Top 8 Things to Do For Some Hawaiian Adventures

This Central Pacific archipelago includes hundreds of islands and a diverse range of activities to partake in. With huge waves, volcanoes and an interesting culture, Hawaii will keep you busy and entertained.  These are eight top things to enjoy while visiting the beautiful atoll.

Whale Watching

The ‘Big Island’ is the most popular destination for whale watching in Hawaii.  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.


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 a delectable cuisine.

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

There are various tour lines that 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 an ideal way to sightsee.

SUP (Stand-Up Paddle Boarding)

This activity originated in Hawaii and is a derivative from surfing.  SUP is soothing and allows you to explore the waterways on your own terms.  A great paddle path to take is from the Lanakai Beach to the Mokulua islands.

Horseback Riding Tours

Explore the coastline or venture to hidden trails on an exploratory horseback tour.  Most companies offer private as well as group tours.  There are countless ranches and stables that accommodate tourists and ensure that they experience top Hawaiian adventures. 

Paniolo Adventures is one of the largest, with an 11,000-acre cattle ranch located in Waimea.

Mauna Kea
