It was my first time surfing and bought a private class with my husband. Sky was our instructor and he was extremely motivating and patient. We were able to do a few surfs and was amazing given our very first time. Also the photographer was amazing, her photos are very professional and gorgeous! Thank you for the experience!

My son, 13 took a private lesson with Devon and absolutely loved it. He said “he was the nicest person ever”. Thank you for your kindness and professionalism! We can’t wait to visit you again.

My husband and I have seen the Ka’anapali Surf Club for many years and never gave it a second thought. This year, saw folks out kayaking and decided that would be something different from what we have done in the past. We always try at least one new adventure while in Maui. A private 2-hour, 2-person kayak snorkel, getting up close and personal with the whales and other sea creatures, sounded like it would fit the bill. Set up our outing with Matt. Wind had been an issue for days and he selected a date in the near future. On the day of the outing, the ocean looked perfectly calm, sunny and warm. Met up with Joe, our guide, and off we went. After a brief lesson and safety briefing, we paddled out into the ocean looking for whales. It didn’t take too long, there they were! Mama, baby and a companion. It was majestic being near them (Joe made sure we followed the rules and didn’t get to close). They stayed near us for 45 minutes and turned, tails up and dove. Doesn’t get any better than this! We then paddled over to the Black Rock area to snorkel. We beached and Joe took us out past the rock and pointed out fish, turtles, an octopus and other creatures. Joe asked us to dive down to hear the whales singing. What a treat that was! Joe was a wonderful guide, knowledgeable and willing to hook us up to his boat if we got too tired to paddle (being 60 plus, that sealed the deal). Luckily, we were able to paddle all the way and loved it. I have been on many trips in Maui for a number of years. If you have any capability to paddle, do this trip. This is one of the best trips I have ever been on in Maui and that is saying something. The trip was so good, we went back and added more to Joe’s tip!

I had a great time with Joe on my Eco Kayak Snorkel experience! I was honestly spoiled because I was the only one who signed up for the 8am Wed. class, but I think it was because the forecast was calling for major wind. But luckily the weather was fabulous. But with that said I got the tour solo, so that was a cool experience but not likely for anyone wanting to sign up, but I just want to be honest with my experience, lol. Joe was very friendly and knowledgable about aquatic life and the state of Hawaii. He kept making sure I was comfortable and to see if I was cold. He spent like an hour trying to find me an octopus but couldn't find one. I felt bad but we found a sea turtle who swam with us and it was so worth it! It was humpback season so we heard the whales too. It was a journey I would never forget and I'm so glad I did it. I felt like I was in an aquarium. It was so beautiful seeing hundreds of different fish in all different colors! The only reason I gave 4 out of 5 is because at the end they were snarky with their remarks about giving a tip. I am all about giving tip for a good quality experience because I know that these people work for them but to put the customer in an awkward position about tip (and pretty much telling them you are waiting for it) is just terrible business.
