Aloha Pearl Harbor
With around 2 million visitors per year, Pearl Harbor is the #1 visitor attraction in the Aloha State. Drawing people from all corners of the globe, the Pearl Harbor experience is fun, educational, and impactful. We invite you to come experience history and appreciate the importance that Hawaii played during a significant time in global history.
The most iconic monument at Pearl Harbor is the USS Arizona Memorial pictured above, and it’s the focal point of this tour. If you are looking for half-day activity with lots of ‘bang for the buck,’ then this tour is the perfect option.
Your morning begins with Waikiki Pickups, Hot Kona Coffee, and delicious purple Taro Donuts from Kamehameha Bakery. Once you arrive to Pearl Harbor, you’ll check out some great museums and see the exclusive documentary before venturing out to the USS Arizona Memorial. The Wall of Names is one of the more sacred aspects of the visit to the USS Arizona Memorial. Here we are able to honor the fallen soldiers who lost their lives to the perils of war during the attack. A moment of silence is observed in during this time to pay respect for those who gave everything for their freedom.
Once you’ve experienced the core of the experience, we’ll take you out for a tour of downtown Honolulu including the Punchbowl National Cemetery and the statue of King Kamehameha the Great.
Spaces are limited, so make your reservation now! The tour returns to Waikiki between 11:30pm–3:00pm depending on time slot.

Round Trip Waikiki Transportation
Whatever hotel you are staying at in Waikiki, We will provide comfortable round trip transportation in our semi-private mini-coaches. Just the right size to make sure you can enjoy the Grand Circle Island Tour without being being crowded.
Diamond Head Beach Lookout
Diamond Head Beach Lookout was a strategic military site during WWII, and a favorite surfing spot for locals. There’s always a wave to be surfed at this beach. The lookout provides a good view of this hotspot in the foothills of Diamond Head.
After the Diamond Head Lookout, our second point of interest is the Gold Coast in Kahala. This area is like the Beverly Hills of Hawaii. You will see unbelievably large and luxurious properties and expansive estates.
The Halona Blowhole
The blowhole is a natural occurrence formed by molten lava tubes from volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago. The lava tubes run to the ocean and, when the surf is right, the blowhole shoots water up to 30 feet in the air.
Situated Near the blowhole in an incredibly beautiful corner of Oahu is a secret beach made famous in the movie “From Here to Eternity.” This little cove is extraordinary, and one of our hidden gems.
After the Blowhole and Eternity Beach, we’ll come upon the body boarding, body surfing, skim boarding, and broken neck capital of the world… Sandy Beach. A famous hangout for locals, and just amazing playground.
Makapu’u Point Lookout
As we round the Eastern Corner of the Island of Oahu, you will get a glimpse at one of the most awe-inspiring views that you will ever see. The vista from the Makapu’u Point lookout is truly something to behold… The Bluest of Blues, the Greenest of Greens.
Waimanalo Bay is an “off the beaten path” spot with a beach that will leave you in awe of it’s shear beauty. The beach is surrounded by an Ironwood forest. We can’t stop here, but it’s so beautiful we’re gonna drive through so you can see it.
Behold the legendary Chinaman’s Hat! This awesome geological formation is located on one of the most beautiful parts of the island. This stop is one of our guests favorite locations to take pictures. You would have a hard time finding a better beach to have a picnic!
Macadamia Nut Tropical Farm
Take a look back at the plantation days in Hawaiian history. Learn the life cycle of the nut from flower to harvest. Indulge in All You Can Eat Macadamia Nut Samples, grab a hot cup of Kona Coffee, and go outside to talk story with the Samoan Chiefs.
Laie Mormon Temple
After we have our fill over at the Macadamia Nut Plantation, it’s time to get back on the road. The next stop we’ll make is over to the amazingly beautiful Temple of the Church of Latter Day Saints in Laie, on the North Shore of Oahu.
The shrimp served on the North Shore is never frozen and actually locally raised in ponds right on their property. Enjoy their famous shrimp sautéed with butter and garlic, or tons of other options that don’t include seafood… But trust me… The Garlic Shrimp… Ono Grindz Cuz!
Exotic Fruit Stand
Mango, Pineapple, Coconut, Breadfruit, Dragon Fruit, Egg Fruit, Lilikoi, Honey Dew, Cantaloupe, Papaya, Apple Bananas, Ice Cream Bananas, Kiwis, Lychee, Rambutan, Sapote, Chi Chi, Jack Fruit… I could go on, but I think I would run out of character limit.
Sunset Beach on North Shore
Known for big wave surfing during the winter season, it is a site for surf competitions and home to the prestigious Vans Triple Crown of Surfing. We’re not allow to get out at this location, but when the surf is up you can see the waves from the bus.
We have now nourished our bodies, regained our energy stores, and it’s time to make our way out through Haleiwa to go to our snorkeling site. But, along the way there, we will pass through the quaint surfing town of Haleiwa, the most famous city on the North Shore.
Sea Turtle Beach (Alii Beach)
A beautiful spot for snorkeling. Large sea turtles (“Honu”) are often seen in the shallow waters here. The shore area is a combination of sand and rocky outcroppings, making the area perfect for snorkeling a seeing some of the local sea life.
Dole Pineapple Plantation
Dole Plantation offers a wide variety of unique gifts and refreshments including fresh pineapple, and DoleWhip ice cream. This is a great spot to grab some things to bring home, or send as gifts. Our stop here does NOT allow time for the train ride or maze.
