About Honolulu

Honolulu is the capital as well as the principal port of Hawaii. It is a modern city which extends right up to the southeastern shore of Oahu Island, and into the foothills of the Koolau Range, which makes it incredibly abundant and beautiful. In fact, you may also get to see some green volcanoes from Honolulu. What's more, the beaches in Honolulu are perfect for a summery day. In particular, Ala Moana is one of the most beautiful beaches you will see here. The legend says that there was a settlement at Honolulu in the year 1100. After a lot of challenges, Honolulu was finally recognized as an island in 1820 and flourished as a base for sandalwood traders and whalers. Honolulu was like a prime staging area for the people who managed to survive during World War II. Honolulu not only attracts numerous visitors round the year as a holiday destination, but the Honolulu port has its own responsibilities; it takes care of the state's manufacturing needs, such as taking care of plants in the city-county (which includes pineapple canneries, sugar refineries, clothing factories, steel, aluminum, oil, cement, and dairying enterprises).

Experiences
  • Swim with sharks: Here in Honolulu, you get an opportunity to be in the water with a shark. Some tour guides can take people out and let them swim with sharks without a cage! Yes, I'm sure it sounds scary, but they haven’t had any injuries or incidents in 20 years of operation. The Sandbar sharks circle around you as you snorkel. 
  • Skydive on the North Shore: For all those who love trying something new, you can jump from a plane right above the beautiful azure water and rocky coastline of the North Shore. It’s an awesome adventure and definitely one of the craziest.
  • Atlantis Submarine Tour in Waikiki: Something unusual that you can do is climb aboard a 48-passenger submarine and adventure underwater. It’s truly an amazing experience where you get to see sunken warships/planes and marine life surrounding it. 
  • Zip-lining at Kualoa Ranch: Here, you can indulge in some activities like zip-lining. It's a short scenic cruise through some amazing surroundings. This can be enjoyed with friends and family.
  • Stand up paddleboard yoga: This is something really interesting and different where you can do some awesome yoga watching while watching the sun go down.
  • Hike the Pali Notches: It believed that The Pali Notches is one the scariest hikes on Oahu as you have to challenge strong winds on the trail. There are uneven rocks which you have to climb, which can be quite a task.
  • Jump off the plank at Alan Davis: When you are at Makapu’u Lighthouse Trail carpark, there is another attraction not too far. Just along the Waikiki coast where you will find wooden planks hanging out over the crystal clear water. 
  • Watch a Surf competition: While you are in Hawaii what better to do with your time than to watch competitions like "The Billabong Pipe Masters" and the “Eddie” which are considered great wave surf competitions at Waimea Bay. 
  • Parasailing at Waikiki: You can do some Parasailing at The Waikiki which sets on tour and takes you for a ride high up with a scenic view.
