Our guide, Carlos, was excellent--very encouraging and helpful for new sea kayakers. The morning was so beautiful that he extended the dive times a full hour more than scheduled. He was knowledgeable about the sea life, great sense of humor. This was a much more intimate experience than snorkeling from a boat, although physically more demanding. My ONLY complaint is that Parking is not included in the info. Only after meeting the passive aggressive unofficial parking attendant are you informed where to park. Please start including it in the excursion information.

Tour guide Carlos was great to connect with everyone in the group, as we all paddle at different speeds. He has the Aloha spirit. Got to see sea turtles first time out, which was a great experience. Only ding is that 5-6 companies launch from this site and it was unclear which group we were part of, and was not clear, as our group had unmarked vehicles.

We had a great time on the excursion. We took the kayaks out to a reef and saw plenty of fish, turtles and monk seals.

Had a great time in this small group adventure! John is an excellent guide/snorkeler/kayaker/instructor and also not bad with a camera. Would recommend this to anyone that enjoys kayaking and snorkeling.

Me and my husband had such a blast! Not only is kayaking in Maui a beautiful experience but Carlos made it even better! He had a positive attitude the whole trip and truly loves what he does. The waters have been really murky lately and past trips were not able to snorkel. Carlos said we are really blessed/lucky because the water hasn’t been this clear in a while! Carlos made sure we saw some sea turtles! Snorkeling was great.
