Get your sea legs ready because we’re headed to Honolulu with surf photographer Zak Noyle, who has one very important rule — “get in the water every single day.” Dive face-to-face with sharks, taste the island’s best poke, and take a sunset surf on this episode of “Gatekeepers.” Here are the best things to do when you visit Honolulu.

    come on none of these were secret local spots what about stairway to heaven, mansions, spitting caves, makua cave, likelike falls. Theres so many killah places they could have went anyone can book a shark dive with no cage just google em he really didnt get a local experience. Should have had one true local show him around

    Canʻt believe the guide is from Hawaii. Why not take the host to the legendary places on O`ahu rather than these newer places that local people havenʻt really had time to become familiar with. Liliha Bakery for cocpuffs, Foodland for poke, Rainbow Drive In for a plate lunch, Matsumoto Shave Ice for shave ice and so many other places that provide a true "local" perspective of our food. Swimming with sharks is probably not a good idea, especially in murky water, and is not a traditional recreation like canoe paddling and surfing. Not a very good thing to promote.
