Great experience with this crew. Very good pre-arrival communication with clear instructions, quick response to questions, easy to follow maps, and day-before follow through. Weather started out lousy, and their other clients cancelled, but we were nearing the end of our visit and could not reschedule. The Reeled In team called to ask what we wanted to do. They had no problem meeting us for our rainy day and my 20 year old grandson enjoyed his private lesson with Russ. Went through on-land practice, and then into the water. My grandson was up and surfing 10 minutes after they entered the water. Russ was very patient with my grandson, made him feel comfortable. 45 minutes into the lesson, my grandson was doing pivot jumps on his board. They provided a nice cloth armchair and umbrella for me to watch from the shore. Nice beach with reasonable waves. Grandson and I felt safe. Only regret is that the weather was too poor for their professional photography. Be sure to leave this team a nice tip, they are well worth it. I highly recommend this well prepared, professional Reeled In Surf team.

Mark collected us right on time and made us feel comfortable from the start. After a chat about what we wanted to see, he made sure we had plenty of time at each stop, took us to all the best food and dessert stops, beaches and famous places, and stopped at places well off the map. We finished up with some shopping and Mark had us back at our hotel 12 hrs after he picked us up. Its just a great day, that we would recommend to anyone.

great place to walk along the beachside at any time of day. Nicely paved and wide enough for runners and walkers. Very popular early in the morning.

White Plains Beach

Reviewed By John S - Kapolei, Hawaii

This is a beginner surfing beach. There are surfboard rentals available. The long sand beach is good for sunbathing. On occasion a Hawaiian Monk Seal will come to shore to sun-bathe. If that happens caution tape is in place to keep people from approaching them too closely.
This area used to be a military recreation area and still does have beach houses for Military and Dept. of Defense personnel on the far west shore of the beach. The bathroom, picnic area, stage, and former restaurant are part of this beach area that was maintained by the military until the Barber's Point Military Airbase was turned over to the State of Hawaii..
If you're new to Hawaii, your best bet is to use GPS. Main Directions start with an exit from the H-1 Freeway at Makakilo Drive. Do NOT go uphill! Go toward the beach using Ft. Barrett Road, turn left on Franklin D. Roosevelt, turn right on Coral Sea Rd. past the old landing strip. Turn left on Tripoli Road. Turn right on Essex Rd. and it will loop into the beach parking lot.
Lifeguards are present. This rather remote area is safe with police patrols checking the parking area on a regular basis. The shallow reef on lower tides are often waist deep for long stretches. The surf rolls gently with long reforms of the peaks.
The downside of this beach is that the surf is often blown out by side on-shore winds. Picnics and barbecues are suggested because of the lack of restaurant facilities.
Get ready for a unique beach day!

These areas are great for swimming. The area is protected by some rock structures to break the waves so it is calm for swimming next to the resorts. Great areas for children.

Hawaii Plantation Village

A sugar cane plantation village with 30 homes open to the public for viewing.

Reviewed By AprilFool27 - California

This was a very enjoyable experience. The tour guide was very informative, funny, and interactive. They had umbrellas to borrow as it was raining so it did not inhibit our enjoyment of the village. There are examples of living quarters for the immigrant groups that came to work in the sugar cane fields. I had no idea there were so many. The price is reasonable and would be great for a family with school age children.

Reviewed By lisawQ5480WK

We purchased tickets in advance and sat in the beautifully restored cozy parlor car reserved seating area. We had a wonderful private guide who shared so much of the history of the railroad and the surrounding areas. We went on the Sunday train that scheduled a stop at an ice cream shop. The parlor car seats were very comfortable and we could see everything through the large windows on both sides of the train. The scenery was just beautiful through the towns to the beach which was gorgeous. Our guide had so many great stories to share. Truly a fun experience.
