We had an excellent kayaking and snorkeling experience with Zach. He prepared us well for what to expect, getting in and out of the kayak, and telling us about the area and the fish. He was patient, informative and entertaining. The outing was well paced. Zach's passion for Hawaii and being on the water made this a fun and entertaining experience. Highly recommended!

We loved the tour! It was my Son's birthday and our guide, Scotty, made it very memorable. He took time to explain everything, gave us a lot of freedom to explore. He took great pictures and created an awesome CD of photos for us as well.

This was an excellent Kayak and Snorkel trip. Our guide was great and had lots of experience finding turtles in the area. We saw many turtles and our 7 year old daughter had a great time.

Our guide and an excellent instructor on how to Kayak and Snorkel. Being a native Hawaiian he shared his knowledge of the area and the topography of the coral reef we were going to snorkel. I have never kayaked before but found it to be very easy with his instruction. All the equipment was provided for us making the experience very easy. Everything from equipment, to life preservers, to dry packs, even bottled water was all taken care of. We kayaked out to an amazing sight with great views of Maui as well as neighboring islands Molokai and Kahoolawe. The snorkeling location was incredible teaming with a myriad of fish. We saw Angel and Butterfly fish, Tangs, Puffer fish, and Wrasses. We even got the thrill of snorkeling amongst Sea Turtles. We look forward to our next trip to Maui so we again snorkel and kayak, and experience the beauty of Hawaii.

Nice trip-a bit too long /physical for inexperienced kayakers. Because of this, our trip was cut a bit short because another couple was late to check in and could not keep up with the rest of the group. But saw places/reefs/beaches we would not have gone to otherwise. Lunch was nice. Overall a nice experience, would recommend the shorter session for first timers or people who are not physically active. Note: Very hard to get in and out of a kayak on open water unless you have upper body strength. If you are physically active, this is a really nice cross training workout for the day, with cool fish/turtles/scenery to look at.

On another note, VIATOR handled a refund for us in a quick, professional manner. I have used VIATOR for two trips now and consistently recommend this company to others who are traveling.
