When people travel to Hawaii, I’ve noticed that it is most often to celebrate a milestone event in their life. What makes Hawaii such a desirable destination? Of all the places in the world, what makes Hawaii the place we want to celebrate our most important days?
This Central Pacific archipelago includes hundreds of islands and a diverse range of activities to partake in. With huge waves, volcanoes, and interesting culture, Hawaii will keep you busy and entertained.
These are 8 unique activities that Hawaii offers that keep people returning year after year to celebrate with their loved ones.
Whale Watching – The 'Big Island' is known as one of the most popular destination for whale watching. The peak season to catch a glimpse of Humpback whales is from January to March. You have the option to view via a cruise or private boat tour.
Luaus – These traditional ceremonies are a major source of entertainment on all islands within Hawaii. Take the opportunity to enjoy live dancing, learn about Hawaiian as well as Polynesian culture, and enjoy delectable cuisines.
See a Lava Show – Hop aboard a World-class catamaran to get up and close to the volcano fingers as they enter the sea. You will have thoroughly trained staff aboard, and safety is paramount. You can select from a tour in the morning, sunset, day, or twilight tour.
Helicopter Tours – Various tour lines offer unique aerial journeys that allow you to view the breathtaking Hawaiian scenery. From volcanoes and waterfalls to hidden valleys and majestic coastlines. A helicopter tour is truly a once in a life time event.
SUP (Stand-Up Paddle Boarding) – This popular activity actually originated in Hawaii and is a derivative of surfing. SUP is soothing and allows you to explore the waterways on your terms. An excellent paddle path to take is from the Lanikai Beach to the Mokulua Islands.
Horseback Riding Tours – For those who loves horses, exploring the coastline of Hawaii or discovering hidden trails on an exploratory horseback tour is a dream come true. In Hawaii, countless ranches and stables accommodate tourists. Paniolo Adventures is one of the largest, with an 11,000-acre cattle ranch located in Waimea.
Mauna Kea – This dormant volcano is a unique wonder to explore, and erupted over 4,000 years ago. You can hike the summit, but be sure to stop by the VIS (Visitor Information Station) to check for weather and safety tips.
Kona Coffee Farm Tour – Everyone loves coffee. And Kona coffee is some of the best gourmet coffee that you can find and is world-renowned. Kailua Kona, which is located on the 'Big Island,' is the heart of Kona coffee. When taking a tour, you will get to see processing facilities as well as the coffee fields.
