If you’re planning your first Hawaii trip you may not know where to start. Use these Hawaii travel tips to get a head start on your plans, and you’ll be on your way to making the most out of your Hawaiian vacation.
Hawaii travel tips
The best Hawaii travel tip to give would be to start planning early. Make a list of all the things you want to do. Then, split that list up into “must do’s” and “should do’s” so you can prioritize your activities.
Know when to go
Hawaii has so many awesome and amazing things to do that they have to take turns… Certain things are seasonal. This not always a bad thing. In the wintertime, huge swells roll onto Oahu’s North Shore beaches for surfers and spectators to enjoy. In the summertime you can moor a sailboat in the middle of Waimea Bay, and the calm waters make for excellent snorkeling.

Make your reservations
Now that you know what you want to do and when you can do it, all that is left is to choose where! Seats fill up, shows sell out, and no one wants to miss out on something they’ve been dying to do because they didn’t know they had to make a reservation!
The most important things to book in advance are inter-island tours, and visits to Pearl Harbor. Don’t wait to start planning until 2 weeks before your trip! Call us or visit us online to book your Hawaii tours and activities!
Pack it up!
Since you know what you’re going to be doing, you need to pack accordingly. If you made plans to go snorkeling in a different spot every day you really should bring more than one pair of swim trunks. Or maybe instead of buying an underwater camera, get an underwater iPhone case insead.
