Top 5 Things to do in Hawaii
Land of the most active volcanoes in the world, home to the only royal palace in the U.S. of A, Hawaii is like no other place on earth, welcoming the aloha spirit. From discovering the sparkling waves of the ocean, lush-green valleys and golden sands, your spirit easily gets lost in the beauty of the hula to experience the warmth of Hawaiians that wonderfully complement the islands’ perfect temperatures. So, here are the top 5 must-do things while you’re touring the island’s of Aloha:-
1. Take a North Shore Beach Tour at Oahu:
The amazing North Shore Beach Tour takes tourists out of Waikiki, up to Hale’iwa on the north coast of Oahu for a day-long sun and surfing adventure. Not only can you learn about the history of surfing among Hawaiian royalty in this tour, visit the world-famous surfing spots — Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay, with crystal-clear water to see the bottom, but also go for cliff-jumping from a huge rock. Guests can be invited to swim, surf, canoe, go snorkelling or scuba diving here. Snorkelling with sea-turtles is a popular activity at the Pua’ena Point, before the tour advances to the Wailua River for stand-up paddle-boarding and shaving ice. The trip ends with a visit to the Dole Plantation for lip-smacking pineapple ice cream. Welcoming all age-groups, the beach tour also includes lunch at Tsue’s Farm is included. All ages welcome.
2. Go for the Manta Ray Night Dive and Snorkel EcoAdventure at Big Island:
Kona Diving EcoAdventures allows tourists to get close to these gentle giants, with an average of a twelve-foot wingspan. Boats leave the Kona coast around sunset for the offshore gathering area of hundreds of rays. Tour guides and guests attract the Manta rays to the spot using lights, and the animals put on a marvellous show of waving and rolling in search of plankton, just within inches of the snorkelers. Although there are no strict age restrictions, but six years and up is ideal. This tour of three-hour tour leaves from Honokohau Marina, near the Pine Trees Surfing Beach and Ocean Rider Seahorse Farm, bringing a perfect end to a day of sun, sand, and snorkelling.
3. Take the Doors-Off Helicopter Tour at Kauai:
Since about seventy percent of gorgeous Kauai cannot be accessed by foot jack Harter Helicopters is a must! It is the only way to explore Kauai, and flying with the doors off invites unobstructed and stunning views of the breath-taking landscape that surrounds the tourists, including the Na Pali Coast, Mount Waialeale, Waimea Canyon and Jurassic Falls. Passengers aged 10+ years are eligible for the doors-off tours. Tours with the doors on (and air conditioning) are also offered, which are suitable for young kids. Lasting 60 or 90 minutes in total air time, this tour comes with additional time for safety instructions and transportation to and from the helicopters, provided by the agency. Flying out of Lihue, Jack Harter Helicopters is quite near to Kalapaki Beach and Backcountry Adventures tubing tours.
4. Go Mountain Tubing through Canals and Tunnels at Kauai:
The only group offering tubing tours on the AlohaIslands is Kauai Backcountry Adventures. The tourists are driven through the rainforest to the old Lihue Plantation, where they are provided with a headlamp, a tube and a set to float through the vintage irrigation system built in the late nineteenth century. Cheerful tour-guides keep the banter going while everyone drifts past lush landscapes and pitch-dark tunnels. Allowing children from five years and up, this tour departs from Lihue, close to the helicopter tours— Fern Grotto and Lydgate Beach Park.
5. Enjoy the Sunrise Lava Tour at Big Island:
This tour hosts an impeccable guided hike to visit spots with active lava flows. Commencing within Volcanoes National Park, tourists get within a few feet of fresh boiling lava, take in the majestic sunrise, and visit lesser-known sites within the rainforest park. The trip provides snacks, drinking water, and rain ponchos, for the hike is long, spanning about four to five miles in each direction, depending on current volcanic activity. Despite there being no age restrictions as such, this hike may be too strenuous for very young children. Additionally, pregnant women, infants, and the elderly are advised not to take the tour since volcanic fumes are strong. The Sunrise Lava Tour begins at 4 A.M and ends between 9 and 10 in the morning, depending on how near the lava is flows on that particular day.
