Thrills, fun, excitement. Unwind, relax, re-charge. Then get up, get down and go for it. That's been the Hawaiian way for a thousand years, but it's never been more fun than right now.

On the Water

Kayak among sheltered coves and grottoes. Learn to surf or windsurf in one lesson with the best instructors in the world. Sail away on sleek catamarans and magnificent yachts or zip over the waves on super-fast ocean rafts. Get your kicks jet skiing, para-sailing and water skiing. Sometimes in winter, you can even snow ski down a volcano!

Go scuba-diving, whale-watching, snorkelling and outrigger canoeing. Take in one of our state-of-the-art marine parks and aquariums or ride a real submarine for an up-close look at the wonders of the reefs. And if you've ever craved the challenge of deep-sea, big-game fishing, there's no better place for it than Hawaii.

From the Air

Countless visitors to Hawaii name their helicopter sightseeing tour as the highlight of their vacation, because it's the only way to see some of our most astonishing hidden secrets, including real lava flows and valleys where no human has ever set foot, as well as the awesome heart of the rainforest. For the sheer thrill of it, try hang-gliding — with or without a motor — or even a barnstorming flight in a vintage biplane.
