For our honeymoon, we decided to splurge and book a private tour of the North Shore. We usually don't go for guided tours, but after reading about the North Shore Adventure Day, we decided to give it a shot. We're thrilled we did! Not only did we have the chance to swim in a waterfall, but we also tried stand-up paddleboarding and saw so many turtles while paddling. This was definitely the highlight of our vacation!
