The actual surfing and kayak/snorkeling experiences were outstanding. I did not realize that we had to drive from the surfing to the kayak/snorkeling takeoff points on our own. I was alone and was handed a paper with directions after surfing on how to get to the kayak takeoff. There was a vague map and tiny print directions, which I could not read while driving, so got very lost. I wish we could have gone as a group to the second site. I eventually found it and they were waiting for me, so it turned out OK.
Loved this tour! The snorkeling was amazing, saw more with this tour than other places we went to on our own. Surfing was great too, way easier than I expected.
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.
It was great. I went with my daughter. Our surf instructor was really good. I never surfed before, can't ride a skateboard or snowboard but he had me up on the waves by my third try. I'm hooked for life now. Kayaking and snorkeling was a lot of fun as well. We saw turtles and some pretty fish. Afterwards we were exhausted but it was a great time.
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.
