    Don’t use the go Oahu pass at Pearl Harbor things. They aren’t very expensive to do the extra tours and getting in the park is actually free. Use your pass on things that would cost a lot to do, like the Polynesian Cultural Center. We mistakenly paid full price for that not realizing it was included, and saved it for Pearl Harbor and that was barely any cost.

    Had an overall pretty good time. Wasn’t impressed with the snorkeling. I was really looking forward to that. That was one main reason I scheduled this. It rained the day before and the waters were super cloudy. Couldn’t see anything and didn’t get to see any sea turtles. So if you’re wanting to snorkel with turtles I wouldn’t recommend this trip.

We had a smaller sized tour bus (due to COVID) which is actually preferable as it allowed us to have more conversations as a smaller group and made the experience more enjoyable. Our guide Kimo was very engaging, inviting questions, making jokes, and knew a lot about Hawaii.

Amazing experience overall. It was a group of 4 first time surfers and it couldn't have been a better experience. We all stood up multiple times and our instructors were so patient and encouraging and get amazing shots of us. Can't say enough good things

Amazing experience with the doors off! Beautiful scenery and you get to see a lot of the island. We got a little more than the 45 mins :) Cat, our guide was wonderful. If you’re afraid of heights and don’t like turbulence, I wouldn’t recommend.

We were well treated by excellent crew - Chris, Quinn and Tyler. Lots of Dolphins, and saw a number of different fish at the snorkeling site - including a sea turtle. Exactly as written in the ad for the trip. Well worth the money

We had a real awesome and fun time! Would definitely do the whole experience again!
