The Basics

There are a number of options for exploring the North Shore. Head to the water for a surfing or stand-up paddle board lesson, a sunset catamaran cruise, or a shark cage diving excursion. On land, tour the area’s rich farms, hike to Waimea Valley Falls, explore the fields and jungles of Kualoa Ranch, or see the island from above on a helicopter tour. While many tours leave from nearby Waikiki, it’s also possible to visit the North Shore on a day trip from Honolulu. Some full-day excursions include visits to Pearl Harbor, Hanauma Bay State Park, or the Dole Plantation.

Worth it!
Best tour. Definitely worth it! Keaton, Cole & Kat were great. Only downside is the transportation issue on the island. If your in Waikiki without a car be prepared to take the bus because Uber/ Lyft will drop you off but they won’t take you back

The tour guide was really nice & made the experience fun. We saw parts in Hawaii that we probably would not have seen if we had not booked this tour. We would definitely book again for any future tours!

North Shore Oahu Snorkeling Tour
My family and I had a great time. The captain and first mate were amazing guides. They were engaging and offered a lot of information about the North Shore area. The boat was a thrill ride and the snorkeling was easily my family’s favorite thing on our trip. We highly recommend this tour.

Zipline Tour On Oahu's North Shore
My daughter and I had a great time. The views were spectacular. The guides were amazing and shared some of the island history throughout the 3 hour excursion. Their safety protocols were very thorough and made us feel super safe. It is a great way to spend some family time together.

Intimate North Shore Eco-Fun Waterfall from Waikiki
Pali Lookout and the waterfall were highlights. Dole Plantation was crowded but worth the short stop. Our guide Paul was informative, kind and pleasant. He was helpful to my husband who had trouble negotiating the rocky portion of the beach. Seeing the turtle was a big plus.

Zipline Tour On Oahu's North Shore
It was a total blast! Zeke, Cody and Tanner were fantastic guides, sharing information and personal stories that added a lot to some very fun zip-lining! Safety was paramount and enabled everyone to focus on the gorgeous scenery as we zipped along. Special shout to Zeke for allowing us to ‘connect’ with other guides along the way ☺️ and for providing a recommendation for some of the best tacos I have ever eaten. Surf and Salsa rocks!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Only expert surfers should attempt to ride the North Shore’s massive winter waves.

  • Bring sun protection, comfortable shoes, and plenty of water.

How to Get There

Oahu’s North Shore stretches for more than seven miles (11 kilometers) and is located 30 miles (48 kilometers) from downtown Honolulu. During winter, the one-way road along the North Shore’s “seven-mile miracle” of popular surf beaches can back up for hours, so it’s best to visit on a tour to avoid the hassle of driving and parking.

When to Get There

The North Shore’s summer and winter seasons each have their benefits. In summer, seas are calm and you can to take beginner surf lessons, go kayaking, or enjoy some of Hawaii’s best snorkeling. Winter is the busiest time to visit, when expert surfers hit the waves and other visitors stick to the safety of land. If you opt for a winter visit, it’s best to arrive early (before 9am) to score a parking spot.
