Overview

Full day exploring North Shore Beaches with swimming, Paddle boarding, Kayaking, Waterfall Hiking & Island Tour Due to the Pandemic & recent changes to Hanauma Bay State Park policy, we cannot take guests to Hanauma Bay for snorkeling at this time. Temporarily until Hanauma Bay reopens to Commercial companies like us, we provide “Tour of North Shore (70%) and Sightseeing (30%)” to replace “The Tour of North Shore and Hanauma Bay In a Day”. This whole day tour will spend 70% of time in beach activities at North Shore including swimming, kayaking or paddle boarding, or Waterfall Hiking, and 30% of the time in sightseeing both the East and North-East Shores, which have some of the most breathtaking sights and where Jurassic Park, Jumanji, Here to Eternity, and 51st Dates had been filmed.
  • Full-day tour of Oahu's North Shore
  • Skip the hassle of renting a car—transportation included
  • Swimming and snorkeling in Hanauma Bay

The trip was expensive for no freebies, basically just paying for a ride in van. The tour guide was arrogant and yelled at passenger who got off the van to get money at ATM. Not worth the money!

It was a great experience. More time is needed at the waterfall hike. Waterfall hike was a bit too rushed. The trip should be longer.

By far the best tour ever taken! Must give the highest accolades to our tour guide, Kui. He gave the most memorable experience full of knowledge and charisma being from North Shore himself. He created an intimate and comfortable experience, and provided our group with the most memorable adventures and breathtaking views. Don’t think we’ll ever have a better tour guide and overall tour day like this. Thank you Kui and team!

This tour was nice but there was a few downsides. No one mentiones that you need to pay for every single activity you’re doing. Basically you’re paying for a bus ride which could be found for cheaper. Such a complete waste of money. If I’m paying a lot of money already everything should be included

Great tour! Strongly recommend. You get to see most of the island in one day. And let me tell you Hawai’i outside of Waikiki is so much more beautiful. Kurt and Tiho are great!!! So hopefully you get them as your tour crew. Very knowledgeable.
