Things to do in Oahu, Hawaii

Learn about World War II

Home to the capital of Hawaii, Honolulu was a big part of American history, especially World War II. The western side of the city is where the famous Pearl Harbor is located, and the area is never short of memorials and museums from that era. 


Take a quick half day tour that takes you to see highlights of Pearl Harbor such as the Visitor Center, USS Arizona Memorial, Punchbowl National Cemetery of the Pacific, Kamehameha Statue, and Hawaiian State Capital. Or you can join another tour that takes you to Missions Houses Museum on top of all of Pearl Harbour’s highlights.


If you’d like a more in-depth tour of Pearl Harbor’s historical sites, we recommend taking a full day tour of the same highlights alongside USS Missouri, a full-service lunch and comfortable transportation. Don’t miss out on exploring USS Bowfin Submarine and Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum, too! 


Explore the seas on a cruise

You’re not doing Hawaii right without going out to the sea. Sail out to sea for a few hours and explore the underwater world of Oahu, or explore the North Shore with a personalized ocean adventure and spot marine wildlife in front of you. Feeling adventurous? Jump on a boat that will take you to Oahu’s famous big wave surfing spots and if you’re right on season, you may get to see 50-feet waves! 


Looking for something romantic for you and your partner? Jump on a sunset cruise in Waikiki and sip some Haiwaiian cocktails and taste Hawaiian pupus (appetizer). You can also get on board a sailing catamaran in Oahu’s west coast and see the sunset dip behind the ocean. If you want to spot some wildlife at the same time, we recommend a glass bottom sunset cruise


See marine wildlife 

Don’t miss out on spotting dolphins, turtles, sharks, and if you’re on season, whales! We highly suggest going out snorkeling and seeing flocks of dolphins for yourself. You can try a glass bottom boat tour if you don’t feel like getting wet. Add a little bit of thrill to your time in Oahu by diving in a cage with sharks in Haleiwa or North Shore Oahu! Surely that will stay in your memory forever.


During the months of December through to April, whale watching off the coast of Oahu is a must. See majestic performances of humpback whales that are migrating to Hawaii’s warm waters from Waikiki or Waikoloa
