Tours & Activities
Luxury Circle Island Tour with Snorkeling at Turtle Beach
Best Oahu Tours welcomes you to the Luxury Circle Island Tour. We start our day with the pickups from select Waikiki Hotels. It’s a full day guided tour, traveling in an upscale, air-conditioned minibus that will carry you and all the snorkeling gear that you will need for the day.

All our guests are provided cold bottle water.
Diamond Head Beach Lookout: Come with us and visit this stupendous lookout at the base of Diamond Head, an outcropping that towers above Honolulu; formed some 200,000 years ago when the sediment of a volcanic explosion solidified into the picturesque shape we know today.
The Halona Blowhole: According to legend Pele, the goddess of volcanoes formed the islands. When the once-molten rock met the sea, it formed this peculiar rock formation. When the surf crashes into the rocks, it erupts into a spectacular 30 foot high spray. Inspire a truly romantic moment and take a short walk to visit Halona Beach Cove, use the backdrop seen in the film “From Here to Eternity” to your advantage.
Secret Beach at Sherwood Forest: Hidden from most, this pristine shoreline is not visited by many tourists. Waimanalo was it’s original name, but “Secret Beach” fits perfectly. This location is surrounded by Ironwood trees. Due to its remote location we won’t be able to stop here, however we will be sure to take a slow scenic drive through in order to take in all the magic of this beautiful location.
Macadamia Nut Tropical Farm: With us you can get an exclusive peek behind the royal curtain of the King of Nuts. In this macadamia plantation, we will follow the legume from flower to harvest, learning how Hawaii pioneered this industry.

Dole Pineapple Plantation: A visit to the Infamous, Huge Country Store that offers a wide variety of Dole Plantation gifts, local favorites, foods and refreshments including the world-famous DoleWhip Ice Cream. All of Dole’s Hawaii pineapple crop is consumed right here in Hawaii. Don’t miss your chance to grab some to bring home or send as gifts. Please Note: the Dole visit does not allow time for the train ride or maze as they are too lengthy.
Plus many more stops!!!
Shark Cage Tour
Hanauma Bay Snorkel Adventure
Hanauma Bay is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the island of Oahu. Hanauma is a nature preserve park and about 400 species of fish are known to inhabit the bay as well as large green sea turtles. Therefore, it is the best snorkeling spot on the island, so book your snorkel adventure and fun tour today! We have over 20 years experience in bringing satisfied customers to Hanauma Bay. We provide on time reliable and dependable service directly to the bay. Don’t be fooled, many snorkel tour companies will pick up in a large van or bus and then make you transfer to a smaller van because of Hanauma’s rules and regulations. This is both inconvenient and wastes your valuable snorkeling time.
Other companies will make you first go to their shop to get your snorkel gear and try to up sell you to buy things you don’t need or want, once again wasting your time.
Our company will take you directly to the bay with no transferring, and set you up with your equipment at the park. We will show you how to adjust and use your snorkel equipment if do not know how.
