You may not know this, but Hawaii is made up of eight unique islands. The most visited islands include Oahu, Maui, the Big Island and Kauai. Discover the smaller islands of Lanai and Molokai on a scenic flight or boat tour. Check out our top ten things to see and do in Hawaii.
Right next to Waikiki Beach is Diamond Head. Its life has been varied - first it was a volcano, then an army base, and now it's a hikable mountain providing wonderful views!
Take a journey to the center of the earth... almost. See active lava while hiking across craters and unique rock formations. Volcanoes National Park is home to some of the world’s most active volcanoes.
Every year, majestic whales migrate back to the islands to mate. Whale watching season runs from mid-December to the beginning of April every year.
A luau is a traditional celebration accompanied with entertainment. In Hawaii, families and friends gather to enjoy food and festivities like hula dancing and live music.
Hike Waimea Canyon, located on the lush island of Kauai. Here, you will find stark contrasts of rock and green forests.
Explore the protected marine sanctuary of Molikini Crater. See wildlife, such as turtles, coral reef and even monk seals.
In 1879, King Kalakaua built his Iolani Palace in Honolulu, which is the only official royal residence in the United States today. Definitely take a guided tour!
Drive down the famous winding Road to Hana. This epic voyage takes you through lush tropical forests and past cascading waterfalls all along the way.
Watch the sun rise at the top of Haleakala National Park on the beautiful island of Maui. Not an early riser? Bike down the mountain during the day, or try stargazing at night.
Depending on what you want to see, Hawaii is a top destination year round. If you’re looking for sunshine, visit from April to September. Rainy season from November to March coincides with whale watching season. This is a popular time of year to visit, as you are almost guaranteed to see whales.
Unsurprisingly, very warm - no wonder Hawaii is such a popular vacation destination! However, depending on the side of the island you are on, you will experience very different temperatures and weather. This unique terrain offers sunny beaches to the west, tropical showers to the north, and some freezing cold weather on the top of the craters such as Haleakala. Pack alternative clothing if you're going on an excursions.
Although in terms of land area it's one of the smallest US states, it's not necessarily easy to get around Hawaii in a small amount of time - there are quite a few islands with so much to see. If you'd like to get a lot out of your trip, plan two weeks and stay at least three days per island.
As always, We had an absolute fantastic day whale watching! Couldn’t have asked for better weather, attentive informative guides and a whale experience we’ll never forget! We were blessed with quite the show of active breaching whales! We brought a friend with us to Maui and she is in heaven from the experience. Thank you so much!
The captain and first Nate were such good people and very knowledgeable. They were committed to everyone having a good experience. We got to see dolphins, turtles, and a tour of the Waikiki shoreline. The boat was pretty empty bc if pandemic. Enough room to socially distance. It was well worth the money.
What an amazing experience! You got to witness what the bottom of the ocean looked like. You learn the history of the island and the owners were very friendly. Would recommend this to people who are on vacation. I loved every moment of the Afternoon Glass Bottom Boat Tour in Waikiki!!
Such a great experience. The tour guide and his wife were so kind. Very knowledgeable about the area. This was exactly what we were looking for! Would definitely recommend and would go again!
Fun and short kayak experience out to popoi island. The rocks are sharp on the island so wear appropriate shoes. Has a fun little tidepool too you can pop down into.
