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

If you are staying at Turtle Bay, this is an excellent activity. The guides are friendly, the experience is safe and the scenery beautiful. I have done this twice and we saw turtles both times. A nice way to experience ocean kayaking, especially for beginners.

My wife and 3 teenage daughters and I truly enjoyed our time in the Kayaks with Will and John. We had a blast checking out the turtles and learning about the bay. My family really enjoyed heading out to the waves and riding them in. The crew were really professional and extremely helpful. Thanks guys ...great job!

Great time in and out of the water! They bring fresh pineapple and drinks during your trip! John was our guide and was informative about the island and history. It rained at the beginning of our tour, but your going to get went anyway so it made it that much better!

Picked up by van at the Adventure Centre at Turtle Bay Resort for 5 min drive to Kawela Bay. Our guides were John and Darren who provided instruction and safety information first. Started tour by paddling around protected Kawela Bay looking at turtles in their natural habitat. Glass bottomed kayaks were good given that turtles sometimes swim right under you.... More

I had always dreamed of seeing sea turtles first hand in the "wild" so this was a big deal for me and Shaka Kayaks did not disappoint. In fact, our guides John and Darren seemed to have a rapport with these beautiful creatures. I'm so glad we got to experience this AND get pictures! Even if we had not been... More
