It was so cool to have the option to customize what we wanted to do. The waterfall hike here was incredible and pairing it with a snorkeling tour afterwords was a wonderful way that we could cool down after the hiking. I highly recommend booking with these guys if you’re on the North Shore.

This tour was amazing, we were able to do activities all day we went on a tour around the island and we did snorkel in the marine reserve!

This was a great adventure. We saw almost the entire island and we visited the pineapple dole plantation-they had a killer ice cream. My kid had a great time doing snorkeling for the first time!
