We had an amazing time. Guide was very helpful. We saw plenty of turtles and fish. My 4 year old loved it. Would definitely do it again.

We had a blast. The glass bottom kayak was a big plus. We didn't see tons of turtles like we thought we would and only a couple fish. Lots of coral and aneneme. We would go with them again.

We had an enjoyable time kayaking and being a bale to see all kinds of sea life including tours. It was one of our favourite experiences in Maui. Staff was friendly and the cost was reasonable

Absolutely wonderful experience. Derek is a great guy who makes you feel at ease especially if you've never done it before. We saw lots of turtles swimming, bathing and coming up close to our kayak. The clear bases in the kayaks are very good too...More
