Thanks! We were there at the end of October. We did drive to the North shore and those waves were really nice! Not sure what was going on but the streets were packed with cars and we saw some local TV crews out there too. As far as the boat trip goes we left the Marina and headed North past Electric beach and ended up at some small town. I can’t remember the name, but the boat captain told us it was the birth place of surfing on the island. Here’s a picture maybe you’ll recognize it? And yes the Sunsets were amazing at the resort. Pictures don’t do it justice. BYW, I’ve always noticed Oahu in your signature and have always been a bit jealous of you.
