Why Hawaii Cruises are a Must-Do
A day in the park has a different meaning when visiting Hawaii. It’s nearly impossible to visit every State and National Park around the Hawaiian Islands, so we’ve narrowed down a list for you to visit while enjoying exotic Hawaii cruises.
Known as the ‘Grand Canyon of the Pacific,’ Waimea Canyon is found on the Hawaiian island of Kauai and is 14 miles long and over 3,600 feet deep. The geographical wonder offers hiking experiences full of spectator landscapes and breath-taking views.
The island of Kauai is home to the Wailua River State Park, which features the Wailua Falls. The 173-foot waterfall towers over the area’s beauty for a truly majestic experience.
When looking for some of the most active volcanoes on the planet, heading to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is near the top of the list for any volcano hunter. Kilauea is one of the more active volcanoes having consistent eruptions since 1983.
If observing marine creatures is also on your adventure list, French Polynesia is the ideal place to interact with wonderful sea life. Bora Bora in Tahiti is known for its scuba diving and snorkeling hot spots with coral reefs teeming with colorful fish.
Hawaii cruises and activities don’t have to end at the water or with nature either. The Bishop Museum in Honolulu features over 24 million artifacts from various Pacific islands’ peoples and cultures.
