Polynesian Adventure Tours, a family-owned and locally operated company, was founded in 1977 by Bob George and Don Brown, starting with a small fleet of vans. Over our 44-year journey, we have earned a stellar reputation for our unwavering commitment to operational excellence, exceptional driver guides, modern and comfortable vehicles, and a genuine “Spirit of Aloha” that greets every traveler. Throughout our history, we’ve upheld a deep sense of Ohana, symbolizing family and unity in the Hawaiian language.
Today, Polynesian Adventure Tours stands as a highly respected operator of sightseeing tours across the four main Hawaiian islands. Our offerings encompass the awe-inspiring Haleakala Sunrise and the captivating Road to Hana on Maui, extensive tours of Pearl Harbor and the historic Battleship USS Missouri on Oahu, and thrilling day excursions to the magnificent Volcanoes National Park on Hawai’i Island. Our Kauai tours take you to the famous movie filming locations in Waimea Canyon.
In addition to our standard tours, we specialize in custom groups and private transportation charters, partnering with esteemed companies in the travel industry. We’re also the preferred charter bus operator for schools, churches, corporate groups, sports teams, and conventions. Over the years, we’ve proudly showcased Hawai’i’s beauty to countless cruise guests, making us the top choice for cruise lines calling on Hawai’i’s ports.
Beyond tourism, we deeply value our connection to the local community and a’ina (land) and are passionate about educating visitors to Hawai’i. Our drivers/guides are not just experts; they’re storytellers, sharing the Mo’olelo, or stories, of Hawai’i’s culture and history. We invite you to join us on this incredible journey as we share the Mo’olelo of Hawai’i and create lasting memories together.
We recognize the use of linguistic markings of the (modern) Hawaiian language including the ‘okina [‘] or glottal stop and the kahakō [ō] or macron (e.g., in place names of Hawai‘i such as Lāna‘i). We recognize the importance of using these markings to preserve the indigenous language and culture of Hawai‘i and strive to use them in all forms of communications.
