Waimea Bay Tours and Activities

star-5
3,292 reviews

Welcome to one of the most iconic places on O’ahu Island! Combining popular culture, history and extreme sports, Waimea Bay simply does not disappoint. Its stunning panoramas alone, as seen from the Kamehameha Highway, are sufficient reason to visit the island’s northern end! The area’s international reputation emerged in 1779, when famous Captain James Cook was killed by native villagers after he tried to make the King of Hawaii captive. Staples of this period are still visible today at the Pu'u o Mahuka Heiau State Monument, the largest of its kind on the island.

Many years later, Waimea Bay beach once again gained popularity by becoming the top surfing destination in the world and officially starting the 1950s now-iconic surf phenomenon (as demonstrated by the Beach Boys’ famous song!). In fact, surfing is still very much in fashion in this neck of the woods, with numerous surfing events taking place throughout the year, especially during big wave season between November and February. Alternatively, it is a very nice place to swim and sunbathe during the calmer summer months. Waimea Bay beach even made it to the small screen as a filming location for acclaimed seriesLost.

star-5
2643
This whole day tour will spend 70% of our time doing beach activities on the North Shore. Guests will have the option to Swim, Kayak or Paddle Board, or do a Waterfall Hike, which have some of the most breathtaking sights and where Jurassic Park, Jumanji, Here to Eternity, and 51st Dates had been filmed. The other 30% of the time is spent sightseeing both the East and North-East Shores. Encompassed in beauty and splendor, the Hanauma coastline is a destined location for popular movies such as Jurassic Park, Jumanji, Blue Hawai’i, Here to Eternity and 51st Dates. Due to the Pandemic & recent changes to Hanauma Bay State Park policy, we are not able to take guests to Hanauma Bay for snorkeling at this time. When commercial activities are reinstated at the Bay we will resume that tour.
