Throughout the day as we circle Oahu, we will show you several wonderful island locations known to locals and visitors such as Kualoa Ranch, the Tropical Macadamia Nut Farm, and Dole Plantation. Our guides will introduce you to some of the most delicious stops along the North Shore for some fresh tropical fruits and also for lunch with some “ono” seafood dishes. (Vegetarian options available). The Island of Oahu offers a lot to explore and see, join us for a taste test as we leave the metropolis of Waikiki and drive through the country side of the island. Much of our route will take us along Oahu’s amazing coastline and it is a very beautiful scenic drive.

Enjoy a midday extended break at the beach where you can snorkel, just relax on the beach, or explore and see if you find any turtles. Enjoy a lunch break on the North Shore of Oahu at a beautiful location along the Haleiwa River. Public Restrooms and Beach Showers are available at your lunch stop and the beach we go snorkeling at so you can change into swimwear and rinse off. Enjoy an hour of snorkeling on a reef full of life on Oahu’s North Shore and see what fish you will spy along with turtles.
