Hawaii Cruisetours

When cruising to a tropical destination like Hawaii, the more time the better – and that’s why Hawaiian cruisetours are such a great option. You’ll not only island hop to the best spots within the island chain, you’ll also have a few straight days on land to really immerse yourself in the charming Hawaiian way of life. Before cruising around the island, head to the Polynesian Cultural Center to start your vacation off with a better understanding of the local culture. Afterwards, you’ll still have plenty of time to explore the North Shore, to hike along the Oahu coastline and pay your respects at the USS Arizona Memorial. With a Hawaii cruisetour, your extra time on the island is whatever you want to make of it – a relaxing retreat before your activity-filled adventure, or a jam-packed quest through one of the world’s most beautiful destinations.

 

Things to Do on a Cruisetour to Hawaii

 

There is certainly no shortage of things to do and places to see in Hawaii, and a cruisetour provides you with a few extra days to really make the most of your time on the islands. Hawaiian cruisetours typically focus on the island of Oahu, which is ripe for discovery – especially if you’re interested in nature, history, culture or food. Highlighted below are a few of our favorite things to see and do when on a Hawaiian cruisetour:

 


Hawaii Cruisetours, Woman Surfing in Hawaii, Paddling out to the Lineup
  • Go for a surf lesson or just observe the experts as they ride the famous waves of Oahu’s North Shore. Make your way to the local surf shops, craft / art galleries and restaurants to strike up a conversation with the locals and find out what draws so many people to this legendary surf spot and artistic region.
     
  • Head to the Polynesian Cultural Center to learn about the traditional Hawaiian way of life, and discover what one of the original island villages would have looked like. Hawaii’s natives have descended from several Southern Pacific nations like Fiji, Tahiti, Samoa and New Zealand – and their cultures have all blended beautifully and are preserved in the island’s dances, games and festivals.
     
Hawaii Cruisetours U.S.S. Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii
  • Visit the USS Arizona Memorial and pay your respects to the lives lost during the attack on Pearl Harbor. This remarkable memorial, which sits directly above the sunken USS Arizona battleship, features a shrine to the lost crewmembers and visitor center full of information about the attack.
     
  • Oahu is full of sites dedicated to preserving the history of World War II, including the Pacific Aviation Museum. The museum, which is housed within former airplane hangars located on Ford Island, showcases bombers and fighter planes that were actually used during the Allied campaign.
     
Hawaii Cruisetours Easter island head on Kualoa Ranch, Oahu, Hawaii
  • If you’re interested in learning more about ancient Hawaii, travel to Kualoa Ranch where the island’s history comes to life. You’ll unearth ancient farming practices, witness oyster cultivation and learn about the indigenous plant and wildlife. Plus, you get to ride to a treasured pond in a traditionally styled catamaran.
     
  • Sometimes the best thing to do in Hawaii is to simply slow down and admire the view. That’s exactly what you can do at the historic Nu’uanu Pali Lookout. Located 1,000 feet above the coast, this stone lookout offers one-of-a-kind vistas from a historic battle site.
