We had a great time kayaking with Red. It was a small group which was great for getting out and about. We saw many whales and Red was good at knowing have to navigate to give us the best shop at a close viewing. The snorkeling was also great in the area. I would recommend this trip to anyone that is looking for something different that keeps you active and engaged. No previous skill required on the kayak.

Capt Jay and First Mate Shannon were amazing, the breakfast and lunch served was solid, some fruit, a Turkey wrap cookie chips and local juices. The snorkeling was great we had some turtles join us which was phenomenal. On our way out we saw so many humpback whales and false killer whale dolphins which both can be really elusive then got to spend some quality time with spinner dolphins which was way cool

Roger was great! He took us out to see some whales and dropped a microphone into the water so we could hear the whales sing. He then took us to the turtle cleaning station where we snorkeled with the turtles and fish. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. I’d book again with him.

The tour started out strong with organized communication including what to wear/bring and an accurate conditions report. However, the guides offered zero guidance on how to maneuver the kayak or basic safety info. The reef was pretty dead so although we saw a few turtles and fish, we didn’t see much. When inquiring about specific species of fish/general reef questions we got some nonspecific responses mumbled back at us, the guide seemed like he was either inconvenienced by the questions or simply didn’t know much about the area. As the tour began to wrap up our guides started arguing and it was uncomfortable for everyone on the tour. Overall, I don’t think I would recommend as we didn’t feel very safe throughout the entirety of the excursion.

We really had no intention of signing up for a kayaking tour during our trip. But the idea of a “whale” watching kayak tour sold us. We were excited at the possibility of seeing whales from kayaks. The confirmation text the night before hinted to this would not be a whale watching tour, then once we arrived no mention of whales at all. We were just told we would be taken to look for turtles and fish, big dissapiontment. Are guide was nice but didnt stay to close and it was hard to hear his instructions as he spoke away from us. We get that whales arent guaranteed, but the lack of attempt and the failure to even mention whales was poor service. Overall not what was advertised or expected.

Captain Jay and Allison gave us an amazing trip today!! We saw full breach of numerous whales close to the boat. We saw so much activity and the knowledge of the whales Capt Jay and Allison have complimented by their awesome personalities made the time fly by. Definitely highly recommend this crew!

Great adventure! Roger was fully prepared with everything we needed. 2 adults, 2 teens - we kayaked and were able to see and hear humpback whales. It was truly beautiful! Then he brought us to a snorkel spot where we jumped off the kayaks and saw sea turtles, coral, and fish. Equipment he provided was in excellent shape and he was very knowledgeable about everything we did. We felt safe and so much fun! It was a great way to start our week in Maui.

Red was very knowledgeable, we had an awesome time learning about the whale migration and had some amazing encounters with whales and a sea turtle. Make sure you can swim decent and have some kayak strength. We encountered some wind so it a bit challenging but our favorite Maui experience.

My wife and I went on a kayaking tour to whale watch in Maui, near Lahaina. Overall the tour was a success as we were able to see quite a few whales and snorkel. We were paired with another couple, each pair in a provided kayak. Our guide had a lot of information to share as he was extremely talkative. The talking did get a little annoying when both whales were approaching and when we were traversing to and fro.
The website/flyer offered underwater camera rentals, however equipment operation was unreliable and very distracting especailly during the intermittent moments when whales were nearby. If you want photos, bring your own gear.
Average review since the guide brought us to where we needed to go, however there were many distractions that would have made the tour much better.

Have never been ocean kayaking before so with Roger’s guidance and instruction, we had a blast. We saw whales, fish and turtles. The whale sounds Roger made available to us were amazing. It was a great kayak/snorkel trip.
