Good times!
Curtis_O, Mar 2023
Great snorkeling and turtles too! Curtis and Tiffany were awesome, great experience. The clear kayaks were an interesting twist.
Best tour this vacation
Brian_K, Feb 2023
Our guide was great! Made the experience even more memorable. Our favorite tour the whole time here. Saw whales, monk seals, turtles and a ton of coral and fish. It was a calm day on the ocean with beautiful weather! Couldn’t have asked for more.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you so much Brian, we are so glad you had such a fun tour and you got to see the monk seals. What a magical experience. We hope to see you again next time you visit Maui, Mahalo - Tiffany and Curtis
A different way to view the coral reef and fish, maybe even a turtle
Randy_H, Feb 2023
Glass bottomed boats are great for viewing in addition to the snorkeling. However they need a better way to identify their location for meeting. No signs or people telling you where they are in the parking area. They also did not check the equipment before handing it out . We ended up with a children's set that had to be replaced after we were on the water. Inspire of this a very different and good experience.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Aloha Randy, thank you for taking the time to share a review of your experience. Very sorry to hear that you were handed a child set of gear but I am glad the situation was rectified before you snorkelled. Apologies about the parking. The state of Maui will not allow us kayak and snorkel companies to put a sign up. Our tour guides wait at the entrance of the car park at 6:45am to direct people to parking. I apologize the guide was not waiting when you arrived as he must have been busy with other guests. We are now parking at a different location, opposite a mile marker on the highway, so I send photos of that to our guests in a text message prior to their tour. Glad you still had a good experience overall. Mahalo, Tiffany
Totally Awesome
Kimberly_A, Jan 2023

Amazing family outing!
Summer_S, Nov 2022
This tour was amazing!! The clear kayaks took it to a whole new level of ocean adventure! The snorkeling spot was amazing! Tons of sea life and lots of turtles that were not afraid to get up close and personal!! Our guide Javier was the best! He made us all feel very comfortable and guided us throughout the trip with a gentle sense of calm and sense of humor. He also got some incredible under water photos of us to take home some unforgettable memories!

Honeymoon Highlight1
Jessica_R, Nov 2022
This tour was one of the highlights of our honeymoon in Maui! We loved the small group atmosphere (10 people) and our guides Curtis and Tiffany were incredibly kind, informative, and helpful. We loved seeing the ocean under our kayak and even saw a sea turtle swim beneath us! Everyone participated in the snorkeling portion of the trip, despite my own hesitation of being in the water. However Tiffany and Curtis made sure I was comfortable before entering the water and when getting back into my kayak. One moment of note was when my husband's Apple Watch band broke and fell into the water during the snorkeling portion of the tour. Tiffany and Curtis located it in the water and recovered the watch for him! We couldn't ask for anything better for our tour!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you Jessica, so happy you guys joined us for your honey moon. I remember the apple watch dive haha. We hope to see you both again sometime. Tiffany and Curtis
Absolutely Amazing Experience

Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you Jorden! Happy you had such a fun time and we hope to see you on Maui again. Curtis and Tiffany
Highly recommend 🐠
Hilary_D, Nov 2022
My husband and I were traveling to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We snorkeled on our honeymoon in Barbados and wanted to snorkel again. Our adventure in HI was a great experience.! Curtis and Javier were terrific, and we would highly recommend booking with them. They are a class act—so kind and helpful to everyone in our group. If you have never kayaked or have younger kids (not sure on age limits), they will make sure you have a safe and enjoyable time. They also kept excellent communication with us the day before to let us know where to park. Javier took lots of high-quality snorkeling pictures and offered them all digitally for a very reasonable price (BTW, saw amazing turtles, fish and vegetation!). Perfect experience all around. Can’t recommend these guys enough for all ages and skill levels. Y’all will not regret it.
Response from Host, Mar 2023

We had a great experience with Curtis and Gee! From the kayaking to snorkeling to the scenery, it was beautiful and we had a great experience. The guides are super knowledgeable and very helpful. The other family on the tour had small children and the guides were very patient, friendly, and worked well with young kids. We would definitely recommend this tour!
