    Jason was awesome. I see why they call him papa bear. He taught us all about the reef and some history on the island and Hawaiian people. And introduced us to Li Hing powder which is our new favorite thing. Thanks Jason and Gabriel for starting our trip off right and giving us exactly what we needed.

    Had a great time kayaking with John! He was very knowledgeable, very patient and very personable. Really appreciated the small group, the personal attention and the safety consciousness. An amazing experience seeing whales that close and right from the waterline. Hope to get out on the water with him again in the future!

    I loved this excursion… from start to finish!
    Curtis and Tiffany… the owners, and our guides today went above any beyond to make sure it was a successful trip for all 8 of the participants. They are very kind, and so knowledgeable about the area. We got to use new clear kayaks… perfect way to view the coral and sea life below us. We got to snorkel and it was spectacular!! Beautiful fish… and SO many sea turtles!!! It was the best!! I was able to swim along side of the turtles for as long as I wanted! We also saw two rare Hawaiian monk seals, and even whales this morning. It could not have been a better trip- just amazing!!!

    I would recommend this tour to anyone going to Maui! The owner, Chris, was so communicative and easy to work with. Our guide, Javier, was so kind and knowledgeable, and made everyone feel safe and happy. One member of our party was pregnant, and he towed her behind him when she got tired! He was incredible, and we had the most beautiful experience seeing the whales! We must have seen at least 10, some of whom stuck around for a while and played. It was an experience to remember, that’s for sure.

    Wow! What a great morning! Our guide Tyler was a wealth of knowledge and so kind. He obviously spends a lot of time on the water because he knows so much and loves to share information and history with the guests. Seeing whales and sea turtles were the highlights!

    This was an awesome activity. We had a group of 4, and had a wonderful time.

    The guides were excellent at making sure we safely got onto the bikes and onto the water.

    Chris was awesome! He provided al lot of information and was was super chill. We had whales 360. Almost did not snorkel just to take in all the whales. But Chris gave us a little extra time to snorkel a bit. Swam with a monk seal and turtles, along with lots of fish. I will definitely go out with Chris the next time we come back to the island. Worth every dime!

    AMAZING ADVENTURE WITH ANDRES! He is one with the water! Andres took our group out on the waters for a spectacular adventure. His expertise and humor made this outing the highlight of our trip! I loved the act of 'spotting' the whales and forging towards the site.
    At all times Andres's priority was our safety and enjoyment! If you like lots of entertainment and energy Andres is your guide!

    So much fun! Tyler was our guide and he was super knowledgeable, fun, helpful and easy going. We did a long paddle out, did an awesome snorkeling stop and then jumped back on our kayaks because there were whales in the area. We paddled out to them and watched a baby playing for a solid 5 minutes. Then... so incredible... it completely breached the water less than 20 yards from our kayaks. Once in a lifetime experience. Whole tour was well worth the money. Highly recommend. Even without the rare whale sighting I still would have rated it a 5. So fun.

    If you want to eat some bbq chicken and get drunk with 100 other people on a big boat, this adventure is not for you. If you want to be on the water, surrounded by whales, silent except for the incredible whale songs, sign up. Alex was everything we could hope for in a guide: super friendly, local, knowledgeable, helpful, communicative. He even helped us plan the rest of our trip with restaurant tips and other adventures. At the end of the trip, he airdropped tons of photos and videos of us that we’ll cherish forever with no up charge. The brand new kayaks and snorkel gear were top notch and surprisingly comfortable! We couldn’t have made a better choice.

    This was the best experience while in Maui. Chris was our tour guide and was amazing. It took a little while to find the whales, but once we did- it was so worth it! We were running short on time but Chris was great and made sure we got some snorkel time in too where we saw tons of sea turtles. Overall, an amazing experience and 10/10 would definitely do again.

    Great time with Sage, the owner. It was fun to be on the boat and snorkel off of land. Good time for family of 4. Perfect, low key for kids.

    Fantastic experience. We saw sea turtles, a monk seal, and whales. Ryan, our guide kept an eye on us to ensure our safety and was knowledgeable about the area and ocean inhabitants we did and did not encounter. I am a novice paddler though felt safe and energized. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat and definitely recommend it. Thank you Ryan and Maui Ocean Sports!
