This was an amazing unique experience. Our first time in an outrigger canoe..neat! Staff are very attentive and cheerful and fun! Seeing the Manta Rays come to eat and swim so close to you is very surreal and so amazing...worth every penny!

What a great time! First and foremost, the crew was amazing, super friendly, informative, and full of patience for the inexperienced. Secondly, the canoe is the way to go, so much more fun than a bigger boat. It is a traditional Hawaiian style double canoe....More

Awesome experience! Friendly crew. Love the canoe paddling versus riding on the big tour boats. More intimate all the way around for a better experience for the same price.
