This was truly one of the highlights of our Hawaiian trip. Woody was so patient with our "brand new kayaking" abilities. Was incredibly educational and enjoyable. I refer EVERYONE to there. THANK YOU

This is arguably one of the best and easiest places to learn how to Kayak on Oahu. Pair that with a calm and informative tour and you can't really top it! Thank you for joining us!

Woody made this experience fun and informative, I had my two young kids 6 and 3 with me and even they felt engaged with the stories. Thank you woody

The nice thing about the Lunar Legends tour is how applicable it is for so many different ages!

We had fun paddle boarding in the lagoon. The most relaxing and serene thing the tour guide let us do was to lie on the board looking up at the stars. The tour guide, Woody? Was entertaining and funny. Time went by fast.

Oh yeah, we definitely can't think of a better scenario to learn how to paddle board for the first time. You don't even need to learn to swim because the lagoon is only 3 feet deep! Thanks for coming!
