Guided tour was a nice introduction to Hawaiian culture and we all enjoyed the canoe ride and the “honu” experience.

Our tour guide was hilarious! Made the excursion really fun! We learned a lot about Hawaiian culture. He even gave us a free video of our trip!

My wife and I had some time in the morning to kill and decided to do this on a whim. Definitely glad we decided to do it. Had a great time learning more about the culture in the South Pacific and got some nice time out on the water. We even spotted a few sea turtles that swam right next to the boat. Highly recommend.

We did the Outrigger Canoe tour through the Wailea Marriott. Kevin and his crew were so friendly and welcoming. Kevin told us a lot about Hawaiian culture and about the turtles.My kids are 9 and 12 and enjoyed the tour immensely. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

Kevin and his crew made this a top notch experience. We learned about Hawaiian culture and history from a true Hawaiian. We saw quite a few turtles on our hour tour. Cannot recommend enough.

We had such an amazing time on the ocean. We were able to see 9 turtles and several up close. Our tour guide just graduated from high school and was very professorial and knowledgeable about sea life. Thanks for a great time!

Great historical perspective on Hawaiian culture. Kevin was amazing. We need more like him. The best. The cost was a tad high and the length a tad short. Make the trip 90mins as a minimum for the cost. Otherwise it was exceptional!!

The Outrigger Canoe ride was fantastic! Kevin was a great guide! Would love to do it again and maybe a longer session!

The tour guides were great. :) They had wonderful energy and taught us about the Hawaiian culture. Our group had the 10 AM tour and we were so lucky we had a turtle approach our canoe. Paddling was also pretty easy going. The reason I did not put 5 stars is because I feel their Cool Destinations description should disclose the width of the seats of the canoe. For reference I am a size 8 and I had little room to move. I brought my friend with me and she did not fit comfortably in the canoe. She had to sit sideways to fit.

The trip was ok. Being on the water is always nice. We did see sea turtles. The guide was delightful as well as the rest of the crew who helped us launch the outrigger. It was hard to hear the guide since we were at the front of the outrigger. Feel the price didn’t match the value. Was told that we had to present the confirmation of payment which ended up not being required. Wouldn’t have risked taking my cellphone (had a waterproof container) to show my tickets had I known it was not necessary.
