    Itinerary:

    Waikiki Pickup (7:15 a.m.)

    Our semi-private shuttle will arrive at 7 am 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 Lookout

    Our first stop brings us sweeping views of the southeastern 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.

    Tropical Farms Hawaiian Coffee and Macadamia Nut Sampling

    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. This is a great place to get gifts for anyone back home.

    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 lighthouse, an azure blue ocean, and rabbit island in the distance.

    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 are 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 Beaches

    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 the shore.

    Hawaii Green Sea Turtle spotting with an 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.

    Dole Pineapple Plantation

    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 (3:30)

    After a day of activities and fun, we return to Waikiki, just in time to make plans for the night. Mahalo!
