When a person dreams of Hawaii, most likely an image of O’ahu comes to mind. While it isn’t the largest island in the chain, it is the most densely populated. O’ahu is home to Honolulu, the capital of the state. It is also home some of the most iconic images of Hawaii such as Diamond Head, Waikiki, Honolulu, the Bonzai Pipeline, and the Polynesian Cultural Center. There is certainly enough to do on this one island alone. Our O’ahu day tours are designed to immerse you in the culture and beauty that surrounds this island.

North Shore History and Scenic Tour
The best of Oahu is arguably the North Shore. With epic waves and incredible lush landscape your knowledgeable local guide will help bring out the best of this beautiful coastline. This is a must see with powerful views that are not found anywhere else in the world.
Driving over the Ko’olau Mountains you can see the ancient ridges and spines that have created beautiful valleys and stunning mountain vistas. Find yourself at the Valley of the Temples. The picturesque Byodo-In Temple sits conveniently against abundant green cliffs. Walk the temple grounds, hear stories about Buddha, ring the sacred bell for good luck, and feed the exquisite Koi. Sometimes just sitting and deep personal reflection brings out that one of a kind a-ha moment that puts life into perspective. Next take a ride along the shore and watch for impressive sites and even the rare Hawaiian monk seals. This is one of the most amazing scenic routes in Hawaii. You can jump the 30-foot plunge off the cliff side (for excellent swimmers). This wild and rugged coastline is blessed with excellent beaches and some of the best surfing in the world.
Stop at one of the popular shrimp stands and enjoy a delicious lunch plate. Stop and enjoy two world-class beaches. One is popular due to the picturesque views of sunset and the other for the amazing world-class surfing. Winter waves are the strongest and often the Bonzai Pipeline is in full swing.

We start this tour at the “Pali Lookout.” It is the site of one of Hawaii’s most devastating battles. Hundreds of warriors died in 1795 as King Kamehameha won the struggle that finally united Oahu under his rule. Next, enjoy a 2 ½ mile moderate hike to a somewhat remote waterfall called the Maunawili Falls. This beautiful escape boasts of varied vegetation which includes both sacred native plants and fun items to pick and eat. Watch for ti leaves, mountain apples, guava, koa and ohia trees can be seen from the trail.
You may get your shoes a little muddy because you will be crossing over small streams and rain often visits this area overnight. This is a beautiful spot to see the Windward side of Kailua. After spending some time here, the local guide will take you to a delicious food truck and park to eat lunch. Another option is Auntie Helena’s kitchen for Hawaiian and local food.
Animal and Sea Life Day Tour
Animal-loving kids will enjoy our zoo and sea life Park tour. We will start by taking you and your children to experience Sea Life Park in Waimanalo, Hawaii. Although it is called the Sea Life Park, there is much more here than just ocean critters. Go from looking at the marine mammals that we’re all familiar with, and then enjoy the bird sanctuary. Your children can see sea life up close, watch them in the shows, and talk with trainers.
There is a shark cave, a Green Sea Turtle exhibit, penguins, and more! This will be both fun and educational. Next, we will be heading to more animal encounters where they will not only be able to learn about the animals they are seeing, but they can touch them, too! And what better way to end this exciting adventure in Hawaii than by going to a local Shave Ice stand? Shave Ice (called snow cones on the mainland) is a visitor favorite treat and a refreshing way to cool off on a warm Hawaiian afternoon.
Tons of animals! There will be opportunities to touch some of the animals at the sea life park, and plenty more animals to observe. There are shows at the sea life park where you can see silly sea lions perform with the trainers, watch and learn how smart dolphins are, and even see stingrays being trained! We will get to enjoy the beautiful weather that Hawaii has to offer, see the breathtaking life that is in our oceans, and then end the day with a delicious treat!
