This was truly one of the highlights of our Hawaiian trip. Woody was so patient with our "brand new kayaking" abilities. Was incredibly educational and enjoyable. I refer EVERYONE to there. THANK YOU

Woody made this experience fun and informative, I had my two young kids 6 and 3 with me and even they felt engaged with the stories. Thank you woody

We had fun paddle boarding in the lagoon. The most relaxing and serene thing the tour guide let us do was to lie on the board looking up at the stars. The tour guide, Woody? Was entertaining and funny. Time went by fast.

Oh yeah, we definitely can't think of a better scenario to learn how to paddle board for the first time. You don't even need to learn to swim because the lagoon is only 3 feet deep! Thanks for coming!

One of our best decisions at North Shore Explorers was bringing Woody on. Thanks for validating that decision! We love when our customers tell us how their tour guides made their experience so positive!

You know they say Happiness is expectations minus reality. So by that logic, reality plus low expectations must equal happiness. Or maybe we're just getting too introspective... glad you guys had a great time!
