Although we seem to have done this on a morning when there weren't many turtles around, I'm assuming that was the exception and others will generally have better luck than we did (we just saw one beautiful big turtle coming up for air). Derek did...More

These kayaks were excellent! Looking through the clear bottom was extremely beautiful! The instructor gave us clear instructions and suggestions. A sea turtle swam under my kayak! Would so totally do it again!

Hello, will be staying at Kihei Surfside in May and wondered if you ever use the little boat launch right there across from Maui Kamaole which is where our friends will be staying as well. Would want to rent 2-4 kayaks. Also, are we able to paddle on our own or are these guided tours? We are experienced kayakers and just want to cruise along the coast there.
