Posted on Tue, 2015/02/24 - 9:00am by Jessica Gellert

Our awesome Guide and Surf Instructor Rocky Canon was featured on In the article he shared his perfect North Shore Day...

It would begin with a sunrise helicopter tour of Oahu on our custom MD-500 Magnum P.I. replica, complete with a landing on top of Kualoa Ridge with amazing views. Once landed on the grassy ridge, a nice light breakfast would be brought along to have on the mountain ridge as the sun warms up the day.

Our chopper would then fly you back to Turtle Bay Resort, where the Hawaiian Water Patrol, an elite team of surf rescue specialists on jet skis, accompanied by pro surfer Makua Rothman would be waiting for your personal tour of the North Shore by sea.You would see the views only few people in the world get to see, with big waves breaking nearby but in complete safety in the hands of the best water safety experts on the planet. Makua would even go catch a few waves for you to watch.

If you’re a surfer, the Hawaiian Water Patrol team would take you to some of the best waves only realistically accessible by boat or jet ski.

After you’ve had your fill of waves and spectacular views of the ocean, the jet skis would take you out to another vessel where you would meet up with expert shark diver Kimmy Werner for an unforgettable shark dive experience. The jet skis would then buzz you in to Haleiwa Joe’s right on the boat harbor for a custom lunch.

After lunch you would be transported by luxury vehicle back to Waimea Valley for a private guided hike to a waterfall with Hawaiian culture expert Hoku Haiku. Then back Turtle Bay for an exquisite seaside couples massage.

After some relaxation time at the spa being tended to hand and foot, you would enjoy a private sunset horseback ride to the beautiful, secluded Kawela Bay where a custom, catered dinner will be waiting along with live music by Na Hoku Hanohano and Grammy Award winner John Cruz.
