Oahu offers vacationers a unique opportunity to coast downhill on a bicycle as you ride through a tropical rainforest. Your guide will pick you up at your Waikiki hotel (or at an arranged meeting place if you aren’t staying in Waikiki) and then shuttle you to the top of Mount Tantalus on a road high above downtown Honolulu. After being fitted with your bicycle and helmet and receiving a safety briefing, you’ll start your cruise down the mountain. Along the way you’ll stop at overlooks that feature panoramic views of the skyline and beaches of Honolulu and Waikiki, with iconic Diamond Head Crater as a backdrop. A support van follows bikers down the mountain as you descend from high on the slopes of Mount Tantalus through the Pu‘u Ohia rainforest. This 5 mile ride is available as a stand-alone activity, or combine it with a waterfall hike or a snorkel / sail (or both) for an adventure-filled day.

Explore the picturesque “Jurassic Valley” with an electric assisted motor mountain bike (with 4 inch wide tires).  This is a beginner level tour for guests of all types, and is great for those who may not have the confidence or fitness level to go on a more strenuous regular bike tour. See Kualoa Ranch’s most popular landmarks and enjoy a leisurely 90 minute adventure.  Experience the movie sites from Jurassic Park and Jurassic World, Kong Skull Island, Godzilla, 50 First Dates, LOST, Hawaii Five-0 and more throughout the valley!
From ancient times, the lands of Kualoa Ranch have been considered one of the most sacred places on Oahu. Learn about the island’s rich history and experience the natural beauty of this area as you saddle up and enjoy this horseback riding in paradise. Ride beneath spectacular cliffs and across verdant valleys with ocean vistas.

Kualoa Ranch is one of the most scenic spots in Hawaii and this is your chance to explore the ranch up close and personal. Drive your own ATV on trails deep into scenic valleys and to remote areas rarely visited by others. ATV tours are fun in the sun and even in the rain … digging through the dirt and mud and crossing seasonal streams are all part of the adventure.  Kualoa Ranch also offer multi-passenger vehicles on the Raptor Tours, which go the same route as the single passenger ATV tours.
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 Ka’a’awa Valley, the ancient fishponds on the south side of the property, and 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.

Discover the hidden hiking treasures of Oahu’s lush volcanic rainforest. This moderate 2-mile round-trip guided hike is a rare opportunity to explore 75-acres of sacred land that is exclusive only to the guests of the ranch. Experience the majestic beauty of a towering 200-foot private waterfall, cross through tranquil streams, enjoy picturesque pools and view ancient lo`i (rock terraces) and the lush tropical vegetation of paradise.

Explore the East Oahu Cliffs! These tours perfect for those who want something special without the crowds from other tour companies and the general public. The combination Waterfall Hike & East Oahu Cliffs takes you to a 200 foot waterfall and the Koolau summit at the 1,200 foot Kamehame Ridge. The East Oahu Cliff Explorer, is the same tour without the waterfall hike if you’re interested in a shorter experience with optional hiking.
On the Farm to Forest Experience, you will be immersed in the confluence of West Oahu’s natural and cultural histories through its historic sites, stories, people, and food.  Travel your way from the beach to the forested mountains above. It is more than just an Oahu farm tour, and the unique tour and interpretive guide will take you on a journey through time that includes three locations not open to the public.  After meeting the farmers themselves, taste a farm-to-fork lunch featuring local produce from a favorite lunch spot.  This tour has exclusive access to hike the uplands of Waianae and take in breathtaking views of Pearl Harbor, Honolulu, and Diamond Head.
Honolulu Heights gives you an experience of Oahu’s history from spectacular view planes atop ancient eruptive sites.   Discover the wonder of our tropical mountain forests. You will summit the iconic Leahi, Diamond Head, with a guide who brings to life geologic and historic events. Enjoy a picnic breakfast that includes island fruit smoothies and freshly cut pineapple. Follow the marching footsteps of Kamehameha’s warriors to the Nuuanu Pali lookout, and gaze upon the stunning view of the cliffs that are a designated National Natural Landmark. Stroll among thousands of tropical and subtropical exotic plants at the Lyon Arboretum.
Sea Life Park is located on Oahu’s windward coast, about 30 minutes from Waikiki at scenic Makapu‘u Point. Get up close and personal with a fantastic array of marine life and make amazing discoveries about the inhabitants of our aquatic world.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

Our Oahu Adventure Tour section has a diverse selection of vacation activities that require a bit of bravery or take you a little outside of your day-to-day comfort zone. Whether it is a thrilling downhill bike ride or zooming around on an ATV or swimming with dolphins … expect fun and smiles and great photo ops and the chance to brag about “look what I did on vacation in Hawaii” when you get back to the office.

Most of the events listed here do require the signature of a waiver of liability in order to participate. It is possible to get hurt if you fall riding a bike … it is possible to hit a tree if you are driving an ATV … but all of these events have been designed with safety in mind and are fine for people with average physical skills and good judgment.

One thing missing from this adventures section is ziplines … that’s because ziplining is SO popular we’ve given it a section all its own … you will find Oahu Zipline Tour options here.
