About the Tour

During this captivating, wraparound adventure, you will be swept off to the island’s most awe-inspiring landmarks and destinations, including the world-famous Hanauma Bay, the spouting “Blow Hole,” Pali Lookout and the sacred Kualoa Ranch nestled against the stunning Koolau Mountains.

The narrated Oahu circle tour begins at Diamond Head, then heads past the lavish beachfront residences of celebrities and moguls in Kahala. The trip continues east to Hanauma Bay, then stops at the Halona “Blow Hole,” where a natural volcanic lava tube shoots water to dramatic heights. A stop in Waimanalo will allow you to experience the small-town side of Oahu, then it’s time to be whisked off to enjoy sweeping views from the Pali Lookout. At the Byodo-In Temple, tucked in the Valley of the Temples, you will see a half-sized replica of Japan’s 450-year-old place of worship, then travel to the sacred Kualoa Ranch for a tram tour to the lush Kualoa Mountains. At the northern peak of the island, the tour cruises by the Laie Hawaii Mormon Temple and North Shore’s best surfing beaches, then ends at Dole Plantation, home to the famous Dole Whip ice cream. A perfect way to cap a sweet day!

Please note Hanauma Bay is a strict conservation area, on occasion when capacity is reached, we may not be allowed to stop.
