What people are saying about Oahu

Blue Planet is awesome! Very accommodating and very knowledgeable. There are 13 of us that booked a paddle board session and a few relatives that wasn't paddle boarding stayed at their doc and was able to capture a lot of photos for those of us paddle boarding. It was a great experience for both paddle boarders and some of our family members. We had so much fun. Very friendly staff and knowledgeable. They give you a very good instruction if you have not paddle boarded before. Nice easy activity as we did paddle board on the river under the Rainbow bridge and some of the kids were even able to jump out of the bridge to the river after. Everyone had a blast. Thank you Blue Planet for hosting our activity.

Nice morning kayaking out to a beautiful sand bar. We saw several large turtles and had a great workout. I would recommend using sunscreen and only booking a half day; easy to see it all in that time.

Guide was helpful and despite the weather we had a great time!
