This was not only an opportunity to paddle and explore the Mokes but to share an adventure with knowledgable and super nice guys while supporting a local Kailua family run business. They made the afternoon very enjoyable by personalizing the trip to our paddling ability and we felt safe due to their knowledge of the ocean. In addition to paddling... More

We went on the self guided kayak tour to Flat Islands and then Laniki Beach. It was a windy day and water was a bit choppy so it was very physically taxing. Enjoyed the staff at the store, great to go at our own pace and do as we wished. Really fun.

Captain Andy and Joi are the best kept secret in Kona! We appreciated the small group which made it like a small charter and extremely personal. Highly skilled and true professionals. We appreciated staying aboard until the mantas showed up, unlike the other guys. This strategy allowed us to spend our water time being awestruck instead of wasting energy and... More

5 stars is not enough! I am only bummed I haven't done this sooner, as it is so much fun, and will be a great way to enjoy the beautiful Mokes with friends and family in the future.

Jonny and his team were great, they made our canoe ride a perfect day. They took us to the Mokulua Islands and canoe surfing near flat island. We especially like all the Hawaiian history and the information about the flora and fauna. We have such wonderful memories on the ocean and then even rented bikes to see wonderful Lanilkai and...

We had originally booked a kayak trip but it was cancelled because of recent legislation so our concierge recommended this instead. It sounded like fun so I booked it for the four of us (2 teens, 2 adults). We were picked up from our hotel in Waikiki by Joy who is the wife of one of the guides. She was... More

Took the family on the 3 hr morning tour to Mokulua Islands by canoe. If kayaking, this trip is not recommended for young kids due to the distance and often windy conditions. However, by canoe, the whole family was able to ride/paddle together with an outboard motor doing virtually all the work with windy conditions. We met Chris, our guide,... More

We had a great time canoeing with these guys. They took us out to the twin island across from Lanikai. They were great from start to finish. I'd highly recommend them. Of all the activities we did in Hawaii this was the one with the least planning and the most payoff. Chris was really responsive when we were trying to... More

The 4 hour Kayak to the Moks was exhiliarating and a good workout. The high winds and waves added just a little danger and extra excitement. Our guides were professional, taught us all the safety precautions and encouraged and helped us through what was truly an adventure, Thank-you to Andy, Ka'iu & Greier. Also, Ka'iu had grown up going to... More

My husband and I took this terrific outing from Kailua Beach to the Mokulua (Twin) Islands yesterday. This is our first trip to Kailua and while we enjoyed the opportunity to paddle a bit, it was also nice to sit back and let the outboard motor do the work for a good part of the trip. The views from the... More
