Majestic Maui experience of a lifetime
Amazing experience to be right next to the sea turtles! Truly a must do while In Maui. Jeremiah was great guide and really informative on the area, ask him for things to do off the beaten path for sure.

Cody was the best!
Aug 2021
Cody was the best instructor for our beginners family! Besides one person capsizing the boat (which would be me), he was instructive, fun, and took us right to the sea turtles on our tour. It was so beautiful to be in the beautiful waters with our entire family knowing that he would keep us safe! I will definitely be back to see the whales! Thank you Kelii's Kayak Tours for an amazing experience!

John Hess is the best!
Aug 2021 • Couples
Can't recommend this enough. Wife and I were on our honeymoon and this was by far the coolest thing we did. We got to see a ton of cool fish as well as 2 turtles. Our guide John Hess was amazing and I feel like we got to spend the morning with a old friend.

Thank you for making sure we had a great time, Jeremiah, "Miah"! The water was vivid blue, we saw sea turtles, our guide, Miah, was experienced, knowledgable, and congenial. His humor put us at ease and our time on the water was the best part of our trip to Maui!! Mahalo!!

Best time ever!

We had the greatest time ever! The kayaking and snorkeling was absolutely incredible. We saw turtles and beautiful fish. Our guide Jeremiah was a lot of fun and really made my wife and I feel safe and secure as we headed out on our trip. We will definitely do this again on our next trip. Mahalo!

Breathtaking Experience

This will be an experience I remember for the rest of my life. As a first time snorkeler and non-swimmer, our guide was very patient and gave great pointers. Saw plenty of turtles and colorful fish!

Memorable Experience w/ a Great Guide!
Jul 2021 • Family
Tyler was our guide, and he was absolutely outstanding! From the moment we arrived, he was super friendly and funny, and made us feel very confident and safe! He gave a great safety demonstration, and led us gently out to the water.

We had a great paddle, and Tyler took us to a beautiful snorkeling spot. Our group was fairly inexperienced, but Tyler was super encouraging, and helped us with our snorkel gear one by one.

The snorkeling was wonderful. The reef was nice and clear, and we do an abundance of sea creatures. If you’re looking for sea turtles, you will not be disappointed. We saw multiple green sea turtles in close proximity!

Once again, thanks to Tyler for making this such a memorable experience!

Good Snorkel Experience in South Maui
Jun 2021
This was a good experience. My wife and I have done a few kayaking and/or snorkel tours previously, and our guide Jeremiah (goes by Miah) did a great job taking care of a group with a mix of experience levels. Helped us find several turtles in the reef and showed us the lava tubes in a different spot. Worth it!
