Oahu Grand Circle Tour with Snorkeling from Waikiki via Bus
From US$129.00
Overview
This bus tour of the Oahu Grand Circle makes it easy to see top Oahu sights in just one day without having to spend any time planning. A guide keeps you entertained as you visit the Dole Plantation, Diamond Head, and more via comfortable minibus, stopping at top vista points along the way. End the day with a good sense of what the North Shore has to offer.
What to Expect
Your Oahu Grand Circle tour begins with pickup from your Waikiki hotel. Step onboard your minibus to join your guide and group of 20 people or fewer.
First, drive to Diamond Head and stop to snap a photo at the lookout. The popular Halona Blowhole is next, where you see ocean waves crash into a lava tube and spray water up to 50 feet (15 meters) in the air.
Then, pass by pristine beaches and historical lighthouses on your way to Makapu’u Beach, Waimanalo Beach Park, and Sunset Beach. Stretch your legs at Tsue Farm and optionally try a traditional Hawaiian lunch or rent a kayak or paddleboard to explore the Anahulu River (own expense).
Next, take a quick snorkel at a spot known for its sea turtles. Shower and change, and then visit your final stop at the Dole Plantation.
Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in Waikiki.

My grandson was 9 years old at the time but the tour might be too long for younger kids.

I can’t remember what we paid - I want to say maybe 50 -60 per person give or take ? Also they stop for lunch but u have to buy that on your own. You may be able to negotiate a lower cost for 4 of u. Enjoy!
