Full description
Head out to Waimea Bay on Ocean Outfitters Hawaiian rollercoaster ride. This ocean adventure off the North Shore of Oahu lets you snorkel up close and personal with our marine friends. This tour operates from May 1st to Oct 31 and is closed during the high surf winter months. Dolphins, rays, turtles, and native Hawaiian reef fish are known to frequent the area. Some of the reef fish are found nowhere else in the world. Humpback whales make their annual journey to Hawaii between the months of November to April, so you can really see them strut their stuff in the pristine blue waters.

The boat ride is an absolute thrill!!! Both Brandon (captain) and Jen (guide) are wonderful. Jen free dived to the bottom to bring sea life to the surface for us to see. We didn’t climb the jump off rock point but Jen did and it looked pretty cool if you’re agile enough. Again, the boat ride is intense be sure to hold on tight!!!

We had an amazing experience in the North Shore waters with these guys. They knew exactly where to go to snorkel and knew a lot of local history and knowledge about the island, which was interesting to hear. Beautiful tour, only wish I had gotten to take more pictures of myself enjoying the snorkeling. Appreciate the great tour

Absolutely awesome experience!! And with local owner/operator that knows and loves the water and all the life it brings to the island. This is not your average tour operator. It was like meeting up with a friend and going on a personalized adventure. Could not recommend it more!! Fun! Fun! And more fun!!!
