Activities and Food! Oahu, Hawaii
Oahu offers so many fun activities and delicious food from all over the world! Why not combine the two? Our favorite tours involve doing the things that we would be doing on our days off. Choose to hike, snorkel, surf, or all three in one day. Next, grind (this means eat great food here in Hawaii)! We know the spots, the hidden gems, the hole in the walls where you can find real, local experiences and food without the Waikiki prices. Everything is totally flexible here at HI Private Tours. We will take you to do whatever you like, but what we recommend is to get outside and take in the nature. Then, go grind! Rinse, and repeat.
Prince Kuhio Day
Prince Kuhio day is coming up Tuesday, March 26th. This is a Hawaiian State Holiday and the festivities begin early. The parade will begin at 9:30 AM and will go right down Kalakaua Ave on Waikiki Beach. There will be vendors, music, food and more. Learn all bout this dignified statesman who served in U.S. Congress and established some of the earliest measures to protect the Hawaiian people from the influence of colonialism.
Have a quick stop at Green World Coffee Farms on your way to the North Shore, Oahu
Oahu's coffee is mostly grown on the North Shore. Green World Coffee Farm is a great place to start your day with a cup of joe. They have some of the best barista's on the island. Why not get it straight from the source?
Arriving in Honolulu via Hawaiian Cruise Ship (Pride of America, Carnival Legend, Emerald Princess, Crystal Symphony, Celebrity Solstice or Eclipse)? Try an Oahu Shore Excursion!
If you are looking for a great shore excursion while at port in Honolulu, we got you covered. We can do a Full Circle Island Tour and still have you back in time for departure. See all of the major sites and attractions at your own pace.
Or, take some time to hike, snorkel, who knows? Maybe even a horse back ride or zip line tour. The point is that anything is possible. We can create an accurate timeline for the day so that you can maximize your time here without stressing about departure time.
If you need to get from the Honolulu Cruise Terminal to Honolulu International Airport with way too much time to spare, as is often the case with travelers cruising the Hawaiian Islands, we can make it a memorable day while at the same time providing airport transfer including luggage. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about all of our shore excursion possibilities.
What a beautiful Day! Full circle tour with great conditions and some mini-adventures. Great to meet you! Aloha
Ka'au Crater Hike is the ultimate Oahu hike, offering waterfalls, valleys, ridges, and an incredible volcanic crater
Ka'au Crater Hike is one of the most challenging and rewarding hikes on Oahu. All together, it takes about 8-10 hours to complete the 5 mile loop. Hikers begin in the valley and hike up and around 3 waterfalls on their way to the crater ridge. Take a dip in one of the natural pools before you get to the second half of the hike. The ridge will take you all the way to the Ko'olau Summit Ridge briefly before bringing you back down into the valley. An early start and a nice, clear weather forecast are required for this hike... along with a little grit. This hike is not for the faint of heart and requires an above average fitness level. Totally Epic!
Makapuu Pillbox/Lighthouse, Lilikoi Pancakes, Oahu Windward.... with a little Australian humor. Aloha!
Thanks again to the crew from Perth. I really enjoyed meeting you and I wish you all the best! I hope to see you on your next trip to Hawaii. Aloha
