Frequently Asked Questions About Hawaii
Everyone needs a little advice and guidance before heading out for vacation. Some advice is regarding the airport, some on where to eat, or just information on what is actually needed in your suitcase. Luckily, we have all of that covered. Frequently asked questions about Hawaii are just part of what we do, so we are more than happy to answer the questions that come up the most.
Q: Does milk really cost $10/gallon?
A: Though it is not quite that expensive, it is a little more than you pay on the Mainland. Expect to pay $6-7/gallon.
Q: Where can I see a volcano?
A: There are volcanoes on every island, pretty much anywhere you look. The only active volcano is on the Big Island and is a great choice for an outdoor volcano adventure.
Q: Isn't there a ferry to get between islands?
A: No, there is no ferry. Operating a ferry would be detrimental to the ocean and to preserve its health, there will likely never be a ferry operating.
Q: Which is the best island to visit?
A: That really depends on your idea of a fun vacation. Each island is a bit different and offers its own version of Hawaii. Oahu is a popular destination because there is so much to do; Maui is a great choice for remote beaches and outdoor fun. The Big Island is a relaxing getaway, and Kauai is as close to the classic Hawaii vacation from the movies as you will get.
Q: Do Tours provide transportation?
A: In most cases, yes. There are a handful of tours and activities that do not provide at least an option for transportation, but those are very few and far between. Hotel pick-up information will be provided at the time of confirming your reservation.
Q: Where are the big waves?
A: At various times during the year, big swells hit the islands. The biggest and the best waves hit the North Shores in the winter months, bringing the world’s best surfers to the islands each year.
Q: How do you find a waterfall?
A: Waterfalls are scattered all over the islands and finding them is as easy as heading out on a hike with a nature guide. Every island features some amazing waterfalls, and there are even some that can be seen on a helicopter tour, so hidden that they are inaccessible by land. And as a bonus, when it rains, some waterfalls are visible just by looing at the mountains.
