8. Kailua Beach Adventures, Kailua, HI

Get out on the water in your own kayak with a two hour (longer options are available) guided tour. This relaxed time on the water will take you past sea turtle feeding grounds, near bird nesting sites, and to Popoi’a Island. The tour comes with lunch, hotel pick-up, and the option to snorkel.

Seeing Iolani Palace in person has probably been the greatest accomplishment thus far for me🌴 #oahu #honolulu
