According to Wikitravel, unless your car is amphibious (like the Aquada), you'll need to get it freighted to Hawaii. Fortunately this seems fairly common, and a quick google search gives a few results, including this on Hawaii Car Shipping: According to them it usually takes three to four weeks, you will need a variety of paperwork and (of course) shipping ...

From the files of "don't believe everything you see on TV (especially on Mythbusters)", we have... The Island that you've included the photo for is "Green Island", and is located just off Cairns in Australia. It is most certainly not an 'uninhabited island", and even has a Resort you can stay at for only $600+ per night! Fairly clearly that Island isn't ...

The Navy does have programs that will allow journalists, community leaders, and other individuals to spend a great deal more time on a submarine than just a few minutes. However, these are not exactly common, and not for a week. For instance, in this story, educators from Chicago were able to spend a day on a fast attack sub. On the second day, the ...

Maui is great for the first time Hawaii traveler, and gives a good dose of the adventure - the gorgeous scenery along with the famed hospitality, and staying for a few days, as you are, will serve you well. Lahaina is a good location to explore the island, plus it is relatively economical compared to Kapalua and the pricey Wailea. It also has a ton of ...

On the Kona side of Big Island, a lot of companies offer daily a trip to snorkel or SCUBA-dive with manta rays at night. I guess you can also just swim there and join the party if you're unwilling to pay, but I don't think that's simple or safe to do, especially as this is a night activity. I did a dive there recently and it was absolutely amazing, easily ...

What sort of submarine are you looking for? travelscience.com lists 2 tour companies that offer deep-sea submarine expeditions to the titanic, bismark or black smokers. The advenbtures.ca tour is 12 days long and will set you back ~$60.000, but im not sure how much fun it would be in such a small can: AFAIK it takes ~2h to dive to the titanic, and 2h to ...

Short answer : No, they do not. Longer answer : The airport and 40 Hana Highway locations are separate locations - one serves the airport, and the other primarily serves the pier. The airport has a shuttle that runs from the airport to the airport location (which is actually a few hundred yards away from the airport). The 40 Hana location has a shuttle ...

You could always hit Molokini, off the island of Maui, which is a heavily traffic'ed snorkeling spot - great for spotting coral reefs. Plus the guided tours ensure that you are informed about what you see. Summers around Maui are great for whale spotting - though I seriously doubt you will get to swim alongside them :) If this is your first time in Hawaii, ...

Maui Weather Is Very Localized Weather on Maui is very localized, so the average temperature doesn't really tell the whole story. Also, the rain tends to fall all at once like a flash food, so the quantity of rain isn't that relevant except for the windward shore (i.e. Hana) where it rains all the time. Key Aspects Determining the Weather You Will ...

Yes, since Honolulu is your first stop in the United States, that is where you need to collect your luggage, carry it through customs, and re-drop it for your onward flight. That's how it works for all international arrivals to any U.S. airport. The flight from Honolulu to San Diego is U.S. domestic.

While there's always an inherent possible risk with these types of sites (VBRO, AirBnb, even hostel websites) - for the most part, they work fine - otherwise they wouldn't work! Always look at any reviews on the property/owner - if any, and see if there have been any noted problems in the past. Perhaps Google the address or property as well, just to make ...

We recently took a trip to Hawaii and went to Hanauma Bay in Oahu. It was a lot of fun. What I liked was that it had several different sections to the bay. The farther you swim out, the more wildlife you will see. The water was rough when we went so we stayed in the area closest to the shore, but I still saw a turtle!

Pearl Harbor might be a little easier to get to when in Honolulu. There are regularly scheduled buses that go to Pearl Harbor. The ones you are looking for are Route 9, PH2, PH3, PH4, PH5. There is one free transfer with any one way fare and fare for an adult is $2.50 one way. The best I could find on Mauna Kea is the organized tour which will run about $...

Hotels usually have a full legally regulated rate (the one posted on the inside of the door inside the room), a walk in rate (what they charge if you just show up) and an advance booking rate. The full rate that is posted is usually equal to the walk in rate during peak season and, with the exception of a holiday surcharge (NYE, Xmas, etc), is the highest ...

You can rent bicycles or scooters to get around, but also keep in mind that your hotel will offer some kind of shuttle and the Maui bus makes 3 stops in Wailea and contrary to what was posted above, they are very timely (from my limited experience). In Wailea you have tennis, golf, water activities, etc., so you don't NEED a car but one is welcomed.

Those are great points. You can also rent a bike while on Maui or take the Maui Bus. The Maui Bus is inexpensive, I believe it is only $2 per ride, anywhere on the Island, but it is not typically on time. The hotels in Wailea also have great Luau's and often have other activities that you can sign up for as well. Check out the Maui Sailing Canoe as well - ...

If you enjoy golfing, the Old Blue golf course is a championship course and right in Wailea. Willie K is fun to go see - he's frequently performing at Mulligans, the Blue course restaurant. The Wailea boardwalk runs along the oceanfront and is a great place for a romantic walk and enjoying the sunset. If you're thinking of taking a tour of any kind, look ...

The Kona side of the Big Island has the most extensive coral reefs in the main islands. "Two-step" just outside of Pu'uohonua o Honaunau has an easy entry and has an extensive shallow reef top. It is frequented by turtles on the South side (towards the Place of Refuge) and Hawai'ian spinner dolphins frequently use the bay as a resting spot (they are ...

There is a not-too-difficult way. Buy a boat large enough to transport a car. Drive your car onto the boat. Have the boat sail to Hawaii with your car on it. Depending on how strict your definition of driving is, you may want to stay on the car and/or keep it on at all time, for instance circling around the main deck. Bring enough gas. Once you have ...

The correct answer is no, it is not possible to drive to Hawaii. However, you can have your car transported there by freight (ship) and drive around the island you have it shipped to. Visiting more than one island with your car would incur additional charges. If you're going for an extended stay you can ship other things in the container with your car. ...

Well as they say: "There is an app for that". There is apparently an application for iOS that can provide you with self-guided tour of Honolulu. There is also another self-guided walking tour of downtown Honolulu. All of the guided tours of Honolulu would actually require people to pay but it may be possible that the hotels would offer discounts or even ...

Lots of campgrounds, especially government run campgrounds and doubly especially low or no cost campgrounds, have limits on how many days you can stay there ...including all state campgrounds in Hawaii. The purpose is to control squatters, not specifically homeless, but folks who prefer to not pay rent or rv parking fees and take advantage of free camping. ...

I initially asked in a comment whether you were specifically asking, then realised it didn't matter. I'd found a New York Times article about hunting in Hawaii, but specifically on Oahu. However, the hunter guide that they mention, Hook You Up Outfitters, has a page on hunting hogs (about half way down) and they indeed include hunting options on Oahu, the ...
