Captain Sean was obnoxious, disorganized and brought us out in conditions that were way too rough. He did not have proper and well-maintained equipment including no fins and poor fitting snorkel masks. I would not recommend.

Sean was an awesome guide, gentle teacher and font of information. We took a leisurely kayak trip, stopped to snorkel and had delicious snacks. Never hurried, and up for whatever, Sean made the trip fit our group's needs. Great deal.

We rented SUP boards for the week in Puako. Sean dropped them off and picked up for us. He also checked in us during the week to see how things were going. We had a blast paddling off the Puako coast... Thank you to Sean...More
