Oahu West Side Tour

$149 Per Person

Our Oahu West Side Tour takes you to some of the most beautiful and inspiring locations of Oahu’s Leeward Coast, or as residents not surprisingly call it, the “West Side.” The cultural history of the West Side is ancient and storied, but on this tour you’ll discover it’s secret – which is that it is home to some of the most beautiful beaches to be found anywhere in Hawaii.

This adventure provides guests with an opportunity to take in some of the most spectacular sights on Oahu in comfort and isolation from the COVID-19 pandemic. The tour is perfect for visitors new to Oahu, and for repeat visitors who have seen and done much of the most common activities on the island. The Oahu West Side Tour is not a typical guided tour of Oahu’s familiar attractions, but rather a journey to out of the way destinations most Oahu visitors never get to see.

Your morning jaunt to the West Side begins bright and early at 8:00am.  The first destination — Disney’s Aulani Resort and Spa to and it’s remarkable taro ponds where you’ll will learn about the sacred and vital tradition of taro that sustained native Hawaiians for hundreds of years. You’ll also be invited to peruse Aulani’s exquisitely curated art collection before we round off the stop with a casual stroll along the beach, meandering through secluded coves for photographs and, often, encounters with green sea turtles, or “honu”.


Wave goodbye to the turtles(if you were lucky enough to see some) and head up the coast to Keawa’ula Beach in the vast and remote Yokohama Bay. The beach’s name translates to “red bay” and was so named for the schools of squid that call the area home.  The West Side features more than just beaches though, and from here we’ll change things up and take a journey into darkness at the ancient, cathedral-like Makua Cave. This legendary location is steeped in tradition and your guide will fill you in on what makes this such a treasured location.

We know you didn’t come to Hawaii to spend all day in a cave though, so  we’ll take it to the next level and wrap up the day with visits to 2 more of the West Side’s most prized assets — Makaha Beach and Pokai Bay. Makaha Beach has long been the home of legendary surfers, featuring a strong rip that creates the high surf, but also can make conditions too dangerous for swimming, while Pokai Bay is off-the-beaten path, with calm and clear water that is always ideal for swimming, sunbathing and picknicking.
