My husband, daughter (13), and son (11) did the kayak trip which included whale watching and snorkeling. Our tour started out with Garrett, our instructor, leading us out to where we could spot some of the whales. We saw a few in the distance and could hear them blowing and making all different noises as if they were right next to us. Garrett was fantastic and explained about the history of the islands around us, told us about the various marine life, and other interesting facts about Maui. I was so impressed with his knowledge and learned so many unique things. We paddled over after about an hour to a reef where there was the best snorkeling I have ever done. Garrett pointed out things that I would have never seen such as a large eel camouflaged in the rocks. There were so many turtles and one had about 12 fish eating the algae off its back - it was so incredible swimming next to all the turtles and the beautiful colored fish!! I would highly recommend this trip and ask for Garrett!
