This tour is next level sightseeing. We mostly used our iPhones and Kurt had a lot of great suggestions for settings and such. My friends and family didn’t believe I took the pics I sent them. The vibes were relaxed and chill. My only regret is not booking the longer tour. Mahalo to Kurt and Oahu photo tours for a great experience.

Welcoming and friendly staff. Very knowledgeable about the local sealife. Not handicap accessible as it is a submarine. I did get to see two sharks. Really great experience.

Had the absolute best trip with Jackson and Manny! The sights were spectacular and açaí bowls were divine. Highly recommend this experience.

The crew was great we had a all female crew they were on top of making sure everyone was having a good time bringing drinks.

Ton was a wealth of knowledge regarding the islands and it’s history. We saw some amazing views.
