    What to Expect
    Begin your tour of Oahu's North Shore with convenient 8am pickup at your Waikiki hotel. Climb aboard a mini-bus or limo and take off for the rugged northern part of the island, long a favorite of surfers and travelers who want to escape the city pace of Waikiki. 

    Drive straight to the famous Banzai Pipeline beach, where the surfing world's champion is decided each year. Hit up Turtle Town, the Dole Pineapple Plantation, and Waimea Bay as your guide provides engaging narrative. 

    Make a pit stop for lunch at a local restaurant (included with upgrade) and go swimming or stand-up paddleboarding (included with upgrade). Continue to Hanauma Bay, where you can swim and snorkel at what is considered one of the island's best beaches. You'll be treated to sights of flourishing coral, bright tropical fish, and the occasional sea turtle.

    Wrap up your tour and head back to Waikiki, arriving back at your hotel around 5pm.
