Amazing Kayak and Snorkel.
Jul 2021 • Couples
Honestly the best kayak experience ever. We had Tyler as our guide and he showed us multiple snorkel sites and made everyone genuinely feel welcome and supported. It helped that we got to see multiple turtles and got a good workout in.

Because of the waters on the west shore, we were rescheduled to a different location and even that was handled very easily and gracefully. So thank you!

Amazing! I did not know what to expect since this was my first time snorkeling and I loved it. Jeremiah was a great guide and very patiently guided me through how ro breathe while snorkeling, if he did not take the time to help, I would've missed out on the awesome experience.
Definitely check this out!

Kayak & Snorkel
Apr 2021
We had a great time kayaking and snorkeling with Curtis. Even though it was a windy morning on the water, he helped us navigate to some great snorkeling spots and sea some sea turtles! He was patient with our group which included novice kayakers (including my 9 year old and 11 year old). We learned a lot about the different islands, sea life, and Hawaiian culture. All in all, a great experience and I would highly reccomnend Curtils and the kayak/snorkeling tour.

Amazing Kayak tour!
Our family of four booked a kayak and snorkel tour with Kellii’s. They were great about helping us rebook at a time that worked for us when our first booking had to be canceled because of weather.
We left out of Olowalu for the early morning tour. Our guide was Curtis and he was so awesome! He explained how to kayak so my daughters (7 and 10) knew what to do.
We first kayaked out to see some whales. Wow! We saw several whales and even saw one breach! Definitely an unforgettable experience. Then we kayaked back towards shore and had some time snorkeling. We saw amazing coral reefs, tons of fish, and turtles! Curtis was great about making sure we stayed safe and pointing stuff out to us. He was also super knowledgeable about the island and the animals and shared lots of cool facts with us. We had a great time! We would definitely do it again in a heartbeat! Mahalo Kellii Kayaks and Curtis for a great experience!

Awesome time, and with whales!!
Jeremiah showed us a great time kayaking. He was knowledgeable and entertaining and was a fabulous guide. We loved the kayaking and the views but even better was seeing whales! He led us out to some and knew when to just sit and watch and how to find them. We saw sooo many and got so close to same it was amazing! Would recommend this tour to anyone.

Ps Jeremiah we didn't have cash and tried to venmo you as you know but your username didn't come up!

A beautiful day
Dec 2020
Ok my wife is partially paralyzed in one leg and I am way overweight. This trip was on our bucket list. Jeremiah was our guide today. He was helpful and thorough in his instructions. Lots of cheerful banter. He took our challenges in stride. Right off the bat my wife dumped us over. Jeremiah sorted us out and got us going. We had a beautiful time. When we ran out steam on the way back to shore he helped us out again. I recommend both Keliis Kayak tours and Jeremiah highly.

Lifetime Experience
Mar 2020
Wow. We picked Kelii’s Kayak Tours for the positive reviews and more intimate experience than the larger boat excursions. Still, we didn't expect the outing to become one of our Top Ten experiences ever. We met Curtis at 7:00 am to find it would just be the three of us that morning. Formerly in the Coast Guard, Curtis is proficient in all things marine, so we learned much about Maui and its ocean environs while paddling in calm waters with very few others around. Having kayaked only a few times in the ocean, his instruction was terrific – including helping us learn how to exit and board a kayak offshore.

Then came the real excitement. We saw numerous whales breaching in the distance but after about twenty minutes of paddling, a whale slowly surfaced just 20 feet from our kayak. A thrill. As we stayed quiet in the kayak, we were then treated to 15 minutes of two whales “singing” back and forth to each other – likely a mother and her calf. Later, Curtis led us to a large coral reef where we spotted several sea turtles and swam through schools of fish for at least 30 minutes. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect morning in wild Maui.
