If this is your first trip to Hawaii, you might be a little overwhelmed by the hundreds of available options. Should you snorkel? Should you surf? Go to Chinatown? Check out historical sites? Museums? Even if this is your second, third, fourth trip to Hawaii, it can still be difficult deciding what to do first!
No worries, though. Here, at Tropical Helicopters, we have compiled a list of Best Experiences on Hawaii for you to easily determine what to add to your itinerary! Here’s what made the cut:
A Hawaii helicopter tour is a one-of-a-kind experience that highlights all the gorgeous scenery the islands have to offer. A helicopter tour will give you a bird’s eye view of everything from the rippling waves of the North Shore to the flowing lava and open vents of the Kilauea Volcano! Our Doors-Off Over the Volcano helicopter ride is an adventure like no other. In addition to seeing a volcano, you will also have the opportunity to see the gorgeous waterfalls of Hilo and rising mist from Rainbow Falls. This is just one ride out of several we have to offer!

Luaus are a cultural experience, in which Hawaiians will share the traditions of their culture with a wider audience. A luau typically includes food, entertainment, decorations, and an amazing atmosphere. You can eat plenty of rich cultural foods, such as haupia (coconut pudding) or poi (prepared Hawaiian taro). Then, people share stories that celebrate aspects of Hawaiian and Polynesian culture through hula and live music.
You should definitely visit a food truck on your next trip to Hawaii. Hawaii has the perfect cultural landscape for foodies, and food trucks are an exceptional treat. Check out the food trucks on North Shore, which offer all kinds of delicious food, from shaved ice to garlic shrimp! You do not want to miss out on these eateries.
Snorkeling, particularly at Kealakekua Bay is a NECESSITY. Located approximately 13 miles south of Kailua-Kona, Kealakekua Bay is a reservation dedicated to preserving marine life. Touching the marine life or coral is against the law, but that doesn’t stop you from witnessing all the beauty up close! Here you will see where the famous Captain James Cook met his end. You can also take in the beauty of hidden religious temples around the bay. You do not want to miss out on snorkeling!
We hope this list has given you a few options to start out your trip to Hawaii!
Don’t stop here, though. Go on as many adventures as you possibly can! Hawaii is rich with culture and various experiences, and you don’t want to miss out on whatever comes your way.
