If you arrive here on a cruise ship, you will have to make a choice what you want to see, but if you are here for a few days, you can explore it all at your leisure.
5.Rent a car and drive to the North Shore of the island and see the surfers. The surfing competition is held here, so if you are lucky you may see the contest. The waves are dependent on the weather, so some days waves will be enormous, and other days, just look like any ordinary beach.
8.See the Honolulu Zoo. Located within walking distance of many downtown hotels in Queen Kapi'olani Park is the 42.5 acre zoo. The hours are 9am-4:30pm, and parking is available at a cost of $1 per hour. Entry is currently $14.00 for adults and $6.00 for children 3-12. There is also a gardens as well. A nice afternoon activity with lots to see, and away from the crowds on the beach.
9.Swim with the dolphins at Sea Life Park Hawaii.Even if you dont swim with the dolphins, there is a dolphin show, a shark tank, penguin habitat, a sea turtle feeding, & much more. Great fun for the kids. Entry fee is $29.99 for adults, and $19.99 children ages 3-12. The park is open 10:30am-5:pm and parking is available.
