“Great family time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We booked a private morning tour with Peter for Makena. As promised the kayaking was easy and Peter was knowledgeable of the extensive history of the island and surrounding geography. Peter is a natural conversationalist with a great sense of humor.We are pleased we booked an instructor and didn't decided to rent kayaks and go it alone. It was a beautiful morning with calm waters and blue skies. We went to a beautiful little spot and it was just our small group of four. As 99% promised we saw plenty of sea turtles and that was one of our biggest thrills during our time in Maui. Such gentle, passive creatures to swim with, it was beautiful experience. Its always great when you find an activity that keeps everyone equally thrilled! An added bonus was the picture album included in our booking, the pictures are amazing and will provide many great memories to share with family and friends.
Mahalo!

“Perfect, Relaxing, FUN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Our small group allowed for a very low key morning of easy kayaking enjoying the peaceful ocean with the gorgeous backdrop of Western Maui. Snorkeling was a welcome dip with no one around but us. Aloha Kayaks makes it seem like a morning outdoors with friends instead of a tourist activity!

“Amazing Experience with Aloha Kayaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

I called Griff at Aloha Kayaks hoping to get out to see the whales and the turtle cleaning station near Olowalu. He informed me that they were not doing tours out of this area on the day that we wanted, however, he was very accommodating and found us a guide to take us there anyway. Peter was our guide and had a lot of knowledge of Hawaii and the marine life. We were able to find whales during a time when it is not very likely to see them. One even swam directly under our kayak!! After this we went to the turtle cleaning station. He took us to a great spot where there were 7 turtles hanging out getting their shells polished. We really enjoyed the knowledge he was able to share and we never felt rushed. He allowed us to take our time and really enjoy the trip. I highly recommend this company; you will not be disappointed!!

“Aloha Kayaks in Maui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

My family and my sister's family all did a kayak trip together with Griff, that was just outstanding. Griff is so knowledgeable and so respectful of his surroundings, it was truly a pleasure to spend time with him and to learn from him. He gave us such a great experience with the whales and with the snorkeling, that we did a second trip with him to another spot, a week later, that was equally as special. Griff is truly an ambassador for Hawaii and its special places. Thanks so much Griff for very memorable experiences! I know that our girls will always remember.
Cheers,

“EcoGroovy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

My son and I went on the Makena trip last Friday, and we can't say enough about Griff and all of the incredible information he was able to share with us. Even though he has been a resident for 12 years, he characterizes himself as a "visitor," which speaks volumes about the respect he shows his group, the Island culture, and the environment. When I researched kayak trips, Aloha's website really matched how we felt about Hawaii and we were not disappointed. This company and its owners are true to their charter and my son and I intend to include this adventure in our future trips to the Maui.
