Far from the city of Honolulu and the hussle and bussle of Waikiki lie two of the most sacred valleys on our island.
In ancient times, Ka’a’awa and Hakipu’u valleys were home to Hawaiian royalty and considered a place of refuge and sanctuary. Today, these two valleys are part of the 4000 acre Kualoa Ranch on the east side of Oahu. Ranch terrain varies from dense rainforest to open valleys to steep cliffs to white sand beaches and private islands.
Besides being the site for television shows like LOST and Hollywood Films such as Jurassic Park and 50 First Dates, it is the perfect place for outdoor enthusiasts looking to do some exciting activities while also gaining deeper insight into the islands culture and heritage.
Explore the valleys by horseback or ATV, ravage through the jungles and learn about Kualoa’s vast history, take a tour of the ancient Hawaiian fishponds that sustained them for centuries, sail Kaneohe bay to visit china mans hat, or take a movie site tour to see the sets of famous Hollywood films.
If that’s not enough, you can also take private tours to secret island to kayak, canoe, and relax or venture deep into the back roads of the valleys to explore historic ancient Hawaiian sites and hikes not offered on regular tours. The private tours (Kualoa Royal Experience and Secret Island Tour) are perfect if you want an intimate experience with your party. Otherwise I highly recommend the ATV tour to gain some breathtaking views, the movie site tour to check out famous movie and television locations, the jungle tour to explore the sacred lands and acquire some history and knowledge of Kualoa, and the Ocean voyaging tour to sail Kaneohe bay for spectacular views of the island.
Tip: The difference between the Full/Half Day Adventure Package and Kualoa Experience Package is that the Kualoa Experience package exclude horseback riding and ATVing from the tour choices. Thus I highly recommend the Adventure Packages!
