Many popular movies and TV shows have been filmed on the beautiful island of Hawaii, and you can experience the scenery first-hand on the Kualoa Ranch Movie Tour. Are you a fan of Hawaii-Five-0 or Lost? How about Jurassic Park or Pearl Harbor? See where these and other popular TV shows and movies have been filmed in scenic Kaaawa Valley. You might even get to see filming in progress!

Named one of America's top 10 Movie Site Tours, the Kualoa Movie Sites and Ranch Tour takes you to where many blockbuster movies and television series have been filmed over the years, including: Jurassic Park, Windtalkers, 50 First Dates, Hawaii Five-0, Lost, Off the Map, Battleship, and Pearl Harbor. The popular Kualoa Ranch Movie Tour also includes a stop at the oldest sugar mill on the island of Oahu, the chance to check out a World War II bunker with a photo exhibit from various movie productions, and stunning views of the beautiful Kaaawa Valley.

The Kualoa Movie Sites & Ranch Tour takes visitors to the highly- recognizable Kaaawa Valley, also known as “the backlot of Hawaii”, to see the actual filming locations of many well-known movies and TV shows. You’ll see Godzilla’s footprints, the battleground from Windtalkers, and multiple locations from Lost and 50 First Dates. Keep your eyes peeled for current filming action as well…you may just see a take being shot for the hit television series Hawaii 5-0!

On the Kualoa Ranch Movie Tour, you will also have the chance to see breathtaking views of Mokolii Island, Kaneohe Bay and the most popular surf spots on Oahu! The tour lasts approximately one hour, affording visitors a unique opportunity to see some of the most stunning areas of Oahu!

In the 19th century, the land was inhabited by Gerrit P. Judd, a physician and missionary who began a sugar plantation that was later operated by his son-in-law, Samuel Garner Wilder. Judd was also deemed a trusted advisor and cabinet minister to King Kamehameha III of Hawaii (1813-1954).

The land was also the site of Kualoa Airfield during World War II, a vital training ground used by the 28th Photographic Reconnaissance Squadron, and the 18th Fighter Group, which operated the famous Curtiss P-40 Warhaw/Kittyhawk attack planes. It is only appropriate, then that Hollywood production companies saw Kualoa as an optimal location for World War II films such as Pearl Harbor.

Once sacred land to the ancient residents of Oahu, Kaawa Valley was home to the revered drums of Kapahuula. The 4,000-acre cattle ranch was established in 1850, and the terrain varies from stunning white sand beaches to lush rainforests, open valleys to jutting cliffs.

The Kualoa Ranch is a family owned enterprise, and they consider it their personal mission to preserve and protect the land's natural beauty and resources.

Comments about Smart Destinations Movie Sites and Ranch Tour at Kualoa Ranch:

We had heard about the movie tour on a previous trip to Oahu and were looking forward to touring the ranch to learn about what movies were filmed there and see some props/scenery. Our tour guide James was so knowledgeable - spent considerable time on the 1/2 half of the tour explaining how the ranch had been used by the US Government as a makeshift airfield/bunker after the attack on Pearl Harbor. We saw where the hangars and runway had been, viewed artifacts and maps, saw sections of the metal grid runway. Even toured the Battery Cooper and sections of fence which were there afterwards. I actually found the WW2 portion of the tour more interesting than the move facts. There have been a multitude of movies filmed there, some recently. Would certainly recommend. We drove there, there is no parking fee.....

Comments about Smart Destinations Movie Sites and Ranch Tour at Kualoa Ranch:

This was a really cool tour, you get driven around the ranch in an old school bus. There a lot of older movies that were filmed around where this tour goes. You also see a really cool bunker that's been used in a lot of TV shows and Lost. The highlight of the tour is seeing the log that they hid under in the 1st Jurassic Park movie during the Egalimimus stampede. There are a few movie things that are at Kualoa Ranch that you don't see with this tour. For instance, all of the Jurassic World stuff is part of the Jungle Tour and not the movie sites tour. There is also an expensive "Movie Experience" tour that shows a lot of other stuff. This tour is definitely worth seeing, but I couldn't help being disappointed at the stuff that wasn't included, especially if it's the only tour you do while you're there. Plan on eating lunch there, the burgers are amazing, 100% grass fed beef raised and butchered right there on the ranch!

Movies? Where?

Comments about Smart Destinations Movie Sites and Ranch Tour at Kualoa Ranch:

I personally almost didn't like anything about this. Pick-up is available only once a day. So no matter what time your tour starts, you have only one option - go there at 7 AM and come back 2:30 PM. Our tour was at 10:30 AM. We didn't take any other tours because the Guidebook says "Your choice of one of the following 1.5 hour tours per day". The only thing we could do before and after our tour is - eat in the restaurant. Boring. Tour itself: lack of informations about movies. I heard more about the property itself (cost, size) and fishes and cows that live there, than about movies. Out of those 90 minutes, I heard about movies for about 15 minutes maximum. Nature is very nice, can't deny.

Comments about Smart Destinations Movie Sites and Ranch Tour at Kualoa Ranch:

My daughters and I went on this tour when it first opened. Needless to say it was inexpensive then, but I would pay to do it again. Our tour guides were great, interactive and just a kick in the butt! Not sure how much is the same, but either way, the friendly people at the ranch will make it worth the while!

A great day
By Bill Brasher Verified Reviewer from Vancouver on

Comments about Smart Destinations Movie Sites and Ranch Tour at Kualoa Ranch:

We actually did the bonus of the 1/2 day at Kualoa which included the movie site tour and secret beach and a show and dinner. The movie site tour was a blast...who knew so many shows were filmed at one location. You could pick out scenes from movies like Jurasic park...really a great day. The guides were funny and knowledgeable and we took some great photos.
