Tour 1: Hollywood Movie Sites & Ranch Tour
Head to Kualoa Ranch and journey through the world-famous valley of Kaaawa, where more than 50 Hollywood blockbuster films and television shows have been filmed - an area known as the “Hawaii Backlot”.
Established in 1850, Kualoa is a 4,000-acre working cattle ranch stretching from steep mountain cliffs to the sparkling sea. Located on the northeastern side of Oahu in the Hawaiian countryside, it's just 22 miles from Honolulu. The ranch terrain varies from dense rainforest to broad open valleys, and from beautiful white-sand beaches to verdant cliff faces. It's truly a paradise for outdoor recreation.
If the views look familiar, it's because Kualoa has been the site of many television shows and Hollywood films. On this tour you get an up close and personal view of backdrops from films, such as Godzilla, Jurassic Park, Windtalkers, 50 First Dates, Pearl Harborand many more.
After your tour into the valley, you visit will an authentic World War II bunker containing even more film memorabilia, artefacts and exhibits.
Tour 2: Mahina Moonlight Sail
Gaze at the shimmering water and twinkling lights as you glide across the deep blue sea with Mahina (Hawaiian for “moon”) guiding the way. Sip a glass of champagne or wine, a beer or a Mai Tai, and be entertained by your charming captain and crew. This moonlit cruise offers a feeling like no other as you sip a drink and enjoy the view from the boat. Along the way, admire the wonderful nighttime views of Diamond Head and Waikiki.
This evening cruise sails on Friday and other special nights only. On Friday night, you get to see the fireworks display off the Hilton Hawaiian Village.
Tour 3: Waikiki Surf Lesson
Team Ohana’s group lessons offer that perfect mix of individual attention in a team environment. Everyone improves and everyone has fun.
To start off your surfing experience, you'll be picked up at a convenient hotel pick-up location. You’ll be stoked to ride in an air-conditioned, clean, easy-to-spot, orange-and-black “surf school bus.” You'll then be shuttled to one of Waikiki’s best surfing spots located just outside of the foot traffic.
Once by the ocean, you’ll prepare in the comfort of the Mobile Command Center, a luxury, custom, Mercedes Benz Sprinter Van. After a safety briefing, get geared up with reef shoes, rash guard shirts and surfboards and then you are off to the beach!
When you get to the sand, there is a land lesson where you'll be walked through the basics. When you’re comfortable and ready, you'll leash yourself to the board and into the water we go! After the lesson, retreat to the shade of the on-site tent to relax, hang with the instructors, or enjoy the perspective of watching the waves you have just been riding! Check out your awesome efforts (photographs and videos) afterwards. Finally, you'll be driven you back to your drop-off location.
