What You Can Expect
Hear the history of Makena Bay and get views of Haleakala volcano, with the main highlight being snorkeling with sea turtles as they casually float above the reef. Makena is one of the best spots for a family to go kayaking in Maui, where the warm, clear, protected waters are just waiting to be explored.
This is definitely a five-star experience. Ours was a small group, only six people plus Rusty, our guide. The trip was magical at every moment, from the departure at sunrise to the paddle to the reef and eventually the reef itself. Rusty knew where the green sea turtles should be and he didn't disappoint us. I have snorkeled with sea turtles in the Galapagos, but this experience was even better.
The guide Garrett Jaros made all the difference. He made it special and safe.
Great experience! We had a such a knowledgable and wonderful guide!
This was fantastic! I would do it again in a heartbeat! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun!
This trip was one of the best things we did during three weeks on three different islands in Hawaii!
Our guide was so awesome, down to earth, very personable, and seemed to let us just kind of go with the flow. We got to hear whales singing, swim with turtles, and touch some sea urchins. Loved it.
Our guide Garette was awesome! Great experience!
We loved this "tour." The visibility wasn't great, but our guide made the most of the conditions, and we saw many fascinating fish, several turtles - and a manta ray! The guide was informative and clearly had a strong interest in the environment. He informed us without being tedious, and his knowledge certainly enhanced our experience. We were pleased we did it this way rather than with a larger group off a boat.
Really great Tour. Had Steve as our guide he was funny and knowledgable of the area and the marine life, great guy. Would definitely recommend doing. The snorkelling was great and we were able to see heaps of turtles up close
Excellent, saw and swam with 6 green turtles. Fantastic guide.
Wife and I went on this kayak tour and it was great! We had a small group and our guide was very knowledgeable about the islands and its history. My wife went snorkeling while I stayed behind in the kayak and she enjoyed it very much. It was her first time snorkeling despite her fears of the ocean
