makena Bay!

Carlos was an amazing tour guide! Very caring and fully explained everything. We are seasoned kayaker, but the kkds weren't and then they we very comfortable in Carlos's skilled hands. Truly amazing and a good time for all. I wouldn't bill this as something for 5 year Olds unless they are really good at swimming in the open ocean. Teens, 10+ maybe but I don't recommend for super beginners. You go pretty far out and an unexperienced person may get tired, especially if the wind picks up like it did for us. We had to really dig to get back. Launching and landing are always my favorite parts. 😍
Amazing! Just book it!

We were a group of 6 girls with tour guide John who was great! He made sure we were always comfortable and looked out for us at all times. He also looked ahead for marine life and pointed out unique animals. He went above and beyond when one of our girls got seasick and made sure she was safe and on shore!
Loved watching the sea...

Loved watching the sea turtle come out of the cave! It was magical! Our guide John was very informative and we all had great conversations. Would highly recommend to one that likes adventure.

Booked this adventure for my honeymoon. Night before scheduled a ride that didn’t show tried to get a taxi it showed 30 minutes late. Person who I talked to on the phone was not very understanding would not give refund or even partial. Will not book with them
Fun Kayaking Adventure

John welcomed everyone and did a great job to ensure all kayakers had a good time. He is a people person and knows the area really well. He also spotted turtles and other things before we knew it was there. Highly recommend this tour if you want a safe adventure and want to do some exploring on the water!
A lovely morning
, Apr 2021
Although the weather wasn’t as desired the experience was awesome. I recommend taking something for motion sickness if you get sick because ocean waters move more than a lake and it did get me for a bit. I powered through and enjoyed fun facts about Hawaii, the sea life, and the views. When we got to snorkeling we did get to see beautiful turtles and fish. The morning was wonderful and I would recommend this to anyone. Our guide was lovely and a funny nice guy full of cheer. We are thankful we got him as our guide. Happy travels!

Beautiful day

Our guide, Leah, was fantastic. She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly. We were disappointed that we didn't see much besides a couple statuettes. We do understand that conditions are different each day.
