Water Sports In Hawaii

Water Sports in​ Hawaii
Ah, Hawaii the​ perfect vacation spots for​ a​ magical getaway in​ a​ tropical paradise .​
There are few vacation destinations that offer as​ many attractions as​ Hawaii .​
the​ island of​ Oahu boasts huge cities with lots of​ shopping as​ well some cultural activities nestled amongst the​ North Shore surfing villages .​
the​ island also is​ home to​ the​ memorial at​ Pearl Harbor, which is​ on the​ top of​ the​ list of​ must see for​ Oahu
There are ample opportunities for​ playing golf as​ well .​
All of​ the​ islands have golf courses .​
They range from world championship golf courses to​ quiet laid back courses that have little or​ no greens fees .​

But really Hawaii is​ all about the​ water sports .​
the​ state is​ an​ island surrounded by the​ Pacific Ocean that is​ home to​ some of​ the​ world's best and​ largest waves .​
In fact surfing was invented here in​ the​ islands .​
Oahu and​ Maui are most well known for​ surfing, particularly the​ North Shore of​ both islands, but you can really expect to​ see some pretty great waves just about anywhere in​ Hawaii .​
if​ you are a​ beginner, you should stick to​ the​ beginner friendly waves like Waikiki Beach on Oahu and​ Lahaina in​ Maui .​
The big waves on the​ North Shore of​ the​ islands should be left to​ the​ experts.
Diving and​ Snorkeling are another popular pastime for​ vacationers in​ Hawaii .​
There are some world famous dive spots like the​ molokini crater located off the​ coast of​ Maui .​
You can expect to​ see a​ wide variety of​ sea creatures here, such as, sharks, sea turtles, rays, and​ tons of​ different tropical fish .​
This is​ a​ great spot for​ snorkeling, as​ well as​ scuba diving .​
if​ you are anxious to​ try scuba, but don't think that you are quite ready; you could try a​ combination of​ the​ two called snuba .​
This is​ similar to​ scuba in​ that you have an​ air supply; however, it's attached to​ the​ boat and​ it​ floats above you .​
With scuba, however, you have to​ carry your air supply with you in​ a​ tank on your back .​
This is​ a​ good compromise if​ you want to​ get a​ feel for​ breathing underwater, but are not quite ready to​ make the​ scuba commitment.
Maui in​ particular is​ great for​ windsurfing and​ kite boarding .​
Kite boarding is​ similar to​ windsurfing or​ wake boarding, but throw in​ the​ fact that you need to​ be able to​ fly a​ kite, and​ the​ sport suddenly becomes difficult to​ master.
Hawaiians have been kayaking since ancient times .​
if​ kayaking is​ your thing, Hawaii is​ the​ place to​ be .​
All of​ the​ islands have something different to​ offer .​
On Oahu, Kailua Bay is​ a​ popular kayaking spot, where you can paddle over to​ an​ uninhabited island for​ some respite for​ the​ very busy Waikiki Beach .​
On Maui Kealakekua Bay is​ a​ great place for​ Kayaking .​
These waters are responsible for​ the​ downfall of​ Captain Cook .​
Molokai offers some great kayaking for​ the​ more experienced paddlers .​
Whatever you water sport pleasure, Hawaii is​ sure to​ please .​
