😷 Health & Safety

Because of the nature of our tours, our guests are not required to present a COVID-19 vaccination card or proof of negative test for COVID-19. However, to comply with the new City and County of Honolulu Safe Access Oahu requirements for guest entry to restaurants, museums and venues (including, but not limited to our tour stops), our partners will require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test. Please make sure that you have a valid vaccination card that notes full vaccination taken at least 15 days prior, or proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within the last 48 hours.

Venues do not want to turn anyone away, but will not allow anyone in without the proper documentation and valid ID. Also be advised that refunds will not be offered if you are refused entry. Children under 12 years old are exempt.

SAFETY for our guests and employees will be our number one priority moving forward.

Circle Island Sightseeing Tour

Location: Waikiki, Oahu

Come with us and discover Oahu’s breathtaking scenery on our Majestic Circle Island Tour. By doing so, you’ll be captivated by the the island’s unique beauty and dramatic history. We’ll handle all the admission fees on this excursion. So just sit back and relax.

What to Expect

You’ll begin the tour as the morning sun warms the sandy beaches of Waikiki. Soon the eastern shores of Oahu will appear as you circle Diamond Head Crater. Then you’ll pass through luxurious Kahala with its mansions and beach houses.

As we continue our tour, you’ll witness one of the most photographed places on Oahu. You’ve arrived at beautiful Hanauma Bay. This coral reef and marine sanctuary protects a wide array of sea creatures. Other natural wonders include underwater lava tubes. They shoot ocean sprays 30 feet in the air like a geyser as waves crash against the shoreline.

Before long, we’ll weave up the Koʻolau Mountains to the Nuʻuanu Pali Lookout. This is where King Kamehameha battled to unite the Hawaiian Islands. Later, you’ll find yourself in a mountain cleft gazing at the Byodo-In Temple. This remarkable structure commemorates the 100-year anniversary of the first Japanese immigrants.

Next we'll stop for a delicious lunch at one of the many roadside eateries on beautiful East Oahu. Please bring money for the lunch as it is not included in the price of the tour.

Moving on, we’ll visit Waimea Valley. Led by your guide you will explore an ancient Hawaiian ahupua`a filled with tropical flowers, trees and birds. See historic sites along the way up to Waimea Valley’s 45’ waterfall, where you can swim. *Please bring swimwear and towel if planning on swimming, signed waiver required if swimming.

Next, we’ll journey to Dole Plantation with its rows of pineapple and sugarcane. Your guide will share the rich agricultural history of Oahu. And you’ll learn how the sweet and prickly pineapple became Hawaii’s symbol of hospitality.
