Overview
Circle most of the island of Oahu on a full-day tour by minibus limited to 20 passengers, a smaller group than typical island coach tours. With an informative guide, you’ll make about a dozen stops, including the chance to see Hawaiian green sea turtles in their natural habitat during an hour of snorkeling on Oahu’s North Shore. Get a comprehensive overview of top attractions such as Diamond Head, Makapu’u Beach, Halona Blowhole and the Dole Plantation. Hotel pickup and drop-off in Waikiki is included.

Highlights

  • Ideal overview of Oahu for first-time visitors 
  • Stop to snorkel with turtles and optionally paddle board or kayak
  • Guide tells you facts about Oahu you might miss on your own
What to Expect
Your Oahu Grand Circle tour begins with pickup from your Waikiki hotel. Step on board your minibus to join your guide and group of 20 people or fewer. First, drive to Diamond Head and stop to snap a photo at the lookout. The popular Halona Blowhole is next, where you see ocean waves crash into a lava tube and spray water up to 50 feet (15 meters) in the air. Then, pass by pristine beaches and historic lighthouses on your way to Makapu’u Beach, Waimanalo Beach Park, and Sunset Beach. Stretch your legs at Tsue Farm and optionally try a traditional Hawaiian lunch or rent a kayak or paddleboard to explore the Anahulu River (own expense). Next, take a quick snorkel at a spot known for its sea turtles. Shower and change, and then visit your final stop at the Dole Plantation. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in Waikiki.

We had a great tour guide, Mario, who was very knowledgeable about Oahu, the Hawaiian culture and the sights along the way. The snorkeling wasn't great due to rough waters but the rest of the tour was great. We loved the Dole plantation stop.
