I highly recommend scheduling this tour toward the beginning of your vacation, if possible! Our guide, Sai, was knowledgeable and so kind. This tour gave us the opportunity to get out of the Waikiki area and discover a few new places to add to our itinerary. Because of this tour we changed our plans for a day, rented a car, and explored more around North Shore! The snacks, samples and lunch were delicious! Definitely try the fried banana at the fruit stand and the Dole whip at the Dole Plantation, even though those cost extra (they are so worth it ) I can't say enough about how awesome this tour was!

Great please to see turtles. We saw plenty before snorkeling. Went to 2 locations. The first was my favorite, on a black sand beach. The second was a bit colder temp for the water and very shallow. We saw turtles at both locations

Nacho Tiffany Chris and Jim were really helpful and friendly guides. Beautiful location.

Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and the views were amazing!

Thoroughly enjoyed this package. It was informative and entertaining.
