"Horse Riding and more at Kualoa Ranch" North Shore Tip by VeronicaG
North Shore, Oahu: 32 reviews and 43 photos
While at the North Shore, we were hoping to see a little of Kualoa Ranch. As we left the highway and drove up the long driveway, the setting gripped us--the ranch snuggled against a tall mountain range, which was etched with greenery and topped with clouds.
However, disappointment met us at the door because the ranch was closed.
Kualoa Ranch offers horseback riding, so it was no surprise to see a number of horses grazing in a pasture area. The one hour tour costs $59.00 and departs at 8am; the two hour tour costs $89.00-- kids must be at least 10 years old; weight limit under 230 pounds.
There is also a tour to the northern end of the ranch where movies such as Jurassic Park, Windtalkers, You, Me & Dupree, 50 First Dates and Lost were filmed. Other full and half day adventure tours/prices can be seen on the ranch's website below.
The ranch also offers ATV rentals for those 16 years of age and up: one hour rental is $59.00, two hours $89.00.
