What You Can Expect

Small-Group Circle Island Tour with Snorkeling

Chinaman's hat

Following pickup at your Waikiki hotel, board your minibus and meet your small tour group of twenty people or less and your local guide.

Travel first to Diamond Head, stopping for a photo op at the spectacular lookout before heading to check out Halona Blowhole, where the ocean waves crash into a lava tube and spray water 50 feet (15 meters) in the air. 

Back aboard the minibus, head for Makapu’u Beach, passing beautiful Sandy Beach along the way. See Manana Island (Rabbit Island) and views of Makapu'u Point Lighthouse, then head for a secret spot at Waimanalo Beach Park. 

As you drive along the North Shore, see the famous surf beaches like Sunset Beach, Waimea and Pipeline on the way to Tsue Farm, where you'll have the chance to purchase a traditional Hawaiian plate lunch. Options include veggie stir fry, teriyaki chicken, shrimp or pork. Cap off your traditional Hawaiian lunch experience with one of Tsue's famous shave ices (own expense). Rent a kayak or paddleboard to explore the Anahulu River during your 45-minute break stop here.

Stop at family-owned macadamia farm, where you'll get a chance to crack raw macadamia nuts, taste macadamia nut coffee and taste samples of one of Hawaii's most famous products. Leaving the farm, stop at Kualoa Point for photo ops of Mokoli'i, a basalt island in Kane'ohe Bay. Then, head further up the coast to Laie Point, where you'll get fantastic views of the Ko'olau Mountains in the distance. 

Travel to a site known as 'Turtle Town' for its proliferation of green sea turtles. Embark on a guided snorkeling trip to see this secluded feeding ground and its majestic residents up close. Take a quick shower at the beach park's facilities and change into dry clothes before heading to your last stop, the Dole Pineapple plantation. Here, see where the bulk of Hawaii's famous pineapples are grown and enjoy a refreshing frozen pineapple treat before heading back to your Waikiki hotel for drop-off.

It was a very good tour. Feel like we really saw old Hawaii. Raul was patient with those that had not snorkeled before. Our tour ran a little long, that was my only complaint. It was awesome overall. Highly recommend.

Even though we had a rainy day it didn't stop us from having a great day. Our tour guide Raul was full of interesting facts and lots of fun. It's a great way to see the island outside of Waikiki. Highlight of the day was definitely swimming with the sea turtles.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

This tour is good if you want to see a lot of different things, especially if you aren't renting a car. It has several stops for pictures of different views and beaches. It also stops at Dole and a Macadamia nut farm, which are good to see, but you don't need a lot of time at. There is a lot of getting on and off the bus. I wouldn't recommend buying the deluxe package as you can buy your own lunch and if you decide you want to kayak or paddle board you can purchase it there. I'd recommend wearing flip flops. There's not a lot of walking, but some will be on the beach. You don't need your bathing suit until halfway through the day, but it will cut into your snorkeling time if you have to walk to the bathroom to change. Also, bring a towel. Our guide Mark was very entertaining. We did see a lot of turtles as well. The food at lunch wasn't the best, but the fruit stand had these awesome fried bananas for only 1. Overall I think it's a good buy since it's a full day and you see so many different things.

This was an excellent small group tour in a minivan. Our driver, Raul, was very passionate and knowledgeable about the island. He also had a sense of humour and looked after us very well. There were only ten of us on the tour which made it very personal. The tour was very comprehensive and covered a lot of the island which we wouldn't otherwise have seen as we only had two days in Hawaii. The highlight was snorkelling with the green turtles. Although the water was a bit murky, Raul helped us to find the turtles. Would thoroughly recommend this tour.

Was very good tour. Saw lots of island that would never have seen on own. Beautiful beaches etc. Lots of info with Justin. Was just what said on the tin. Only saw one turtle but was fine. Didn and #39;t like food but it was good to experience. Would highly recommend if you just want to see take photos and go

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2015

This tour was advertised as a Turtle tour through the company that runs the tour. Only about an hour is spent with the tours- the water is very murky. I only saw the turtles twice, my husband didn't see any at all. Overall, the tour was fun and we got to see a lot of the island. Like most of these tours, they take you to all of the tour traps small gift stores where you stay for 20 minutes.... Our bus driver, King Mike, was very nice and easy going. Recommended if you're interested in seeing the island, not recommended if you want to snorkel with turtles.
