Top Activities in Hawaii

May 18, 2008
Hawaii is a chain of islands located in the Pacific Ocean that became an official state of the United States on August 21, 1959. Hawaii is 2,300 miles away from the lower 48, but that doesn't deter tourists from flocking to Hawaii by the thousands. The popularity of this remote state is due to its tropical climate, its breathtaking views and its amazing attractions.

There are many ways to see the islands and the best way to move around quickly is by helicopter. Helicopter tours are very popular as they supply spectacular views. The pilots are keen to share their local knowledge and it's a great way of seeing a volcano at close quarters! There are tours to the different islands of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, and Big Island.

Swimming with dolphins is something that all visitors to Hawaii should never miss. One of the places that organize this activity in Hawaii is at Sea Life Park at Makapuu Point, near Waikiki. The swim lasts for 30 minutes and you can have your photo taken with the dolphin. The Sea Life Park also has animal shows with sea lions and penguins as well as other fun activities.

Some companies run trips that combine a number of activities in Hawaii. It's possible to go on a boat trip that offers swimming with dolphins and snorkeling in a coral reef. There will be the opportunity to see whales, tropical fish and Green Sea Turtles. These tours come with refreshments, snorkeling equipment and instruction. Night cruises are also very popular. Setting off in time to see the sunset, you can sail in comfort and gaze at the stars. The trip is even more special if it coincides with an eclipse or a meteor shower. These trips last a few hours and include dinner and drinks.

Horseback riding is another hobby that can be easily combined with a vacation in Hawaii. It's a terrific way to see the scenery and get off the beaten track where you may see mountains, forests, tropical orchards or out of the way beaches. Riding groups are small and beginners are catered for. The horses are well trained and instruction is provided.

When you look at the entire Hawaii vacation picture, there's simply no better place to spend a vacation than Hawaii. After all, the weather is generally perfect; accommodations are always pleasing and the activities you find there are in abundance. Add in the local charms of the various islands and the only thing you need to ask yourself is will you be taking a Hawaii vacation or do you plan to stay a lifetime?
