On this cross-island trek, Hawaiian Escapades takes you back in time for a taste of life during Hawaii’s Plantation
Era — traveling from Pearl Harbor to the North Shore via the Central Plain — with stops at what remains of Oahu’s
glorious plantation days, "when Sugar was King."
As early as 1835, with the opening of its first sugar plantation, the Hawaiian Islands were becoming recognized
worldwide as prime agricultural land for growing a variety of products, particularly sugar cane and pineapple. Remnants
of this era can still be found around the island, including the worker camps at Waipahu, the pineapple fields of Wahiawa,
and the sugar mill at Waialua.
Today, much of the land reserved for these crops has been reclaimed for diversified agriculture. In addition to pineapple,
some of the agricultural products now successfully being grown on Oahu include coffee, tropical flowers, papaya, as
well as many others.
Hawaii’s Plantation Village — This outdoor museum showcases the lives and experiences of Hawaii’s multi-ethnic plantation
workers. We tour furnished replicas and restored plantation homes and community buildings as well as an onsite museum
displaying antiques and relics from this era.
Dole Plantation (optional stop, dependent on time restraints) — A brief stop at "Hawaii’s Complete Pineapple Experience"
allows our guests the opportunity to view exhibits about pineapple and Dole’s history in Hawaii, as well as browse hundreds of
pineapple-related and Dole-branded items.
Haleiwa - Lunch at a North Shore Shrimp Truck or comparable North Shore grill.
Waialua Sugar Mill — Once the heart of North Shore plantation life, the Waialua Sugar Mill is now home to Waialua Coffee and
