Departure Time

8:00 AM
Following pickup at your Waikiki hotel, board your minibus and meet your small tour group of 20 people or fewer and your local guide.

Travel first to Diamond Head, stopping for a photo-op at the spectacular lookout before heading to check out Halona Blowhole, where the ocean waves crash into a lava tube and spray water 50 feet (15 meters) in the air. 

Back aboard the minibus, head for Makapu’u Beach, passing beautiful Sandy Beach along the way. See Manana Island (Rabbit Island) and views of Makapu'u Point Lighthouse, then head for a secret spot at Waimanalo Beach Park. 

As you drive along the North Shore, see the famous surf beaches like Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay, and Pipeline on the way to Tsue Farm, where you have the chance to purchase a traditional Hawaiian plate lunch. Options include veggie stir fry, teriyaki chicken, shrimp or pork. Cap off your traditional Hawaiian lunch experience with one of Tsue's famous shave ices (own expense). Rent a kayak or paddleboard to explore the Anahulu River during your stop here.

Stop at family-owned macadamia farm, where you get a chance to crack raw macadamia nuts, taste macadamia nut coffee and taste samples of one of Hawaii's most famous products. Leaving the farm, stop at Kualoa Point for photo ops of Mokoli'i, a basalt island in Kane'ohe Bay. Then, head further up the coast to Laie Point, where you get fantastic views of the Ko'olau Mountains in the distance. 

Travel to a site known as 'Turtle Town' for its proliferation of green sea turtles. Embark on a guided snorkeling trip to see this secluded feeding ground and its majestic residents up close. Take a quick shower at the beach park's facilities and change into dry clothes before heading to your last stop, the Dole Pineapple Plantation. Here, see where the bulk of Hawaii's famous pineapples are grown and enjoy a refreshing frozen pineapple treat before heading back to your Waikiki hotel for drop-off.

King Mike is an exceptional tour guide. He is knowledgeable, numerous and very supportive to my slight mobility issues. The tour included many things beyond the description and was totally well placed and visited spectacular places. Views of the ocean, turtle Bay and a scrumptious shrimp garlic butter meal at Fumi’s made for a lovely first day in Hawaii.

Our guide Mike was amazing and so fun! He provided us with lots of i formation to make the rest of our trip even better. Although the water wasn't the clearest we saw several turtles on shore which was the highlight of the trip and then we made a stop where we were able to see an array of tropical fish! I would highly recommend this tour!!
