  • Agile boat allows access to remote areas that bigger boats can't reach

    This was my kids (6 years and 5 years old) favorite thing we did on our trip. Kevin, the owner of the boat was super fun towards our kids. He explained sea life in plain kids language. My little guy still repeats what he had learned from Kevin. We end up seeing bunch of sharks, whale family splashing their tails and a huge sea turtle. Kevin, a born Hawaiian, was also kind enough to guide us to some must see spots on North Shore. He made us feel like we were his friends not just another tourist. Thank you Kevin for an amazing time. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone visiting Oahu.

    We had a great time! We saw turtles, whales and sharks. The crew is knowledgeable and is eager to answer any questions you may have. This day was very windy and choppy and the Captain did a great job of making sure everyone was ok despite the rough waters and very high waves.
    Excellent Tour!

    The boat ride was a lot of fun! We didn't have much luck with spotting sea life, but that didn't prevent us from having a good time. Our guide was amazing, very knowledgeable and patient. This was definitely worth the money for us, and one of the favorite things we did on our trip!

    The crew was really nice. They tried their best to get the sharks to surface. We saw a few turtles 🐢 on the surface. We were hoping to see dolphins but no such luck. Overall it was a fun ride!! Be ready to get wet lol.
    Maximum experience, reasonable expense.
    Fernando_B, July 2021
    This was a blast, especially if you have younger kids. Our 9 and 11 loved it. Got to see a large pod of dolphins, turtles, and a shark. Captain and his assistant were very knowledgeable and engaging. Highly recommended.
