We asked for a quiet, nature based kayaking experience, and that is just what we got. David was friendly, professional, and lots of fun! We surfed the waves in the bay, watched green sea turtles feed, and had a peaceful trip up the river. He was very good at assessing our kayaking skills and worked with us appropriately. We felt...

Dave is a record-holding kayak fisherman so I was looking forward to booking a trip with him. My expectations were more than met. Not only did we get hooked up with a bunch of papio, I like the fact he teaches sustainable fishing- take only what you will eat. He has great knowledge about the islands and provides interesting and... More

Our guide, David, was a wealth of information and extremely helpful. He was very concerned with our well being and was attuned to every aspect of our tour. He guided us on the kayaks, the hike and rock climb and rock jumping into the ocean. It was an absolute blast! Highly recommend David and Coastal Kayak Tours!

We were visiting our friends in Oahu, and I really wanted to go kayaking. I had pre-booked this tour with David to Chinaman's Hat and had really high expectations. David lived up to my hopes. We had such a fantastic time! The kayaking was wonderful and the hike, though a bit tough for my 49 y/o out-of-shape body, was beautiful.... More

Coastal Kayak Tours was the right fit for us. They were quick to communicate with us availability via email and were flexible with our schedule – we set the time and they met us there. We met on Haleiwa Beach and Dave, our instructor, already had the kayaks ready to go for us. Even though we were a mite late,... More

David is an amazing tour guide. The six of us from two different families went to china mans hat. David explained everything, and I even picked his brain about fishing as he is corporately sponsored. He happily informed me and I caught several fish on his advice.

As others have noted, David is an experienced and knowledgeable guide. Our group of 6 were experienced, but David took time to go over the basics and made sure we were set before heading of on our 3 hour tour around Haleiwa. We were guided to secluded beach spots where we saw plenty of turtles and other sea creatures. Dave... More

Our family of four signed up for a tour with David and Trina with Coastal Kayak Tours. The day came and it was not safe for us to be out on the open seas. They met us anyone to help give us ideas on what other things we could do with that day and rescheduled our kayak adventure. From the... More

My hubby, 2 daughters and I went on a kayak tour with David from Coastal Kayak Tours. We did the 3 hr Kahana Bay tour and had a blast! David is very fun and laid back but you can feel his passion about his sport and his home in Haleiwa. We learned a ton of local history and really loved... More

One of the highlights of our recent trip to the Hawaiian islands was our kayak trip to Chinaman's Hat with Coastal Kayak Tours. David our guide led us on a five hour excursion that was truly memorable. Our group included 2 people in their 50's and three teenagers, none of whom had any kayaking or climbing experience. David calmly and... More
