Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

Kualoa Ranch has some of the most spectacular landscapes in Hawaii … that’s the reason so many Hollywood films and TV shows have shot scenes here. It’s a great place to go horseback riding.

The best deal is to do one of their deluxe full-day adventure packages. Along with the horseback riding or the ATV tour, include two other Kualoa tours. With the full day adventure package you can do those two events, the very popular movie site tour, and one other event, and a nice buffet lunch is included too. Round-trip transportation from Waikiki hotels is available with this package.

Please note that if you want to do BOTH horseback riding and the ATV tour you must book the DELUXE full day adventure. The regular full day adventure includes EITHER horseback riding OR the ATV tour, along with two other Kualoa experiences.

If you want to go horseback riding as part of a full day package, reserve your spot as space is limited. While it’s a good idea to have in mind the top two events that you’d like to do, the selection of the exact tours that you will do on your package 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.

Please note that the horseback riding that is included with the packages is the one hour ride. The two hour ride is only available as a stand-alone event and is only offered in the afternoon.

For those utilizing the ranch’s transportation from Waikiki, pickup is between 7am and 8am depending on your hotel. Those driving themselves to the ranch for one of the packages should allow one hour for the drive from Waikiki and arrive no later than 8:30am.
