Fantastic morning - a pretty perfect amount of kayaking and snorkeling, with friendly guides that had all sorts of interesting stories to tell about the bay, and Captain Cook, as well as Hawaiian culture. I highly recommend this tour!

We enjoyed a beautiful morning on the bay with Andrew and Travis, our guides. The snorkeling was fantastic! A most memorable time, just the right amount of exercise too. We stopped at Kaya’s coffee on our way and at Black Rock Pizza after to round out a great experience.

This tour was fantastic! We learned so many things about the history of Hawaii and got to kayak and snorkel in the most beautiful clear waters. We also saw dolphins, small white tip reef sharks and hundreds of bright colorful fish! Thank you Iwa and Rabbit for a great day!

Iwa and Rabbit are excellent tour guides and so knowledgeable of Hawaii and its history! They take excellent care of everyone in the group- making sure that everyone is safe, comfortable, and having a great time. The kayaking trip is beautiful and it included a wonderful snorkeling experience. Will definitely be booking again when we visit the island in the future!

Our family of 6 absolutely loved this kayaking and snorkeling experience! The guides were so knowledgeable and made the adventure very smooth and enjoyable. We loved learning Hawaiian history and interesting facts about plants and animals in the area. With the life jackets and ladder provided, snorkeling was easy and we were able to get into the water without damaging the coral reef. The snorkeling was amazing! So many varieties of fish. Our guides helped us identify the different types. Fresh pineapple was a delicious snack too. Would definitely recommend!!

Best tour ever. Hawaiian owned business, Matt was super knowledgeable and friendly local. Better than the Great Barrier Reef

I learned a lot about Hawaiian history and Captain Cook on this trip, as well as having a good paddle and snorkel! The guides were fantastic, very knowledgeable about the various plants and fish in the area, as well as skilled at getting everyone in and out of the kayaks efficiently and safely. Highly recommend these guys!
