Pricing on the checkout page comes directly from the tour operator, therefore, pricing listed on the website may vary from those in the checkout due to the tour operator changing the prices without notifying us. If you notice any prices are not correct, Contact Us so that we can update that information.
The price at the checkout is always the correct and accurate price and will be the same price you will pay if you were to book direct with that tour operator. We protect you against arriving at a destination and finding the same tour or activity offered at a lower price from our operator.
We believe you should get the lowest price possible offered by the tour operator. Many tour operators offer online booking discounts and we try to make sure those are posted on our website. We try to keep those updated, but sometimes they expire or change. If you notice any discount codes don’t work or are missing, Contact Us so that we can update that information.
Transactions on ActiveOahu.com are made directly with the tour operator you booked with, so you will need to abide by the tour operator’s cancellation policy which is included in the confirmation email you receive after booking a tour. The tour operator’s cancellation policy is also included on the specific activity and company pages on ActiveOahu.com
Most tour operators will gladly refund your purchase if it’s more than 48 hours before your activity start time. If you have trouble getting in contact with the company you booked with, give us a call at (808)498-1894 and we can probably help you out. The tour operator’s contact information is included in the confirmation email.
All refund decisions will be made by the tour operator you book with.
Taxes and fees are included at checkout. Hawaii General Excise Tax is 4.127%. If you are booking online, FareHarbor, the vendor who owns and operates the booking software, charges an online booking fee, normally about 6%.
If you would rather not pay the online convenience fee, call us at (808)498-1894 and we can help you book your activities over the phone.
"100% recommend! Our family (party of 6) started off our Christmas Day with their Snorkeling tour. Francesco and Gerald were the best! It was our first time snorkeling and they took us to awesome places to see turtles and plenty of ocean life. They gave clear instructions, guided us throughout the entire process, and made us feel very safe. They were also super knowledgeable about the area and sites."
"I'm going to be honest, I was a little worried about being on a boat for several hours but this experience was amazing and very fun. Francesco and Gerald really made this an unforgettable day!"
"What a fantastic tour! Beautiful boat, great crew, and a wonderful outing. They knew just the right spots to view the abundant sealife and took the time to make sure we had a first rate experience. We swam with the turtles, saw dozens of dolphins, and we even spotted a whale! I highly recommend Hawaii Ocean Charters. Aloha!"
Cruising up the coastline you will make stops along the way for any turtles, dolphins, or whales we may spot during our journey. Once at the top of the route, you’ll find a calm anchorage to swim, snorkel, dip your toes and sunbathe.
