    1. Maui: Whale Watch Kayaking and Snorkel Tour in Kihei

    Kayak through Maui's blue ocean to embark on a whale watching adventure. This tour provides a perspective like no other. Gliding along the water, you will be eye-level with the ocean and can see the marine wildlife up-close and personal. After checking in, your expert guide will provide hands on instruction on how to manage your kayak, from landing, launching, paddling and how to get in and out for the snorkeling component. This tour features "sit on top" kayaks which makes for easy-on/easy-off access. Your guide will launch each kayak, setting you out into the great blue sea. As a group on the water, your guide will brief you about whats planned and where you will visit. To begin your adventure, you will paddle out to search for whales (whales are seasonal here and populations vary yearly). Along the way, your local guide will share island stories, information, folklore, and more. When...

    Our guide, John, was charismatic and knowledgeable. The kayaking was a blast and we got to kayak alongside dolphins! The snorkeling was also excellent, we saw a wide variety of fish and our guide found a huge sea turtle for us to see! Was overall an excellent tour and was the perfect amount of time. Would definitely recommend it and do it again ourselves next time we’re in Maui. Just FYI the whales are only around Jan-March.

I know we were pretty much out of whale season, but I wish the tour had been labeled differently so I didn't end up disappointed. We saw a turtle from far away and a few fish, but that was it. Of course, this was no fault of our guide, Jake, who was wonderful! He was really helpful and explained everything about kayaking properly, getting off, and getting on to the point I felt really confident and safe. He was also really knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about the area. If anything was worth the price, it was his guiding!

Cory was a great guide. Patient with the kids and full of helpful advice. We really enjoyed our trip. We saw a baby sea turtles and learned the correct method to paddle a kayak. I am sure you can get a similar tour for less money, but Cory was friendly , knowledgeable and we enjoyed ourselves, so it was money well spent.

Keelan was really nice, helpful and fun. We had a lot of fun in the ocean. Def will recommend him if my friends or family come here to visit.

Jake was the best! We had a great time on the water and look forward to trying his food recommendations. Mahalo!
