The all-access tour pass lets guests take part in every Kualoa Experience Tour that the guides lead throughout the day, except for the Hakipu’u Hike. The popular Movie Sites & Ranch Tour, for instance, stops by the filming sites of Jurassic Park, Lost, and Godzilla. On other tours, six-wheel Swiss Pinzgauers roll groups into the jungles of the island, storytellers reveal why Kualoa is one of the most sacred places on Oahu, and hula dancers teach patrons how to dance as ancient Hawaiians did. After warming up their stomach muscles, guests escape to hidden private beaches for an afternoon of sunbathing or sail across Kaneohe Bay on a catamaran tour (offered Saturday only).

Those who choose an ATV or a horseback ride, which sojourn rain or shine, can select an additional one-hour tour through scenic valleys rife with panoramic mountains dressed in green. The ATV ride zips to each of the famous movie locations on the movie tour, whereas the horseback ride provides views of Mokoli'i Island and an 800-year-old fishpond.

Kualoa Private Nature Reserve

Sequestered between the rolling waves of the South Pacific and the primordial beauty of Kahana State Park’s rainforests, Kualoa Private Nature Reserve is the Platonic ideal of paradise. There, experienced guides lead expeditions into 4,000 acres of serene valleys and hills, stopping by famed movie sites from Jurassic Park or LOST, peering into an 800-year-old fishpond, and stopping horses or ATVs so that explorers can soak up the expansive views of southern O'ahu. Even the ranch itself is magnificent. Pavilions serve as pristine settings for guests to celebrate or yell at the sunset, nestled at the bottom of lush green mountains and on the edge of cliffs that overlook the tranquil waters of Kane'ohe Bay. Across that glimmering surface, a private, white-sand beach where guests sunbathe and lounge rests among mangroves and hau trees.

Regardless of their exact coordinates, the Ranch’s visitors experience Kualoa's rich history firsthand. A prime example of the benefits of continued preservation, Kualoa has been everything from a family getaway to a World War II airstrip, but the owners have always sought to maintain the beauty that set it apart. The tradition continues today, as employees participate in community-work projects focused on restoration, taro planting, and fostering a sense of Hawaiian pride for every visitor.

Customer Reviews

Had a great time. We go to Hawaii several times a year and we're getting tired of all the touristy stuff, but this was the one thing we hadn't done yet. Enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.
