Definitely worth the money. My friend and I had a great time surfing, our Instructor Matt was very professional and also lots of fun to learn from. We had a wicked morning of surfing. The lunch that was included was filling and easy to eat on the drive to kayaking. Our instructor, Tyler for kayaking and snorkeling was very knowledgeable and we could tell he had a genuine passion for the island and the activities. We swam with plenty of sea turtles and had a baby humpback whale come out to play 20 feet away from our kayak. It was amazing and a day we won't quickly forget. Only thing I wish there was more of was different kinds of fish while snorkelling. The volcanic rock and the sea turtles were neat, but more fish would have been nice to see...(out of the instructors control).
My husband and I were the only ones surfing, it was like we had a private lesson. We literally swam with the turtles and we saw a shark (a harmless shark) the only thing that would keep me from booking this tour again is that it was REALLY exhausting to surf, kayak and snorkel all in one day.
Surfing was great! Amazing instructor... Was patient, calm, and very helpful.
Kayaking instructor was not only able to instruct those in the group who had never been, but a great tour guide. His passion for the water and island was exspresed in his line of work. Never a dual moment
My wife and I really enjoyed this comprehensive experience. Learning to surf was a great experience. Our instructor Kyle did a great job teacing us the basics and was very attentive. We also enjoyed the kayaking portion with Aaron. We had a great time snorkeling and just floating with a group of sea turtles
This was an excellent package. The surfing was a blast and the instructor was terrific!! We were also pampered on our kayak/snorkel trip. Saw lots of turtles. It was a fantastic day.
This was one of the best days of our trip! Both the surf instructor and the kayak/snorkel staff were amazing! Friendly, helpful, and funny! The lunch that is included is huge...we were shocked for all that was involved with the price of this package. Well worth it! Can't say ebough!
it was awesome. I booked this for my son and daughter who are 18 and 14. They had a blast with the surfer instructor who was very attentive and an excellent teacher. My son and daughter enjoyed their lesons very much and by the end, they were able to stand up on their boards and catch some really good waves. I was impressed and extremely pleased with the instructor. They also liked their kayak and snorkeling guide, SCOTT. He was very pleasant and knowledgable about the reef and its surrounding areas. He took some great underwater shots of my children, the fish as well as turtles while they were snorkeling. They absolutely love their Maui snorkeling experience. We would do this again in a heart beat and next time, my wife and I are going on this excursion.
Our instructors/guides were fabulous! The surfing lessons were first thing in the morning lessons were great. The snorkel and kayak trip was by far the best! The guide/instructor was awesome; took us to great snorkeling place and was very attentive to 11 yr old grandson that was very scared. We will definitely do this again.
This is a very fun day. The surf instructor was very nice and a good teacher. The 5 of us in the class were all catching waves by the end. Then we went to the snorkel/kayak site. A beautiful bay and ate our very large packed lunch. The snorkeling was great, beautiful reef with sea turtles.
We had a great time learning to surf! Our instructor was amazing! Our kayak instructor was also great and we had a good time however I wish we could have seen more while snorkeling! The turtle was fabulous just wish there would have been more! Overall I trip was fantastic and we couldn't have asked for a better day!
actual duration of whole event was only 3:30 hrs as against advertised 6:30 hours !!!!!
The surfing was absolutely amazing. However, we did not paddle very far and snorkeled in areas with very few fish.
Unfortunately, new students are required to run before they learn how to walk.
The instructors are good surfers, but have no knowledge about teaching.
I have the surfing basics, and will now practice on my own, without someone yelling at me to stand up, when I'm happy to be kneeling and not falling off.
