Fun Ocean Activities in Hawaii

We all know that the ocean is the place to be and the biggest draw in Hawaii. Not only is the setting absolutely stunning, there is so much fun to be had in the warm waters of the Pacific. Even if you’re just lounging on the beach, there is seemingly non-stop fun in the ocean, and Hawaii features plenty of great ocean activities to fill your trip to the ocean. But, what are the best ocean activities in Hawaii?

Surfing is THE sport in Hawaii and any visit to the islands has to include some time riding the waves. Each island features breaks that are perfect for beginners, and lessons are available from local pros to help with the technique and learn the skills needed to paddle, paddle, paddle, and pop-up. In no time, you will be riding the waves that Hawaiians have been riding for years.

As soon as you step off the plane you are met with Hawaii’s natural beauty, but the beauty isn't limited to the island. Beneath the surface of the ocean is an entire world of incredible beauty to discover, and a snorkeling excursion is the best way to view this tropical setting. Witness colorful fish, underwater formations, and the secrets of the ocean on any island, including some of the best snorkel spots in the world.

Deep Sea Fishing
Get out onto the open ocean for an adventure you will not forget. On board a locally owned fishing boat, you’ll head out in search of the day’s catch, including some of the biggest fish you may ever see. Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and Swordfish are just some of the fish that are found in these waters, and if you are able to hook one, you will be in for quite the challenge.

Stand-Up Paddleboarding
Surfing’s cousins, stand-up paddleboarding is an incredibly fun ocean activity that anyone can master. It takes a bit of work at first, but once you have your balance and the motion, you will be ready to go. Paddlers spend hours on the water, taking in the scenery, different vantage points of the island, and occasionally, tropical marine life. This is a great activity for all ages, and you will most certainly find a new hobby that can be done on just about any body of water.
