If you and your best buds are looking to get away for a good time, look no further than Oahu. Pairing gorgeous natural scenery with all the fun of a cosmopolitan city, you can have the very best guys’ getaway here in the tropical air. Check out some of the possibilities for your next Oahu trip!
While you could just hit the beach during your stay, why not try something a bit more exciting? Parasailing is a popular choice on Oahu, as it’s not only exciting, but an incredible and unique way to see the view above Waikiki. If you’d prefer some adrenaline under the water, book a tour with Oahu Shark Dive! This North Shore tour, departing from Haleiwa Harbor, guarantees that you’ll see sharks, or your money back. The timid can watch from the boat, while the brave have the option to get in the water with hammerhead and Galapagos sharks, from the safety of the shark cage. You won’t soon forget these exhilarating vacations to Oahu!
If you’ve never been surfing before, a guys’ trip is a great chance to learn. Waikiki Beach is world-renowned as one of the easiest and best places to learn to surf, so you should be riding waves by the end of your first lesson. Other fun water sports to try include kayaking and stand-up paddling; many businesses offer rentals, tours, and lessons in both, no matter which part of the island you’re staying in.
Tour a Movie Set
If you’re a film buff, you definitely won’t want to miss a tour of what has to be the world’s most beautiful movie set: Kualoa Ranch, on Oahu’s windward side. You’ll recognize it immediately from Jurassic Park (and probably a half-dozen other films): this jaw-droppingly gorgeous valley is a must-see. Enjoy driving your own ATV over the rugged terrain here or kick back and enjoy being driven by a tour guide. Either way, the breathtaking scenery of the windward side is well worth the drive. Keep going and make it a circle island tour! Oahu is small enough to easily drive around in a day, so have fun exploring all the beaches and towns along the way.
Pay Your Respects
For many, no Oahu trip would be complete without a visit to the Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. This hallowed spot is what remains of Japan’s bombing of Oahu in 1941, and a visit here is a sobering reminder of the costs of war. It is a definite must-see for servicemen, veterans, and anyone interested in military history.
