Makena Turtle Town Eco Kayak Adventure
Snorkeling with Hawaiian green sea turtles is the highlight of this tour.

And when you’re done with snorkeling, you get to enjoy kayaking adventure along South Maui.
You don’t have to worry about bringing snorkeling or kayaking equipment with you. It all waits for you on the spot. Also, you get a light snack and a bottle of water – and a tour guide just for yourself. Well, kind of, because it’s a tour designed for a group of eight people (or kids, if they are older than five) alone.
But, that’s not all. If you book Makena Turtle Town Eco Kayak Adventure in the right season, you’ll get the chance to see whales, too.

The highlight of the tour? Snorkeling along tropical fish, Maui turtles, and coral reef under the clear turquoise water of West Maui and Lanai. And, if you’re lucky enough and you hit the right season, you’ll see the magical whales, too.
Wait until you read what’s more to this tour. The amazing cuisine prepared for you, on the boat, by the professional chef. In case you have specific dietary needs, or you’re allergic to some food – no problem. Just give a 24-hours notice, and you can be sure you’ll get the menu that suits your needs.
On top of that, you get the full equipment, with some soft drinks and licensed guides along the way. Plus, if you want to catch your amazing experience with the camera, you can opt in for photo packages.
