This was amazing, Randy was so knowledgable, the canoe was really easy to paddle. It was just my girlfriend and I was worried I would be doing a lot of paddling but Randy and I and my gf paddling a bit were really flying. We learnt so much about Hawaii and the tradition of the canoe, heard some whales calling under water (but didn't spot any), went snorkelling at a few spots off the boat and saw a turtle and some fish. Thoroughly enjoyed the two hours we had on the water, the guide was really friendly, not rushed etc. This was one of the better tours I've ever been on anywhere in the world (over 50 countries visited).

We did the outriggers tour with viewing turtles with Kevin and it was awesome! He taught us about the Hawaiian culture, did a blessing and as we paddled taught us even more. He even taught us a song that we sang in the Hawaiian language! I highly recommend this and will do the tour again when the humpback whales are in!

Kevin, Damon and Jared gave us the most amazing surf lesson!! We not only learned a great deal about the native culture, we were serenaded by the resident surf lesson singer, Damon. Not kidding, he is seriously good. As for the lesson, my wife and I were riding 20 second waves immediately. Although we were blessed with great conditions, the instructions were amazing. I have surfed many times before, but this is the first time I was able to stand up and enjoy the experience! Amazing crew! Highly recommend! Mahalo!
