Hawaiian Paddle Sports with a private tour is the way to go - best snorkeling tour for our family of 5! So thankful we booked this private tour rather than attempting to find fish with the masses in other tours...and we saw so many different things, with Andrew right there to point them out. Besides being very knowledgeable about the... More

Andrew was wonderful! He educated us in what we would be seeing, how to maneuver the kayak including safety. He was very talkative and provided many interesting facts on Hawaiian history culture and even grammar! We saw some great sea life. The pictures he took for us were amazing! Very glad I took a private tour as I swallowed some... More

This was a highlight of our trip!! I wanted to see sea turtles up close - never dreamed I would really swim with them!! I have been on tours where they advertise swimming with the dolphins but you actually only watch them from a distance. I literally had to tuck my hands near my body to keep from touching Squirt...

Curtis was our guide. So much to give in fun and knowledge.. We were able to see things I'd only hoped for. I'd never kayaked before and he made it SIMPLE!! Can't wait to go out with him again :)

Great paddle boarding tour where we came in contact with heaps of sea turtles as well as a volcano tunnel! Laurie gave us lots of opportunities for photos and was super friendly. These guys take great care of the ocean and the local community so even though it's expensive, give these guys your business, you won't be disappointed ☺️

This was my second trip with Hawaiian Paddle Sports, and they were great! Chris was my guide, and he and I paddled together in Olowalu to see the coral gardens. The conditions of the ocean were wonderful. The water was calm, the sun was shining, it was all that I could ask for!! The coral gardens of Olowalu were simply... More

Although my brother and I have kayaked sporadically over the years, we are getting on a bit now (53 and 62 years of age respectively) and my brother has cognitive difficulties. Taking these factors into account, we prefer to book private tours rather than be in a large group where we might be the slowest and feel stressed over slowing... More

My husband and I, along with our two sons, age 39 & 34, just did a private outrigger canoe snorkel trip with Niko and had a great time. He was very knowledgeable and accommodating the entire trip. He took us to two great snorkeling spots where we swam with green sea turtles, saw an octopus, puffers and all sorts of... More

We were in Hawaii and wanted to do something different. We had never been paddle boarding before and were not comfortable just renting them and going out on our own. Laurie was absolutely amazing! She gave us a dry land session, and taught us a bit about Hawaii before we went out. She was patient and kind and very knowledgeable... More

Good reservation service. Even got a call 20 hours before scheduled start of standup paddling lesson, offering to delay 24 hours because of unprecedented rainfall. Good directions to meeting place. Curtis briefed us well, secured our keys and wallets, and got us into the water and through the shore break. For two of us with bum knees, Curtis was extra... More
