Awaken the extraordinary by leaping into the surreal beauty and otherworldly vistas during one of Hawaii’s best island excursions. Check out our finely curated list of the best things to do on your vacation to Hawaii.
USS Arizona Memorial & Mighty Mo
Calling all history buffs, and curious travelers—book a tour that visits two of Pearl Harbor’s most famous attractions to step back in time. Visit the iconic shrines, explore the seldom-seen interiors, and stand on “Surrender Deck” where the Instrument of Surrender was signed by the United States and Japan. Hands-down a killer way to kick off your adventurous vacation.
For sweeping picturesque views, head to this 4000-acre private nature reserve, where more than 50 movies and TV shows have been filmed, including Jurassic Park, 50 First Dates, Hawaii Five-O, Pearl Harbor, and Jumanji. Tour through some of Hollywood’s favorite film locations. We highly recommend taking an ATV tour so that you can explore the more remote and hard-to-reach valleys and rarely seen nooks.
Reach new travel peaks by venturing to the highest point in Maui. Haleakalā literally translates to “House of Sun,” and soars 10,023 feet above sea level—making it the world’s largest dormant volcano. We recommend taking an early morning group tour to enjoy both the scenic drive up, and the 35-mile ride down. After watching the sun rise from above the clouds, you and your group will enjoy a cool coast downhill, all the way to the beach—stopping for breakfast along the way.
Catch the annual whale migration, where thousands of humpback whales fill the warm island waters. It’s an unbelievable sight, and one of the most popular attractions on the island. The whale’s migration season only lasts until the end of April, so book your tickets soon to see this phenomenon.
Jumpstart your Kauai adventures with a visit to the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” It’s difficult to believe that this untouched geographic marvel still resides in Kauai. Spend a day hiking the miles of maintained trails and appreciating the native flocks of birds still soaring over the mountainous valleys. Driving tours are available with picturesque views of Kalalau Valley and Pu’u O Kila.
Time to scratch authentic Hawaiian luau off your list. Enjoy an unforgettable evening of scrumptious dishes and an award-winning show, featuring fireball twirlers, fire knife dancing, and more. Dance the night away, floral lei around your neck, with the glow of tiki torches lighting the way.
Volcanoes National Park & Rainbow Falls
Feel the mist of Hilo’s Rainbow Falls and take in the glorious splendor of black sand beaches before heading to Volcanoes National Park, an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stand in awe as you stare upon breathtaking Kīlauea and Mauna Loa, both active volcanoes.
Captain Zodiac Raft & Snorkel
Learn about the island’s history and geology while onboard your speedy 24-foot Zodiac raft in the crystal-clear waters of Kealakekua Bay. Humpback whales, sea turtles, and spinner dolphins are some of the incredible marine life you can expect to see while cruising close to rock archways, sea caves, and lava tubes along the coast.
