We used Maui Eco Tours for a kayak/snorkel excursion. We had never done this before and it's our first time to come to Hawaii. We were all a little nervous. Our guide, Dan, was extremely patient with us and gave us lots information about the area. He took us to an area with turtles and we also saw a sting... More

My family, including my 11 year old, had never kayaked before. We booked the "Discovery Intro Tour" with Maui Eco Tours and it was fantastic. Fitz was our guide and he was simply fabulous. This was the perfect experience for us. Fitz was extremely knowledgable about the marine life and as a native Hawaiian, he was well versed in the... More

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
