Travel with the island’s premier eco-tour company on an exciting journey of discovery to the famous North Shore of Oahu. Driving over the Ko’olai Mountains to the windward side, our first stop is the fabled Valley of the Temples where we visit the picturesque Byodo Temple located at the base of stunning 2,000 foot lush green cliffs.
Then we drive along the scenic shores of Kahana Bay arriving at Laie Point, a great oppurtunity to observe several native plant species while marveling at the breathtaking views of Kukuihoolua islet and the wild and rugged eastern-Oahu coastline.
Continuing North to Kahuku, we visit a shrimp farm to have lunch and see endangered water bird, including Black-neck stilts, Hawaiian coots and Moorhens. Our next stop is the world famous Sunset Beach where incredible waves thrill viewers, especially between November and April.
Following the stunning coastline of legendary Waimea Bay we stop at a well-known basking and feeding ground to look for wild Green Sea Turtles.
Traveling South we drive through the colorful and historic village of Haleiwa, home to many surfers, artist and craftspeople.
After passing extensive pineapple fields we arrive at our last stop, the historic Dole Plantation.
