The bay which Shaka Kayak helps you explore (if you are staying at the nearby Turtle Bay Resort) is small and protected, though the day we went out, the big winds and light rain caused some waves (small and fun to ride) in the enclosure where our guide, a lovely young woman, taught us about the water's most important resident,...

This was our first experience with kayaking and it was epic!!!! the only downside was it was raining as we set out but the rain stopped as we got in the water to begin our tour! This tour is a must!

Had a great time cruising around the bay with Shaka Kayaks. I'm not an experienced kayaker, but they quickly had me comfortable paddling around, even with some moderate waves. So fun to see the turtles popping their heads above the water, just feet from the tip of my kayak! Very mellow operation, comfortable and well put together but nothing fancy.... More

We really saw turtles while in the glass bottom kayaks. Outside the harbor the wavers were high but we stayed within the area, were very safe and enjoyed it all..

We loved this experience, so peaceful. Great to see the turtles. Also enjoyed the nature walk. Excellent guides, very relaxed and did not make us feel old! (we are in our 60s). Would definitely recommend, and would like to go again. Definitely a hightlight of our stay in Hawaii.

Our guides were wonderful (Keesha and Aaron) and did a great job guiding us on our kayak tour. We got to see tons of sea turtles and it was amazing! It was also so nice that they took our photos and sent them to us free of charge. Where everyone else charges you for this service, it was such an... More

We took the early kayak tour and had a great experience. Joe was a great guide and had a lot of good information. We enjoyed the boat flip when we were hit by a large wave also. I would do this again

Loved the staff -- our guides were super friendly and knowledgable of the history of the bay and the sea turtles. Definitely worth the money to go out there and see the sea turtles.
