Ohana Circle Island tour is a full day tour of Oahu. While visiting the hidden gems of Oahu you will be gorging on our Island fruits, snorkeling with our beloved Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, and have you embracing our world renowned beaches on an air conditioned 20 passenger shuttle.

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

Diamond Head

Our first stop brings us sweeping views of the south eastern coastline, with Diamond Head in the backdrop, this a great opportunity for pictures. The  location is Amelia Earhart Lookout, know for where bystanders gathered to watch Earhart make the first solo aviation journey from Hawaii to North America.

Halona Blowhole

Formed thousands of years ago by molten lava, Halona Blowhole is a lava tube thats run into the ocean, and when a wave hits, the water pressure thrusts water into the air, a true Hawaiian geyser. Nearby is a small beach cove, Cockroach Cove, where the Honu (Green sea turtles) are known to rest.

Makapuu Point

A sweeping view of Oahu’s southeastern shoreline – with tall sea cliffs guarded by Makapuu Point light house, an azure blue ocean, and rabbit island in the distance.

Macadamia nut Farm with Kona coffee samplings

After a beautiful scenic drive along Oahu’s coastline, we arrive at Tropical Farms which offers delicious coffee, chocolates and Macadamia nut treats! They also sell gift baskets and other souvenirs, a great place to get gifts for anyone back home.

Chinaman’s Hat and Kualoa Mountain Range

Chinaman’s Hat, also known as Mokolii, is nestled right next to the Kualoa Mountain range, known for its dramatic landscape filmed in  the movie Jurassic Park. The island has earned the nickname Chinaman’s Hat from its resemblance to the straw hats that the Chinese immigrants wore.

North Shore Shrimp Stands for lunch

Italy is famous for pasta, Mexico has its tacos, and the North Shore has their famous Garlic Shrimp. Farmed fresh and sautéed in large pans daily, the North Shore Shrimp trucks do not disappoint when it comes to their shrimp delicacies. Other non shell fish food options available. Please bring money for lunch.

Tropical Fruit Stands

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

 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 lets 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

The Green Sea Turtles come out to bask in the sun, and offer visitors a rare chance to see them in person. Snorkel gear is provided if one wishes to go for a swim at no extra cost.  Time at the beach is 90 minutes.

The Street brings a much needed social foodie scene to Waikiki

The Street in the new International Market Place brings a much needed social foodie scene to the restaurant chain industry that currently dominates the gastronomic scene in Waikiki.  At first, the International Market Place appeared to be an oversaturated Sunglass Hut, Footlocker, Gucci infested Waikiki shopaholic addicted mess. However, with time, interesting cafes and bars have started to sprout up in and around the Market Place. The Street opened up two weeks ago and is a very hip food court where one can order a Manhattan with their pizza, cookies with their Calamari salad, or possibly a side of meatballs to compliment their ramen.   In regards to beverages, two bars are located within the food court along with a cafe if you feel like getting caffeinated instead of buzzed. The variety of options are endless here and the music with occasional DJ provides a great place to sit back and mingle with tourists and locals alike.  This will become the place to be in Waikiki before you head out for a night of partying or after a long day of cruising on the beach.

Cool new cafe in the heart of Waikiki – Kona Coffee Purveyors

Present day Waikiki lacks one thing that all major tourist vacation destinations offer, as well as just cities in general and that’s cafes where you can order a coffee, sit outside and just people watch. The new International Market Place breaks the mold and gives us Kona Coffee Purveyors, the sit down pastry and coffee stop Waikiki desperately needs. The coffee is almost as good as it’s pastries, well in my opinion that is. So be it before you jump on Ohana Circle Island Tour or after, stop by Kona Coffee Purveyors to grab a hot coffee and a chocolate croissant. Make sure to have someone hold you a seat outside because they go fast!Kona Coffee Purveyors | Waikiki Hawaii | Ohana Circle Island Tour - 808-657-2178Grab a coffee after your long Oahu full day tour with Ohana Circle Island Tour at the Kona Coffee PurveyorsKona Coffee Purveyors Waikiki | International Market Place | Oahu Island Tour

Pai’s Deli in Waikiki

Pai’s Deli is a great place to grab a healthy but to eat at a very reasonable price in Waikiki.
