What people are saying about Oahu

Cameron was fantastic! It just was me and my 10 year old on the tour and man it was great! First time on the island and it was definitely worth booking this. Took us to a great place to eat took a lot of pictures answered all of our questions. He was great with my daughter you would've never guessed that she's on the shy side by the way she felt comfortable with him. I'm also a commerical bus driver so I'm extra anal with how people drive but I totally felt safe with Cameron behind the wheel which is not something I usually feel. We were even bummed when the tour ended cuz we had such a great time! I wish Cameron could be our personal tour guide for all our world travels!!

Oahu: Highlights of Oahu Small Group Tour Reviewed by Stephanie, 10/25/2020

Captain Jim and First Mate Kiko made the event one of the best/memorable experiences on our trip to Honolulu. They were funny, kind, and very informative of the land/sea. He had jokes and they both interacted with everyone on the entire boat1 Their excitement made it super fun and her photo skills are bomb. We looked great! haha, I highly recommend this outing to anyone who travels to Honolulu. They are truly kind humans! We would definitely do this ride over and over! domo arigato! mahalo! Thanks a whole bunch! <3Angie

Absolutely would recommend this to everyone. I wouldn't call it a glass bottom tour necessarily, most of the entertainment came from being out in the water and viewing the island. The captain was very knowledgeable and knew alot of fun facts about the ocean, buildings, harbors, everything. Learned alot! Extremely satisfied, completely worth it

Sam was our tour guide! Amazing to hear the history of the island and listen to Hawaiian music. We chose 2 activities and had a great tour. We were beat by the time we arrived home. Door to door service practically! Thank you The Surf Bus!!!

Such a fun cruise! The boat was great, the crew was fun but professional, and we felt comfortable with the limited capacity. Highly recommend this cruise, especially during COVID as the boat can only hold 25% or so of its normal capacity.
