When a person hears about big waves, they think about the North Shore of the Oahu. Home of the seven-mile miracle. The world’s most famous seven-mile stretch of coastline, home to over thirty world-class waves that have graced the covers of magazines and made their way into movies for decades. Sunset Beach, Pipeline, and Waimea Bay are a few names that come to mind. Thousands fly here to the North Shore’s big waves every winter to test their skills against the massive swells that pound the north shore every winter season. Our winter season starts in November and extends through the end of April. Some of the waves break close to the shore, where viewing them from the beach can be awesome! But, most break further out where it makes it hard to spectate to really see what’s going on, much less feel the immense energy generated hundreds of miles away off in the Bering Sea that the Pacific Ocean delivers here. As these storms off Japan’s northern coast, east coast of Russia, and Bearing sea intensifies, the swells that are produced increase to the size of small mountains that pound the outer reefs of the North Shore. These outer reefs reached by extremely brave, highly-skilled, men and women by boat and jet ski, once only seen and experienced by photography and video for us mere mortals can now be experienced up and close on our super safe, twin-engine, RIB (rigid inflatable bottom) boat, Banzai!
Let Banzai Adventure’s experienced Captain and water person take you on a 1 hour plus big wave adventure to Oahu’s North Shore outer reefs for an unforgettable experience and feel the energy and see these jaw-dropping waves from the safety of Banzai. As you go up the swells that can reach 50 feet in height and down the backside of these sea monsters feeling that immense energy you will soon discover that these men and women that ride waves aren’t only brave and skilled but completely insane! What a sight to behold! The spray of the waves as they detonate on the reef, the sound, the feeling of your heart sinking as Banzai safely slides down the swells really has no words to explain! You have to go to know. Or for those in the surfing world, the saying goes,” only a surfer knows the feeling”! That feeling is what we want to share with you. It’s an experience that we can share with you, your friends, and your family. This private tour allows up to six people in your group and will be one of the highlights of your vacation. The North Shore big waves are dependent on winter storms so if you’re here during that time, don’t miss your opportunity! Our experienced private North Shore Tour Captain will take you to the best spots to see the biggest waves possible of the swell for the time you’re with us. You won’t have to guess and wonder from the shore what you’re seeing as you start to try to get a glimpse past the breaking waves through the walls of white water. We will take you right to them, from the channel, up close and tell you about the different names of these breaks, Swell direction, and sizes. You won’t have to deal with traffic or frustrating parking situation. We leave right from Oahu’s North Shore, Haleiwa Harbor where there is plenty of free parking. Our United States Coast Guard licensed Oahu boat tour Captain will go over all the safety features of our RIB, Banzai before departure. There’s a safe shaded seat for everyone on board. So come and enjoy this exhilarating experience today!
