Amazing Places to Visit in Oahu
If you're staying on Oahu for an extended period of time or coming for the second or third time, don't miss out on its hidden beauties. They're off the main path, yet only a short drive from Honolulu, where you'll most likely be staying. Several adventurous boat operators provide North Shore tours that should not be missed.
There is also the Seven Mile Miracle (world-famous surfing beaches). A day on the North Shore is a refreshing contrast from Honolulu and allows you to explore vistas of natural beauty. They're among the most exciting things to do on Oahu, and your children and teenagers will adore adventure boat tours.
There is no spot in the Hawaiian Islands that compares to Pearl Harbor in terms of military history, but there are some items to see on the way to and from whale watching. Sharks can be seen on the same vessels but heading in the opposite direction. It's not difficult to cruise past the identical locations where shark cage diving takes place. Only you'll be safe in a boat rather than underwater.
Oahu tour boats of today are rigid inflatable watercraft that are safe, smooth-riding, and pleasant. Even while riding through large waves, there is little splashing, and you remain dry. They have changed the face of ocean travel for the better. Last but not least, there's the Seven Mile Miracle on Oahu.
It's a collection of world-class surfing beaches that are well-known across the world. You can see them much better from a boat than from shore, and you can surf the large waves while you're out there. Most of us have seen enormous Oahu waves in movies and on television.
Yet nothing beats experiencing them firsthand. It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience when you're traveling with an experienced local captain who knows where to find them and how to sail gracefully over them. If you have adolescents who are dubious of many tourist attractions, they will like this one.
