    What to Expect
    Journey deep into Oahu’s Ka'a'awa Valley and experience verdant ranch land and mountains on this horseback-riding adventure at Kualoa Ranch. Located less than an hour from busy Honolulu, Kualoa Ranch's peaceful environment, well-trained horses and expert wranglers will ensure that you have a safe and fun experience. 

    Take a scenic drive through the Hawaiian countryside or select the transportation option for pick-up and drop-off from select Waikiki locations.  Once arrived, you'll embark on your adventure!  This new adventure package combines 3 of our famous tours in one - 1hr Horseback ride, Movie Sites & Ranch Tour and our Tropical Garden Tour.  Take in the beauty of the ranch while dining on a delicious buffet lunch before completing your day at the ranch!

    1-Hour Horseback

    Kualoa’s horseback tours offer guests the opportunity to experience the spectacular scenery of Oahu’s hidden valleys.  On this one-hour tour, ride the southern half of Kualoa to take in views of the famed Mokoli’i island (“Chinaman’s Hat”) and our ancient 800-year old Hawaiian fishpond. One hour tour time includes time for safety briefing.

    Movie Sites & Ranch Tour

    This behind-the-scenes tour showcases many of the familiar movie sites where Hollywood blockbusters have been filmed since the 1950’s at Kualoa.  You’ll see iconic Jurassic sets like the Indominus Rex dinosaur pen, the Jurassic Park gate, the Gyrosphere loading dock, as well as the famous fallen log from Jurassic Park. Continue with Godzilla’s footprints, the bunkers from LOST, a Hawaii Five-0 set, and even a walk around the location of the Hukilau Cafe from 50 First Dates. To refresh your memory, movie clips of the various scenes shot at Kuala are shown to enhance the tour.  

    Tropical Garden Tour

    Guests will also explore the tropical fruit and flower gardens of Moli’i along the shores fronting our “Secret Island”. Admire the accomplishments of the early Hawaiians as the rich stories of the voyaging canoe and ancient fishpond unfold.  Taste some of the fruits along the way depending on season.

    Lunch Buffet Menu

    BBQ Pork Ribs, Kualoa Chili Con Carne, Baked Chicken, Vegetable Stir-Fry, Steamed White Rice and Fresh Fruit.

    Yes, the ride we went on was steady but slow. My husband had recently recovered from surgery and had a similar concern, but he did not find the ride jarring at all.
