Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour will begin at the 4,000-acre (1,619-hectare) Kualoa Ranch, situated on the northern coast of Oahu. Hop aboard a vintage bus with your guide to explore the expansive cattle ranch.

Hear commentary from your guide about the impressive list of films that have been shot throughout this landscape, such as 50 First Dates, Tears of the Sun and Pearl Harbor, and TV shows like Lost and Hawaii Five-O. See where a dinosaur chase took place in Jurassic Park and take a picture of Godzilla’s giant footprint.

Then, you’re off to Kaneohe Bay, Mokoli’i Island (Chinaman’s Hat) and the stunning mountains of Ko’olau Range, all of which were formed after the Ko’olau volcano erupted over 2.5 million years ago. The sparkling waters of Kaneohe Bay are also where Johnny Depp sailed aboard Queen Anne’s Revenge in Pirates of the Caribbean 4. Soak up the stunning views as you pass the iconic green backdrop of Ko’olau Range.

At the end of your tour, your guide will bring you back to your original departure point at the ranch.

Fun tour and completely worth it
, Jul 2021
It was an excellent get away from busy Honolulu, Kimo our tour guide was very good and kept us all entertained. We will come back someday to experience the other tours. The cafe offered some really good and affordable food. We took an Uber ride to and from the ranch, if you rent a car you can drive the rest of the area which was beautiful. Mahalo

What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! Great way to see part of the North Shore of Oahu while learning about movies, movie-making, Hawaiian history and culture, and Hawaiian preparations for WWII. Visit to a WWII bunker was very interesting. The wild beauty of the ranch reminds me of Kauai. The staff members were friendly and knowledgeable and there are many different options for tours.
Funny and exciting

The tour was fun however the driver drove to fast to take photos. And he didn’t let us out very many places. It was sort of disappointing, but fun too see.
