Had the great opportunity to get Jay as our tour guide! He was funny, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and informative the entire tour. It’s a lot of sight-seeing in a single day, so having someone who knows his way and history taking us around was definitely an enjoyable experience. He was also able to get us to most of the locations before the other groups, and it made a huge difference in the amount of time we spent waiting, which naturally resulted in more time at each stop. At the snorkeling location, I recommend making friends with the lifeguards, as they have a better view on land and I probably never would have found a turtle if they didn’t tell me where to look. Great picture locations, great food, great tour guide, and the sea turtle video we got was a bonus. I highly recommend this experience to anyone interested in spending a productive day in Oahu, without having to worry about planning or driving. Shout out to Jay for a day well spent. Mahalo!
