We got a warm and courteous greeting from our guide Milo. Ewa keeps the check-in simple and the local history enhanced. They’re a great combo! My three teens who’d never kayaked had a wonderful time because of the direction and attention to safety that was provided. We learned so much about the land, the people, and the ocean! Highly recommend!

This was my first snorkeling trip ever. I was blown away with the local history bonus, and education on fish, fruits, and trees in the area. Matt & Ewa we’re superb. This trip exceeded my expectations on so many levels. The group was fantastic too.

5 stars for this experience. Our guide Matt was AMAZING. I chose this company because the website stated we would receive historical/cultural information about the island and Matt did not disappoint. He was super knowledgable and dove into the history of Hawaii and Captain Cook throughout the journey. The kayaking was a blast and the snorkeling was gorgeous. Matt was courteous and super helpful keeping us safe and comfortable throughout the trip. I definitely recommend this company for a morning out on the water (and ask for Matt if you can)!

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to the big island. Easy enough for a novice kayaker to make, with a great snorkel waiting at the other end! Our guide was diligent about our safety and highly knowledgeable about the history and ancient traditions of the area.

We were blown away by this experience. The snorkeling was amazing. It felt like swimming in an aquarium. The guides were also very friendly and knowledgeable, both giving a great overview of the history of Captain Cook coming to Hawaii and providing lots of interesting insights into local culture. I also appreciated how protective they were of the reef and local dolphin population. Be prepared to kayak for 2 miles round trip, but this experience is not to be missed!

This was a highlight of our trip! Fantastic snorkeling but so much more due to the excellent guides Rabbit and Iwa. We learned so much about the history of Captain Cook from them and they took great care to make sure everyone in our group was comfortable and safe. They clearly care deeply about this special place and about respecting and taking care of it.

This trip goes beyond kayaking and snorkeling. The level of knowledge of both the flora, fauna and history of the area was like taking a master class. Ewa and Rabbit are knowledgeable and professional. I was a first time kayaker and the trip was a dream. The snorkeling was beyond beautiful. Highly recommended as a must do on the Big Island!

We had a great time. Our guide, Rabbit took great care of us and was just full of local historical and cultural knowledge that brought great context to our visit. Of course the snorkelling is world class.
