I highly recommend booking an exertion with Mahina to anyone who is interested in experiencing the authentic Oahu. Our guide Evan made the day fun and exciting (we started the day cliff jumping) while at the same time being accommodating to us. He shared some history and culture of the island and showed us some awesome local spots that we would not have otherwise known about or experienced. He also took pictures throughout the day capturing memories to share with friends and family.

I'm a local who grew up in Honolulu and my family and I did a mini-staycation on the North Shore. We reached out to Ryan, the owner of Mahina, and made sure he could create a unique tour for us. Our group spanned ages from 12 to 80 years old and Ryan took us to places that worked for all. I kept saying, "I can't believe I've never been here before!". The places had a great variety of ocean views, hiking through flora/fauna and a spot with cultural significance. While the scenic spots were fantastic, it was really Ryan's personality that made it all work. He's so easy going, a great listener and very knowledgeable about history, plants, local traditions, animals, etc. There's no doubt we'll be booking with him again!

Our day with Mahina Hawaii was the best of our entire trip. We asked to do the Ka’au Crater hike, which was an intense 6-and-a-half hour hike up and around the ridge of a crater. They were very flexible with how we wanted our day to be structured, and even let us start an extra hour earlier so we’d have more time. Our guides were Ryan and Chace, and they were both so helpful, funny and knowledgeable. As we hiked, they’d point out edible or interesting plants to us like strawberry guava, blue vervain, and kahili ginger. We got to taste the edible ones. The entire hike was incredible and the view from the top was especially stunning. They got us lots of pictures and amazing drone footage too. We felt like we were in good hands the whole way—even those of us who’d never hiked before made it around the entire loop. I would highly recommend Mahina Hawaii for your trip. I’m definitely going to have to contact them again if I ever get a chance to come back to Hawaii.

I found Mahina Hawaii with an amazing review on a YouTube video and rushed to their website to book a half-day adventure for our upcoming vacation that took place in February.
Before for we even left for our trip, Ryan was extremely accommodating! The calendar was blocked off and I wasn't sure we would be able to book an adventure. I was able to talk to Ryan on the phone extensively about what we already had plans to do and what the type of adventure we were looking for. Ryan was able to make sure that we got the experience we desired and set us up to meet with our guide Kaya!
Kaya was amazing and made sure we had everything we needed for our adventure! We went on an amazing pillbox hike and she pointed out various indigenous plants along the trail. We seen spectacular views and explored a few bunkers! We talked the entire time and she was very personable and humble. Kaya took several candid pictures of me and my fiancé, which was perfect because he has a tendency to avoid his photo being taken. Afterwards we took surf lessons from Kaya and she was clear in her instructions and held space for us to have a ton of fun! If I lived in Oahu I could definitely see myself being close friends with her!
I only have two regrets... not booking the full day adventure and not taking some pictures with Kaya!
I can't wait to come back!!!!

We wanted to get away from
Tourist traps in O’ahu which is what led us to find Mahina Hawaii. Ryan planned the perfect day for our family of 4 - two 50 year olds and a 12 and 8 year old. He picked us up from Aulani and gave us a personal tour of the island. We played on a beach and in the water, he took us hiking among Banyan trees, we jumped from a high ridge into a stream under a waterfall, we hit food trucks in Haleiwa Town and we went Stand Up Paddleboarding in a secluded river. It was the best day of our vacation by far. We would never THINK of coming to Hawaii again and not calling Ryan. He was great with our kids, thoughtful and patient and so encouraging. My kids left his presence feeling like rock stars. Worth every penny. Do yourself a favor and book two days.

My husband and I booked a full day retreat for our anniversary. Our guide, Evan, was awesome.. we had a blast; snorkeling, hiking, paddle boarding and adventuring. I absolutely recommend using Mahina Hawaii as a way to truly enjoy Hawaii in its natural state. I also recommend booking this early in your stay.. it will change the way you look at the island for the rest of your time there. I LOVED how we were encouraged to let our guide take pictures and video for us so we could focus on the experience. I could go on and on but the bottom line is.. highly recommend!

Snorkeling with Ryan and Evan at electric beach was one of the highlights of our trip. These guys were fun, friendly and upbeat. We felt safe having them lead us in an area we were unfamiliar with. We saw a Hawaiian monk seal, turtles and fish, oh and the Buddha statue. I would highly recommend spending the money if you are new to ocean swimming and snorkeling and want to go somewhere that may be above your league. My kids said this excursion with Ryan was their favorite part of our vacation.

Ryan was the best! We asked for a tour of all the most scenic spots on Oahu and he definitely delivered, taking us to tons of unique places we would have never known about or found on our own. He caters each tour to your skill level, so we told him we didn’t want anything too crazy in terms of hikes and he picked out the right ones for us. He’s also great at taking photos, recommending food places to go to as well as knowing so much about the island in general. He also picks you up and drives you around himself, it’s definitely well worth the price! Next time we’re back in Oahu we will be scheduling more tours with Mahina Hawaii!

This is one of the best days we’ve had on vacation. The tour guide catered the experience to our needs and was very helpful in the entire planning process. We had grandparents and very young children and he helped find something for everyone, responded quickly to questions and helped coordinate the whole day. This was such an amazing and intimate excursion like we have never had before and completely unique. Something our family will remember forever. I’ll definitely be reaching out next time we visit Oahu.

We had the BEST two days with Ryan and Mahina Hawaii. We gave Ryan an idea of what we would like to do with our three children (20,17, and 15) and he filled our two days with snorkeling, hiking, surfing, cliff jumping, and kayaking. He took us to places we would have never been able to find on our own and showed us what Oahu was all about outside of Waikiki. At the end of each day he air dropped us the pictures, videos, and drone footage he took for us to help us remember the incredible experiences! I highly recommend Mahina Hawaii and if you are considering booking, do it!!!!
