Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

For many visitors Oahu is the first island that you arrive in Hawaii. While there are many tours and activities that you can enjoy in paradise, your vacation shouldn’t end there! We encourage people to fly to neighbor islands to experience true Hawaii if your time and budget allow you. Inter island flights are short between 25 and 50 minutes depends on where you are flying from and to which island. You will be surprised to feel different characters and energy from each islands.
