Great experience. Griff was all you would expect in a guide- professional without being "stuffy", entertaining and knowledgeable. My wife was a little uneasy about the kayaking (because I have turned us over more than once), but he put her at ease. He told us what to expect, and then we exceeded those expectations. It was great sitting above the... More

I had an amazing time out on, and in, the water with Patrick. Whales everywhere since it was mid January. We kayaked, snorkelled and just sat quietly in the kayaks in the beautiful Maui morning and enjoyed the incredible environment. The equipment is in great condition and the kayaks are safe, sturdy but still nimble enough to allow you to... More

We highly enjoyed our kayaking with Griff. There was only one other couple with us which was great! We paddled out and got to see several whales. During our journey a brown booby landed on Griff's kayak making for some extra entertainment. We ended the excursion with some snorkeling and saw some turtles. All the while Griff was taking pictures... More

Based on trip advisor reviews we went with Aloha Kayaks for our whale watching/ snorkel kayak adventure. We really appreciated that there was a discounted rate for our 11 year old. Most companies charge full price for kids once they hit 8. We were so thrilled with our experience. Griff was our guide and we went out of Olowalu. Griff... More

Prior to this trip, we had already done outrigger canoe whale watching in the same area but since we had a free morning, we decided to try out kayaking and snorkeling with turtles too! Our guide, Peter, who is also the owner gave our party of 5 a quick briefing about the kayaks and how to row. We then went... More

My brother lives on Maui and suggested we take this kayak tour...Griff was our guide...funny, knowledgable about sea life and Maui history and very professional. We were able to see about 8 or 9 different whales, a few of which were only about 10 YARDS AWAY!! Sea turtles while we were swimming wrapped up the tour. So fun and I... More

By the suggestion of my childhood friend via FB, I called Griff right away and scheduled a private Kayak tour for 4 people! It was easy to do and we were booked the next morning at 6am! Our hotel shuttle dropped us off early in the dark at Makena Landing. There we met Griff and his energy was "above the... More

We did the kayaking and snorkeling adventure and had SO much fun! It was definitely at the top of our amazing list. We only had one other couple in our group and our guide was fantastic, fun and knowledgeable. We started out by kayaking out nearly 2 miles off shore to watch for whales. Then we kayaked back to the... More

My wife and I had an amazing kayaking tour. For first timers out in the water like that it couldn't have been more perfect! We saw whales and turtles. It was very informative and visually beautiful. We will definitely come back and refer friends.
