Nicknamed the “Gathering Place,” the island of Oahu is the most visited island in the Hawaiian archipelago and for good reason – here you will find the most entertainment choices and things to to in Hawaii. The island caters to a wide variety of interests. Oahu tours range from land-based island sightseeing tours to air tours and activities in and around the ocean, such as snorkeling and scuba diving, as well as dolphin and whale watch tours.
Some of the most popular Oahu tours take you to Hawaii’s No. 1 attraction – Pearl Harbor. Visiting this world-famous historic site is a must-do for all visitors to the island. Explore fascinating exhibits and memorabilia from World War II and step on board the Arizona Memorial which was built right on top of the sunken battleship and pay tribute to the brave men resting below. The Pacific Aviation Museum and the USS Bowfin submarine are two further Pearl Harbor attractions that are well worth a visit.
Popular Oahu Tours
The 40 miles long and 26 wide piece of Hawaiian paradise that is Oahu is the location of the state’s largest city and capital – Honolulu. Even though Oahu is the most visited and populated of the Hawaiian islands, you can still find serenity and that special beauty that brings people from all over the world to the land of Aloha. Experience an Oahu nature tour that takes you to the island’s off-the-beaten-path locations. Hike deep into a rainforest to a secluded waterfall, or visit an ancient site, also known as a heiau, in Hawaii.
Oahu island sightseeing tours that circle the entire island are also very popular among visitors because they take you to all of the island’s top attractions, including the famous big wave surfing beaches on the North Shore, the Dole Plantation and the scenic windward (east) coast of the island. This side of the island also offers great views of the majestic Koolau Mountains and beautiful sandy bays. As there is more rainfall on Oahu’s windward coast, the vegetation is lush and even jungly! Here you can see chickens taking a walk on the street. The beautiful windward beaches of Kailua and Waimanalo with their shallow turquoise waters are inviting to swimmers and snorkelers, as well as kite boarders and kayakers. The leeward (western) side of Oahu is dryer and not as green. The beaches here offer great surfing in the winter and snorkeling in the summer.
Other top Oahu tours are air tours of the island – both with a helicopter or seaplane. If you like photography, a helicopter tour allows you to see exciting new vantage points of the island. If you love water-based activities, choose one of Oahu’s fun snorkel or scuba diving tours and explore the magnificent coral gardens, caves and lava rock arches.
