Hiking Diamond Head before sunrise was one of the most unique adventures we experienced in Hawaii. This tour was the highlight of our vacation. Jonah was the best guide: personable, accommodating, patient, and knowledgeable. Starting our day early with the hike up to Diamond head gave us a sense of accomplishment and allowed us to connect to nature first thing in morning before driving around North Shore. Unlike any other tour! Highly recommend very memorable experience!

Hike was worth it alone! Cruise was riding along to drop off the people going on the submarine tour, which we had already done. If we had understood that, we wouldn’t have gone on the boat (again). Lovely guide and skipped the line at the hike; got there just in time for the sunrise.

This was so amazing Our captain and his wife are just to sweet. I would do this is again and advise anyone to not pass up on this amazing sunset.

Got to see all the Island and what it has to offer Matt the pilot was very informative and knowledgeable

Shannon O’Brian did a great job showing us the island He was energetic and very informative
