The weather was perfect at the end of May. The waters were really calm on the early excursion. Dolphins hung around some of the kayakers going out that day. If you have a chance to have Jamal as your guide you will find him very...More

Kealakekua Bay is an incredible snorkeling site with really interesting rock formations, some beautiful coral and lots of pretty tropical fish (with a few eels and an octopus). The kayak portion of the trip was equally amazing, including a great interaction with a pod of...More

They emailed me today to cancel our kayak/snorkel trip. Luckily I checked my email on vacation today. No call. No problem with them cancelling due to a surf alert, safety first. But nothing on a refund. Emailed twice with no response because if you call...More
