Best Hawaii Activities – Top 13 for Aloha Friday the 13th

Hawaii Activities – Top 13 Posts

What comes to your mind when you think of Friday the 13th? Fear? Superstition? I am a firm believer that you create your own destiny so I am not fearful of Friday the 13th. To counteract the negativity of today’s date I have taken a walk down memory lane with my list of the Top 13 Blog Posts about the best Hawaii Activities! Just click on the titles of the Hawaii Activities to read more about each adventure!


1. Koko Head Crater Hike – Never Give Up

Top Step of Koko Head

If you want to associate Friday the 13th with fear, Hiking Koko Head may be one of the scariest things I have done in Hawaii. When I was at the bottom and looked up at the hike before me I was frightened because I thought I would never make it to the top. With great friends and even encouragement from strangers I made it and the difficulties I endured made the view from the top even sweeter.


2. Koloa Zipline – Kauai Zipline Tours

A few years ago I conquered my fear of heights on a Big Island Zipline Tour. Since then I have been on a variety of Hawaii Ziplines but Koloa Zipline on Kauai is one of my favorites. The scenic views, the personable guides and the 1/2 mile zip at the end made this one of the most fun and memorable Hawaii Activities.


3. Big Island Helicopter Tours

This post about Big Island Helicopter Tours is special to me because the Traveling Trio Series was the beginning of my blogging career. I was able to spend a week in paradise with two of my best friends and we had many great adventures. Flying over an active volcano was definitely one of the highlights.  Be sure to check out the post for some great shots of the lava!


4. Manta Ray Night Snorkeling – Majestic Manta Ballet

Manta Ray Night Snorkeling may be the most unique Hawaii Activity I have ever experienced. If you are going to Kona I highly recommend putting Manta Ray Night Snorkeling at the top of your Hawaii Activities list.


5.  Chief’s Luau at Sea Life Park


I have been to numerous Hawaii Luaus but there is something about Chief’s Luau at Sea Life Park that makes it unlike any other Hawaiian Luau. The beautiful setting and the hilarious Chief are just two things about Chief’s Luau that have me returning to Chief’s Luau over and over again.

What To Pack For Your Hawaii Vacation lists the essentials needed for a Hawaii Vacation. The key to packing for Hawaii is to pack light and leave extra room in your suitcase for all of the goodies you are going to want to bring home.  The OluKai flip flops (slippahs) pictured above are my favorite shoes and are an essential item for me in Hawaii.

Today instead of focusing on the superstitions and fear associated with Friday the 13th I am celebrating Aloha Friday the 13th with a Lava Flow. I am reminiscing about the best Hawaii Activities and the adventures I have been lucky enough to experience! Cheers and Aloha!
