Drive straight to the famous Banzai Pipeline beach, where the surfing world's champion is decided each year. Hit up Turtle Town, the Dole Pineapple Plantation, and Waimea Bay as your guide provides engaging narrative. 

Make a pit stop for lunch at a local restaurant (included with upgrade) and go swimming or stand-up paddleboarding (included with upgrade). Continue to Hanauma Bay, where you can swim and snorkel at what is considered one of the island's best beaches. Be treated to sights of flourishing coral, bright tropical fish, and the occasional sea turtle.

Wrap up your tour and head back to your Waikiki hotel.

Uncle Jimbo was an excellent tour guide and did a great job at explaining Hawaii’s history and culture along the way. With covid going on we were not able to go to Hanauma Bay but instead we got a more intimate tour of local spots around North Shore and got to kayak on the “Lazy River.” We saw like 10 sea turtles and enjoyed the local spots along the way.

Fun day seeing parts of the island I hadn’t seen. So nice to have someone else do the driving and our guide was excellent. His knowledge of the island was remarkable. The highlight was a kayaking trip we took up a river that feeds into the ocean. We saw huge sea turtles in the fresh water river. Such a good time.

Jimbo was fantastic! We saw at least 15 turtles, ate the best coconut shrimp we have ever had, and had a blast the entire time. I loved how knowledgeable he was about the islands and how willing he was to answer our questions and help us take photos! Highly recommend!

I liked this tour, it allowed me to see the island. Snorkeling was the highlights. The beautiful fish is very close to the shore. It makes it possible even for people who don't want to swim far to enjoy it... Cameron our guide was great, providing info, taking care of us and helping with pictures

Was one of the best tours I have ever been on! Our guide Cam was friendly, funny, and fantastic. It felt like he was part of our family by the end of the day. Lunch at the shrimp truck and paddle boarding were the highlights of the day. The scenery was breathtaking. We would never have been able to cover the area and do the things that we did on our own. I cannot recommend this tour enough!

Had the best time!! Bo took us around, told us lots of stories and history during the commute. Saw Pipeline, Waimea Bay, toured Haleiwa, Dole Plantation, took the scenic trip to Hanauma Bay seeing the Stairway to Heaven and Hanola Blowhole Lookout. Recommend this activity BIG TIME!
