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....

My teenage son and I had an awesome kayaking/snorkelling trip with Garrett ... it was our first time and we were really just keen to try kayaking - he was a great teacher and made it seem effortless! He had lots of stories, and was really well informed about the area and the whales ... made it fun and interesting!... More

We went out today on their kayak/snorkel adventure in Makena and it was amazing! Our guide, Dan, was very well informed and fun to be around. He would also dive down to show us various sea life and even take pictures for us. It was our first time on kayaks and snorkeling and it was a great trip out there.... More

We arrived about 30 minutes early because we didn't know how long the drive/traffic would be. Garrett was already there and set up for us to get ready. Garrett provided a bottle of water for those that forgot or wanted extra. A very quick safety briefing, some very helpful tips and we were off ahead of schedule. Unfortunately we went... More

Garrett provided my family with an incredible kayaking experience today. His knowledge, general disposition, and handling a group of 10 (3 family entities) provided an unforgettable experience. What we thought was a kayak excursion to turtle snorkeling areas changed into mainly a whale observing experience. I'm sure we were lucky as we heard the whale sing, saw the whale underwater,...
