NOTE: This tour will no longer be offered in 2015.

Travel to Oahu's central plain for a half day tour of Hawaii's only remaining pineapple plantation and the island's beautiful north shore. When you arrive at the Dole Plantation you'll board the "Pineapple Express" for a 20 minute narrated train ride through the working pineapple plantation. You will learn about the history of the world's most popular tropical fruit, and hear how James Dole founded the plantation exactly where it stands today. Along the way you will pass fields of pineapple that often represent all stages of growth in the lifecycle of this fascinating plant.

Following your train ride, you may tour the Dole Garden or challenge your problem solving skills in the Dole Maze, the world's largest outdoor maze formed from shrubbery and plants. Of course time is also alotted for you to taste some fresh field ripened fruit and shop in the Dole visitor's center. The cost of admission for the train ride is included in the tour price. For a small extra charge guests may also add the Dole Garden tour or the Dole Maze.

Following your pineapple plantation visit, the tour continues past Haleiwa town and North Shore surfing beaches at Waimea Bay and Sunset Beach. You will continue around the northern tip of the island past Laie Town, Kahana Valley, and stop for a photo at the famous landmark known as "Chinaman's Hat" which is a small islet off Oahu's windward coast. Finally, you will drive through a tunnel in the spectacular Ko'olau Mountain Range and return to your starting point.

Schedule: Tour offered Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Morning pickup is between 8:15am and 8:35am. Approximate return is 2:00pm. (In 2014 two new stops are added at the Green World Coffee farm and turtle viewing at Alii Beach. The tour will be one hour longer and return approximately 3pm).

Attire and Advisory: Dress comfortably and wear good walking shoes. A refreshment stop is made en route and food and drinks are available for purchase.

ACTIVITY TIPS

If you've never tasted field ripened pineapple cut open and served fresh while it's still in the field, you've never REALLY tasted pineapple! This experience will make you want to go home and picket the produce department of your local grocery store for having the audacity to sell those flavorless pineapples produced in other parts of the world. The Pineapple Express train ride is a very popular event with children of all ages, even those over 21!

This half day tour is a great way to experience the Dole Plantation, as well as to take in some of the spectacular sights on Oahu's famous north shore. This excursion is operated by Enoa Tours and we enthusiastically recommend them for a number of reasons. Firstly, this tour company is only located on Oahu ... it is their specialty and they are experts on this island. Secondly, all of their guides are personable and knowledgable, certified by the state of Hawaii to conduct tours. Thirdly, and most important, their tours are conducted on 25 passenger minicoach vehicles with oversized windows for superior visibility, and NOT on giant 55 passenger buses! The big bus tours have a tendency to crawl along at a snails pace because it takes so long to get people on and off the vehicle at each stop. The more people you have on board, the better the chance someone is going to be slowing you down all day. With a smaller group, you spend more time seeing the sights and less time waiting to move on to the next stop. Also, the smaller group size gives you more personal interaction with your driver / guide.

I acknowledge that I have read the booking procedures below and wish to submit this reservation for processing.

Upon submitting your activity reservation for processing, one copy is sent to your e-mail address so that you have a record of your order. We will make reservations for you and send an e-mail confirming all of the details. These confirmations are often sent a few minutes after your reservation, but some activities take longer to confirm than others. You will receive an e-mail confirmation by the end of the next business day at the latest. There are no tickets that you need to pick up prior to your event. Your e-mail confirmation will have all the details you need to check in and enjoy your selected activity. This saves you precious time when you arrive in Hawaii. 

A credit card is required to guarantee payment for your reservations, but in most cases WE DO NOT charge your credit card when your order is placed. Your credit card is typically charged five days before you leave for Hawaii, and a voucher is faxed to the vendor. Some activities are charged at the time of check-in and your e-mail confirmation will inform you if this is the case. If you cancel your activity after your credit card has been charged you will receive a refund less 10% to cover our credit card processing costs.

We do have one vendor that requires payment at the time that your reservation is made. These activities are clearly marked on our website with the words, "Payment required at the time of reservation."

After making reservations, you may reschedule or cancel your activity up until 48 hours prior to its start (a few activities have 72 hour cancellation policies ... see your confirmation e-mail for details). Within 48 hours of the start of your activity all reservations are final and non-refundable (unless the event is cancelled by the vendor due to weather or other factors). Due to our incredible climate here, weather cancellations are rare.  No-shows and cancellations without adequate notice are charged in full on the credit card used to secure the reservation and are non-refundable.
