After five hours flying time from Los Angeles, you land in Hawaii, where the eight main islands provide an endless number of boating and watersports activities. Here are just a few:
Take a glass bottom boat reef tour, steer a Hobie Cat off the beach, or relax on a sunset cruise with a drink in hand. Try your hand at fly fishing, sportfishing, even shark fishing. Kayak, stand-up paddle, snorkel, or scuba dive. Go parasailing, whale watching or get in the water and swim with dolphins and turtles. And of course, you'll want to hit the beaches for surfing lessons—long board, short board, windsurf, kitesurf, even kitesurf foiling.
Water, sand, and surf are plentiful in these islands, and they’re waiting for you. Our thanks to Neil Rabinowitz for this week's tour of warm-weather destinations for boaters, which also included Puerto Rico and the Spanish Virgin Islands, Cabo San Lucas, the Florida Keys, U.S. Virgin Islands.
