Kualoa Ranch and Chinaman’s Hat Video

Yesterday was too gorgeous not to get out of the office! We headed to Kualoa Ranch where the Koolau Mountains are at their best–majestic, tall and commanding. We met up with one of our Hawaii tour groups on the Oahu Circle Island Eco Tour. (Click here to learn more about the Full Day Circle Island Eco Adventure Tour.)

Kualoa Ranch Tours

Kualoa Ranch offers a variety of fun things to do on Oahu, like horseback riding and ATV adventures through the valley. We recently launched a variety of easy-to-book tours at Kualoa, including:
  • Horseback
  • ATV
  • Movie Sites & Ranch
  • Jungle Expedition
  • Ocean Voyaging
  • Secret Island (includes Ocean Voyaging Tour and counts as two 1-hour tours)
  • Ancient Fishpond & Gardens
  • Legends & Legacy
  • Hula Lessons
If there’s one lesson everyone learns when they’re vacationing in Hawaii, it’s to be prepared for the sun! We recommend wearing sunscreen and bringing drinking water on your day trips. Don’t forget your sunglasses and a camera, too!

Secret Island at Kualoa

One secluded area on Windward Oahu that is owned and operated by Kualoa Ranch is Secret Island, which requires access via boat ride and has a beautiful, quiet beach where you can swim, sunbathe, and kayak. While on the Secret Island Boat Ride, look “mauka” (toward the mountains) for a stunning view of Oahu’s Koolau Mountain Ridge. Check out more on our previous blog post.

The scenic drive home

Leaving Kualoa, highway 63 will take you either North toward La’ie or South toward Kailua. It’s one of the most scenic drives on Oahu–along the way you’re right next to the beach or directly below mountains. It’s one of my favorite highways on Oahu!
