Over the last 30 months, we have put significant effort into renovating and enhancing this website. We have improved the user experience, look, speed, and accessibility. Not to brag, but we really like the new design and feel.

While we will continue to improve those things, we also want to provide you with as much information as possible. One of our goals is to be the most transparent Hawaii private island tour Company on the island.

More positive developments in Hawaii for 2022

We made it through, thanks to the best guests ever!

Okay, we are not saying itʻs over or not. But weʻre obviously hoping that the worst of this entire situation is way behind us. We cannot express how important your support has been over the last two and a half years. There is no possible way to explain how much it meant. Whether you decided not to travel or specifically made a point to try and support a devastated industry, thank you. We appreciate the different perspectives and paths. Every reassuring comment, dollar spent, friend referred, or positive thought made a difference and mattered.
