Clear Kayak is the way to go. Easy, professional set up and instruction. You are on your own with a great view of the ocean floor, reefs, fish and turtles. If you are not into snorkeling with large groups or for personal preference, this is the way to go. Staff is knowledgeable of the areas to kayak into for viewing... More

Although we seem to have done this on a morning when there weren't many turtles around, I'm assuming that was the exception and others will generally have better luck than we did (we just saw one beautiful big turtle coming up for air). Derek did a good job of staying in touch before our kayaking day, getting us ready that... More

These kayaks were excellent! Looking through the clear bottom was extremely beautiful! The instructor gave us clear instructions and suggestions. A sea turtle swam under my kayak! Would so totally do it again!

My wife and I are here on our honeymoon. We aren't the super athletic or adventurous types. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed the clear bottom kayaks. Easy to paddle and navigate. Was easy to get close to the rocks without losing control. You can get a regular kayak experience anywhere, but the clear bottom kayak was perfect for seeing fish,... More

Have been to Maui many times and discovered many unique places and experiences. CKM is still on our must do list every year! Derek is a terrific host and the experience is unforgettable. This year we brought another couple, as well as our daughter and her boyfriend... and they're still talking about their CKM experience! Tips: - book in advance... More

Had a hard time finding any coral let alone any turtles. Pretty choppy waves the day I went. Need either better directions or a guide - someone who knows exactly where Turtle Town is. I would go back again if those conditions were met.

This was a great adventure. My wife and I went to days after the hurricane asked Maui so the water was very choppy. We still saw at least one turtle and a lot of cool fish. We cannot wait to do it again next year when the water is a little bit more clear. A definite must do

Met Derek at Makena Landing and decided to book a clear-bottom kayak excursion. Using the website to book was a snap. Derek greated us with a smile at the appointed place and time. Provided appropriate guidance so that everything went without a hitch. Saw plenty of turtles in their natural habitat. Happy to recommend CKM.

We saw 3 turtles. The staff is helpful, patient, friendly, prompt, and considerate. The only (-) thing is that in the intro before we went out into the water I recall him telling us to wait in the water and he would come get us. Well that didn't really click with us as to why because we kayak a lot... More

My fiance and I have been wanting to kayak out in the ocean the past several years we've come to the islands for vacation. Glad we finally got to do it. My fiance found Clear Kayaks Maui while looking for stuff to do on Maui. He booked the excursion online but we had to pay when we met up with... More
