What is Island Hopping?
A very common question when visiting Hawaii is: how can you get to the other islands? Many visitors are unaware of just how far apart the islands are, and getting between them is limited only to flying, with the exception of the Lanai Ferry that runs between Maui and Lanai. Years ago, there was a ferry that operated between Oahu and Maui, but there was great concern over the ocean’s fragile ecosystem, so the ferry was shut down. Though the travel options are limited, island hopping is a very popular activity in Hawaii, and it is always a great option for a trip.
Flights between islands depart frequently, and operate on the same schedule so if you decide that you just have to see another island, you can easily book a flight and go. Of course, there is more to consider, like where you will stay, how you will get around, and what you are going to do when you arrive, but as with everything in Hawaii, that is easy to handle, and you can book a vacation within your vacation in a matter of minutes.
One options for island hopping is to book a day trip to a neighbor island, and check out the top sites and attractions on a new island. Hawaii Inter-Island Tours are the top choice when you want to see more of the islands, and these tours include flights, transportation, and all of the fun tours and activities that take place on neighbor islands. From the historic sites of Pearl Harbor on Oahu, to Kauai’s Waimea Canyon, there is so much to do and see, and finding these great tours is as easy as making an online reservation and heading out!
