Q: Any other advice for the kayaking tour?
A: On any activity, use the restroom prior to your arrival. Few areas offer restrooms and even those that do, are not anywhere near as nice as your resort / hotel / condo. Trust us!
Q: Why do you start your kayak tours so early?
A: Maui is blessed with beauty on land and the ocean. One of the blessings we have is our trade winds keeping our island cool and comfortable during the afternoon hours when the sun is at its hottest. The earlier on the water, the better the experience.
Q: Someone in our party does not swim, can they still join?
A: We typically provide advice as such if they are comfortable on the water should not be a problem. Do them a favor though, book a shorter tour.

A: Each guests is required to wear a PFD. We may ask when you book for any small kids so to ensure we have the kids vests for your group.
Q: What if it rains?
A: While Maui is blessed with an abundance of sunshine, it does rain now and again. If it’s a downpour we will stay on shore. If it’s a passing shower, we go! On a side note, it’s really nice on the water and ask yourself have you ever seen a
raindrop hit the water while looking up in the water?
