Visited Hawaii's islands previously and have snorkeled around Molikini, canoed in Lahaina, boated in Maui. We've also kayaked / paddle boarded before at Hilton Head Island, SC. This recent trip was with Matt Hudson as guide on a mid/late morning Makena kayak/snorkeling excursion. We saw more turtle, fish, coral, and dolphin collectively and close-up, and seemingly kayaked farther distance and... More

Matt our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and made our Snorkeling trip outstanding. We were looking for a trip that was with a smaller group and that was the case with this trip. I would highly recommend Maui Kayaks.

John was an awesome guide! Great weather, great water, sharks, mantas, octopi, and turtles. So much fun! We are experienced kayakers and snorkelers, but loved John's wit and knowledge. He has a gift for finding critters on the reef and sharing stories and experiences. In addition, our guide was a professional photographer and send us home with hundreds of photos... More

John was an amazing, confident, professional, who made us feel comfortable and safe. I had never been snorkeling before, and wasn't even sure if I was confident enough to leave the kayak, but John was such a relaxed and great guide, I decided I would be fine. It was such a fun first experience. The weather and ocean was perfect,... More

Definitely a must-do. Our family of three were the only ones in our group so that made it even better. Our tour guide, Derrick, was great - he had us cracking up the entire time and shared a lot of interesting information about the islands. We saw some sea turtles and went out next to a cruise ship - not... More

Absolutely THE highlight of our vacation. John was a stellar guide, very knowledgable with entertaining stories. He taught us how to dive with our snorkel gear on - big bonus! We opted to have John take photos for us - definitely worth it - highly recommend that option.

We really lucked out- clear water, low surf, ideal snorkeling conditions and a great guide. My husband and I have both kayaked and snorkeled many times before but enjoyed John's clear instructions, knowledge of the area and sea life, and company. I can't add a lot to what others have said but didn't want to miss a chance to praise... More
