If you haven’t kayaked in Maui you are missing out! This is the second trip we’ve taken (first time with our kids) and it was great. We saw over a dozen turtles and an octopus! Matt was really fun, I would highly recommend him.

I'm a guide for this trip and it can be a paddle for some but if your athletic and ready for adventure it's an easy paddle.
