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

My parents had very little experience kayaking and were a bit hesitant, so I wanted to choose a guide who would really hone in our preferences and needs. My parents and I went on a 3-hour tour of Kahana Bay. David's wife spoke with my mom on the phone several times before we booked, to make sure we selected the... More

My husband and I went on a 5 hour tour of Kahana Bay. David, our guide, emailed us beforehand so we could pick exactly the right trip. We found a couple of huge sea turtles. When I got seasick(forgot my Dramamine !)David helped me get to shore quickly. I hung out on the beach while my husband happily continued on... More

My family never kayaked before and my husband is like a cat in water. He had open heart surgery a few years ago and was concerned about his improving but still relatively weak shoulders. I looked for a tour that provided some water safety/ paddling instruction for beginners; education about the local ecosystem and history; a personal guide for just... More

My family of four (kids, 19 & 16) did the 5 hour Chinaman's Hat tour back in August. It was so cool to be on the island and looking back at Oahu. A beautiful sight! David helped to navigate my husband and son to the top of the Hat. My daughter and I went halfway. I can't imagine doing it... More

Really enjoyed the three hour kayak tour around Haleiwa with our guide, David. We loved seeing all the wildlife and very much enjoyed his stories about the history of Hawaii. He took care of all the kayaking equipment as well as snacks and sunscreen, so all we had to do was show up and go!

We had a great time with David on a kayak tour to Chinaman's Hat. It was just my partner and I on the trip and the personal attention was great. He knows a lot about the islands and was thrilled to share it with us. It was great getting outside and being active -- made me feel a lot less... More

Our family of 5 went on the 5 hour Chinaman's Hat tour. We all had a wonderful adventure and our 3 kids said that doing this was the highlight of our trip to Hawaii. I looked into other companies for tours but decided on this one because of other reviews and because I wanted a tour that included only our... More

My husband and I chose the three hour kayaking eco tour (and had I not been 6 months pregnant, we would have for sure done the longer tour) and had an outstanding time with David. Like other reviewers have stated, he's savvy to the Hawaiian history and culture and took us on a great tour. Our weather was a little... More
