The staff was great! Funny and knowledgeable! The snacks were nice and you get a free water bottle. We only saw one turtle but it was right next to us. Made sure we saw as much nature and told us about it all!

For $100/per person we were expecting a Kayak experience. What we got was really 2 hours of FLOATING in the bay. We asked if we could do a little exploring on our own, and were told no. I understand for Safety reasons why they said no. However be warned that you are mainly going to just float around. This is... More

This was our 2nd stay at Turtle Bay, a surprise for my husband's 50th birthday. Our Shaka Kayaks guides were amazing--very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. Even though the water was a bit murky due to the hurricanes, we still saw plenty of turtles, coral, and even a monk seal. If you're staying anywhere on Oahu, you don't want to miss... More

We stayed at the Turtle Bay Resort and went on the Shaka Kayak excursion. The guides were very entertaining and helpful and the kayaks were easy to maneuver. The bay that we kayaked in was gorgeous and we saw a lot of turtles. There was a short hike to the through the trees to the point and a little bit... More

We were told we would be guaranteed to see sea turtles on the kayaks and were not disappointed. We also took the kayaks into the surf which was fun! My son decked by a wave and fell so that was awesome! Great to go if you want to see turtles while at Turtle Bay.

Never have I had so much fun and learned so much while kayaking. Our guide Sean was GREAT, he made our kayaking on the ocean experience super !! When we first arrived they had warned us that items would get wet and might get ruined, but me being a picture freak insisted on taking my camera, Sean went above and... More

The guides were friendly and knowledgible, and clearly passionate about the Island. Instead of the hike, most of the group wanted more water time and we were accommodated. Be aware that if you get the tandem (two person) kayaks, they don't have the window to see what is below. I shared a one person kayak with my 8 year old... More

We took this tour with our nine-year-old daughter none of us having much kayaking experience. Both of our guides I believe their names were Dan and Darren were terrific they made the us feel safe and were very knowledgable and pointed out many interesting facts. The time spent kayaking and looking for turtles was the best part of the tour.... More

Great views and saw sea turtles. Water bottles are provided and a snack after the kayaking, which was nice! On the phone when booking, I was told that you don't have to be in good shape or experienced at all to go. I wouldn't really agree. Tons of paddling and exertion on this experience. Fun time, but be ready to... More
