Worth every penny and more

My husband and I wanted an easy, short, and safe Hawaiian date experience that wouldn’t kill the budget. This was well worth the money and didn’t break bank! We had the option of snorkeling gear, got a free dry bag, and dinner for two (which was excellent! Chicken katshu at the Japanese grill). It did take a lot of strength to push the kayak over the sandy part of the beach but that was about it. We didn’t have any trouble getting out into the water. I am actually afraid of the water so it was a good adventurous experience for me. We went out to the first island(bird sanctuary) where we saw an egg nest and two fuzzy baby chicks! We snorkeled for a bit and then came back. It was perfect, romantic, and adventurous for us both. It was easily our most favorite part of our Hawaii trip. Thank you!

My husband and I were planning to buy our own kayaks and this tour really opened our eyes on the kayak experience. The tour was all inclusive and included lunch and snorkel gear if you wanted to, a boogie board plus dry bag to stow your stuff while kayaking. The Kailua beach center has lockers that they will provide for your valuables and the code will be on your wristband. Be prepared to drag your kayak for a 2-5 min walk to the beach. They're not heavy bec it will be on a trolley. We had an early appointment so we were kayaking by 9am really nice, the waters were calm that day and made kayaking a really fun activity. We went to flat island and walked around just admiring the view. You can bring food but make sure to keep your trash with you and dispose properly. By noontime the water started getting rough and there were a couple of kayakers that capsized their kayaks and we were able to help them out . The rescuers were there right away so that was really good. All in all a great experience.

The staff was very helpful and friendly. They gave us locations to kayak to, which we went to one, but ultimately spent a lot of time snorkeling. There was also a food voucher for the restaurant next door, and it was very tasty.

The customer service was excellent and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this company!!! They explained everything we needed to know, helped us on the way back from the beach, even though they were going to help someone else. Very friendly and kind.

Excellent day!

We were so glad we did self guided and could relax at each island and go at our own pace-a lot is included for the price which is great-dry bag, cooler, bike rental, beach chairs, all inclusive. We were super fortunate that the monk seal decided to nap on the beach of the island and we got to see him up close-awesome! Lots of sea turtles we also saw while kayaking and we snorkeled and saw beautiful fish and a sea turtle eating off the reef. A super fun day! Highly recommended!

Great day - recommend!

Great activity! You get all you need with the self guided tour - kayak, cooler, dry pack, snorkeling equipment and lunch vouchers. We didn’t mind bringing the kayaks down but bringing them back was a hassle. They kept falling off the cart and no one was available to help. Also recommend adding a laminated map to guide how to enter the islands once you are on the water. Recommend as a great activity and wonderful memory but the business owner could do more to make is easier when you return.
