Coming from Canada a kayak trip in Hawaii isn't exactly what comes to mind when I think of Christmas. That being said this day will forever be remembered by my family and I as one of the best ever. After a couple dismal days, we lucked out and got awesome weather. Our guide Peter was an absolute beauty, even for... More

It's hard to review this harshly (which people will probably think it is) I enjoy kayaking; Peter the guide was attentive, personable and knowledgeable; the equipment was fit for purpose; and we saw turtles - however I was underwhelmed by the experience - the weather wasn't great, but i'm sensible enough to see through that. We had young kids with... More

Kayaking is pretty fun activity even when nothing else is going on - and with whales, it is truly a memorable experience. I was thrilled to see whales surface several times nearby (or what felt like nearby). That was followed by snorkeling among sea turtles which was also amazing. Peter was a wonderful guide. He got us smoothly launched and... More

We went on this tour yesterday morning with Griff as our guide. We arrived at Makena Landing a little after 7am and Griff was waiting with a smile and welcome. There were only 8 of us plus Griff which made for a small, friendly group. After a brief intro we got into our sit-on kayaks and headed straight out from... More

My boyfriend and I did this tour this morning, and I just have to write a review. For one, our group was very small, and we were able to ask all sorts of questions and not feel like we just one huge tour of people. For two, this is a company started by two guys, and you can tell they... More

What a great time kayaking and snorkeling off of Makena beach in Maui. Griff is great - knowledge and sincere with both instructions and the environmental preservation. The equipment was great. The snorkeling was awesome and even got to see a manta ray feeding (I'll try not to yell so loud underwater next time Griff!) Griff knows all of the... More

This was an awesome tour of the teeming waters off the shore of the West Maui (Wilea/Makena) communities. Griff was a rare and welcome difference from any other long-term resident or native tour guide we had during our entire stay in Maui; the experience was enhanced as much because of his vast knowledge about Hawaiian culture, history and language as...

For two novice kayakers and snorkelers, Aloha Kayaks Maui and Griff in particular provided an incredible morning of kayaking and snorkeling. It was well planned, the instruction was clear and Griff's commentary really helped all of us understand the natural and social history of Maui. It felt like we spent time with an old friend whose knowledge and judgment we've... More

Griff was absolutely wonderful and made the whole experience valuable. He has great knowledge of Hawaii both in terms of sealife but also history and politics. We saw turtles and learned about Hawaii at the same time!

You should go kayaking and snorkeling with Aloha Kayaks Maui! The biggest thing I think that made them one of the best tours and snorkel trips I've been on is their small tour size. It allowed the trip to be personal and made me feel comfortable to ask questions about the reef, fish, and the Hawaiian history our informative yet... More
