This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Diamond Head Beach Park, 3300 Diamond Head Rd, Honolulu, Oahu, HI 96815
Our first point of interest takes us to beautiful Diamond Head Lookout, where you will be able to catch the end of the sunrise. The surf is almost always up at Diamond Head beach, so you can watch the surfers and see other Hawaiian Islands on a clear Day.
Please understand that this stop is not the Diamond Head State Monument that is inside of the crater. Another name for this location is the Amelia Earhart Lookout.
Duration: 20 minutes
Pass By: Kahala, Kahala, Oahu, Hawaii
After the Diamond Head Lookout, our second point of interest is the Gold Coast in Kahala. This area is like the Beverly Hills of Hawaii. You will see unbelievably large and luxurious properties and expansive estates that are owned by movie stars, celebrities, dignitaries, entrepreneurs, and of course doctors and lawyers. Definitely an interesting sight to take in.
Stop At: Halona Blowhole, Kalanianole Highway, Oahu, HI 96825
After we pass through Kahala, one of the most interesting points along our journey around Oahu is the powerful Halona Blowhole. Come and marvel at this geologic wonder as it shoots water into the heavens. As the waves crash into the rocks, the water moves underneath the rocks from underwater caves. Then the pressure builds up and it shoots the water as high as you can see. One of Oahu's geologic wonders!
Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Eternity Beach, Kalaniana'ole Highway, Honolulu, Oahu, HI 96815
Situated Near the blowhole in an incredibly beautiful corner of Oahu is a secret beach made famous in the movie "From Here to Eternity." This little cove is extraordinary, and one of our hidden gems. If you have some extra time while here on vacation, we recommend that you come back to spend the day... It's just about the most relaxing place on the planet!
Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Sandy Beach Park, 8801 Kalanianaole Hwy, Oahu, HI 96825
After the Blowhole and Eternity Beach, we'll come upon the body boarding, body surfing, skim boarding, and broken neck capital of the world... Sandy Beach. A famous hangout for locals, and just amazing playground, Sandy Beach is the perfect place to watch the experts play with expert waves... It's also a convenient bathroom stop for our tour!
Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Makapu'u Point, Kalaniana'ole Hwy turnout above Makapu'u Beach, Oahu, HI 96795
After we are pau with Sandy Beach, we will continue our journey and round the Eastern Corner of the Island of Oahu. As we do, you will get a glimpse at one of the most awe-inspiring views that you will ever see. The vista from the Makapu'u Point lookout is truly something to behold... The Bluest of Blues, the Greenest of Greens, ancient jagged lava rock surrounding yellow sand, and the Makapu'u lighthouse sitting stoic in the background. Someone pinch me...
Duration: 10 minutes
Pass By: Waimanalo Beach, 41 Kalanianaole Hwy, Waimanalo, Oahu, HI 96795-1299
After we round the corner of the Eastern tip of Oahu, we will come upon the quaint town of Waimanalo... There's London, Paris, Tokyo... And then there's Waimanalo... The exact opposite! It is here where we will find a beach park that is consistently ranked as one of the top beaches in the world. Also dubbed Sherwood Forest, what makes this beach so spectacular is the vast amount of Ironwood Trees that grow far out onto the beach in the sand. This creates a view of the forest meeting the ocean in spectacular fashion. Hands down the best camping spot on the island. Due to regulations, we can't get off the bus here, but we're gonna pull in just so you can see it from the bus.
Stop At: Mokoli’i Island, Oahu, HI 96744
Behold the legendary Mokoli'i Island! This picturesque island off the coast of Kaneohe Bay is a volcanic formation that is about as iconic with the Island of Oahu as Diamond Head. Mokoliʻi translates from Hawaiian as "little lizard." According to Hawaiian mythology, the island is the remains of a giant lizard's or dragon's tail that was chopped off and tossed into the ocean by the goddess Hiʻiaka. Definitely a picture that you need to have stored on your data card.
Duration: 15 minutes
Stop At: Tropical Farms Macadamia Nut Farm and Farm Tour, 49-227 Kamehameha Hwy Ste A, Kaneohe, Oahu, HI 96744-5165
After passing through Sherwood Forest Park, it's time to go to one our most popular stops... Why is it so popular? Free (all you can eat) Macadamia Nuts and Free (all you can drink) Kona Coffee of course! But it doesn't stop there, this is a bonafide macadamia nut plantation where you can crack open your own mac nuts, drink cold coconut juice right out of the coconut, mingle with Samoan Chiefs, and find that perfect, unique gift to bring home with you. This is always one of our guests favorite stops. *Note: Please leave a donation if you hit the coffee and nuts pretty hard. =)
Duration: 30 minutes
Pass By: Laie Hawaii Temple, 55-600 Naniloa Loop, Laie, Oahu, HI 96762-2202
After we have our fill over at the Macadamia Nut Plantation, it's time to get back on the road. The next stop we'll make is over to the amazingly beautiful Temple of the Church of Latter Day Saints in Laie, on the North Shore of Oahu. This city has a thriving Mormon community, and is home to one of the campuses of Brigham Young University, BYU Hawaii. This building is an amazing site to see because it's very architecturally significant. We won't be able to go inside, but we'll drive by so you can appreciate the view.
Stop At: Kahuku Farms, 56-800 Kamehameha Hwy, Kahuku, Oahu, HI 96731-2302
Mango, Pineapple, Coconut, Breadfruit, Dragon Fruit, Egg Fruit, Lilikoi, Honey Dew, Cantaloupe, Papaya, Apple Bananas, Ice Cream Bananas, Kiwis, Lychee, Rambutan, Sapote, Chi Chi, Jack Fruit... I could go on, but I think I would run out of character limit. The amazing Kahuku Land Fruit Stand has it all... Every fruit that you've ever heard of, and definitely every fruit that you've never heard off. Enjoy interacting with local farmers and tasting tropical fruits at this fun location.
Duration: 15 minutes
Stop At: Kahuku, Kahuku, Oahu, Hawaii
Okay cousins... Now it's time to Grind! We've had a very busy morning and everyone has worked up quite an appetite.Don't worry, we've got you covered with succulent Kahuku shrimp.

Duration: 40 minutes
Pass By: Haleiwa, Haleiwa, Oahu, Hawaii
We have now nourished our bodies, regained our energy stores, and it's time to make our way out through Haleiwa to go to our snorkeling site. But, along the way there, we will pass through the quaint surfing town of Haleiwa, the most famous city on the North Shore. Home to hundreds of restaurants, surf shops, arts and craft stores, and harbors, Haleiwa is one of the most original and unique towns in America... Much less Hawaii. Enjoy the sites of the town as we make our way to the Sea Turtle Snorkeling site at Haleiwa Alii Beach.
Stop At: Haleiwa Alii Beach Park, Halewa Rd, Haleiwa, Oahu, HI 96712
We have now come upon the highlight of our 16 Point Oahu Circle Island Tour... It's time to go snorkeling with the Sea Turtles. These curious creatures are docile and overwhelmingly cute. They spend their days hunting seaweed crops that are growing on the rocks and coral out here at this beautiful beach known as Alii Beach in Haleiwa. We will be providing all of the mask, snorkels, life jackets, lifeguards, and safety instruction that you need to have a super fun, super safe time. It's official... You've arrived... You're on Vacation, and this amazing snorkeling spot is the proof!

Stop At: 64-1550 Kamehameha Hwy Dole Plantation, Wahiawa, Oahu, HI 96786-2915
There's hardly any place more associated with Hawaii than the Dole Pineapple Plantation in Wahiawa, Oahu. It's also one of our guests favorite stops, and a fantastic way to begin to wrap up this adventurous day. Dole Plantation offers a wide variety of unique gifts and refreshments including fresh pineapple, and DoleWhip ice cream. This is a great spot to watch the Dole Train, grab some things to bring home, or send as gifts.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Green World Coffee Farms, 71 N Kamehameha Hwy # 101, Wahiawa, Oahu, HI 96786-1858
Whoooo Whoooo.... The train is now pulling out of the station at the Dole Plantation... And we're headed to our last stop right down the road.... The Green World Coffee Farms. As you can guess by the name, Green World grows boutique coffee and has many coffee trees growing on the property so you can get a look up close. They also have a great coffee shop so you can fuel up for the journey back to Waikiki. It's been a long day, and it's no coincidence that our last point of interest happens to be a spot where you'll find piping hot caffeine on tap. We hope you've enjoyed reading about our wonderful island experience and warmly invite you to come join us for an exciting day that you will never forget!
