Choose your own adventure!

Travelers can choose from one of two different hiking/snorkeling adventures:

West Side is the Best Side:
With its almost constant offshore winds, the water stays clear and the skies sunny. After pick up at your hotel/cruise ship, head out west and begin the short, but moderately challenging, hike up to the pink WWII era bunker that lies at the top of the ridge. Actually one of five bunkers on this particular ridge, the Pink Pillbox is the largest and most recognizable. Afterwards, go for a snorkel at Electric Beach. Swim with a wide variety of marine wildlife while you cool off from your morning workout!

North Shore:
The North Shore is best to snorkel/swim in the spring thru fall months due to the massive swells battering the coastline in the winter. On the right day, however, Shark's Cove is one of the best and most convenient snorkeling spots on Oahu. After your morning snorkel at the Cove, hike along Kaena Point to the bird sanctuary at the end. You can't get much further away from it all!


*Due to weather conditions, some locations may not be safe for snorkeling at some times of the year. Before booking, please contact me*

Recommended start time is 8:30, however we have some flexibility. This itinerary is based on an 8:30am start time:
