Steve took our group out and was friendly, informative, and very attentive to making our experience a positive one.

My husband and I did the sea cliff kayaking trip with garret. I must say, this was the best thing we did on the island. We paddled out and had some great whale experiences. We then went to 2 different snorkeling spots. The first was guided by garret along the sea cliffs. The second one was at the turtle station/sea... More

Beautiful morning kayak out and saw several whales enjoyed a beautiful time on water, Steve did good job of explaining things before we went out. The snorkeling was great Steve came in the water and pointed out many fish, found a small octopus showed us that. It was great day

We took a guided kayak and snorkeling tour with Guide Steve who had some 20 years of experience in Maui waters. The tour was good and Steve helped us with whale watching as we waited patiently to get up close with them. While snorkeling too Steve caught a little octopus, sea urchins by hand and allowed us to touch them... More

We were lucky enough to pick a beautiful day for our paddle, with calm breezes and smooth waters. Our guide Rusty, was fantastic -- personable, knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. Even though we had signed up for a whale watching tour and this turned out to be a snorkeling tour, it was still super enjoyable!

This was hands down the best kayak and snorkelling experience we did whilst on Maui or anywhere. Garret you are amazing! How you managed to coax my extremely anxious sister into the water (and remain there snorkelling for 2 hours) is extraordinary. A feat the other tours were not able to achieve! Your calm and approachable manner was just what... More

This was one of the best tours I have done in Maui. We spent a glorious morning with our guide Garrett, paddling along the sea cliffs of west Maui and diving in places that had amazing coral, fish and turtles. We were not too sure what this trip would be like, but Garrett was a great tour guide and took... More

We booked the Makena Landing kayaking and snorkelling your for 10:30 online - it was quick and easy. Within a day we were contacted to advise that the 7:15 tour would be more enjoyable as it is less choppy on the water. So we rebooked the time. We had a great experience! Jake our guide was super!

We had a great day snorkeling and kayaking at Makena Beach. Our trip was scheduled to take off from Ukumehame Beach but winds were terrible making conditions dangerous.
