Day 1 Honolulu-Pearl Harbor-Oahu-Honolulu(54 miles)
In the morning, guests will be picked up from their hotels to begin this tour. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off times and locations. Our day will begin at sunrise, when we will visit the striking USS Arizona Memorial, a quietly moving placing where we will learn firsthand of the history, tragedy, and heroism of the attack that propelled the U.S. into World War II. Afterwards, when the day is well underway, we will pass through the center of Oahu, heading toward the North Shore. We will stop at the Dole Plantation, which provides refreshment and relaxation. Passing through some of the small towns that dot the coast of the North Shore, such as Sunset, Piplene, and Waimea Bay, we will pick up the laid-back local rhythm of the surfing culture and country-island lifestyle. Among the island's lush and rugged mountain range, we will reach the elevated battlefield of Nu'uanu Pali, where King Kamehameha fought to unify the Hawaiian Islands. As the sun begins to set, our journey will continue to the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, giving us a moment to remember those who honored us by giving their lives for our freedom and protection. Over the course of the day, our guide will provide us with interesting folklore and fascinating historical details of the island. At the end of the tour, guests will be returned to their hotels in Honolulu.
Pearl Harbor is a lagoon harbor on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, west of Honolulu. Much of the harbor and surrounding lands is a United States Navy deep-water naval base. It is also the headquarters of the United States Pacific Fleet.
This memorial in Honolulu, Hawaii serves as a remembrance of the American soldier killed in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. The ship marks the resting place of over one thousand of the dead.
Oahu is the most popular of the Hawaiian Islands. It is the location of Honolulu, Hawaii's capital, as well as much-loved tourist spots like Pearl Harbor and Waikiki. The Polynesian Cultural Center is on this island as well.
Dole Plantation opened in 1950, billing itself as "Hawaii's Pineapple Experience." In addition to touring the fields, visitors can attempt the "world's largest maze," a 3-acre adventure with more than two miles of paths and a mystery to solve.
The northern side of the island of Oahu is famous for being one of the best surfing locations in the world. In the winter, the waves are especially massive, attracting visitors from all over the world.
This area has great cultural and historic significance to native Hawaiian religion, featuring several buildings that date to the time of the Hawaiian monarchy. The falls located here are occasionally used for cliff diving.
This scenic point on Koʻolau Mountain in Oahu's Nuʻuanu Valley offers spectacular panoramic views of the northeastern coastline of the island of Oahu. The area is also the location of the Nuʻuanu Freshwater Fish Refuge and Nu'uanu Reservoir.
The Halona Blowhole on the south shore of Oahu is the result of tubes created in rock thousands of years ago by volcanic eruptions. Large waves force water through the tubes, jetting it 30 feet into the air.
Both a bathing beach and a nature preserve, the Hanauma Bay area is one of Oahu's most popular tourist spots. While actually touching the local animals is illegal, you can still get closer to them than almost anywhere else!
Opening Hours: Closed on Tuesdays
Rising over Honolulu, Diamond Head is a dormant volcano with an interior crater. The Diamond Head crater is one of the world's best examples of this geological formation. The crater's interior is now a national park.
