Fantastic Molokini kayak challenge with our friendly, talented, and knowledgeable guide, John. I do recommend MKA to anyone, and if you are up for the ~4 hour trip, the Molokini Challenge. It is the best way to get in touch with the ocean.

Matt was very informative and entertaining as he led our group on this wonderful excursion. We snorkeled and saw large sea turtles, and Matt was even able to capture these moments with his camera. Highly recommended.
