Pride of America Shore Excursions on Oahu

Oahu is unique with regard to the shore excursions available to the guests of Pride of America. It is the port where the cruise schedule begins and where it ends.  We offer the vast majority of these tours at excellent discounted pricing.

  • For this reason all activities and tours on Oahu are cruise ship compatible. You can virtually go on any tour that the island of Oahu has to offer by simply arriving on Oahu a night or two before the cruise is leaving or by departing from Oahu a night or two after the cruise is finished.

    The cruise ship industry has been a viable one in the islands for many years but has become even more popular in recent years. As such there are many people coming to Hawaii on cruise ships seeking shore excursion to experience the many beauties and adventures found on the islands.  A couple obstacles often stand in their way however: there are time and day restraints imposed upon which tours are available to them because of the arrival and departure times of the specific cruises. And secondly, the cruise line companies often provide certain shore excursion packages that will fit the time-lines of the ship's arrival and departures but these are always at full price and even 'full price plus' for the privilege of being able to make the booking directly through them... read more.

A lot of people come and visit Hawaii via cruise ship, and we are always getting asked questions by people that are coming if we could arrange their tours once they... their shore excursions and that sort of thing on the various islands. And we do. All the islands - Kauai and the Big Island and Maui, we well as Oahu for cruise ship passengers.

The way it works with us is that ... well, first of all, understand that you can buy these directly at whatever the cruise line is. They'll have certain things that you could buy in terms of shore excursions. Most people tell us that the excursions that we provide them are less costly, and also we unquestionably provide more options for the guests, for the cruise ships.

We have certain tours that will pick you up right at the cruise ship when it comes into board, whatever island you're on. And then we've gone through ... fastidiously gone through and checked all of the various tour options that we have that, in some way, could meet the criteria of happening within the span of time that these boats are in port. And some of these require actually Renting A Car. We can rent the car for you; we can provide that. And then we've gone through to make sure that you can get the car, and then you can get to the activity, you can enjoy the activity, and then have plenty of time to get back to return the car and still catch the boats. So, you can look on any of our island pages for the cruise ships, and you can see all of the different options - which you'll find are hundreds - of things that are available to you that you wouldn't otherwise know about. So we can organize all that for you.

On Oahu, it's actually a lot different and a lot easier because most of the boats that we have on Oahu will either start, or end, or both, their tours on the cruise ships there on Oahu. So, the way you handle the activities on Oahu is to simply do them a day or two before your cruise ship leaves, or a day or two after your cruise ship has come in. So, before the trip or after the trip. And at that point, you're just a regular person on Oahu, probably staying in a hotel for those couple of nights, and so virtually everything that's available on Oahu would be available to you, unlike the other islands that we have where the ports that the ships come in.

In any event, if you're on a cruise ship, you're looking for activities, we've got plenty of them. We probably have better pricing, and we probably have many, many more options.
