Don’t forget…
Sharks Cove snorkelling (North Shore)
Sunset Beach & Banzai Pipeline Beach (North Shore May - Sep for swimming)
Ted’s Bakery (a famous North Shore bakery close to Sunset Beach)



Across the street from Kualoa Ranch is Kualoa Beach Park, where you can see “Chinaman’s Hat” island- lots of people pull over there to take that goofy picture of the island positioned behind you so it looks like you’re wearing the hat.

Also down the road is Tropical Farms macadamia nut farm, where you can sample locally made coffee, mac nuts, coconut peanut butter, hot sauces, and even hand crack your own macadamia nuts for free out back, where they have nuts, a few tree stumps, and rocks to smash them with. Kids love that!

If you’re out west, around Ko Olina, check out Ko Olina Lagoons. They’re “four jewel-like lagoons connected by more than a mile and a half of seaside pathways” Make sure to go early!



Here are two more…

K1 Racing Go Karts

  • One challenging track
  • Adult and Junior electric karts
  • Nightclub-style lighting
  • Three meeting rooms with A/V connections
  • Glo Karting™

Coral Crater Adventure Park

  • Zipline

  • Sunset Dinner with Snorkel
  • Aerial Challenge Course
  • Off-road Go Kart Adventures

This North Shore day tour is perfect for families with kids- instead of booking those “full day drive around the island” island tours, Kevo’s goes directly to the North Shore :slight_smile:

Plenty of beach time at Pipeline Beach, Waimea Bay, 1hr snorkel with turtles, lunch and paddle board/kayak in Haleiwa along side the Anahulu rive and Rainbow bridge, & a pineapple ice cream stop at Dole plantation.

Use our promo code “matesrate” when booking online and save 25% off both our Standard and Gold packages.

It’s time to let kids be kids & us adults to play like kids :sunglasses:

Surf lessons in Waikiki! I specialize in children’s surfing lessons- there’s nothing like seeing the stoke on their faces the first time they stand up and ride a wave. Aloha!
