Oahu Activities and Things to Do

Popular Oahu activities include a wide variety of watersports, such as swimming, snorkeling and diving. Hanauma Bay on the island's southeastern shore is one of the best spots in all of Hawaii for snorkeling. Scuba divers have access to many prime dive locations, including Makaha Caverns on Oahu's leeward coast and Shark's Cove on the North Shore.

A great windsurfing and kayaking destination is Kailua Beach on the windward coast. And not to forget there's always Waikiki Beach, which is suitable for almost every water activity there is – from swimming and snorkeling, to paddling, parasailing, and, of course, surfing. It was here where Duke Kahanamoku (1890-1968), who is considered the "Father of Modern Surfing," rode the waves in the early 20th century.

A popular land-based Oahu activity is hiking. Hikers have access to a variety of maintained trails on the island. Join an Oahu nature hike that takes you through lush rainforests and discover gorgeous waterfalls. Or, if you don’t want to do all the walking yourself, how about a horseback ride or an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) tour? At Kualoa Ranch, for example, you can ride through the lush Ka'a'awa Valley and discover popular Hollywood movie locations along the way.

If you are into fishing or have always wanted to experience reeling in a huge big game fish, such as a Jack Trevally, Marlin or Tuna, check out our selection of Oahu fishing charters. Go fishing early in the morning or how about a midnight shark hunt? Hawaii Discount offers a wide variety of deep sea and bottom fishing trips. Or come aboard a glass bottom boat and view marine life up close without having to get wet. Those who crave adventure can get up close and personal with nature’s most feared predator. Shark encounters depart from Oahu's North Shore. 

For the non-fishermen there are great Oahu dinner cruises, ideal of you want to treat your loved one to something special. Enjoy wonderful coastline views and a delicious meal on board a cruise ship or sailboat. Alternatively, if you are on Oahu between November and April, you can go on an exciting whale watching cruise.

Last but not least, there are many interesting places to visit on the island, so plan on doing some Oahu sightseeing and visit for example Pearl Harbor, Iolani Palace and Diamond Head.
