Waikiki Pickup (7:00 am – 7:30 am)

Our semi-private shuttle will arrive at 7 am for pick up in Waikiki, with a local guide to help you prepare for a day of exploring the island of Oahu. Pick-up times vary by hotel and will be automatically assigned when you input your information into our online booking platform.

Greenworld Coffee Farms

We head straight up to the North Shore after pick up in Waikiki and make a stop at Greenworld Coffee Farms which offers a wide array of coffee and tea Samples daily for guests. A great way to refresh and grab a cup of coffee made from the beans of one of the 3000+ Arabica trees on the 7 acres of Greenworld Coffee Farm before heading to the Dole pineapple fields.

Dole Pineapple Fields and Pack House

Now for the first time, visitors can venture into the Dole ’s Royal Hawaiian Gold Pineapple farm with one of our local guides to witness skilled field workers planting and harvesting the sweet, iconic DOLE Pineapples. This truly immersive experience will have the guest both on and off the bus, walking with our guide through the fields and pineapple pack house to see the whole process Dole has perfected.

This one-of-a-kind Oahu experience will even include guest sampling of Dole’s unique variety of pineapple straight from the fields. Before leaving each guest will receive a complimentary Dole Royal Hawaiian Gold Pineapple to take home.

Local Food Truck for Lunch

North Shore is well known for its food truck delicacies and our tour will stop at one of these culinary gems for lunch (Vegetarian options will be available). Guests must bring cash for lunch

Waialua Sugar Mill

After lunch, guests can navigate The Waialua Sugar Mill, formally known as the Chamberlain Plantation, a sugarcane plantation and historical sugar mill, located in the town of Waialua. It was in operation from 1865 until 1996. Popular stops to visit are the “soap factory” and “surfboard shop” found inside the old mill.

North Shore Beach Photo Stop and Turtle spotting

A trip to the North Shore without a stop at the beach is not a trip to the North Shore. Our guide will take the guests to a location where they can witness the beauty of a world-renowned North Shore Hawaiian beach and take photos to send back to family and friends back home. There are usually Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles on the beach as well. Turtle sightings are not guaranteed but are often seen. (There is no Swimming at the beach).

Hawaiian Coffee samples, Macadamia Nut Tastings, and Acai Bowl Stand

Next to Historic Haleiwa Town lies a hidden culinary gem, a local Macadamia shop that finds itself tucked away under the comforting shade of an aged Banyan tree. The macadamia nuts here are sourced from the foothills of Oahu’s tallest peak, Mt. Kaala, from an orchid comprising over 1200 macadamia nut trees on 24 acres. These are the freshest macadamia nuts on the whole island of Oahu, creating a wonderful edible experience as you continue your day trip into the history of Hawaiian agriculture. Other culinary delights located here include authentic North Shore Acai Bowls or tasty Kona coffee samples.

Old Haleiwa Town

Our last stop on the North Shore is a step back in time to one of Oahu’s oldest towns. Originally built as a home for immigrant sugar plantation workers, Haleiwa is now a quaint surf town, filled with a variety of boutique shops, surf shops, and shaved ice stops. As time has passed, the state has set up architectural guidelines requiring the design of existing buildings and newly erected buildings to reflect the plantation-style architecture of the early years of Haleiwa’s sugar industry which makes it a refreshing stop away from the bustling streets and tall buildings of Waikiki.

King Kamehameha Statue

Before returning to Waikiki and dropping off the guests, our guide will stop to see the King Kamehameha Statue. A perfect way to tie in some additional Hawaiian history on top of the agricultural lineage that they have just experienced through the day on the North Shore Dole Pineapple Tour.
