Everything was wonderful! You will see many different types of ocean life and sacred areas. Bari took his time with our group and really gave us a great experience. There was no hurry and they made sure to actually educate us before getting in the water.

We booked the SNORKEL & SPEAR FISHING excursion. This is the BEST trip ever! To quote our son "Bari treated us like family! Thank you mom & dad" We enjoyed refreshments while Bari (owner)explained about the different fish & coral. We were the only ones on this excursion, Bari (our guide)made our boys feel as though they could actually spear... More

We spent several hours today with Bari (owner) who was so personal with each of the guests in our party who had various levels of experience in the water. I have been to Hawaii several times and NEVER had this amazing experience to the level that we received today. We also learned how to be responsible and respectful to the... More

Nice kayak rentals and good service. We've reserved the kayak in advance to be on a safe side. But when we came to the Hawaii Pack and Paddle office we've founded that it wasn't necessary because there was many free kayaks. All you've got to do is to have an appropriate car to transport your kayak to the bay (we've... More

Bari is a great guide - even dives to show group individual fish. Bring sunscreen - my legs got burned I think in the kayak. Gorgeous scenery and great exercise.

Kaipo and Barry were fantastic! Kaipo took 5 of us out to swim with the manta rays and it was an experience we will never forget! Kayaking out of the bay to the Manta's and then swimming with them for over 2 hours! My sons were blown away! Kaipo was very sweet and so helpful with my boys and I... More

We had an excellent experience. Berry our guide/oceanic teacher was very knowledgeable, and passionate about the ocean and it's inhabitants. Kapo was also a wonderful guide, and we had a great conversation about history of the land and his families heritage. I highly recommend this outfit to anyone with children, my 13yr old son was mesmerized by all he learned... More

I could gush all day about how awesome our King's Tour on Kealakekua Bay was. Before going out, Bari gave a great crash course on the sea life we were about to see and kayak safety. Our guide Kaipo was so knowledgeable and patient with my friend and I, both first time snorkelers. We cruised out to the bay and... More

I cannot say enough great things about the day my husband and I experienced with our kayaking and snorkeling tour. Barry was our tour guide and his enthusiasm, knowledge and passion allowed us to enjoy the ocean and the beauty of the life that lives beneath the water. Barry personally guided us to the spots and identified all the beautiful... More
