Olowalu features an expansive fringe reef that offers snorkelers incredible underwater sightings of turtles at their cleaning stations, as well as great schools of fish! The reef here is among the best on the island and is rarely crowded with the snorkel boats you see elsewhere, making this tour a favorite.
Check-in at 7:15 am
We have a 24 hour cancellation policy that means you have until 24 hours before the start of the trip to cancel or move your tour. If you simply don?t show up and don?t call we will have to charge your credit card at that point.
Please be aware that these bookings are subject to confirmation. If this is a same-day or next-day booking, there is a reasonable chance this will not be confirmed. For bookings that are confirmed, there will be no cancellations or refunds.
We use two person sit on top kayaks that can accommodate 500lbs. Its a good idea to be a person who enjoys the idea of getting outside and exploring, you don?t have to be a mountain climber by any stretch, but we will get some exercise!
All kayak tours have a 7:15 check in and are usually launching by 7:45. We typically stay on the water for around 2.5 hours so landing by about 10:15 for the Ocean Adventure, 10:30 for the Private Tour and about 11:15 for the Whale Watch Snorkel. Sometimes we launch early and find ourselves landing by 10, other times we launch late and don?t land until after 11:30, the point is we don?t have a set itinerary so everyday ends up being a little different.
What about humpback whales?
From December 15th through May 15th Maui?s waters become the North Pacific Marine Whale Sanctuary when we get thousands of humpbacks migrating for mating and birthing purposes. We run kayak whale watches typically from late December through mid April when we have the best chance to encounter them from our shores.
Do we provide food?
Pretty much everything except tax and gratuity. We include gear, refreshments, and a quality guide throughout the experience.
