What you can expect

Explore amazing local nature and scenery on a tour of Oahu's famous North Shore with your choice of outdoor activities. Snorkel at The Cove, swim at Waimea Valley Waterfall, bike the Tree Tunnel Path, stand-up paddle board or kayak in the protected ocean waters of Haleiwa Bay and up the Anahulu river, and surf or boogie board the North Shore.

The day-long adventure starts with a 1/2 circle island tour through the lush windward side of the island. Learn a bit of Hawaii's history on the way to the North Shore, then tour Oahu's famous surfing coastline. Visit the aptly named Sunset Beach, the swells at Banzai Pipeline, and Waimea Bay, where the brave jump off “The Rock.”

In the morning, you arrive at an ideal Hawaiian beach, where you can choose one or two of several exciting activities. Snorkel with Hawaiian green sea turtles at one of Oahu's marine sanctuaries, swim at Waimea Falls or bike the lush, shaded Tree Tunnel Path. Surfing and boogie boarding are also available depending on the ocean conditions, which are assessed on a daily basis.

On your way to the location for your afternoon activities, make a quick stop where you can see and take photos of the huge Hawaiian green sea turtles basking in the sun at Turtle Beach. Head to your last stop at the historic town of Haleiwa for lunch, shopping, and exploration. Choose between kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding or exploring Haleiwa for the afternoon. If you don't want to take any activity, you can have a plate lunch of shrimp or steak from the famous North Shore Shrimp Truck.
