“We had a great time! Bradley was the best-thanks for the great memories! Can’t wait to come back to the Island, to do it again!”

“We had a fantastic time with Active Oahu Tours, and went on many tours with them during our two week stay in Oahu. Spencer and Mike were both great guides, and had that fantastic and rare mixture of encouragement and patience when it came to youngest in the family (and sometimes the older ones too!) Highly recommended!”

“They were professional and fun! We had limited mobility and they were still able to show us amazing things and took perfect care of us. They really cared about us and only wanted to see us have a good vacation.”

Activity Overview

We offer a free-form Oahu snorkel tour with snorkel locations either on the east side of Oahu or North Shore Oahu. We’re flexible due to the variety of snorkel locations, guest experience and variable conditions depending on the season or weather. Currently our snorkel experiences are all from the shoreline, either a rocky entry or sandy entry depending on the guests. We are also exploring some kayak/snorkel combinations, so if you want to contact us we can get you setup with one of those experiences.

Some of the locations we like to go to include:

Sharks Cove – One of the best snorkel and dive spots on the island! It’s great for beginners and even better for more experienced snorkelers. With all sorts of lava tubes and varying depths around the whole cove, you can explore some sweet pockets of ocean life. There are always fish hanging about along with scattered coral and sea urchins. If you are lucky you’ll also see sea turtles (more common) and sting rays (less common). All in all, Sharks cove is best for it’s ever-changing lava tubes and great underwater views.

If you are looking to do scuba, Book Online with Banzai Divers Hawaii. Their Lava Tubes and Cathedral Scuba is great!

Other Spots on Windward Oahu – We won’t reveal each spot since a lot of it has to do with weather/water conditions and we like to keep some of these spots to ourselves.
