Activity Information

Oahu Rainforest Walk & Coastal Odyssey

On this tour we take you on a journey to explore the finest natural areas that Oahu has to offer. Begin the day in a verdant mountain rainforest, and then spend the afternoon exploring one of Hawaii’s finest coastal areas. A personalized tour that highlights unique cultural and scenic sites, this custom eco-adventure will give you a sense of Hawaii’s natural history and a cultural perspective of the Hawaiian way of life in days of old.

Your adventure starts with a 1.6 mile R/T hike to world famous Mänoa Falls. This 200-foot tall tropical waterfall is the tallest accessible waterfall on Oahu — its spectacular natural beauty defies the imagination. Rainbows are commonly seen through the misty Mänoa rainforest during the hike, which is rated as moderate.

After the hike, we will travel south, past the outer slopes of Diamond Head Crater down Oahu's Ka Iwi coastline beyond the Lanei Lookout. Your journey will include a stop at the Spitting Cave, a hidden gem along Oahu's south side coastline. At this site you will marvel in wonder at the breathtaking sea cliffs. Spectacular views of the coastline are clearly visible as we drive the scenic and winding drive along Kalaniana'ole Highway to the Halona 'Blow Hole' and beach featured from the classic motion picture: "From Here To Eternity."

After our visit to these unique Hawaiian lookout points and cultural sites, we travel to Sandy Beach where you can enjoy the warm, turquoise waters and coral reefs that Hawaii is famous for. At the beach you can simply relax, swim, and enjoy the ambiance of the place. You’ll also be blessed with a view of nearby Molakai, often called the "Friendly Island;" another of the many islands in the Hawaiian archipelago, and learn about how the aloha spirit flourishes there.
