Immerse Yourself in Hawaiian Style on North Shore Tour
Oahu’s North Shore is a place like no other. Experience the sights, sounds and tastes of an agricultural lifestyle! Inhale salty ocean air as brilliant blue waves crash nearby. Wiggle your toes in the wet sand. Savor sweet pineapple or a delicious cup of Hawaiian coffee. Enjoy the shade on a hot day as you ride through a tunnel of banana trees. In other words, completely immerse yourself in local Hawaiian style.
Enjoy 100% Hawaiian Java at Green World Coffee Farm
Ever drink 100 percent Hawaiian coffee? Skip that 10 percent variety commonly sold in stores. Experience the real stuff in all its aromatic glory at Green World Coffee Farm. Nestled in the saddle between the Ko’olau and Waianae mountain ranges, Green World is a seven-acre farm with about 2,000 coffee trees. You’ll see how coffee is grown, roasted and graded on its journey from tree to cup. And you’ll savor this aromatic brew at the farm’s Espresso Bar.
Historic Dole Plantation Where Pineapple is King
Your trip to Oahu’s North Shore isn’t complete without a stop at historic Dole Plantation. Learn how pineapple, Hawaii’s symbol of hospitality, played a key role in the 50th State’s agricultural and economic growth. Feed colorful koi in the fishpond. Ride the Pineapple Express train. Explore the world’s largest maze. And before climbing back aboard our air-conditioned mini-bus; enjoy a cool, sweet Dole Whip® pineapple treat.
Hang Loose in Laid-back Haleiwa Town
Colorful Haleiwa Town is the social and artistic hub of the North Shore. Hop off our mini-bus and discover historic old churches, charming boutiques, cool surf shops, eclectic art galleries. And, of course, shave ice stands. This is laid-back life in the country. You’ll be glad you came.
See, But Don’t Touch, Endangered Sea Turtles
The Hawaiian word for turtle is “honu.” These green sea turtles basking in the sun along North Shore beaches are an endangered and protected species. If you are lucky, your E Noa Tours guide will help spot some of these heavy-shelled creatures. Take lots of pictures but resist the urge to touch.
Farm to Fork? You’ll Find it Here
Discover “onolicious” island history at Kahuku Farms. Here you’ll find tropical fruits and local vegetables grown by two families who farmed in Hawaii for three generations. Tour this working farm on a tractor-pulled wagon ride through fields, flowers and the shade of a banana tree tunnel. Finish your visit with a complimentary fruit smoothie made with ingredients picked fresh from the farm.
Macadamia Nuts Galore at Tropical Farms of Hawaii
Our final stop of the day is family-owned Tropical Farms of Hawaii on Oahu’s Windward shore. This lovely setting overlooking Moliʻi Fishpond and the Pacific Ocean is steeped in gentle island spirit. This family-owned tropical fruit and plant farm began as a roadside operation in 1987. Today you’ll find an irresistible selection of homegrown macadamia nuts and cosmetic products.
As your E Noa guide continues sharing the history of this lush land, you’ll find yourself smiling as you journey back to Waikiki through the green and overgrown mountains. Fun for the whole family!
