North Shore surf bus

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.

This is a great day out with the majority of the day doing things on your own. You not only see the north shore but can choose so many activities to do and it is all so easyily organised. Sam our driver was very cool and told us alot about the island that was really interesting and relevant to everyone,... More

We loved riding around and checking out the beaches and the stand up paddle boarding... More

I had Sam as my tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and also just a really nice person. The activities on offer were great and there was something for everybody. Would recommend to anyone who wants to experience the North Shore first hand and not from a bus window.
