From Waikiki and Diamond Head along Oahu’s southeast shore to the world-famous surfing beaches of the North Shore, you’ll get to see an amazing variety of landscapes and all of the island’s top attractions.

Your journey begins in Waikiki, then heads past Diamond Head and the lavish beachfront residences in Kahala. The tour continues east to Hanauma Bay, Oahu’s best snorkel spot. You’ll also stop at the Halona Blowhole, where a natural underwater volcanic lava tube shoots water up into the air.

A stop in the small town of Waimanalo will allow you to experience the small-town side of Oahu. Continuing on, you’ll enjoy sweeping views from the Pali Lookout.

As you reach Oahu’s famed North Shore, you’ll cruise by some of the best big wave surfing beaches in the world. The last stop of the day is at the Dole Plantation in Oahu’s central plain, home to the famous Dole Whip ice cream and a great gift shop. All along the way you’ll learn about the culture and history of Oahu from your professional tour guide.
