Whether you are looking for an outdoor adventure in Oahu or the stunning spots famously filmed for hit movies and TV shows like Jurassic Park, King Kong and Lost, the ATV Tour in Kualoa Ranch is a MUST in the Oahu itinerary. We love riding ATVs but add that with 2 hours of off-road terrain and breathtaking sceneries of valleys, this ATV tour reaches a different level of amazing experience. Feel the rush and be ready to get dirty!
For the best experience, join the 2-Hour Single Passenger ATV Tour.
We enjoyed the tour so much and considering the vast size of the nature reserve, 1 hour might not be enough. There is, however, an age restriction for this tour. You should be at least 16 years old to drive. For families traveling with kids or if you want to ride in pairs, you could tour the Kualoa Ranch with the Multi-Passenger 4WD ATV Tour.
Don’t fret, there is a short video for safety briefing and the do’s and don’ts.
Every tour also has a tour guide. Our group consisted of 3 pairs and the guide. After the briefing, helmets and ATVs are provided. If you have a GoPro, you could attach it to the helmet.
It took me a few minutes to get used to driving the ATV. Once we started the engines, there was no test drive. We drove up and down the road. I eventually got the hang of it when we arrived at our first stop.
First Stop: World War II Bunker
This World War II bunker is built into the side of a mountain. It was interesting to see this important piece of Hawaii’s history. There were old articles framed on the walls of the bunker and a room that contained memorabilia of the war. The room looked like it was left exactly how it was during the war.
Some of the rooms in the bunker were turned into a “Hollywood museum” with props from the famous movies and TV shows filmed in Kualoa Ranch.
At the end of this stop, our tour guide gave us time to admire and take photos of the ocean view.
Second Stop: Kualoa Mountain Ridge
After driving through the forest, we reached a higher ground that gave remarkably, stunning views! Imagine, you will get a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean, the beautifully-carved mountain ridge and a lush forest.
Third Stop: Meadows
The meadows reminded me of lovely landscape paintings. There are trees, grass and cows. It also has the mountain ridge as the background. It was also a gorgeous day during our tour which resulted to a bright blue sky with fluffy clouds.
Dirt, Climbs and Dives
It was a THRILL traversing the mud and going up and down the terrain! Our group drove faster than the other groups we passed by. We had to ramp up the speed several times.
