Hawaii's Breathtaking Hiking Trails! Honestly, the last time I've went hiking was at 21 yrs. of age (okay, that way back in the day) although that last hike was from Tantalas to the other side of the Koolaus and looking down on the Windward side of Oahu. Needless, to say. That was the last time I went on a hike so long and up and down rugged mountains. Look at the Triple Ridge Olomana Hiking trail to the right. Wow. Anyway, if you like hiking this is definitely the place to find hiking trails.
Here are some Links to Other Hiking Sites
When my husband and I were married, my daughter bought us tickets for a dinner cruise on the Star of Honolulu for the following night as our wedding gift from her. That was the greatest experience for one local girl (me) and haole (Caucasian) husband who thought the "touristy" things were only for tourists! Many shows, fun, entertainment, dancing, acknowledgement of our marriage, and tons of food! And that's not all. The picture to the right depicts just where you'll be cruising. Right off of Ala Moana and Waikiki and viewing Diamond Head! You will also see marine life as well! The Star of Honolulu has many different DINNER SHOW PACKAGES to pick from. So, remember, you don't have to be a tourist to go out and enjoy the finer things while in Hawaii! Weddings too!
Hawaiian Waters Adventure Park! Now this is a place to go for the whole family. (provided you love to get wet!) 25 acres of speed and shotgun slides, the Cliffhanger, Water playground, Keiki (children's) cove, picnics, and more! Just make reservations and they will do all the planning and coordinating for you! All you have to do is show up and have fun! There are also volleyball courts, lawn games, dunk tank, horse shoe pits, private pavilions for you and your family. Weddings? No problem!

Hawaii's Whale Watching Tours (In spiritual Hawaiian custom the Whales are the essense of the ocean) and Swim with the Dolphins (Sea Life Park) A while ago I used to work at the Kahala Mandarin Hotel now called the Kahala Hotel & Resort and they had a some dolphins in a large aquatic pool in the rear of the hotel by the swimming pools. The trained dolphin personnel would guide their customers in the water to swim with the dolphins. While I was there, one of the mommies gave birth to a baby, and to this day I remember the baby's name. "Hoku" which means night of the full moon because the baby was born on guess what? The night of the full moon. Our monk seal population has decreased and is an endangered species so they (just as any other sea creature in Hawaii) are carefully watched over. This monk seal is rare and ONLY found in the Hawaiian Islands.
