My wife and I are experienced ocean kayakers and wanted to kayak while here in Hawaii. Despite calling just as they were walking out the door and then arriving 30 minutes late - sorry, we got lost - the guides were cheerful, upbeat and attentive to the various levels of kayakers on the tour. After leaving the boat ramp, we paddled for about 20 minutes and took a break, allowing everyone to regroup and rest before moving on. We then continued on for another 20 minutes or so, with the guides pointing out things and answering questions. Once we arrived at our destination, we snorkeled, went cliff diving for those that wanted to, and went ashore for sun, rest, drinks, and snacks. Since none of the other guests had any place they had to be, the guides extended our time on the water and were able to make up for the missed time due to us being late. A BIG Mahalo and shaka to Jazmine, Brent, and Deeanna.

Jazmine and Madeline were really friendly had an amazing attitude and were very clear with the instructions on how to use the paddles and what to do and what not to do this was our first time doing it and they gave us all the helped we needed and answered all our questions over all we had an amazing experience I accidentally dropped my watch in the water and jazmine jumped into the water, looked for the watch and brought it back up she literally saved my watch and my son also dropped his glasses later on the tour and again she dived down to grab the glasses really really recommend this tour 10/10

We enjoyed our kayak tour of the bay and surrounding area. Easy to find and park. Our guides were super friendly and knowledgeable of the area and the history of Captain Hook. Great area to snorkel with some nice views. You don't really enter any lava caves - the description is a little off but you do approach one, take a picture and paddle backwards. Glad we did it - the waters are not too calm so it was good exercise and a nice day for it.

This was an awesome little morning kayaking adventure! Izzy our tour guide was legit and a kayak pro. He was patient and great teacher. It was the first time we’d ever ocean kayaked. It’s 3 miles and could be challenging for some. Everyone kayaks tandem with a partner. chose to rise to the challenge tho and it totally paid off. The cave cliff jumping into the water was super thrilling and just the feeling of accomplishment at the end. Worth every penny. Definitely do this!
