LOVED our experience with John! My son and I went here as one of our adventures in Maui for his 13th birthday. The only thing that would’ve it made it more perfect was for more sun (in my opinion) but my son had a blast no matter what. Our guide/instructor was John who was not only incredibly thorough on safety but also has a crazy amount of knowledge on the Hawaiian islands, its history, its language and, of course, marine life! He jokes a lot with you and made my awkward/moody, just-turned-13 year old son feel confident and special. We learned a lot and would love to have this experience again with John but bring more family with us!

Loved our Kayak and snorkel with John at: Maui: Premium Turtle Town Kayak and Snorkel Tour @ Makena Landing Maui. AMAZING guide who obviously loves what he does and is passionate about it. We lucked out getting this dude great history about Hawaii and marine life. We saw many turtles, an eel, octopus, jellyfish and many cool fish. Will def be rebooking with this group when we are back whether for summer or winter with the humpback whales. Mahalo!

The snorkeling was fun. Great views. She was helpful with kayaks. I would recommend the longer tour. Took us about an hour to get everyone in the water and finished by 10:40. Started at 7. Only went to one spot but views were amazing

Excellent experience with a (nico) fantastic guide. Very good and attentive treatment, beautiful landscapes, many turtles and good sun. We recommend starting early to avoid the midday sun.

Very entertaining and exciting. Also ideal for inexperienced kayakers and snorkelers.
