What You Can Expect

Hawaii Duck Tour: Honolulu Sightseeing

Hawaii Duck Tour into the water.

Hop aboard your open-air, amphibious duck vehicle at Ilikai Hotel, located in central Waikiki. Designed originally for the military, these vehicles have become ideal for sightseeing, providing unique vantage points of the island's highlights. Throughout your journey through downtown and the harbor, your informative guide will provide historical detail, local stories and fun facts about the landmarks you pass.

Travel first through the streets of downtown Honolulu for a glimpse of the Aloha Tower, an iconic Hawaiian landmark constructed in 1926. Pay homage to the world’s largest open-air shopping center as you pass the Ala Moana. Continue to Chinatown, home to the island's art scene, where a bustling collection of temples, shops, markets, antique dealers and restaurants keep the atmosphere lively.

Next, pass the State Capitol and Iolani Palace. The palace was once home to the Hawaiian Kingdom’s last two monarchs and today is a national historic landmark. See the statue of the beloved King Kamehameha I, who brought the Hawaiian Islands into a united royal kingdom in 1810 after decades of conflict.

Then make a splash as your vehicle hits the water, transforming into a boat. Cruise around the historic Sand Island and soak up unbeatable views of the coastline, from downtown Honolulu all the way to Diamond Head.

After 2.5 hours of sightseeing, your tour will conclude at your starting point.

Fun tour and great guide (Julie) who provided us with a lot of information. It rained during the tour and instead of taking cover she distributed the rain suits and stayed out in the open with us. Difficulty in finding the pickup location and you need to advertise more to make more tourists aware of this wonderful tour. Quack quack.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2016

Was OK. I guess I misunderstood where we would be going. I thought we would be going parallel to Waikiki beach

1 star rating: I do not recommend this June 2015

This was very boring. Went on duck tour in Seattle and it was so much fun the driver was so funny and when you hit the water there was so much to see. This tour was no fun and the water part there was nothing to see only water not happy with this tour
