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!

Josh, our tour guide, was amazing. He told us so many interesting facts about Hawaii and entertained us the entire tour. We loved snorkeling with the turtles. We even got lucky and saw a monk seal that was sleeping on the beach, I would highly recommend this tour.

Photo Adventure of The North Shore, Hawaii
If you only have one day in Oahu and enjoy getting out and about to experience nature, this is a must do! Mac was very welcoming and made the day an enjoyable experience. The group size of 7 was perfect and honestly works better than being just another number on a large tour, allowing for the day to be more personal and inclusive and largely avoiding the large swarms.

Horseback Trail Ride at North Shore Stables
North Shore Stables is so much more than just doing a trail ride. If you want something that’s not a commercialized tourist trap, go see these folks. They are doing amazing things out there. So worth the drive and time spent on the farm.

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.
