We had been to the North Shore on an island tour 2 years ago and wanted to spend the day there this time- but we didn't want to rent a car etc. The Surf Bus tour was perfect. We got to spend time doing what we wanted and not forced to see or do stuff we didn't want to. You... More

The Surf Bus was a great way to see the North Shore of Hawaii. The drivers are super knowledgeable and made the trip enjoyable. Highly recommend the North Shore Shrimp Truck if you want to taste some great Shrimp. Please remember to tip at least $10 per head, the drivers work hard to make your time super enjoyable and deserve... More

Sam was our tour guide for the day. We took our trip about 2 weeks ago now and it was very well run. We got off the bus at The Pipeline and chose to walk back to Waimea Bay. The option for that trip was to do the bike ride between waimea and I think it is sunset beach. I... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Sam on the surf bus. The inclusion of activities as opposed to just visiting sites on a bus for the day was great. Highly recommend the bike ride. Surf bus was recommended to us by a friend and we would happily recommend it to our friends.

We loved the flexibility of this tour, plenty of time to do your own thing and make the tour personal to your interests: 3 hours in the morning either bike riding, snorkelling or Waimea Falls and 1.5 hours to standup paddle board, kayak or simply explore Haleiwa by foot. In the morning we chose to ride a tandem bike past... More

We went with The Surf Bus to tour the north shore. Most tours are the island circle and you do not get to see much of the north shore. The north shore was awesome. Before we got there stopped and had a choice of paddle board or kayaking. We did the kayak. So much fun. Mike made this wonderful part... More

We first went with The Surf Bus in 2012, and had the pleasure of an amazing experience. We returned with newbies to the Islands in 2017 and had to have a Surf Bus again. Mikele is a great guy with an absolute fount of local knowledge, which was much appreciated. We stopped at out-of-the-way local spots and saw and tasted... More

I went on the tour of the north shore with Mike as our tour guide and loved it! Beautiful scenery and fun activities combined with a knowledgeable and hilarious guide made it a blast! Well worth the money and something I would recommend to anyone visiting Hawaii.

The tour was awesome, Mike, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining . I learned more about Hawaii this week than I did in the last 40 year's, Mahalo.
