Perfect for us
, Jun 2021
We did the water fall activity and ate there as well. Absolutely beautiful. Sam was our bus driver/ tour guide. It was a smaller bus with 20-25 people and not like the large tour busses. It is a locally owned company and you can contact them directly. I would definitely recommend this tour to get to the north shore and to do some activities.
Great experience

You will see turtles so if your kids want to see them, beats paying to see One underwater. Kayak is set up, and you go up the river. Turtles swimming...and then on the beach later.
Great experience

Our tour guide is very knowledgeable and had a lot of fun facts about Hawaii that were very interesting. Definitely made our ride to North Shore a lot shorter and more enjoyable.

Great way to see the north shore without staying on a bus all day

Great solo activity. Loved the waterfall hike and kayaking. Wish we had a little more time for the afternoon activity but it was a very fun trip.
