Upon booking, customers will be automatically assigned the pickup location based on their hotel in Waikiki. A knowledgeable local guide will be there to assist and guide you, ensuring you are well-prepared for a day filled with exploration.
  • Diamond Head – Amelia Earhart Lookout an Aviators Vista
    Our initial stop takes us to an elevated viewpoint nestled on the eastern slopes of the renowned Diamond Head Volcano in Waikiki. This vantage point provides an excellent opportunity to capture stunning photographs of Oahu’s southeastern coastline, offering panoramic views that extend to notable landmarks such as Hanauma Bay and, on clear days, even as far as Maui. Familiarly referred to as the Aviator’s Vista, this location carries historical significance as the site where spectators gathered to witness Amelia Earhart embark on her pioneering first solo aviation journey from Hawaii to North America.
  • Halona Blowhole
    Marvel at the natural wonder created by molten lava tubes from Oahu’s Koko Head crater at the Halona Blowhole. This unique formation, resulting from volcanic eruptions, sends water shooting through a narrow opening in the lava tube, creating a captivating Hawaiian geyser when the surf is just right.
  • Makapu’u Point
  • Embarking on the path to Oahu’s windward side, prepare to be captivated by the breathtaking drama of Waimanalo’s sea cliffs at Makapu’u Point. Let the deep sapphire waters unfold before your eyes, and as you gaze upon the seascape, behold the allure of Oahu’s Manana Island, famously named Rabbit Island for its enchanting contours resembling a whimsical rabbit against the backdrop of the ocean’s indigo expanse.

  • Chinaman’s Hat and Kualoa Valley Mountain Range
    Immerse yourself in the scenic wonders of Chinaman’s Hat, or Mokoli’i, harmoniously framed by the majestic Kualoa Valley Mountain range. Renowned for its cinematic splendor showcased in iconic films like Jurassic Park, this island earned its moniker from the straw hats worn by Chinese immigrants toiling in Oahu’s sugar plantations during the early 1900s. As you absorb the panoramic beauty, envision the historical tapestry woven into this landscape and appreciate the island’s unique blend of natural allure and cultural history.
  • Pali Lookout
    Perched atop the rugged cliffs of the Ko’olau Range on Oahu, the Pali Lookout offers visitors breathtaking panoramic views of the island’s windward side. Known for its historical significance in the Battle of Nu’uanu, where King Kamehameha I secured his victory in uniting the Hawaiian Islands, the lookout provides a glimpse into both natural beauty and rich cultural heritage. With strong winds often sweeping through the area, it’s a must-visit destination for those seeking awe-inspiring vistas and a sense of Hawaiian history.

It was so cool to have the option to customize what we wanted to do. The waterfall hike here was incredible and pairing it with a snorkeling tour afterwords was a wonderful way that we could cool down after the hiking. I highly recommend booking with these guys if you’re on the North Shore.

This tour was amazing, we were able to do activities all day we went on a tour around the island and we did snorkel in the marine reserve!

This was a great adventure. We saw almost the entire island and we visited the pineapple dole plantation-they had a killer ice cream. My kid had a great time doing snorkeling for the first time!
