Restrictions: If you want to swim at places without lifeguards, there is an additional $100 life guard fee (which gets you a driver for the day who is also a certified water safety guide). Hanauma Bay and Waimea Falls have lifeguards on site, and they don't need to pay the additional fee. Kayak and SUP rental also don't need the fee for self guided, but there is a fee if you want the driver/certified lifeguard to be doing the activity with you.
What to Wear: This will vary widely based upon the places you want to go and the things you want to do.

Kevin's Activity Tips:
As Hawaii emerges from the Covid pandemic one of the long-lasting impacts is the desire by vacationers to do more private excursions and less "big bus" tours. As a result the services provided by Halia Tours are really in demand these days. If you want to arrange a private event for just your family or small group, this REALLY is something that needs to be planned ahead of time. You can't wait until you arrive in Hawaii and decide you want to hire a private guide and vehicle for the day and expect it to be available. Please PLEASE arrange this now ... well ahead of your vacation dates!
We really like the option they give by offering a $100 discount off the price of a tour by building an hour or so of "community service" into your day. This is the future of sustainable tourism ... instead of trampling on a place with no concern for the locals, show a sense of caring and contribution when you travel somewhere! Nice touch!!!
