Description:

Join us on this exciting journey of discovery that will satisfy your senses and provide exceptional photo opportunities.

Begin your day driving through the Amelia Earhart Point on the ocean-facing outer slopes of Diamond Head Crater, Hawaii's icon and most recognizable landmark, where you can marvel at the 100,000-year-old volcanic peak perched above the Pacific.

Traveling along Oahu's spectacular southeast coastline, we arrive at the famous Halona Blowhole and "From Here to Eternity" beach where Green Sea Turtles can often be spotted in the emerald-green waters of the cove made famous by the only Oscar-winning movie made in Hawaii.

We continue to visit Sandy Beach, a beautiful sandy-bottom beach that looks peaceful and serene, but is known for its notoriously powerful shore-breaks, pounding waves and body-surfing opportunities.

Driving by Makapu'u Lookout, you will see this island's most recent lava flows and enjoy incredible panoramic views of offshore islands, turquoise and azure ocean water and breathtaking lava cliffs above.

We continue to the world-renowned Pali Lookout, that Mark Twain called the most beautiful views on the planet.

Driving north, we arrive at the Valley of the Temples and visit the colorful Byodo-In Temple, a photographer's dream. This Hawaii State Landmark is home to wild peacocks and hundreds of koi carp with a large reflecting pond and meditation niches.

Continuing on the relaxing Windward Coast, we also visit the scenic Chinaman's Hat, a picturesque islet located in the warm, tropical waters of Kaneohe Bay.

Continuing north to Kahuku, home of the North Shore's famous shrimp famrs, you will observe endangered wetland birds, including Black-neck Stilts, Hawaiian Coots and Moorhens. Stopping at one of the locals' favorite shrimp trucks, try some delicious locally farmed garlic shrimp, fish or a chicken plate and refreshing drinks. You will be served your choice of nine different sauteed shrimp plates, fresh lemon and steaming rice while your nature guide provides information about Hawaii's aquaculture efforts. (Chicken Katsu, Cheeseburger and Veggie Chow Mein options are also available!)

Next you can marvel at the world-famous Sunset Beach as we drive by this legendary big-wave surfing location where towering, giant waves arrive between November-April.

Then we visit Waimea Valley Arboretum and Waterfall. This enchanting and relaxing location showcases over 5,000 species of tropical flowering plants, ancient archaeological sites, and one of the most scenic waterfalls on the island.

Our last stop is the historic Dole Plantation where you will find many varieties of pineapple species from all over the world. Here, you can buy a souvenir to take home and share with your family and friends and always remember your exciting adventure around the island of Oahu and Waimea Waterfall. (*Dole has just announced that, due to covid, the next couple of Wednesdays, they will be closed to disinfect their facilities. So, on Wednesdays only - until they fully reopen - we will replace this tour stop with the quaint North Shore town of Haleiwa and its colorful Marketplace).

Throughout your journey of discovery around the island of Oahu, your nature guide will provide a fascinating narration about Hawaii's bird and plant species, geology, history and culture.
