Start your tour by discovering the scenic drive along Oahu's Leeward Coast. Locals refer to this scenic coast as the Westside, and you'll get several opportunities to take beautiful pictures of the landscape and skyline, including its gorgeous golden sand beaches. Your first stop takes you to Disney's Aulani Resort and Spa to see the taro ponds, a secluded art collection, and secluded coves. Here, learn why the taro plant was a key part of the Native Hawaiians' tradition and sustainability for centuries as well as get a chance to see "honu" or green sea turtles in the secluded coves, which locals consider seeing a honu as a sign of good fortune.
Next, your tour takes you the remote Yokohama Beach or Keawa' ula Beach, a beach known for its year-round high surfs and schools of squid that give the beach its translated name of "red bay." After capturing panoramic views along Yokohama Beach's shorelines and enjoying the beach, follow your guide and make your way to Makua Cave to explore 450-foot long caves that researchers believe to be more than 150,000 years old and locals associate with the demigod Kane. Your tour also makes a stop at the iconic Makaha Beach, where surfers flock to every year to ride the high tides for some of the best surfing in Hawaii. If the waves permit a safe experience, have the chance to enjoy the pristine waters of this iconic beach where lifeguards abound for peace of mind.
Conclude your tour with a stop to Pokai Bay, a local favorite. Thanks to its calm waters, golden sands, and picturesque skyline, Pokai Bay makes the ideal spot for swimming, relaxing in the sun, or enjoying a lunch on the beach. Wrap up your tour with a final stop for lunch at the famous A&G Steaks. This restaurant is known for delicious steak or seafood dishes, salads, and other locally-sourced foods to satisfy your appetite before heading back to the port in Honolulu.
