Visit Pearl Harbor…from the air
Craving a bite of American history? Visit the famous Pearl Harbor, but from the air with a Pearl Harbor tour offered by Pearl Harbor Warbirds. Be immersed in the details of the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor and soar above the important sites that played a part in the “Day of Infamy.” Relive history as you retrace the steps of the Army and Navy airmen in the days following the bombing. Fly on some of the same routes the Japanese attackers used into the airfields at Wheeler, Kāne‘ohe and Bellows. There are many air tours in Hawai‘i, but only one warbird airplane flight. Located in Honolulu, Hawai‘i Pearl Harbor Warbirds provides a personal historical experience making it one of the best O‘ahu attractions.
Take a surfing lesson on Maui with Maui’s premier Surf and Stand Up Paddle ocean recreation company, Hawaiian Ocean Sports. Hawaiian Ocean offers surfing lessons and stand up paddle board lessons as well as rentals. Learn to surf with Maui’s elite local surfers while learning the ancient Hawaiian sport of He’e Nalu — to ride a surfboard, surfing, wave riding; literally wave sliding.
Smell the sunflowers
North Shore on Oahu is known for its copious fields of sunflowers. The Waialua Sunflowers are add a bit of sunshine that people flock from all over the island to see and snap pictures of. There are tours available, and the sunflowers are a popular sight for professional photos. The tours are free, and merchandise is also available.
Snorkel at Electric Beach
Electric Beach is located next to the Hawaiian Electric Plant, known for the warm water and its rich abundance of sea life. The ocean water is also known for its clarity, and a wide array of sea turtles, schools of angelfish, butterfly fish, parrot fish, eels, coral on the seafloor, and more!
Chow down on garlic shrimp at North Shore
North Shore is famous for its delicious food trucks parked right by the beach, and the garlic shrimp is a particular favorite! Soaked in buttery, garlic-y goodness, garlic shrimp is a must-try! And for those less inclined to enjoy creatures of the sea, there is still several different options at the food trucks to try!
