This tour begins with a sweeping vista of the resorts at Ko Olina and the marina area. Here you’ll get an aerial view of the infamous Queen Anne’s Revenge, Captain Jack Sparrow’s ship from The Pirates of the Caribbean. Ships of a more recent vintage occupy your next highlight, Pearl Harbor. In addition to the Navy’s latest, you’ll see two WWII icons, the Arizona Memorial and the Battleship Missouri, often referred to as the “bookends of WWII.” Up next is placid Keehi Lagoon, home of a variety of ocean sports, and historic Honolulu Harbor. You'll see Aloha Tower, once the tallest structure on the island, as well cruise ships from distant ports.

Next is downtown Honolulu, featuring the only royal palace in the country. Above the city stands Punchbowl, the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. The tour continues above Ala Moana Beach Park, Magic Island, the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor and Waikiki Beach. See surfers, marine life and the sparkling white sand of the world’s most famous beach. At Diamond Head, you’ll turn and head over Honolulu proper, the University of Hawaii campus and on up the Nuuanu Pali. Here you will get a fine view of Lulumahu Falls and a grand perspective of Honolulu.

On your return to the resort area you'll see the campus of Kamehameha Schools and Oahu’s Central Plain.

Frequently Asked Questions
Availability here changes constantly. We can tell you something is available and then 5 minutes later someone else books and its not available anymore. If you make a booking and your activity is not available, then you will not be charged. No hassles, no worries!
H Tours Hawaii is a "one stop shop" for all the best activities in the Hawaiian Islands. Since we work with many providers, reservations are necessary. WE HIGHLY recommend making reservations, as many activities are at a discount when you reserve in advance. Some providers even charge higher for those "walking in" because they know chances are you're not going to walk away. Finally, a reservation ensures you have a space on the tour. Trust us you don't want to spend so much time and money to come to Hawaii and then miss out on an activity because they were booked out!
Choose the tour you are interested in, click the red “Book It” button adjacent to the tour information, and complete the booking form.
While we can usually accommodate most last-minute bookings, we highly encourage those that are checking out our website far in advance to book 2-3 weeks prior to desired date. You never know if there's a convention, special event, or an increase in overall visitors in town, and it would be a shame if the activities that you want to do are sold out because you waited until the last minute. Basically, if you know you want to do it, just book it!
Most companies have a set of centrally located hotels that they do pick ups from. This makes the pickup process short so you can start the tour as soon as possible!
Gratuity is never required but if you enjoyed your experience, a tip is always greatly appreciated!
