Where are we going today?

The Surf Bus connects you with your dream activities, without the rigmarole of arranging it all.

The North Shore of Oahu has clean uncrowded beaches and is known to the locals as 'the country', where they come to play. Visit Haleiwa Town, the “surfing capital of the world”. Watch surfers catch humongous waves in the winter time at the infamous Pipeline or snorkel with turtles in the summer. It’s just cool! The Surf Bus will give you the right equipment, instructions and a location briefing for your 2 and 1/2 hour adventure. Then, we stop to check the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, go have lunch or even back to beach at the Historic Haleiwa Town. There’s something fun for the whole family!

    My wife and I have vacationed here in Hawaii for the passed 4 years we are from Las Vegas we know about customer service. We tried the Surf Bus for the first time, we went bicycling and hiked to the waterfall in the town of Hale'iwa had a great lunch at Waialua Bakery and went to Turtle beach. Sam was our tour guide and driver. "Sam is the Man" he took customer service to a hold new level! Thanks Sam, had a Great time.

    Almost 4 years ago my husband and I were vacationing on Oahu and saw the Surf Bus just outside our hotel. So, we looked into it and found out that it not only was inexpensive but we had a lot of choices that we could pick from. We ended up snorkeling in sharks cove and had one of the best times of our lives. Four years later and we still talk about it and recommend it to everyone who is going to Oahu! My son is getting married next month and we've already booked our reservation with them!

    This was the highlight of my boyfriend and mine trip. We had so much fun. We wanted to do it again. If you want to get a lot done in one day this is the tour. We were able to see the North side of the island and it was beautiful. We were about to go snorkeling, swimming, and paddle boarding. Our tour guys was A.C. A really cool guy. He was a pleasure to meet. He was born and raised on Oahu and knowns many Island selects that he shares with you. I hope you get him. The tour is well worth the money.

    Best Day we had on our trip! We also did four other activities and this one was the least stressfull and most enjoyable! From the EASY pickup to the drop off at our motel. The group and bus is small and Sam our driver was very accomondiating and relaxing along with informative! It was like having a private tour of North Shore with a dozen people. The Bus is the perfect size and the group is small enough for you not to feel like you are on a "commercial" tour bus and one of the "herd". There is something for everyone on this day to the North...Read More

The Bus is the perfect size and the group is small enough for you not to feel like you are on a "commercial" tour bus and one of the "herd". There is something for everyone on this day to the North Shore. We watched the Pipeline surfers, visted the waterfall, spent time in the sun on the beach and had a great lunch and shopped in the small city. Highly recommend and very reasonably priced. Best way to see North Shore - letting them do the driving!
