Itinerary:

Waikiki Pickup

Waikiki Pickup (7:00 - 7:20 a.m.)

Our semi private shuttle will arrive at 7am for pick up in Waikiki with a local guide to help you prepare for a day of exploring the island of Oahu. Pick up times vary by hotel and will be automatically assigned when you input your information into our online booking platform.

Diamond Head

Diamond Head Lookout

The first lookout we visit is an elevated view perched on the eastern side of Waikiki’s famous Diamond Head Volcano. This lookout grants us a great opportunity for pictures of the south eastern coastline of Oahu, with notable sights as far as Hanauma bay and Maui on a clear day. The location is more formally known as Amelia Earhart Lookout, known for where bystanders gathered to watch Earhart make her first solo aviation journey from Hawaii to North America.

Halona Blowhole

Halona Blowhole

Molten lava tubes from volcanic eruptions that occurred from Oahu’s Koko Head crater formed the natural occurrence known as the Halona Blowhole. This lava tube extends into the ocean with a very narrow opening at the top, and when the surf is just right, water pressure builds up within the lava tube and erupts through the narrow opening creating a special Hawaiian geyser for your viewing pleasure.

Makapuu Point

Makapu’u Point

Witness Waimanalo’s dramatic sea cliffs as we turn into Oahu’s windward side as we begin our journey to the North Shore of Oahu. Look off into the azure blue waters of the bay and you will see Oahu’s famous Manana Island also known as Rabbit island due to its rabbit-like shape.

Byodo In Temple

Built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first Japanese immigrants to Hawaiʻi, the temple grounds are nestled on the foothills of Ko'olau Mountains and surrounded by a lush Hawaiian landscape which is home to wild peacocks and hundreds of Japanese koi carp. The beautiful grounds instill an out of body experience via a large reflecting pond, meditation niches, and small waterfalls. Admission included into the price of the tour.

Macadamia nut Farm with Kona coffee samplings

Hawaiian Coffee and Macadamia Nut Tastings

After a beautiful drive along Oahu’s eastern coastline, our next stop is a local shop that finds itself tucked away under aged Banyan trees. This location provides macadamia nut and delicious Kona coffee tastings amongst other treats like tempting Hawaiian chocolates.

Chinaman’s Hat and Kualoa Mountain Range

Chinaman’s Hat and Kualoa Valley Mountain Range

Chinaman’s Hat, also known as Mokolii, is nestled right next to the Kualoa Valley Mountain range. This location is known for its dramatic landscape filmed in a number of Hollywood movies; most notably and fan favorite Jurassic Park. The island has earned the nickname Chinaman’s Hat from its resemblance to the straw hats that the Chinese immigrants wore when working Oahu’s sugar plantations during the early 1900’s.

Famous North Shore Shrimp Lunch at Local Hawaiian Restaurant

We break for lunch at a local restaurant where you can have your pick of either a famous North Shore Garlic Shrimp plate or other local delicacies. Non-Shellfish and Vegetarian options are available. Please bring cash for lunch.

Tropical Fruit Stands

Tropical Fruit Stands

After lunch we make a stop at a North Shore tropical fruit stand which offers ice cold coconuts to drink from, fresh mangos, and other tropical treats.

North Shore Sunset Beach

North Shore Sunset Beach

A change of pace from the crowded beaches of Waikiki, the infamous Sunset Beach on the North Shore offers tranquility and is the epitome of a beautiful Hawaiian Beach. However don’t let the summer months fool you, during the winter months, swells of 30 to 40 feet can be seen from the safe confines of shore.

Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle spotting with the option to snorkel

Hawaii Green Sea Turtle Spotting

Hono is the Hawaiian name for our beloved Green Sea Turtles. Our Honu are very Hawaiian in that they love to lay on the sand and bask under the warm sun. We take you to a beach where we hope to spot this incredible occurrence.

Dole Pineapple Plantation

Dole Pineapple plantation

A historic pineapple plantation home to pineapple magnets, pineapple t-shirts, pineapple keychains and most importantly pineapple ice cream aka Dole Whip!! A great way to end the day and get some pineapple themed souvenirs for your friends and family back home.

Waikiki Return

Waikiki Return (3:30 - 4:00)

    Great circle island tour!

    This was our first trip to Hawaii. We had a lot of places we want to go, but we didn’t have enough time to go everywhere by ourselves. This amazing tour made our dream come true. They took us a lot of places around Oahu for one day, and we enjoyed beautiful views, snorkeling, and Hawaiian food. I highly recommend it for people who visit Hawaii first time!
