We went kayaking and snorkeling with Steve from Maui Eco Tours. Departure was from Makena Landing around 7.30 am after we received some paddling instructions right next to the beach. Steve kept using/teaching us Hawaiian phrases. It was a lot of fun and he had a great personality! We were five people including him.
Out in the ocean we stopped and snorkeled at two different locations, both part of the "five caves" area. The coral formations here were beautiful. There was no abundance of fish but instead we got to swim up close with giant sea turtles and that made it all worth it to us. Steve had brought water, snacks and soft drinks. Oh, and we saw spinner dolphins too. The length of the trip was perfect. We were a little bit cold after 2,5 hours and wouldn't have wanted to go to a third snorkeling spot anyway at that time.
This was really a great morning activity! The price was right too. I just wish I had brought an underwater camera!
