Hawaii is one of the world’s top vacation destinations, and it is little wonder why. With its spectacular year-round climate, breath-taking scenery, tropical beaches and our famous Aloha spirit, Hawaii tops more than a few travel bucket lists.
They say that travel is the only thing you buy that can make you richer and while many come to Hawaii simply to lounge on the beach or unwind by the pool, the Aloha state offers its visitors a truly unique travel experience with long list of adventures. Today’s post breaks down some of the Hawaii experiences worth splurging on to build memories that will make your life that much richer!
Na Pali Coast Helicopter Tour
Who doesn’t feel like a rock star when travelling by helicopter? Thanks to its lush green landscape, Kauai is known as the Garden Island and no visit to Hawaii is complete without seeing its incredible Na Pali coast. With a 17 mile shoreline, towering green sea cliffs and endless waterfalls, Kauai’s beautiful Na Pali Coast is the stuff daydreams and post cards are made of! Best seen by helicopter tour, this is one adventure you won’t want to miss! Below are a few of the tour operators who will take you up to see one of Hawaii’s most majestic pieces of scenery.
If you think the landscape in Hawaii is beautiful, wait until you see what lies beneath the ocean’s surface! As many as 20% of the reef fish found throughout the islands are endemic which means you won’t find them anywhere but Hawaii. Listed as one of the top ten diving spots in the world, the Molokini Crater is a crescent moon-shaped island located just a few miles off the coast of Maui. Home to more than 250 species of marine life, 30+ coral species and more than 100 types of algae, the underwater world at the crater is truly a sight to behold. In the early morning sunlight, visitors are treated to undisturbed views of up to 150 feet. Below are links to some of the fine folks who’ll take you out to the crater!
There is nothing quite as luxurious as a private charter to take you out in to Hawaii’s waters for an adventure that is all your own. Whether it’s a turtle or dolphin swim you’re after, or a sunset sail complete with cocktails and an executive chef, this is truly an experience you won’t soon forget. Visit the sites below so find a charter for you.
Our last Hawaii experience worth splurging on is one the whole family will enjoy! With Maui, Waikiki and Kona locations to choose from, Atlantis Submarines will take you below the ocean’s surface for an up close look at Hawaii’s incredible marine life. A true Eco-Adventure, Atlantis submarines are battery powered and emit no pollution to disrupt the eco-system of our marine life. From schools of fish to Hawaii’s incredible coral reef and abandoned ship wrecks, Atlantis Submarine Adventures invites guests to explore Hawaii from 100 feet below the surface!

We had a wonderful time at Sail Away and I recommended Hawaii Hideaway to dozens of people. You were a delight to work with and I will definitely use you again the next time we rent a home in the islands.
Like a Dream
Bliss doesn’t even describe our experience. It was almost like a dream. We are ready to do this again with Hawaii Hideaways – you guys are the best. Everything was perfect!!!
Outstanding Experience From Beginning to End
It was in an outstanding experience from beginning to end, I would work with Hawaii hideaways again in the future unquestionably. Sunny Madeiros was terrific with her recommendations of everything from leisure activities to restaurants and even equipment rentals.

Perfect Combination of Elegance and Comfort
First time to Maui (and Hawaii). This is a spectacular setting and the home is a perfect combination of elegance and comfort. I could stay on the lanai all day long and be happy. Of course there’s a ton of fun activities, but it was great to have Gull Cottage as our base to come back to!

You’re Going to Want to Stay
Our family spent a splendid week in Kauai in early 2017, basing ourselves out of the Touching Green house. It’s in a great location, has everything you need, and is just lovely. The pictures don’t do it justice. You’re going to want to stay!
We had a wonderful time in Kauai! We remained in awe at the unimaginable beauty, both of the rental home, as well as Kauai itself. It will be a treasured memory for life. I hope we can come back and make more memories.
