Our island discovery continues with the beautiful Hanauma Bay, a pristine marine eco-system with colorful living coral reefs and beaming fish and marine life.
Travelling along O’ahu’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.
Our next stop is Makapu’u Lookout where you will see the 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 stop for lunch at Fumi’s Shrimp Stand on the North Shore where you will be served your choice of nine different sauteed shrimp plates with steaming rice and a delicious, shave-ice treat.
World famous Sunset Beach is next on your itinerary. This is the legendary big-wave surfing location where towering, giant waves arrive between November-April.
Next we visit Waimea Valley and Waterfall. This enchanting location showcases over 5,000 species of tropical flowering plants, ancient archaeological sites, and one of the most scenic waterfalls on the island.

Duration: 11 hours

Stop At: Diamond Head State Monument, 18th Ave. Waikiki, Honolulu, Oahu, HI 96815

Our island discovery continues with the beautiful Hanauma Bay, a pristine marine eco-system with colorful living coral reefs and beaming fish and marine life.

Duration: 15 minutes

Pass By: Makapu'u Point, Kalaniana'ole Hwy turnout above Makapu'u Beach, Oahu, HI 96795

Beautiful coastal vistas and views of offshore islands.

Pass By: Nu’uanu Pali, Oahu, HI

The Nuuanu Pali State Wayside is a lookout above the Pali Highway tunnels where you’re treated to a panoramic view of Oahu's Windward side with sweeping views of Kaneohe, Kaneohe Bay and Kailua. It’s also well known for strong tradewinds, forming a natural wind tunnel of sorts. It was here in 1795 that Kamehameha The Great conquered the island of Oahu in one of the bloodiest battles in Hawaiian history. Led by Kalanikupule, the defenders of Oahu were driven back up into the valley where they were trapped above the cliff. More than 400 of Kalanikupule's soldiers were driven off the edge of the cliff to their deaths 1,000 feet below.
**Important Notification:
A recent landslide and the subsequent shutdown/ closures of nearby roads by the State of Hawaii is currently making it impossible for us to visit one of our stops on your Ultimate Circle Island Adventure.
The affected location is the Pali Lookout. We can still offer you eleven scheduled stops around the island though because we are adding a replacement location: Haleiwa Bay, where we will look for endangered Green Sea Turtles and see a Baywatch Hawaii filming location. The State is planning extensive repairs for the next two months until about August this year. This period of course can be shorter or it can be extended by the State but as soon as they open the roads again we are reverting to the original itinerary. The tour price remains unaffected by this itinerary change.

Stop At: Byodo-In Temple, 47-200 Kahekili Hwy, Kaneohe, Oahu, HI 96744-4562

The Temple grounds are a lushly landscaped paradise nestled in a cleft of the pali and are home to wild peacocks and hundreds of Japanese koi carp. The beautiful grounds include a large reflecting pond, meditation niches, and small waterfalls. Visitors describe this destination as beautiful, peaceful, and restful.
The TV series Hawaii Five-O and Magnum, P.I. featured several episodes where the temple is incorporated into the plot. The temple and its gardens also appeared in an episode of the ABC series Lost, "House of the Rising Sun" in season one as the home of Sun's father.

This tour was the most amazing excursion I’ve ever been a part of. Our tour guide Monique was the most down to earth, nicest, and knowledgeable person you could ever meet. She made the 12 hour day worth every minute. She knows the island like no other and takes the time to answer your questions and really teach you about the island of Oahu. Her love and passion for Hawaii truly shows and it was a great way to start the trip. Do not miss this tour it is a must! Mahalo Monique for a once in a lifetime experience!

I took this trip with my wife to take a closer look at the remote places in Oahu which are not very "touristy" and I must say I was thoroughly impressed. I will list down the pros and cons of this trip:Pros:1. This trip was very well organized, the tour started and ended exactly as mentioned so this allowed for better planning for the rest of the day.2. Monique (hope I spelled her name correctly!) our tour guide and driver, deserves a special mention! The best tour guide we had so far! She was very informative of the entire trip, right from the origin and cultural history of Oahu to all the different biological species we saw on our trip (she is a budding biologist!). This tour is operated by Oahu Nature Tours and they donate part of their income towards nature conservation, so a big thumbs up to them!3. This trip includes food, they take you to a local shack which serves garlic shrimp that is locally sourced (which is supposedly a big deal since they only have enough shrimp to cater to 1/3rd of the tourist population, the rest is imported).Cons:1. We booked this tour on Viator, but there was very little description included in terms of the list of places we will be visiting. Especially, Hanauma bay was listed as a major attraction, however this site is closed on Tuesday which is when we took our trip, and therefore we could not visit it. This info was not included in the tour description and was a little disappointed to not visit it.2. This tour includes multiple halts which lets us enjoy the different parts of the island. Although most places visited are awesome, there are some (Dole plantation- pretty average although personal preference) which could have been avoided and resulted in more time for others (Byodo-In temple deserves a lot longer of a time span than provided).

Levant, our guide, was fabulous! He was so well informed and interesting. We learned so much about the Hawaiian Islands! The geology, history, flora and fauna that is unique to the islands was explained with such expertise. We made many stops to view various beaches, parks, important sites and famous sites. The lunch at the shrimp shack was delicious! We highly recommend this tour. Ask for Levant for you guide.
