North Shore Beach Bus

  2. North Shore Beach Bus

North Shore Beach Bus combines the world famous North Shore & Hanauma Bay State Park into one tour that gives you the best of Oahu. Once we leave the hustle and bustle of busy Waikiki we head straight up the middle of the island and go directly to the North Shore where we allow our guests to spend time swimming, body boarding or just relaxing on an empty beach on the beautiful North Shore.

We stop at Waimea Bay, which was one of the filming locations used for the television series Lost, for an one hour of fun. Waimea has the fun and exciting “Jump Rock” which is a large hunk of lava that swimmers jump from. In the winter months Waimea Bay is also home to the famous Quiksilver Big Wave Invitational in memory of Eddie Aikau where some of the top professional Surfers in the world compete for the biggest prize in surfing. We then head to the world-famous Banzai Pipeline, filming location for the surfing movie “Blue Crush“, where we spend another relaxing hour.
