The Basics

There are a number of options for exploring the North Shore. Head to the water for a surfing or stand-up paddle board lesson, a sunset catamaran cruise, or a shark cage diving excursion. On land, tour the area’s rich farms, hike to Waimea Valley Falls, explore the fields and jungles of Kualoa Ranch, or see the island from above on a helicopter tour. While many tours leave from nearby Waikiki, it’s also possible to visit the North Shore on a day trip from Honolulu. Some full-day excursions include visits to Pearl Harbor, Hanauma Bay State Park, or the Dole Plantation.

Zipline Tour On Oahu's North Shore
It was so exciting to be flying through the air with the beautiful ocean in the distance. The guides were so professional, fun and complete experts! I always felt safety was first. It was fun to also learn to do some special tricks while ziplining towards the end when you felt more confident. It was an amazing experience! Highly recommend!

Full-Day North Shore Activities Tour from Oahu
This trip was great and definitely worth the price. There are a few things you don’t stop at anymore in the Viator “what to expect” list due to covid, new laws, or new regulations but trust me you won’t be disappointed by everything you get to do on this trip. The guide is super accommodating to making sure you do the activities you want to do. Also super informative! You learn SO much about Hawaiian history, it’s really special.

Oahu Highlights, Turtles & North Shore - Small Group Circle Island Tour
Our Tour Guide Sierra was very knowledgeable, fun, enthusiastic, and friendly. She took us around the 3/4 of the Island and gave great detail. Her actually being a native made our experience authentic.

Surf Lessons on the North Shore of Oahu
Fun, fantastic, and just wonderful! The teachers were the best! It had been one of my bucket list items to surf in my 40's, and the instructors gave me confidence, showed great compassion, and were cheerleaders the whole way through! I was able to catch a wave on my first try! My whole family successfully surfed, and It was an amazing day! I highly recommend Sunset Suzy's Surf Camps and Surf lessons!

Zory was an excellent teacher, I'm 31 and have never surfed before and I was able to do it!! I had a blast!! I wish I would've done this at the beginning of my vacation so I could come back. Also, as a bonus I got to see a giant sea turtle!

North Shore Oahu Snorkeling Tour
Literally the BEST activity we did during our week on Oahu! Captain Kev & Jarvis were beyond awesome, in their knowledge, assistance and upbeat personalities. Great boat ride and stellar snorkeling. If you're on the fence about who to to with LOOK NO FURTHER than Ocean Outfitters, they are the real deal.

How to Get There

Oahu’s North Shore stretches for more than seven miles (11 kilometers) and is located 30 miles (48 kilometers) from downtown Honolulu. During winter, the one-way road along the North Shore’s “seven-mile miracle” of popular surf beaches can back up for hours, so it’s best to visit on a tour to avoid the hassle of driving and parking.

When to Get There

The North Shore’s summer and winter seasons each have their benefits. In summer, seas are calm and you can to take beginner surf lessons, go kayaking, or enjoy some of Hawaii’s best snorkeling. Winter is the busiest time to visit, when expert surfers hit the waves and other visitors stick to the safety of land. If you opt for a winter visit, it’s best to arrive early (before 9am) to score a parking spot.
