Circle Island Tour
USD 173.82
There’s so much to do and see in Hawaii’s Oahu Circle Island, but with this 12-hour tour, you can get the chance to squeeze in the most popular hotspots all into one day, without having to worry about transportation and scheduling lunch. Visit the Dole Plantation, the Polynesian Cultural Center, Diamond Head, Pali Lookout, and Halona Blowhole Lookout.
What to Expect
Your 12-hour Oahu Circle Island tour starts with an early-morning pickup from your hotel around 8:25am. A breakfast pastry baked by a local baker is provided to you for breakfast along the route. Ride in the comfort of an air-conditioned bus with reclining seats. The bus features large viewing windows on all sides, so no matter where you sit, you can catch views of the North Shore and South Shores as you ride.

Specific stops that are made during the drive include Hanauma Bay Lookout, Halona Blowhole Lookout and Pali Lookout. Plus, your group visits the Dole Plantation to take a ride on the Pineapple Express train and the Polynesian Cultural Center to cruise in a canoe. During all the excitement, take a break to eat lunch from Ponders Restaurant. Your group also drives through Haleiwa Town and goes to Tropical Farms.

If your bus doesn’t hit traffic during the day, you’ll be dropped back off at your hotel around 5:30pm.
