Every aspect of our Kayak and snorkeling adventure on Christmas morning with John was GREAT! From his greeting and prepping to the final docking of kayaks after our excursion, he made our day! John is a people person, knowledgeable both in his craft and of hawaii - not to mention being able to relate to and manage a group as diverse as ours was. Fun conversation, great execution and heartfelt effort to insure a wonderful time for my family and others in our group. Please thank him again for us - Mahalo Mahalo Maholo - the Dorn Family

This was an amazing excursion! We saw so many turtles starting from the first minute we were in our kayaks. We snorkeled for at least an hour and saw probably about 20 turtles up close and personal! Our guide, John Shapell, was awesome - very friendly and encouraging. He also took some amazing pictures of our group that we purchased for a very reasonable fee of only $85 for our group of 9. He sent us a link a few days later to over 500 pictures! We had go pros with us and took our own pictures but his were ten times better! Definitely worth the money. I'm not sure if all guides do this or not but I would definitely ask for John if you want some great pictures of your trip. I will say that if you have never kayaked before or have younger children, the kayaking might be a little difficult. One mom and daughter in our group had to be towed by the guide. It is ocean kayaking so can be a little more difficult than lake or river kayaking.
