Oahu North Shore

Kamehameha Highway, Haleiwa, 96712

The Basics

There are a number of options for exploring the North Shore. Head to the water for a surfing or stand-up paddle board lesson, a sunset catamaran cruise, or a shark cage diving excursion. On land, tour the area’s rich farms, hike to Waimea Valley Falls, explore the fields and jungles of Kualoa Ranch, or see the island from above on a helicopter tour. While many tours leave from nearby Waikiki, it’s also possible to visit the North Shore on a day trip from Honolulu. Some full-day excursions include visits to Pearl Harbor, Hanauma Bay State Park, or the Dole Plantation.

Zipline Tour On Oahu's North Shore
Great activity! This was a family trip. Those of us who had zip lined before said this was the best one ever. Safety was a priority! The guides, Wes, Haley, and Carter, entertained us with their jokes and knowledge of the Hawaiian islands while maintaining their professionalism. Must do!

Full-Day North Shore Activities Tour from Oahu
The waterfall is beautiful. You are able to see plants/flowers from around the world on the way to the waterfall. Once there, you’re able to swim and reach the waterfall to take a few pictures. The kayaking is calm, and overall it does take about 10 hours of the day. Definitely worth the trip.

North Shore Circle Island Adventure Including Snorkeling with the Turtles
This was an amazing trip. I had a fantastic day where the group was small (18) and the guide Kurt and driver Tiho were funny, knowledgeable and created this atmosphere so we made the beat memories. By the end of the day it felt a bit like family. The snorkeling was great. Saw a few turtles up close . The lunch was amazing and the other stops showed us bit of the island away from Waikiki. Absolutely recommend this. Thanks Kurt and Tiho you were amazing.

I regret doing this on my last day. Awesome tour and activities around 2/3 of the Island in one day! They want me to say more for this review, I would just recommend avoid Mexican food and bring an aquatic devices for documentation.

How to Get There

Oahu’s North Shore stretches for more than seven miles (11 kilometers) and is located 30 miles (48 kilometers) from downtown Honolulu. During winter, the one-way road along the North Shore’s “seven-mile miracle” of popular surf beaches can back up for hours, so it’s best to visit on a tour to avoid the hassle of driving and parking.

When to Get There

The North Shore’s summer and winter seasons each have their benefits. In summer, seas are calm and you can to take beginner surf lessons, go kayaking, or enjoy some of Hawaii’s best snorkeling. Winter is the busiest time to visit, when expert surfers hit the waves and other visitors stick to the safety of land. If you opt for a winter visit, it’s best to arrive early (before 9am) to score a parking spot.
