You’re in good hands with the Kama’aina Kayak and Snorkel Eco-Ventures Team! All of our waterfront staff are lifeguard, CPR, first aid, and AED certified. We also all have the State of Hawaii boating and ocean safety certification and are ACA (American Canoe Association) certified ocean kayak instructors and US Sailing certified instructors. We are recognized as a Certified Sustainable Eco-Tour Operator by the Hawaii Ecotourism Association, and two of our guides have had the distinction of winning the HEA’s Sustainable Tour Guide of the Year (in 2013 and 2018). Our staff have attended Hawaii Marine Animal Response training and NOAA’s Oahu Ocean Awareness Training. We have unique backgrounds, but all of our waterfront staff have one thing in common; a passion for enjoying, preserving, and protecting Hawaii’s beautiful marine ecosystems and culture!
