This was an absolute blast! We received complimentary margaritas, beers, and soft drinks while our captain explained to us about the history of Oahu. It was really interesting to learn all about the early development of Oahu and that it used to be wetlands and that the sand was from the north shore. He really knew a lot and was able to tell us about the wild life we saw and answer our questions about the mountains, local restaurants, must gos and where to avoid. It was honestly the highlight of our trip and was something the family (all different ages) enjoyed. Only thing is that I wish it were longer :)

The tour was very informative and well guided. We saw Sea turtles, dolphins, various fish species, and a sunken boat. Friendly staff provided refreshments and solid information about the harbor and reef.

Had a free day so we booked the 11.00 tour. water was a little choppy but still clear and blue. Saw schools of black fish, turtles and went over a shipwreck. The view of the beach and diamond head was amazing.
