In these articles we do some exciting things! We traveled all over the state going on a boat out to the Kaneohe sandbar for a BBQ, a standup paddle boarding trip to some small islands off of Lani Kai Beach and then a glider ride over the north shore of Oahu. We also went fishing on the islands of Maui as well as the Big Island.
When you're in the middle of downtown Honolulu it is hard to believe that in just a few minute drive you can be in the middle of the jungle, without another person in sight.
The sport of Parasailing was was given birth during an experiment by a French skydiving instructor named Piere Lamoigne. Piere was looking for an easier way to get his students into the air then dropping them out of a plane when he first tied a parachute onto a rope behind his car.
Until I got to experience a ride on a glider for myself I had no idea how cool these machines are. When to tow line dropped and we were on our own we really were quietly coasting through the air like a bird.
The Mokuleia Islands (commonly referred to by locals as "The Mokes") off the eastern shoreline of Oahu are one of the most picturesque locations in the state.
My girlfriends sister and her boyfriend were on the island for a few weeks and we thought it might be fun to let the girls go do a spa day while the boys go out for an afternoon bottom fishing trip.
I remember really wanting to be a fisherman when I was small then getting bored of it when I realized that the shore fishing does not have the same amount of action as you get when you go out on the deep sea.
Many people that visit Oahu leave the island thinking that the entire thing is covered in a dense urban sprawl, similar to what is found in Honolulu. However, for those that are daring enough to explore what lies outside of the city there are some amazing sites that are actually very close and easy to access.
Sea life park is an aquarium center that is similar to Sea World, but on a much smaller scale. Here there are many things to see and do including: penguins, seals, turtles, all kinds of fish, and a large pool where you can swim and interact with dolphins.
It all started one day when I decided to take a walk down the whole length of Waikiki Beach, starting down by the aquarium and working my way towards Ala Moana.
