  • Oahu: North Shore Snorkeling Tour from Haleiwa

    1. Oahu: North Shore Snorkeling Tour from Haleiwa

    Head out to Waimea Bay on Ocean Outfitters Hawaiian rollercoaster ride. This ocean adventure off the North Shore of Oahu lets you snorkel up close and personal with our marine friends. This tour operates from May 1st to Oct 31 and is closed during the high surf winter months. Dolphins, rays, turtles, and native Hawaiian reef fish are known to frequent the area. Some of the reef fish are found nowhere else in the world. Humpback whales make their annual journey to Hawaii between the months of November to April, so you can really see them strut their stuff in the pristine blue waters.

    We had an amazing experience in the North Shore waters with these guys. They knew exactly where to go to snorkel and knew a lot of local history and knowledge about the island, which was interesting to hear. Beautiful tour, only wish I had gotten to take more pictures of myself enjoying the snorkeling. Appreciate the great tour

What people are saying about North Shore, Oahu

It was a great experience, we books a couple if days in advance and we had a hiccup and the system cancelled 4 out of 5 of our tickets on the day on the outing, but Kevin and his team made it work and they where beyond accommodating to make our last day in Hawaii a very memorable one. The time out at sea was relax and the kids felt supported and safe… my 10 year old said after “if I had money I would tip them” we absolutely did but that tells you how happy they were.

Absolutely awesome experience!! And with local owner/operator that knows and loves the water and all the life it brings to the island. This is not your average tour operator. It was like meeting up with a friend and going on a personalized adventure. Could not recommend it more!! Fun! Fun! And more fun!!!

Excellent time. We saw spinner dolphins, sea turtles and lots of different fish. The guides Kevin and Mikala were wonderful, attentive and just plain rad!
