Full description
This all-encompassing tour will leave you wishing you had time for more! Led by a knowledgeable and charismatic guide, you'll begin at sunrise with a trip to Pearl Harbor. Re-live history as you journey through the World War II "Valour in the Pacific" Monument and USS Arizona Memorial.  In this quiet and deeply moving place, experience the history, tragedy, and heroism of the attack that propelled the US into World War II. Take a boat ride to the USS Arizona Memorial structure and see what remains of the battleship itself as it rests below on the harbor floor.

Then, pass through the center of Oʻahu alongside Wheeler Airfield, one of the first targets of the Japanese naval attack, before heading toward the North Shore. Take a refreshing stop at the famous Dole Plantation where you can feed the koi fish in the plantation fish pond or grab a sweet frozen pineapple. Enjoy the laid-back local rhythm of the North Shore as you pass through small towns with just the right mix of surfing culture and country island-style. Sunset Beach, Banzai Pipeline, Waimea Bay —some of the shoreline’s famous names come to life as your guide shares fascinating local facts and tales.

Afterwards you will turn towards the island’s lush and rugged mountain range. Standing high on the windswept Nuʻuanu Pali cliffs, you can feel its wild and tragic history, an ancient parallel to the morning’s Pearl Harbor stories of bravery in the face of conflict. Take in the island’s windswept coastline where ancient lava fields descend into the sea. Early afternoon will find you turning back towards Honolulu, cruising around the slopes of Diamond Head, Hawaii’s most famous landmark. Both the young and young-at-heart will be entertained by island folklore and history shared by your guide throughout the day - it's the complete island experience for the whole family!
