We had a private 2 hour SUP lesson for our family of four, including our 21 and 18 year old daughters. It was our second time on a paddleboard, first on the ocean. Laurie and Melena were our guides. They took us around turtle town and pointed out places and sea life, including several sea turtles. We had the opportunity... More

This review is so hard for me as it was a great day. They start the day teaching you all about the experience and how ecofriendly they are which is amazing. We went out, me, my husband and my 10 year old and it was a great day. When we got to the snorkel spot, my husband and my childs... More

We did the Kayak/snorkel trip from the Ritz Carlton as we were staying there and it was the highlight of our vacation. We were the only 2 people on the trip and the reef we went snorkeling was beautiful and uncrowded. Highly recommend this operator!

We did the kayak tour to Turtle Town with Chris and this is by far our best experience in Maui. He was an incredibly knowledgeable guide and knew the best places to take us to avoid the crowds and experience the beauty of the reefs!! Definitely a "must-do"!!

Our 13 year old grandson took his first surfing lessons from Christopher in Maui. His introduction and instructions upon entering the surf immediately made him feel comfortable and confident in the task he was about to embark upon. We sat on the shore and watched him paddle out for the first time. It was amazing to see him take the... More

We had the best experience with SUP lessons. We chose the private lesson and I'm very glad we did. The instructor was so knowledgeable and went at our pace. They take lots of pictures with a Go Pro and send them very quickly. We saw sea turtles and had a great time out on the water.

In addition to kayaking and snorkeling, Through our guide, we learned many things, like what kind of fish and turtle we saw on the tour, the eco system around the Maui area and what we can do to take better care of it. It was just fun... More

Booking was easy over the phone. My husband and son had a private surf lesson with Chris. He was very nice and knowledgeable. They got a briefing on land and then quickly headed out to surf. They both got up on their first try! Unfortunately the Go-Pro camera broke at the very beginning of the lesson so only a couple... More

We had a private paddle boarding lesson in "Turtle Town" in Maui, and it was amazing! Laurie was great and really helped us figure out how to paddle board. My two kids, 15 and 19, loved it, and the turtles would swim right up to us. Later that afternoon, Laurie emailed us pictures she had taken with her GoPro. Hawaiian... More
