Waikiki Pickup (7:00 – 7:30 am)
Our semi-private shuttle will arrive between 7:00-7:30 am for pickup in Waikiki. A local guide will be on hand to help you prepare for an exciting day of exploring the fantastic locations across the island of Oahu. Pickup times vary by hotel and will be automatically assigned when you input your information into our online booking platform.
Green World Coffee Farm
After pickup in Waikiki, we head straight up to the North Shore for a stop at Green World Coffee Farm offering a wide array of daily coffee and tea samples for guests. A great way to begin the day or simply refresh and grab a cup of coffee made from the beans of one of the more than 3000+ Arabica trees on the seven acres of Green World Coffee Farm before heading to Dole’s pineapple fields.
Dole Pineapple Fields and Pack House
Now for the first time, visitors can venture into the Dole's Royal Hawaiian 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 Pineapple to take home.
Local Food Truck for Lunch
Oahu’s 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 as lunch is not provided by the tour.
Waialua Sugar Mill
Following lunch, guests can navigate through the grounds of The Waialua Sugar Mill, formally known as the Chamberlain Plantation; a more-than-a-century old 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
No trip to the North Shore is complete without a stop at the world-famous North Shore beaches. Our guide will take the guests to a location where they can witness the beauty of a world renown Hawaiian beach and surf spot. Here visitors can take photos to post or share with family and friends back home. (No Swimming)
Hawaiian Coffee Samples, Macadamia Nut Tastings, and Acai Bowl Stand
Next to Historic Haliewa 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 an orchard standing at the foothills of Oahu’s tallest peak, Mt. Kaala. The orchard spans 24 acres and is comprised of over 1200 macadamia nut trees. 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 and legacy of Hawaiian agriculture. Other culinary delights located here include authentic North Shore Acai Bowls or tasty samples of Kona coffee.
Old Haleiwa Town
One of our final stops on the North Shore is a step back in time to one of Oahu’s oldest towns. Originally developed as homes for immigrant sugar plantation workers, Haliewa is now a quaint surf town, filled with a variety of boutiques, surf shops, and shaved ice spots. To retain the charm the State of Hawaii has set up architectural guidelines requiring the design of existing structure renovations and newly erected buildings to reflect the plantation-style architecture of the early years of Haleiwa’s sugar industry which makes Old Haleiwa a refreshing stop away from the bustling streets and tall buildings of Waikiki.
King Kamehameha Statue
On our return to Waikiki our guide will make one last stop to see the great King Kamehameha Statue. Visiting the 18-foot bronze statue of the leader that united the Hawaiian Islands into one royal kingdom is 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.
Waikiki Return (4:00 – 4:30 pm)
Guests will be dropped off at their original pickup location around 4:00 to 4:30. We advise not to schedule other tours or activities on the same day of this tour.
