If you’re planning a trip to Oahu you must be very excited! All the beauty and fun of paradise will soon be yours to experience, and your vacation “to do” list is probably looking pretty fun. Here’s some ideas for what to do on your Oahu vacation to help you along the way!
Make a splash on your Oahu vacation
The warm tropical waters of Hawaii are perfect for learning aquatic activities. One of the most popular new ways to have fun in the sun is stand-up paddling.
A fusion between surfing and kayaking, stand-up paddling is a great way to try a new activity, have fun in the sun, an make a splash (if you fall over!).
Requiring not much more than a moderate sense of balance, stand-up paddling is easy to get the hang of, especially of you have previous experience riding boards.
Gliding along the surface of the ocean with a board beneath your feet and a paddle in your hand is a wondrous feeling. With the sun on your face and the wind in your hair, it’s hard to ignore the sensation of freedom.
Add a little adventure to your Oahu vacation and learn how to stand-up paddle!
Take a relaxing sail off Waikiki Beach
If you’re more of the type to sit back and relax on vacation then a voyage on the Waikiki Rigger is for you! Hop aboard this 45-foot catamaran and sail along the famed Waikiki Beach.
Take the Sunset Waikiki Rigger Cruise and enjoy a cocktail on the sea, and enjoy a Hawaiian sunset from where I think is the best place to see it from, the sea! If you take the cruise on a Friday, you’ll be back on the beach in time to enjoy the free Waikiki fireworks which go off every friday evening at 7:45!
If you want to scope out the aquatic life beneath the surface, the Waikiki Rigger also has an amazing snorkeling adventure. Sail out to the crystal clear waters where you’ll go for a dip and experience Hawaii’s abundant marine life.
Reef fish, turtles, and more are waiting for you… What are you waiting for?
