Do not go on this tour. I haven’t felt rushed on any of my tours but this one. The pictures and description are not this tour. I know because of covid certain things are a no go but this tour was not even close. It was such a waste of a day. Not to mention the tour guide was rude. With all the tours available to go on in Hawaii choose something else.

Best excursion ever!

This was our absolute favorite tour we took in Hawaii! If you want a tour that provides the opportunity to get off a bus and explore the north shore then this is the tour for you!! Our tour guide Sam was the absolute best!! He was so knowledgeable about the island and went out of his was to share everything he knew as we traveled to our excursion destinations! We chose to snorkel and paddle board! We saw so many fish and even turtles while snorkeling! You got your gear and were able to explore the shoreline and the reef on your own, which was a blast! We would definitely recommend this tour/excursion to anyone who doesn’t want to just spend 8 hours sitting on a bus!

The beautiful sight seeing we got to experience. The activities would have been great but the waterfall was shut down and the snorkeling wasn’t the best because the tides were rough. Our tour guide did a great job making up for it though.

Sam was a fantastic guide! He made this experience great. We loved the snorkeling experience at Shark’s Cove. If you go, make sure to hit the deeper section to the east. That’s where you will see some amazing fish!! The whole day was very enjoyable.

The Surf Bus actually stops at one of the three Marine sanctuaries on Oahu so it's great to hear that you had a good time snorkeling. Hope to see you guys again in the future.
