  • We did the Secret Island activity and had a great time. Staff were very friendly and professional. They had a good selection of kayaks, SUP boards, etc, and we enjoyed a double-hulled canoe ride out to a sand reef as well as some beach volleyball. You can change clothes after your excursion for the ride back.

  • We recently went to Hawaii and one of the activities we did was the Kualoa Ranch ” half day private beach activities.” It was so worth it and glad our group did this. Our host and the rest of the staff were all friendly and professional and very accommodating—from check in process to the actual tour/activities. HIGHLY RECOMMEND… relaxing and just enjoyed the beach. My daughter was able to do paddle boat and kayaking and we did the canoe, my husband and I enjoyed the hammock, too. THANK YOU !!! You guys Rock!

  • This ranch was probably the best part of our honeymoon! We booked through our go passes and upgraded to a second tour on an additional day. We enjoyed the Secret Island, Boat Tour & Jurassic Park Experience. We loved the beautiful valley, Hollywood history and the relaxation and fun beach activities on the Secret Beach Island. The staff were all so friendly and shared great advice for other activities and luaus across the island. Their horses were also very friendly and loved some head scratches lol we will be returning next time we visit Oahu to take the ATV tour and probably return to the secret island again. Sooo much fun for all ages!

  • We went on the half day excursion to the Secret Island and it did not disappoint! We had access to paddle boards, kayaks, volleyball, ping pong and we even took a canoe ride out to the sand bar. The beach was beautiful and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. This was my second time visiting the Secret Island and I plan to visit again.

  • Great for families with young children. There is a bus that takes you from the ranch (you can take your own car also) to a dock where you get on a little Hawaiian boat to the other side of a lake. When dropped off, you are greeted by a tour guide who walks you to the beach spot. There is enough shade and the SUP/Kayak rentals were a blast. (not to mention if you were to rent either of these separately on island, it can cost 60/hr so this in itself was worth it!) You need to bring your own towels, water, and food. Everything else is enough for a good beach day. The half day excursion was not long enough, we could have spent all day there!!

  • WOW! What a beautiful place! My friend and I had so much fun going to the Secret Island. We even got to ride a boat out into the bay where we saw sea turtles. The view of the mountains is breath-taking, especially when you are out on the water. I would recommend Kualoa Ranch to everyone, especially for a wedding. Can’t wait to go back there again!

  • Secret beach

    “Kualoa secret beach was one of our favorite must do In Oahu! We were able to use the kayaks, paddle boards, canoes, and a quick sail with great view of Kaneohe Bay and a Mokolii Island (Chinaman’s Hat). We took the double canoe ride and paddled to the center of the cove where the water was waist deep and soft sand touching the bottom of our foot. There were hammocks, beach chairs, and volleyball available on the beach front. The restroom on was immaculate with ️ ️ ️ ️ ️ rating. Bring a picnic lunch and your favorites bubbles so you could have lunch. Whether you want an active day or just soak up the sun you could at this secret of paradise. Will definitely do this again when we go back to Oahu.”


  • Great Start to an amazing Hawaii trip We made the trip out to the ranch the day after we arrived in Waikiki. They picked us up at our hotel in a charter bus and drove us out. It took about one hour. What a great introduction to the island!

  • Kualoa Ranch is a most beautiful piece of this planet. Wonderful scenery & back country trips.
    We did the 2 hour ATV tour in the Kualoa valley while at the Kualoa Ranch. This brings you back into one of the most beautiful areas of this planet. This is where many movies have been made & there are parts of the movie sets still remaining.

  • VIP Movie Tour . . . . Fantastic
    Took the air conditioned, VIP movie tour with George as our guide. The tour is two+ hours and is full of information about Kualoa Ranch, Hawaiian culture, and filming done at the ranch. I knew we would see movie and TV items but didn’t know I would learn what an Ahupua’a is (go on the tour and find out for yourself). Kinda cool. The views on the tour are incredible. The are many opportunities to get out of the van to take pictures of the vistas and movie sites and props. In fact, this is the only tour that lets you get out at some of the sites. George was very knowledgeable about the films/TV shows shot at the ranch. Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, Snatched, George of the Jungle, Tears of the Sun, Kong Skull Island, Godzilla, 50 First Dates, Windtalkers, Lost, Hawaii 5-0, etc. We were able to see sites and props from each as well as hear about filming and how it was done. There was never a time where I was bored or not interested in what was going on. I have been to Oahu many, many times and have never done this tour. What a mistake. I must say that on this latest trip to the island this tour was, by far, my favorite activity. Well done, George, and Kualoa Ranch!
