Lisa Weber of Adventures and Discoveries Hawaii has used both a Go Oahu Card (a by-the-day, all-inclusive Pass for sights and activities in Oahu) and the new Custom Oahu Explorer Pass (pick what you want to see and do, it gets put on a custom Pass).
As Lisa describes it, both save you money on tours, activities, cruises, and outdoor activities. But depending on your travel style, you may want to choose one over the other.
Lisa’s advice is that if your are a “very active vacationer” then the Go Oahu Card is probably the right bet. If on the other hand, the Custom Explorer Pass is the way to go if “you don’t want to rush around and make sure you get in as many activities as possible each day you can just pre-pick your activities and know you are getting a great, pre-paid deal.”
Go Oahu Card has 30 attractions that it covers, while the Custom Oahu Explorer Pass allows travellers to select what from they want from a list of 15 choices. Both include such perennial favorites as Germaine’s Luau, Grand Circle Island Tour, Hanauma Bay Snorkeling tour, Kailua Kayak Rental, Makani Catamaran Sail, the Pacific Aviation Museum, Pearl Harbor and Honolulu City tour, Sea Life Park, Waikiki Hop On Off Trolley Pass, and the Battleship Missouri Memorial.
