About Us

Polynesian Adventure Tours was founded by Bob George and Don Brown in 1977 using a small fleet of vans. Today it is one of the largest and most successful tour and transportation companies in the State of Hawaii. It exclusively operates our popular sightseeing tours and charter operations from  bases on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and Hawaii Island.

During its 43-year history, Polynesian Adventure Tours has established a reputation for operational professionalism, its superb driver guides, comfortable late model vehicles, and being a friendly company that exudes the “Spirit of Aloha”. It has maintained a sense of Ohana, or “family” in the Hawaiian language, during more than decades of operation and changes in ownership. The family spirit of the company culture has been perpetuated under the ownership of Transportation Charter Services (TCS), which acquired the company in 2017.

Polynesian Adventure Tours is a highly regarded operator of sightseeing tours to the most sought-after locations on the four main islands, including breathtaking Haleakala Sunrise and Road to Hana tours on Maui. It provides the widest variety of tours to Pearl Harbor and the Battleship USS Missouri on Oahu, and regularly thrills guests with its day excursions to Volcanoes National Park on Hawaii Island, as well as its Kauai tours to Waimea Canyon and famous movie filming locations. In addition, Gray Line Worldwide selected Polynesian Adventure Tours as its sole sightseeing operator for the State.

Custom group charter tours are a specialty, and Polynesian Adventure Tours has been chosen as ground transportation partner by some of the most highly respected tour companies in the travel industry. It is a popular charter bus operator for school, church, incentive group, sporting events, and conventions. Nearly every cruise line whose ships call on Hawaii’s ports have selected Polynesian Adventure Tours as their preferred tour operator. As such, the company has shown Hawaii’s beauty to countless numbers of cruise guests for decades and today remains the industry’s top Hawaii shore excursion provider.

The safety and well-being of our guests, partners and local community is our top priority.  Therefore, in line with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations, and Governor Ige directives, Polynesian Adventure will temporarily suspend tour operations.  We will continue to follow the advice of the Office of the Governor and the CDC and will adjust our operations accordingly.
