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

Some of the tour was closed but the tour guide was great at making up with other sights. Had a blast seeing the lush north shore. The stops were great for active people or laid back sightseeing. Food truck had the most amazing shrimp and the resturant by paddle board had the best drinks! I would recommend this tour..we had a blast!

Our guide was Jimbo and he was so nice and funny. They are really good with communication before the trip and the pick up was right on time. We had to make a few adjustments to the route due to COVID restrictions, but they made it so fun for us. The kayaking was a highlight because we got to see turtles and a sting ray. Jimbo even saved a bird that dropped into the water. Thank you!
