Adventure With A Local: Half Circle Island Tour

Lean about Hawaii’s history, biodiversity, and culture on this half-day island tour by Jeep. Designed for people who want to see Oahu through the eyes of a local, this small-group tour introduces you to local secrets and island highlights such as Hanauma Bay, Lanai Lookout, and more. Swim in the ocean if you wish and snap photos of panoramic views as you get to know the island with a local.

What to Expect

Meet your guide at your hotel at 9am and begin your tour without having to worry about logistics.

Your trip includes a stop at Hanauma Bay, a marine sanctuary, and Lanai Lookout for views of other Hawaiian Islands.

Your tour continues with a visit to Halona Blowhole and Beach Cove, a naturally occurring lava tube formed in volcanic rock that shoots water into the sky like a geyser.

Also on the itinerary is a visit to Makapu’u Lookout for views of Rabbit Island and the Mokulua Islands.

Next, explore Oahu’s longest continuous stretch of white sand at Waimanalo Beach, take a dip in the Pacific if you wish and then make your way back to Waikiki with a final stop at the Pali Lookout before returning to your hotel.

Hi Helene. I cannot answer for sure but they are a very friendly crew and I would call direct to let them know you are a single traveller and that you could join another group if that's ok.
