My family and I did a 3 hour trip with Steve at Olowalu. At first I thought it was a bit overpriced, but it was totally worth the money! Felt a tad disorganised at the start as we waited for people to turn up so it took a while to actually get into the water, but this wasn't a big... More

My partner and I did the kayak whale watch at Olowalu and it was simply amazing; the most recommended way to see the whales. We were the only two guests signed up for the day and I appreciate that the tour went on anyway. Conditions weren't ideal, but with patience we were able to get very close to whales, saw... More

We signed up for the whale watching kayak tour, however on our scheduled day it was much too windy to head out and look for whales. Instead our guides took us snorkeling to Coral Gardens and another place nearby. We had a great time! Our guide, Fitz, was awesome and was able to answer all of our questions about marine... More

I took the three hour Makena Discovery tour earlier this month. The meeting area was a little hard to find but so worth it! The guide, Garrett, was awesome!! He made me, a novice kayaker, feel completely comfortable, and was a font of knowledge. Before getting in the water to snorkel, he discussed the history of the islands and their... More

My 8 year old son and I did the Discovery Kayak and Snorkel tour with the Maui Eco Tours at the Olowalu site. Our tour guide is great, he has many years of experience, friendly and patient with my 8 year old. The water is calm, and the kayaking is fun and easy. The guide snorkeled with us in the... More

We did the Makena bay premier kayak/snorkel tour, and it was great fun. Garrett was our guide, he was attentive to all the needs of the group - quite tricky with a diverse set of 6 novices - whilst at the same time describing a detailed narrative of the geographical and anthropological history of the islands and ecology. The only... More

We booked a snorkel/kayak tour for a large midwest raised family. Our group included parents, young men, teenagers, and middle schoolers. We arrived on time and ready for a great morning. At first we didn't recognize the tour operator since his trailer and kayaks had another name on them. The guide was called "Uncle Steve". During the check-in/setup process he... More

We took our 7 year-old and Maui Eco Tours set her seat up in the middle of the kayak and fit all of us with gears and fit perfectly (how do they know our sizes). Oh, did I mention that I book the tour the morning of? There are only 3 other couples and a guide. Dan took us out... More

Dan, our guide, did a great job of guiding us to the prefect spot for snorkeling and was full of information...lots of coral formations, good variety of fish, sea turtles and lucky for us a whale right at the spot where we were kayaking (couldn't have ask for more). Snacks while kayaking and then lunch when the adventure was over...sandwich,... More

We had a wonderful kayaking and snorkeling experience on April 27,2013 with the help of Garrett. Indeed a unforgettable experience as we saw so many turtles, different kinds of fishes and a glimpse of a whale jumping while kayaking. Garrett also gave us an interesting information about the island. Two thumbs up! Highly recommendable....
