Drive along Ala Moana Boulevard to the resort area of Waikiki. You will view the two dormant volcanoes of Diamond Head -- Oahu's most prominent landmark -- and Koko Head.

Journey to Hanauma Bay, a natural marine preserve with extensive underwater life. Travel up a snake-like road through a series of stratified cliffs of volcanic remains.

Take in views of Sandy Beach, famous for body surfing, and continue through the homestead area of Waimanalo.

Stop at the Halona Blow Hole, Hawaii's version of Old Faithful, to view a spectacular seawater eruption from a natural saltwater geyser.

At the famous Nuuanu Pali Lookout, brace for a spectacular view of the windward coast of Oahu. The Pali is the site where King Kamehameha the Great vanquished his enemies and unified the Kingdom of Hawaii.

After the tour, there is an optional drop-off at Hilo Hattie's for shopping.


Hanauma Bay is closed on Tuesdays and will be a drive-by only.
