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.

Incredible tour with an incredible guide, Josh!

This was my moms and my first trip to Hawaii, and when I say this tour made the trip, it really made the trip. Josh our tour guide was absolutely phenomenal. His energy, knowledge and uplifting spirit absolutely made it everything it was. To be able to see everything we did in one day, and learn about the history and culture of the island, eat incredible food, and see some amazing land marks, this was by far worth it. We were able to see and swim with turtles, enjoy dole whip at the plantation, and our lunch was delicious l! I can only hope you are lucky enough to get Josh as your guide! I promise you he will make your day “too easy” and beyond enjoyable!

Poke Mike’s Great Adventure
Glenn_L
, Oct 2021
The blow hole with the water shooting out was spectacular. The turtles were interesting. Mike did a great job keeping it lively. The driver was exemplary. The views were fantastic. We enjoyed it very much. A little too much hype on the Poke. Lots of folks thought it was lunch and some even went to jacks. However there was a planned lunch stop and some were too full from the earlier psuedo lunch stop.

I’d do it again.
