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

Tiho made the whole trip seems rushed.

The hike to the falls and kayaking at the beach was fun. The lunch was very average. Tiho talked as much or more about keeping schedule than he did about the tour making the whole experience seemed rushed.

I think the tour was great for someone who wants to know the history of O'ahu. It is definitely good for sightseeing. Tiho is a fantastic guide. I wish there would be some local spots on the tour to buy coconut/pineapple drinks.

This was my favorite tour. Oahu is so much more than Waikiki beach and I'm glad I got to see a lot more of the island. Kurt was an entertaining guide and Philip got us all around the island safely. It was especially nice to spend time on some of the beaches that were not crowded. The stop for a Dole whip at the end was the perfect cap to a wonderful day.

The tour guide was rude to the bus driver and it made for a very uncomfortable day. The whole tour is very rushed with only a few minutes spent at each site.

This tour provides everything it advertises including pick up and drop off at your hotel. There are several stops for taking pictures of the beautiful scenery, opportunities to swim, paddle board, kayak, or hike. Our tour guide, Kurt, was a gem. He kept us on schedule and provided lots of laughs. Phillip was our driver. He got us there and back safely and couldn't have been nicer. Overall, great tour!
