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!

My sister and I booked surf lessons at 10am and then our husbands had lessons at 12. There was originally a bit of confusion about our booking but the team that was at the surf location quickly fixed it and were very helpful and kind about it all. We had an amazing time! We ended up being the only people booked, and the waves were bigger than usual so the extra attention from the instructor was great. We also saw a whale and a sea turtle while surfing. It was so much fun and if you have any interest in trying surfing I would highly recommend Eco Tours.

We went on a 4.5 hour kayak tour with Garret on Jan 29, 2016. What a fantastic experience! We did some whale watching & saw a mother whale nursing her calf...pretty cool. Garret shared lots of relevant facts & information along the way. We then snorkeled at two different spots- both were beautiful. It's hard to describe the peacefulness and sheer awe of swimming with sea turtles (yes, WITH!) while hearing the whales singing under the water...pure bliss! Garret then skillfully managed to get us back to shore gracefully- no tipped kayaks- no bruised egos! Was a wonderful day!

Rusty was a wonderful guide. We were a little nervous that sharing a kayak would test our marriage but we survived. Rusty was friendly and informative. The early time frame was perfect and we were fortunate enough to encounter 3 sea turtles. If you're looking for a fun easy going tour this is a great option. Rusty suggested one of our favorite eateries in Maui for lunch - Deli 808. Be sure to check it out and ask for Rusty as your guide for kayaking.

Our family had an absolute great time! Roger at Maui Eco Tours was very helpful and accommodating on the phone when I had to call back and reschedule the date of our activity due to a conflict with another activity we had planned. This was the first time our daughters ages 6 and 5 kayaked and Garrett was simply wonderful! He made sure to go over all of the safety measures we needed to know as well as what he would be doing in order to keep us all safe which was very important and key given that we had our little girls with us. Garrett was highly knowledgeable about the marine life and the surrounding islands. Garrett snorkeled with us and lead us to the area where we would see some turtles. We saw a couple of turtles and that was amazing! At one point our youngest daughter said she was cold and didn't want to be in the water anymore and Garrett said it wasn't a problem she could hang out on the kayak with him while the rest of us continued to snorkel. Thank you Garrett for your patience with our family and keeping an eye out for those "mermaids". Our family had an incredible time and we would highly recommend this trip to everyone and if you can request Garrett do so!
