Kualoa Steps Up Its Ranch Tour Experience

If you think you’ve experienced all the Windward side has to offer, think again.

Kualoa Ranch now offers an all-day Experience PASS that grants visitors unlimited access to eight different tours spread throughout its 4,000 acres.

Among them is its award-winning Movie Sites and Ranch tour of locations where TV shows like

Hawaii Five-0 have been filmed. The tour was among the top 10 movie tours of 2011 in the United States, according to travelers and editors on TripAdvisor.

Additional tours include the Jungle Expedition, Legends and Legacy, and the Ancient Hawaiian Fishpond and Garden tour.

Guests also can join the ranch for dinner to experience a Hawaiian-style meal with live entertainment. The menu includes macadamia nut-crusted mahi mahi, grilled island chicken and a selection of sides and desserts, including fresh-baked banana bread. The evening ends with entertainers who share the legends of Kualoa through ancient Hawaiian chants and hula.

Currently, dinner and entertainment are offered Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, but will expand to daily shows April 1.

The Kualoa PASS costs $69 for adults, and $29 for children ages 3-12. The PASS with dinner costs $109 for adults and $49 for children, and $89/$39 for kamaaina.
