Kualoa Ranch is a beautifully scenic property on Oahu’s windward side. An impressive list of movies and TV shows have been filmed in this scenic area. The majestic cliffs and spires of the Kualoa Mountains, the lush greenery of the Ka’a'awa Valley, the ancient fishponds on the south side of the property, the quintessential view of Chinaman’s Hat (Mokolo’i Island) provide a scenic backdrop for a day of fun and adventure. Kualoa Ranch is not just a working cattle ranch; it is an “activity club” offering a fun-filled day during your vacation.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Kualoa Ranch is currently open daily and is offering activities and tours as single-events only at this time. The only multi-tour package they are offering is their Kualoa Experience and this is the only current tour package that has optional transportation from Waikiki available.

Kualoa Experience

 

The Valley – Movie Site and Ranch Tour
This is the most popular narrated tour … guests are transported to the gorgeous 1,000 acre Ka’a'awa Valley to experience where many of Hollywood’s biggest block buster movies and television shows were filmed. Check out the Jurassic Park site, find Godzilla’s footprints, see the famous battlefield from the movie Windtalkers, listen as your guide tells you about Pearl Harbor, 50 First Dates, George of the Jungle, You Me and Dupree, and who can forget LOST???

The Mountains – Jungle Expedition Tour
Board your 6-wheel drive Pinzgauer and get ready for this back-country narrated tour. Your guide will tackle some rough terrain as you maneuver through isolated stream beds, and up a hill where you will disembark for a brief walk/hike to a viewpoint where you will be rewarded with one of the most dramatic views of the windward coastline. This is fast becoming the most popular narrated tour.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

Kualoa Ranch is an incredibly scenic property and you’ll recognize it from countless movies and TV commercials that have been filmed here. The current highlight of these tours for me is the movie set props that have been left behind at the scene of filming of a King Kong movie … a giant gorilla skull and triceratops bones scattered around with mountain of jagged rock spires as the backdrop. You’ll get photos here that will be instant hits on Instagram.

In addition to the Experience Package and the Raptor ATV tour, there is one other way to experience this valley that has a page of its own you should look at … there is a 2 hour Jurassic Park E-bike tour that also goes to these locations. It’s perhaps my favorite way to see the movie sites.

Whichever way you decide to experience Kualoa Ranch, you MUST plan ahead. In the summer of 2021 we are seeing unprecedented demand for these tours. They are selling out COMPLETELY every space 4-5 weeks in advance!!! If you don’t plan ahead and order months before your arrival you will not get on one of these tours!!!
