Escaping the bustle of Waikiki, you’ll be immersed in the more local side of Oahu — from snorkeling alongside sea turtles to the chance to try Hawaiian shave ice and a quintessential plate lunch.
Our Island tour was great, the swim with the turtles was amazing, something we will never forget. Our guide was very professional and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend it.
There is so much to this beautiful island and we got to experience just some of its awesomeness on this tour. Our tour guide was super friendly and shared a wealth of knowledge with us.
A must see , from KC the driver to the great lookout stops. Lunch to dole farm. But time spent with the turtles with alway be with my wife and I .My wife's first time snorkelling , the guild spent 10 minutes helping 3 people understand what to do . And it was on. In 60 minutes seen 10-12 turtles swimming past . Some stopping to eat the sea grass .others looking at us please do this tour.
It was a very good tour. Feel like we really saw old Hawaii. Raul was patient with those that had not snorkeled before. Our tour ran a little long, that was my only complaint. It was awesome overall. Highly recommend.
Even though we had a rainy day it didn't stop us from having a great day. Our tour guide Raul was full of interesting facts and lots of fun. It's a great way to see the island outside of Waikiki. Highlight of the day was definitely swimming with the sea turtles.
This tour is good if you want to see a lot of different things, especially if you aren't renting a car. It has several stops for pictures of different views and beaches. It also stops at Dole and a Macadamia nut farm, which are good to see, but you don't need a lot of time at. There is a lot of getting on and off the bus. I wouldn't recommend buying the deluxe package as you can buy your own lunch and if you decide you want to kayak or paddle board you can purchase it there. I'd recommend wearing flip flops. There's not a lot of walking, but some will be on the beach. You don't need your bathing suit until halfway through the day, but it will cut into your snorkeling time if you have to walk to the bathroom to change. Also, bring a towel. Our guide Mark was very entertaining. We did see a lot of turtles as well. The food at lunch wasn't the best, but the fruit stand had these awesome fried bananas for only 1. Overall I think it's a good buy since it's a full day and you see so many different things.
Beautiful sceneries, great guide and the swimming with the turtles is really the crown of this tour.
This was an excellent small group tour in a minivan. Our driver, Raul, was very passionate and knowledgeable about the island. He also had a sense of humour and looked after us very well. There were only ten of us on the tour which made it very personal. The tour was very comprehensive and covered a lot of the island which we wouldn't otherwise have seen as we only had two days in Hawaii. The highlight was snorkelling with the green turtles. Although the water was a bit murky, Raul helped us to find the turtles. Would thoroughly recommend this tour.
Was very good tour. Saw lots of island that would never have seen on own. Beautiful beaches etc. Lots of info with Justin. Was just what said on the tin. Only saw one turtle but was fine. Didn and #39;t like food but it was good to experience. Would highly recommend if you just want to see take photos and go
This tour was advertised as a Turtle tour through the company that runs the tour. Only about an hour is spent with the tours- the water is very murky. I only saw the turtles twice, my husband didn't see any at all. Overall, the tour was fun and we got to see a lot of the island. Like most of these tours, they take you to all of the tour traps small gift stores where you stay for 20 minutes.... Our bus driver, King Mike, was very nice and easy going. Recommended if you're interested in seeing the island, not recommended if you want to snorkel with turtles.
