    Steve is the best. He us fun, energetic, knowledgeable, helpful, passionate about what he is doing. He made all the activities memories of a lifetime. I was very scared and a non swimmer but he made me comfortable and held my hand so I can start and enjoyed the snorkeling. Thank you Steve. This is the best highlights of our trip to Maui.

    Our guide Brandon was awesome, knowledgeable, personable, and gave great direction. You could tell he was having a great time and was excited to share his love of the ocean with us. Brandon also had great stories about the island and was very entertaining. The kayaking was fun and the snorkeling was even better. Swam with a sea turtle and saw a wide variety of fish. It was fantastic and I highly recommend this tour.

    This was my favorite experience in Maui. We did the early morning tour with Jake. He was a great tour guide and we learned a lot about Maui from him. My SO does not know how to swim and she felt at ease with Jake showing us how to use the snorkel gear. The water was super clear and we saw four turtles. I would pick this over the luau that we attended.
