Adventure With A Local: Half Circle Island Tour
From US$129,00

Lean about Hawaii’s history, biodiversity, and culture on this 4-hour island tour by jeep. Designed for people who want to go beyond the normal destinations, the small-group tour introduces you to local secrets and can be tailored to your group’s specific interests. Swim in the ocean and snap photos of panoramic views as you get to know the island with a local.

What to Expect

Meet your guide at your hotel at 9:00 am and leave the logistics and details to them. Don’t worry about missing major sights as your guide has mapped out a comprehensive itinerary showcasing the island’s well-known and hidden sights.

See Hanauma Bay - a marine sanctuary, and stop at Lanai Lookout to see how many of the other Hawaiian Islands are visible, then continue on to the Halona Blowhole and Beach Cove, a naturally occurring lava tube formed in volcanic rock that shoots water into the sky like a geyser. 

Then, visit Makapu’u Lookout for views of Rabbit Island and the Mokulua Islands.

Next, explore Oahu’s longest continuous stretch of white sand at Waimanalo Beach, take a dip in the Pacific and then make your way back to Waikiki with a final stop at the Pali Lookout before returning to your hotel

Hi Helene. I cannot answer for sure but they are a very friendly crew and I would call direct to let them know you are a single traveller and that you could join another group if that's ok.
