We had the best time. We'll worth the money. All employees were so friendly. We learned so much history from our guides, and they were so helpful with our kayaking. Snorkeling was amazing. Our guide found an octopus and made sure we all saw it. Lunch was delicious. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Please make sure you tip your guides they work really hard.

Highlight of our vacation!
Jessie_S, Sep 2023
We LOVED everything about this experience and I'd say it was a highlight of our trip. The guides did a great job at blending storytelling, education and fun. We loved learning more about the history of Kauai and saw all kinds of sea life during the snorkeling from turtles to eels. Their education on sea life helped us identify spotted eagle rays and other sea life when we were at beaches later in our trip. And they gave us great recommendations for other beaches and entertainment during our stay that enhanced our vacation as a whole.

This trip was wonderful and the guide was awesome. You’ll get some Hawaiian history and information about the fish you’ll see snorkeling from a local Hawaiian. It’s family owned and operated (local Hawaiian)
A must do experience…..

Oh my goodness this was one of our favorite things we did while in Kauai and Maui. The kayak trip down the river into the bay was so beautiful. The guides shared so many interesting facts about the area. Then on top of this the snorkeling was so incredible, actually got to see several turtles. We enjoyed a great lunch on the beach before we headed back up the river. Would absolutely do this tour again if back in Kauai. Thanks for a great time.

Thank you from Texas for a great adventure today. My sister and I had a wonderful time Kayaking and snorkeling with the two cousins that were our tour guides. Thank you so much!!!!💜
Breathtaking views
Michelle_W, Jul 2023
We did this trip with our two grown sons and their girlfriends. We loved it. Bit of a drive from Poipu where we were staying but totally worth the trip to the north shore. Our guides Kolo and La’a were so friendly and laid back with tons of knowledge of the history of Kaua’i. The scenery during the kayak was outstanding and the beach we snorkeled off of was beautiful.
Shannon_B, Jul 2023
Our family of 12 had an amazing time on our kayak tour! Many said this was the highlight of our vacation! Our guided were great and you can tell they love what they do!
Well worth the money!

Likely the best tour experience that I’ve ever had! The team was amazing at preparing us, coaching us, and helping us in every way. Great stories about the history of Kauai and the significance of the area. The variety of sea life was tremendous, better than Hanauma Bay and without the crowds. If you want to snorkel in Kauai, go with these guys!
