What an amazing first experience for snorkeling. The drive to Makena Landing from Lahaina was about 40 minutes ~ leave early to see the sunrise on the drive over & arrive by 7AM. John was very personable and made us feel comfortable before we began our adventure. We went over proper body mechanics for kayaking & snorkeling do’s & dont’s. As someone who struggles with anxiety I cannot recommend this activity enough! I didn’t think I would love it as much as I did ~ or feel as calm as I did while being out on the ocean. I felt safe & free! The waves were so calm & the water was insanely clear. We saw various marine life (a turtle as soon as we left shore and a RARE monk seal!!!) It’s clear John is passionate about ocean life & respecting Hawaiian culture. He taught us what “aloha” actually means! :) I am very appreciative of John’s humor, knowledge and fun charisma. You will not be disappointed on this beautiful excursion with him. He will guide & show you the ocean’s beauty.
Jake was so much fun! We absolutely LOVED this excursion. Jake was super nice, let us know everything we needed and made it super easy to go out on the kayaks. We saw TONS of turtles, fish and heard some awesome fish stories :). We HIGHLY recommend this trip and will definitely do this again when we come back to Maui. Be sure to book the morning time slot as the wind does pick up in the afternoon and makes it harder to swim/paddle. We did the 7:15-10:15 time and it was perfect! Thanks Jake from State Farm!
Absolutely amazing! We had the whole cove to ourselves and saw so many turtles. Our guide was awesome and took the time to teach us about all of the different fish and turtles we saw. She even took very nice photos of us and the sea life we saw, such a great added bonus. Highly, highly recommend.
John made our tour so enjoyable with his 20 years plus experience to share with us. He had great people skills that you will not regret you have your tour with John. We Definitely be back with kids in the near future.
Amazing experience! Our guide, Madison was wonderful and made sure we got to see what we wanted...to swim with sea turtles. She was personable, knowledgeable, and fun!
