LOVED our experience with John! My son and I went here as one of our adventures in Maui for his 13th birthday. The only thing that would’ve it made it more perfect was for more sun (in my opinion) but my son had a blast no matter what. Our guide/instructor was John who was not only incredibly thorough on safety but also has a crazy amount of knowledge on the Hawaiian islands, its history, its language and, of course, marine life! He jokes a lot with you and made my awkward/moody, just-turned-13 year old son feel confident and special. We learned a lot and would love to have this experience again with John but bring more family with us!

Super nice morning! Our guide John taught us everything about kayaking and told us a lot about the island and all creatures (including fish :-)). We can only recommend the tour!

Excellent adventure. highly recommend it. We got lucky and got great weather, ie. no wind. Even with a 715 start time water was warm enough to snorkel without a wetsuit.

Great guide! A wonderful experience. We were able to see several sea turtles while snorkeling.

Group 10 or less people - it was a great experience!
