Activity Company: Hawaii Turtle Tours


  • Waikiki Pickup (7:20 AM – 8:00 AM)

Our shuttle will arrive at 7:20 AM 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 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 southeastern 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

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

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 shape.

  • 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 with macadamia nut and delicious Kona coffee tastings, along with very tempting Hawaiian chocolates amongst other treats.

  • 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 1900s.

  • Famous North Shore Shrimp Lunch on Local Hawaiian Farm

Our guide will walk you through a local taro patch on a farm located at the base of the Koʻolau Mountain Range. Get a first-hand look at how ancient Hawaiian agriculture practices live on and how to this day still manage to provide for local families to live off the land using the techniques and traditions passed down through generations. We also eat lunch at the farm. The farm has a restaurant that can prepare all of the famous North Shore delicacies. Garlic Shrimp, Coconut Shrimp, and Kalua Pork are just some of the mouth-watering plates available for lunch. Vegetarian options are available. Please bring cash for lunch.

  • Tropical Fruit Stands

After lunch, we make a stop at North Shore tropical fruit stands, which offer 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.

  • Hawaii Green Sea Turtle Beach Snorkeling

Hono is the Hawaiian name for our beloved Green Sea Turtles. Our Honu is 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 spend 90 minutes hoping to spot this incredible occurrence and we will also provide snorkeling gear so guests can go for a swim and hopefully snorkel alongside a green sea turtle as well. Snorkel Gear is included in the price of the tour. Please alert your guest to bring sunscreen and a towel.

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.

I had seen the turtles in this area on television before and I wanted to learn more. This tour puts you in the best place to see tours and to learn more about the species. Way better than any documentary!

I thought the green sea turtles are really small like a few inches but we saw a lot of big ones like 4 feet long! Super amazing!
