Kid-Friendly Fun on Oahu


Best Kid-Friendly Fun on Oahu

Is it time to take the kids on an Oahu vacation?

Whether you’re looking for a two-hour excursion or an all-day affair, there are more than enough kid-friendly Oahu activities.

Here are just a few of the top activities that are ideal if you’re on a family vacation:

Hawaii Zipline Tours

Feel the need for speed?

Hawaii zipline tours offer a safe adrenaline rush along with gorgeous views of the rainforest. These unforgettable adventures are a great way to see the island of Oahu from hundreds of feet in the air.

Some of the best Oahu zipline tours can be found at Kualoa Ranch. These tour packages also include other great vacation activities, such as guided horseback riding and beach expeditions.

Sea Life Park Hawaii

If you think your kids would get a kick out of meeting dolphins face-to-face, this is the place to go.

Sea Life Park Hawaii is one of Oahu’s most popular kid-friendly activities. Here, you and your kids can play with the islands’ marine life in a safe, fun environment. Popular programs include the Dolphin Swim, the Shark Trek, and the Sea Lion Swim.

Honolulu Zoo

As you can see, nature is one of the biggest Hawaiian activities, and the Honolulu Zoo is no exception.

This 300-acre zoo has dozens of animals from around the world, with mammals, birds, and reptiles. You and your children will be able to see everything from aardvarks to wart hogs.

The zoo is located between Waikiki and Diamond Head, so it’s easy to schedule a visit if you’re staying in Honolulu.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Hawaii

This is in the top 10 most-visited family attractions on Oahu.

Looking for some crazy slides and rides? No problem. This water park has extreme rides that catapult you through the air, send you flying through water-filled tunnels, and even a machine that generates a 40-foot continuous wave.

And if you want something a bit more relaxed, don’t worry. The park’s “chill” rides are ideal for younger kids who just want to run around and play in the spray.

The Waikiki Aquarium

Here’s another must-do activity if you want an up-close view of Hawaii’s marine life.

This Oahu attraction is the second-oldest aquarium in the United States, opened in 1904. It’s a perfect destination for everyone in the family. And it’s a great place to go even if you leave the kids at home.

The Waikiki aquarium has regular exhibits that feature some of the islands’ most fascinating sea life, from otherworldly jellyfish to rainbows of tropical fish to underwater coral farms.

The Polynesian Cultural Center

The aptly named Polynesian Cultural Center is a great way to introduce your family to the myriad of cultures that make up the Polynesian Islands.

Exhibits cover the Islands of Hawaii, the Samoan Islands, the Islands of Tonga, the Islands of Fiji, and more.

But this isn’t a dry, boring museum. It’s an interactive set of exhibits with a variety of activities to choose from, such as canoe tours, cooking exhibits, spear throwing, and more.
