We ended up not "hopping off" at all. We stayed on the same trolleys for the entire rides (Red Line and Blue Line) and enjoyed the info shared by the drivers. We took these rides on the first full day we were on Oahu and they were a great way to familiarize us with what was there and what we wanted to see again.

Absolutely Awesmazing! I am so in love with scuba . My first time ever and this has me hooked . I felt safe and had so much fun
