Full description

Everyone will want to enjoy the warm sunshine and cool, clear water of Maui in confidence and safety under the watchful eyes of our hand-picked team of educated, alert, and CPR-certified guides. First, we will paddle out into the Auau Channel in search of dolphins and manta rays. Returning to a private reef, your ohana will be amazed while exploring ancient coral heads and encrusted lava fingers teeming with life. Swim with Sea turtles, unique fish, octopus, and more! Don’t want to swim with a shark? Set your ohana at ease knowing your reef area is shark free. Gabriel's Ohana is the ONLY company whose photographers keep an eye on you from the sky while you play in the water. With the use of drones, our photographers, stationed on the beach, scan the clear waters around your ohana for danger. Safety from sharks, instant alert in case of possible issues, and the coolest aerial videography! The drones even help us track entangled animals. *Photo packages are not mandatory. A photographer will be there for your safety as a courtesy. Get out on the water in brand new boats that were manufactured in 2021. We had our Gabriel's Ohana brand kayaks made to our specifications to provide the maximum in stability and comfort on the water while still being ergonomic to paddle. Our Gabriel's Ohana life vests are upgraded as well. Each vest comes with a safety whistle and under the leg, straps to prevent them from popping over your head when you hit the water as the others do. We have sizes S-XXXL available. The correct size is important for your safety, don't settle for something that is just one size fits all, we didn't. Our Gabriel's Ohana Kayak paddle is perfect for the beginner or master by being strong but lightweight to avoid fatigue. Our official Gabriel’s Ohana brand high-quality dive masks are made from soft silicone designed for a soft and tight seal that doesn't leave its imprint on you the wrong way. Our low-profile dive quality masks have unobstructed viewing and our snorkels have a soft silicone mouthpiece for the ultimate in comfort. All kayaks have the DLNR stickers that prove we are permitted, licensed, and insured.
