My husband and I wanted to do something fun and memorable while in Maui and boy was this it. While the waterfalls in Maui are cool, nothing beats being in the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Patrick, our tour guide, was amazing! We did a private tour so we got that one on one attention, which I highly recommend. He was very... More

I did a tour out of Makena Landing with Patrick and Peter, and I didn’t want it to end. Never having kayaked before, I was a little worried, but it’s super easy. The water was calm that day, so paddling was effortless. Peter and Patrick told interesting stories on the way to the snorkel site. And they seem to really... More

Peter, one of the owners was our guide, we were 6 on the tour. You really felt the aloha, it was like a trip with friends. Peter is an allaround nice guy and you quickly get that he knows what hes talking about, alot of interesting information about land, sea and culture, all in the right amounts. And the spots... More

We did a 3 hour trip that started at 7:15 am. At first our teen and twenty-something were whining about getting up early during vacation. Once we got on the water all complaints stopped. We all had a wonderful time. There were 3 families in our tour ranging in age from 6 to 66. Griff & Patrick were great and... More

Our guide was Griff, as “local” that’s been on the island for over 16 years or so. Griff took excellent care of me and my family. We’ve been on many kayaking trips and the guides have been pleasant, but Griff understood the importance of our trip. He didn’t make it seem like he was just repeating the same lines, he... More

Peter had us on whales in late season within 20 minutes. Being 30 feet from mother and calf in kayaks with your family is a once in a lifetime experience. This will be our greatest memory of Hawaii. The launch point is Makena Landing. We did a deluxe tour and had a private trip. After whales, saw about 30 turtles... More

We throughly enjoyed our tour with Aloha Kayaks. Our guide Peter was great, we plan to request him again in the future! He also was a great resource for our lunch stop after the trip.. We paddled out and had a whale surface not too far off and swam with sea turtles. Such an amazing experience for our group.

We were lucky to only have our family of 3 and one other woman on our trip. We put our valuables into a provided waterproof bag and it was tied to a kayak. We were all given snorkel equipment that was also tied to the kayak. We left promptly on time. As soon as paddling out, we saw humpback whales... More

Had a great trip with Peter in late March 2015. Kayaked off the west side, small group of only four of us plus Peter. Very relaxed trip, at the end of whale season saw a TON of humpback whales, some very close to us, followed by snorkling with turtles. Peter was knowledgeable and fun to hang out with, paced the...
