What you'll do

This is a 6 hour tour that will take you first to the Pink Pill Box hike! The hike is about 1 hour and a half up and down (Less than 2 mile hike) and this includes the time for pictures and rest. (This intermediate hike requires you to be in somewhat decent shape but I will help you the whole way). Then our second stop is the amazing Mermaid Grotto. We will make our way down to the grotto and then use your best mermaid pose for pictures! (You will probably get wet as waves come into the grotto, can swim in the grotto, so sandals or water shoes recommended). Next we go to explore electric beach. Here we will check out the beautiful ocean views and take pictures as we walk along the old Hawaiian Railway. Lastly, we will take you for a local meal spot (Has one of the best loco mocos on the island! And great acai bowls) and can get dessert (Haupia ice cream next door afterwards).
* Meals are not included in the tour price. (Meals Paid Separately, credit card accepted)
*Water shoes recommended for Mermaid Grotto but can be done in sandals.
* Even beginner hikers can do this hike, I will give you safety tips before we start the hike.
* Pictures I take with my gopro are included and can take picutres with your phone or camera.

I have lived and explored Oahu for many years. I started hiking the island when I moved here and I just can't stop exploring. I started taking people on hikes and I realized I loved sharing my passion with everyone. I started Hawaii Mini Tours as a way to take tourists to places that they wouldn't normally go. All my tours, I have done many times and I am confident everyone will enjoy them.

It Was great!! Took my 7 year old daughter with me. She loved the hike up the mountain and the Mermaids Cove. Eric was attentive to her safety, assisted her when needed. Took great pictures in the sea cavern and a full day’s schedule! It was by far a great experience!

The west side tour exceeded our expectations! We initially stumbled upon Erick’s east side tour and wanted to participate in that but it was full. We saw he also offered this one and it definitely did not disappoint! Erick is so friendly and knowledgeable about the area. This tour is new but it is so worth and beautiful. Erick is wonderful at taking pictures as well! He took 800+ for me and my partner (I know, WOW!) Overall, I would highly recommend this tour. The hike was manageable yet challenging for someone who is a beginner and the views were stellar. Not to mention the Loco moco and ice cream spot we went to for lunch were so good, yum!! Super worth it and I can’t wait to take his east side tour sometime in the future :)

Must do while in Oahu! Erick was very professional, friendly, informative, and safe. I wanted to do his East Shore tour he offers in addition to this one but it was sold out, and now I understand why. If you’re a big photo person like myself, you will leave with plenty of great shots. By the end of the tour I was wishing it wouldn’t end. Thanks Erick!

This tour was absolutely amazing! Erik was so patient and helpful and passionate about the places we went. It was as if a friend was taking me to their favorite spots! He was so encouraging and super excited about the photography as well! The photographs were so beautiful! I can't wait to do his east side tour today!

This was our second adventure with Erick! This tour was just as breathtaking, with gorgeous views of the west coast of the island. Erick picked us up from our AirBnB and drove us to the mermaid caves which were super fun! The hike was short and sweet and the views at the top were amazing. Erick was kind enough to take a bunch of pictures with his GoPro which he shared with us later that day. We enjoyed food from a local spot which we wouldn’t have been able to find our own. I definitely recommend this tour if you’re staying around Honolulu and want to explore local spots without the hassle of renting a car or doing any research yourself!
