Great day for my daughter and I on the water. We got a nice workout at a really comfortable pace so we could enjoy being on the ocean and taking lots of pictures. The eco tour on the island was really fun, the tide pools, birds and "queen's bath." We had a really fun and energetic guide and a small group, which made it really fun.

Goose was amazing! Incredibly view throughout the trip and Goose was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend this trip for anyone who is interested in kayaking. We had a calm day so it was very doable, but definitely confirm with them regarding the difficulty depending on the time of the year.

Jon was phenomenal and made a great experience even more fun, educational, and entertaining. My 17-yo daughter loved it. The highlight of a busy week on Oahu.

Rikki was a great guide. The experience was well worth it. Plus, the options for lunch were great as well. Would highly recommend.
