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.

Kualoa Experience

Your choice of three Experience Tours below.

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 moviews 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.

The Ocean – Ocean Voyage & Hawaiian Fishpond and Garden Tour
This tour explores different facets of agriculture in Hawaii and this rich historic land by going through fields of tropical flowers, fruit trees, and gardens before venturing out on to Molii Fishpond. This 800 year old 125 acre Hawaiian fishpond is one of the largest and best preserved ancient fishpond in Hawaii. Ride a 49 passenger catamarn into the beautiful Kaneohe Bay and past famous Mokoli’i Island (Chinaman’s Hat) and Hokulea Beach, the ceremonial home of the first modern replica of an ancient sailing canoe. Ocean Voyaging tour is not available on Sundays and Federal Holidays.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

The best deal is to do one of their ADVENTURE PACKAGES. This basically gives you the “run of the ranch” for the day and the ability to participate in anything and everything that can be squeezed into one eventful day. The complete list of activities is found above; the most popular events are the horseback riding, ATV tour, and movie tour. With the full day adventure package you can do all three of those, along with one other event, and a nice buffet lunch is included too. Round-trip transportation from Waikiki hotels is available with this package.

The regular adventure package includes EITHER horseback riding OR ATV tour and two Hawaii experience narrated tours. If you want to do BOTH horseback riding and ATV tour you must book the DELUXE full day adventure.

ADVENTURE packages have age and weight restrictions for some of the tours and require a signed waiver of liability from all participants. For families with younger children, you will want to sign up for the Kualoa Experience as all of these activities are suitable for participants of all ages. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult on all activities though.

While it’s a good idea to have in mind the top two or three events that you’d like to do with your package, the selection of the exact tours that you will do is made upon arrival at the ranch. If you are reserved in advance for a package, adequate space is allotted for you to select the specific events you would like on the morning of your tour.
