Know More about this tour

This comprehensive half-day North Shore tour begins with a drive over the Ko'olau Mountains to the windward side of the island. Your first stop is the fabled Valley of the Temples to visit the picturesque Byodo Temple, located at the base of stunning lush green cliffs. You'll then take a drive along the scenic shores of Kahana Bay, a great location to observe native plant and seabird species.

Continuing north to Kahuku, you will visit several shrimp farms to see endangered wetland birds, including the black-neck stilt, Hawaiian coot and moorhen. You will then have lunch at a popular Shrimp stand where you will be served your choice of different sauteed shrimp plates (chicken, hamburger and veggie options also available) with steaming rice. 

Next stop is world-famous Sunset Beach and Banzai Pipeline, where incredible waves thrill spectators and surfers alike, especially between November and April. Following the stunning coastline of legendary Waimea Bay we stop at a well-known basking and feeding ground to look for wild Green Sea Turtles before traveling south where you'll arrive at the colorful and historic village of Haleiwa, home to surfers, artists, and craftspeople. After passing extensive pineapple fields we arrive at our last stop, the historic Dole Plantation.

  • We had a wonderful day with Paul. We had a very small group of 3, which was great, seemed more personal. What a great day and very informative, Paul was determined for us to find Green sea Turtles, which he found and we saw. Paul is a credit to your company! Thanks again for a wonderful tour

  • Fantastic tour - picture postcard photos and great if you only have a few days on Oahu. Only thing that would have given it 5 stars would be a stop at the cute little town for some shopping instead of taking 45 minutes at the shrimp lunch stop!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our tour! The Tour guide was exceptional and displayed a vast knowledge and historical overview of Hawaiian history, geography and ecology- he was exceptionally great! Despite the rain the beach stops of eastward coast of Kualoa, North Shore and Byodo-in Temple were amazing!

  • we really enjoyed their service.

  • This is a great way to see parts of the island that one may not otherwise travel to. The guide was very knowledgeable and an excellent driver. However 6 hours or so, non-stop listening to that strident voice detailing all sorts of minutiae, apart from the times we got off the bus proved somewhat of a trial. Shrimp lunch was delicious though having to wait until nearly 3pm was a bit long. Overall I would recommend this if you don't mind being lectured the whole way round.

  • I really enjoyed the entire tour. Ken was outstanding as our guide and host. For a variety of reasons, the group, consisting of Texans, Kansans, Pennsylvanians,Albertans, French and Australians developed a unique camaraderie. The shrimp lunch was deeelish Fun time.

  • Good tour if you dont want an active day, but I woul have liked an opportunity to swim. Guide was very good.

  • Great way to see most of Oahu. Ken took us on the tour, and was full of information and laughs! We were lucky and got to see 3 turtles on the beach, with many more swimming in the sea. Highly recommended for a way to get out of the city and see what the rest of Oahu was like.

  • Tour was great and included many more stops than we expected, unfortunately each was only 20-30 minutes. Would have liked more time in each place - this tour might be better as a full day rather than 1/2 day. Our guide Tori was very friendly but was relatively new and it showed. The subcontractor, Oahu Nature tours, is a great choice as they do some amazing work with regard to eco-tourism and animal protection. Overall a good choice and the North Shore is definitely worth a visit particularly as the winter months approach huge waves. A highlight for us was seeing a giant sea turtle resting on the beach!!! Made the day!

  • This tour was fantastic. It gets you out of the city and into the beautiful outskirts of the beautiful island. Enjoyed a lovely lunch and the tour guide Ken was very generous with his time and explanation of history and culture of this magnificent piece of paradise.
