Set sail on a unique boat tour on Oahu that takes you beyond the usual tourist hotspots. This tour embarks on the waters of North Shore in a fast, agile vessel designed to reach remote locations that bigger boats can’t access. Prepare to encounter marine wildlife such as dolphins, sharks, rays, sea turtles, and, during migration season, humpback whales. Unlike conventional boat tours, this North Shore-focused adventure offers a more intimate experience with a maximum of 18 passengers, eliminating the issue of overcrowding.

What to Expect
- Waimea Bay: Located in Haleiwa on Oahu’s North Shore, at the mouth of the Waimea River, Waimea Bay offers an enthralling spectacle of towering waves during winter. Known as the starting point for North Shore’s winter swells, the most massive waves usually crash at Waimea Beach Park on the bay’s right side.
- North Shore: A must-visit for pro-surfers worldwide, North Shore offers unrivaled surfing experiences, especially when the National Weather Service issues high surf warnings. Alongside Sunset Beach and the Banzai Pipeline, the North Shore is a surfing pilgrimage destination.
