We had a wonderful day. Our guide was Forrest. He talked non stop, but it was great he knew so many facts about area and Hawaiian culture. My girlfriends and I had a triple kayak and he helped us so much.🌺

Thank you very much for your review. The standard backrest is adequate for many kayakers who actually prefer the lower backrest. Many are on a budget and are grateful for our low rate. Studies indicate that increasing our rate to include the more expensive backrest...More
