We left from Makena Beach in Maui. Our guide, Jake, though young, was clearly experienced and knowledgeable. ( plus he was damned funny and entertaining! ). He really helped the couple on our trip who had never kayaked- and when they had such a hard time, he made it funny and we laughed so much! God, it was fun!
We kayaked in the ocean- exhilarating!- and snorkeled twice in 2 locations. Jake would free dive to the bottom and pluck some ocean creature- like a red pencil urchin- tell us all about it, let us hold it and feel it "breathing", then dive back down and carefully replace it where he had gotten it. Very cool and very respectful.
We saw manta rays and honu and many colorful fish. So much fun! We had beverages and snack bars.
We had the premier package, so after our tour, Jake directed us to a nearby food truck where our lunches were paid for and we had some great food! We were pretty happy with Jawz food truck.
It was a great experience and we couldn't have been more pleased. And we had a BLAST!
