We went on the snorkeling trip and Paul was our guide, he made everyone feel so comfortable and made the whole experience one to r...emember! Thanks Paul. more
Paul & Kai were our guides on Saturday, 6/14/08. As first time snorkelers, our experience could not have been more enjoyable ...or fun. They were knowledgeable, friendly and inspired complete confidence when we were in the water. Thank you so much for helping to make our honeymoon a perfect experience! We also we like to say if we ever come back we will definitely request them as our guides again. MAHALO! more

Thank you for an awesome experience! We went during March with our 9 yr old son and the guides helped keep track of him in the wat...er and kept making sure he was doing okay.The water was warm, they had wetsuits and great equipment for everyone. We saw an amazing number of fish at the first snorkel spot. We even saw a few eels. After about 45 minutes you rest and have beverages before you go off to the second spot. The second location was amazing. Sea turtles were all around you, everyone got great pictures. The guides even made sure that if they saw something special they would point it out to everyone around them. After snorkeling, you go back and turn in equipment and have snacks and more beverages. Definitely would recommend this to anyone. THANK YOU!! When we come back we will be doing this adventure again. more
Everyone in our group had a fantastic time - especially the 10 year old who got to swim with a sea turtle. Our guide worked well ...with our range of experience. He was very qualified and the trip was both fun & informative. We would definitely go snorkeling with you again and recommend you to our friends. more
Great adventure for me since I have never been snorkeling and I cannot even swim. That is why I chose this activity, so I would ha...ve someone to help get me through it. The instructors (both ladies) were great , calming, reassuring, and understanding and really "babysat" and "nurtured" me into my first snorkeling adventure. I felt very secure and safe. I was amazed that I saw a bright yellow fish the first time I got brave enough to put my face in the water. After that, I just kept my face in the water most of the time to see what else was there. There did not seem to be a lot of fish and the water did not seem very clear where we were, but IT still worked for me as a "first-timer." I still cannot believe that I really did it. The only beach we snorkeled was Tunnels Beach (I think was the name of it.) The other instructor even took all my pictures for me with my underwater camera when I asked her to do that for me. I am so glad she did, so now, I will have something to show that I reall more
We've been snorkeling before, but none were as personalized as the one we had on this trip. Our guides, Paul and Jack, were ...very light-hearted, funny, but extremely careful when it came to the safety of our snorkelers. You could tell they truly enjoyed being our guides, and they lived and breathed what Kauai offered. The trip was very special and personal to my wife and me, because our guides brought us to places, and pointed out creatures we would never have seen or held by ourselves. And although their jobs were to entertain and teach us about snorkeling, they were equally committed to the well-being of the sea life (e.g., the sea turtles), giving clear directions and explanations for how we were to be responsible for our actions around them. Snacks and tips on other great sites to see in Kauai followed the swim. Thanks for the fun, Paul and Jack! more

This was a great opportunity for us to explore something we normally would not have done. This was quite the experience and what w...e saw we will never forget. The guide was very helpful and this was made very enjoyable for all of us! more
This tour was great! Our snorkel guide Paul was very knowledgable about the island and all the creatures in the ocean. He was ab...le to look around underwater and find things to show us that he thought we would enjoy. Would absolutely recommend as a "must go to" activity. more
This was a wonderful experience! Our instructor picked us up in a very clean van, there were 5 of us total. The drive to the oce...an was beautiful and only about 10 minutes away. When we got there we put on our gear, eveything that you 'll need is there, fins, masks, wetsuit, etc. in the sizes you ask for. They even had prescription masks for people with glasses (even high strengths, a 5 for me). I was a little nervous because i'm not a very good swimmer, but the wet suit helps you float and there is a surf board like thing with rope handles that you can hang on to. Put I had a great time holding on to that and just looking down the whole time. We saw lots of tropical fish, coral reef, and sea turtles (huge ones!) just floating next to us. The ocean water is warm too, so don't worry about being cold, the pool at my resort was colder. Okay and last but not least there were no sharks. I was very worried about that, even though I research it before signing up, but its very very ra more
Our first time snorkeling and we had a great time!

My family had a great time snorkeling. This was the first time for all of us and being a person who does not swim, afraid of deep... water I had a blast. The instructor was very qualified and helped me overcome my fears and helped me to have a great time. Our family was the only group on this tour which was great because of the individualized help. We saw alot of different fish, coral and sealife and even came up close to many green sea turtles, they were so amazing. I would recommend this tour to everyone, even those who do not swim. more
Great fun. The staff really delivered on promises to see marine life, especially turtles.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience in Kauai when we did the snorkeling activity. Our guide and instructor, Paul, was great t...o be with, had a very unique personality, and was just a lot of fun. He is very knowledgable on all aspects of local lore and took us to great locations where we were able to see many different species of tropical fish and even green sea turtles. My wife is not a good swimmer and our other guide Kailee helped her to enjoy the experience fully. We had a great time and would do it again next time. more
We were so pleased with our snorkeling expedition through Hawaiian Activities. Our tour guide Paul was excellent and really made u...s feel welcome and showed us so many great fish and turtles during our three hour trip. Paul was very professional yet very humorous and made the trip so worthwhile. Would recommend a snorkeling trip with Paul to anyone!!!! more
Three of us were swimmers and took to snorkeling easily. I was terrified to try, but I wanted so much to share this with my famil...y. Kai was amazing! She was so patient and helped me overcome my fears. The snorkeling was fantastic and I learned so much about what I saw in the water. Kailee was awesome and we loved her sense of humor. Our whole family was absolutely thrilled with the experience from beginning to end. THANK YOU SO MUCH for making our first day in Kauai so wonderful. more
My husband and I had a great day snorkelling, the guide was excellent and so kind, we even saw turtles...
It was the first time for 3 out of the 5 in our group. Paul picked us up from our resort and entertained us with his jokes an...d his sound effects. I highly recommend it. more
I took my teenage cousin on a snorkeling adventure and we had a good time. Nick, the driver, talk story about the indigenous and ...endemic plant life of hawai'i on the way to the snorkeling spot on Poipu. We got to see and touch a small octopus. That was a "no ka oi"...the best! more
Great guide, amazing fishes and TURTLES. A good experience for the family and friends.
I took my 2 daughters Skyla 11 and Kaylee 9. It was an amazing experience! Kailee is an excellent instructor and guide. The entir...e trip was enjoyable and educational. My little one was able to hang out on the surf board as she grew tired of swimming and enjoy the entire experience. Unfortunatley the water was a little to unpredictable to venture out to the sea turtles, but Kailee drove us to a spot where we were able to view them from the van in large numbers. I would definetly reccommend this to anybody visting Kauai! more
The main reason we went was because Barbara wanted to go snorkeling. Kailee is an amazing instructor! Barbara had the best time of... our time on Kuaui. After the snorkeling and refreshments, Kailee showed us where the sea turtles were and we even saw a few. She pointed out several landmarks and answered every question we asked about plants, animals and life on the Islands. We really had a great time! more
Carl & Barbar O
Amazing snorkelling tour, Paul and Miguel were awesome guides! They made sure everyone was comfortable before getting into the wat...er and helped those of us who had never done it before. Paul was very entertaining and funny, and Miguel was cool at towing us around on the board. This is definitely something you should do while on Kauai, you won't regret it! more
The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. The areas chosen to snorkel in were full of fish and interesting coral and turtles.... The snacks and drinks afterwards were very much appreciated.I would recommend this as a good activity for the whole family to do! more
We are first time snorkelers and we loved it. Our guide Kelsey made easier for us, and all the gear, and wet suite has helped a lo...t. Highly recommended. more
