We enjoyed our time together as a family. It was quite windy the day we went out so we didn’t try to paddle over to the Mokes. We had varied experience levels and only one of us would’ve been able to make it out there. We would’ve liked to spend more time out. Obviously there’s nothing the business can do about weather. Oh, they said we could paddle the canal if we wanted. We didn’t. Tip: if the crew down at the beach offer help launching, take it, unless you’re a kayaking pro. It was quite comical how many refused, insisting they “got it”, when they clearly didn’t. Lower your pride, bruh. We did beach cleanup beforehand, which we enjoyed. Tip: if you’re doing beach clean up, you’ll find very little garbage because they keep it quiet clean. But the grassy area you have to walk through to get to the beach is on definite need of a little TLC so I’d start there. I can’t really give a shout out to any one person because everyone in and around the shop was kinda meh. Not necessarily happy nor upset. Just, there. There were a couple college-age individuals that seemed a bit more upbeat amongst each other but not really towards any of the guests. Oh. The two guys that helped us launch were cool - they listen to Rebelution 🎶 🤙 Good vibes Would we do this again? Yeah, I think we’d pay closer attention to the weather and take a chance on a same day reservation instead of booking ahead.

I have been in Kailua for three-months, and the fact that I see a constant train of folks going back and forth from the shop down to the beach day after day tells me they must be doing something right... So I decided I wanted to surf a local break and needed to rent a board. They were the obvious choice, being in town and nearby. Prices were competitive, the staff was super friendly and helpful, and the check-in/check-out process was painless. I definitely would come back here again!

Did the Kayak tour to the Mokulua Islands with my family and friends with our guide Brian. the best day in the entire holiday. the water was beautiful and Brian is an excellent guide. Definitely a must do when visiting Hawaii and you should ask for Brian, he’s simply the best. I’m blind and Brian was just super great at making sure my kids and I had a fun and safe time. Brian is one in a million! Normally blind people get told you can’t, with Brian I was told you can 😊 5 Star!!

Our guide Mike G took us out for a great trip to the Mokes. My 60+ yr old athletic dad always wanted to go so I wanted to make sure to make it happen. He manages rheumatoid arthritis with medication and was able to make the trip, with us feeling just a little sore the next day while both agreeing it was totally worth it. I add this info incase any grandparents out there want to take the trip - you paddle out against the wind for around an hour or just under and it's a decent workout , while the ride back is peaceful & relaxing. Mike was very informative with cultural history and we learned alot the local wildlife. The hike on the island was really neat and we got to snorkel with a sea turtle! Sandwiches and snacks were perfect. Recommend this tour, we had a wonderful time!
