Full description

Leave dry land behind and sail around Makena Landing, also known locally as “Turtle Town”. Feast your eyes on the incredible biodiversity of green sea turtles and reef fish, as well as the occasional manta and spotted eagle rays, octopi, dolphins, monk seals, humpback whales (December through April) and little white-tip reef sharks.

After receiving a quick tutorial, you'll be helped to launch your boat into the water. Then, you'll have 2 full hours far from the tourist crowds paddling anywhere you want on a steady and easy-to-use kayak. The more you take your time, the more you're likely to see!

It was perfect weather ( go in the am) and everything ran smoothly. The boats were in good condition and the glass bottom was interesting but coral and fish were hard to see. I saw 5 turtles right away which made me happy as that is what I primarily went for. Yes you would see more snorkeling, however I really enjoy kayaking. This is a self guided tour so it is best for experienced kayakers, but not difficult. The guys were helpful and took the kayaks to and from the water. I would do it again!

Unfortunately we showed up a bit late due to power lines falling across the road, but even so the guides got us on to the water quickly and we had an amazing time, seeing coral reefs, fish and a couple of sea turtles. Highly recommended!
