Ultimate Circle Island Adventure with Waimea Waterfall
From US$124.61
Overview
Take the ultimate Circle Island adventure on this guided, full-day, small-group tour from Honolulu. Stop at Diamond Head, the world-famous icon of Hawaii; beautiful Hanauma Bay, a pristine marine ecosystem; Halona Cove Beach, famous for its appearance in the 1953 movie ‘From Here to Eternity’ and much more. Also, check out one of the most beautiful panoramic views in the world, the breathtaking Pali Lookout and the historic Waimea Valley, featuring a botanical garden and waterfall. Lunch and a Honolulu hotel pickup and drop-off are included.
What to Expect
Join us on this exciting journey of discovery that will satisfy your senses and provide exceptional photo opportunities. Our first stop is near the world-famous icon of Hawaii, Diamond Head Crater, where we stop at the Amelia Earheart monument which overlooks the Pacific Ocean as the 100.000 year old volcanic crater towers above you.
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 continue to the world-renowned Pali Lookout, that Mark Twain called the most beautiful views on the planet.
Driving North we arrive at the Valley of the Temples and visit the colorful Byodo-in Temple, a photographer's dream.
Continuing on the relaxing windward coast we also visit scenic Chinaman’s Hat, a picturesque islet located in the warm, tropical waters of Kaneohe Bay.
Laie Point is our next stop. Here you can see native Hawaiian coastal plants and birds and Kukuihoolua, the famous puka island with a hole in its center.
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.
Our last stop is the historic Dole Plantation where you will find many colorful varieties of pineapple species from all over the world.
Throughout your journey of discovery around the island of Oahu your nature guide will provide a fascinating narration about Hawaii's bird and plant species, geology, history and culture.

Very satisfied - except for the storm in Waimea Falls!

My wife and I enjoyed this tour with the expert narration by Levent, who was a walking encycolopedia of sorts! We were warned that the 2-hour tour of Waimea Falls would proceed even if it rained -- and there was a heavy storm and we...More

It is quite a walk. Ground slopes gently but heat, humidity could be a problem. It is handicapped accessible but I do not recall having wheelchairs available. Check directly with site. Happy trails.
