Select Your Choice of Activities, Discount Them All, and You’d Have…

the GoSelect Card!   This discount program is brought to you by Smart Destinations, the same people who offer the Oahu GoCard.   Here’s how it works.   First, pick one of two pre-built packages:

  1. the Popular Hawaii Three Pack (incl. Germaine’s Luau, Grand Circle Island Tour, and Pearl Harbor/Honolulu City Tour)  with a savings of 32% over walk-up prices; or
  2. the Hawaiian Sand and Surf Package (incl. the Makani Catamaran Sail, Hanauma Bay Snorkel, Beach gear rental, and Canoe Ride by Hawaiian Ocean’s) with a savings of 28% over walk up prices.

Then, you can scroll thru more than two dozen other participating attractions and order a la carte.  The more you pick, the greater your savings. On the right side of the page you’ll see a summary of your choices and your overall Pass price and savings compared to paying walk-in price to these same attractions.

You must start off by picking one of the pre-built packages, then you must add at least two additional attractions to it or you can simply take one of the pre-built packages alone.

They still offer the Go Oahu Card, which offers discounts on 38 participating attractions and is good for 1, 2, 3, 5 or 7-days.  You have up to 2-weeks to use your allocated days.  In other words, if you had a 3-day card and planned on being in Honolulu for a week, you could use the card on any three of the days you choose and as often as you want on those three days.

I have previously said, and continue to believe, that the best buy is their 3 or 5-day cards.  The main reason I prefer those is because the 3, 5, and 7-day cards come with a bonus of your choice of one of the following:

  • Dolphin Encounter at Sea Life Park (a $100 value)
  • HA Breath of Life Dinner Show at the Polynesian Cultural Center (a $70 value)
  • Half-Day Sunset Experience at Kualoa Ranch (Visit the sites of Hollywood blockbusters & TV shows filmed in the famed Kaaawa Valley,once the home of Kings and a place reserved for Hawaiian Royalty. This tour was named one of America’s top 10 Movie Site Tours and is Kualoa’s most popular way to see the Ranch. OR, the second included Tour is a visit to an ancient Hawaiian Fishpond & tropical gardens in beautiful Molii) (a $89 value)
  • 18-holes of golf, a shared cart w/transportation from Waikiki (a $125 value)
  • 1-day car rental from Dollar Rent-a-Car (a $49 value)
  • Hawaiian Ocean Surf Lesson of at least an hour (a $35 value)
  • Germaine’s Luau (a $72 value).

As you can see, worse case scenario, you are getting an additional $35 discount for getting the 3 or 5-day GoCard.  (Of course, in my case, I would be getting an additional $70-72 because I’d be eating my bonus at either the Polynesian Cultural Center luau or Germaine’s!)

So, why do I not include the 7-day card in my recommendation?  Well, I think that you can easily take advantage of just about every thing you want to do in 5-days and save the $36 difference.  Of course, if you plan on being on Oahu for a couple of weeks, you may want to get the 7-day Oahu GoCard and revisit some of your favorite attractions.
