Today we split up for the first part of the day. Mike and Kailey had expressed interest in doing a shark cage dive, so just like with Paradise Helicopters, I suggested the dive operator we used back in 2012, North Shore Shark Encounters. We slept in a bit (which means maybe 6:30am when you're here) then went took a peek out front. There's a reef about 200 yards out from the beach in front of the house that makes the snorkeling here relatively safe and free from surprises. Our next door neighbors for the weekend were taking advantage of low tide and had hopped up on the reef to fish.
In 2012 when we were landing at HNL I saw what looked to be jet skis racing around below. I looked into it our first night at Turtle Bay and found a company called Aloha Jet Ski that promised new jet skis, fast jet skis and the longest rides on the island at 45 minutes. We booked an outing and had a great time. We repeated it in 2013 and I figured it would be even more fun with Mike and Kailey, so off we went.

After hitting 65+mph multiple times on the water and scaring the shit out of Min, we decided to head over to Nico's at Pier 38. I had heard great things about this place. I thought it was good but not great. There are places on the North Shore that do better for less .
We headed home to relax and catch another amazing sunset.
