Best Hawaii YouTube Videos
As the year comes to a close I like to recap of the Best of the Year. Here I have compiled my list of the Best Hawaii YouTube Videos of 2014. Drumroll please for the Top 14 Hawaii YouTube Videos of 2014!
1. Highlights of Hawaii
This is a Hawaii Discount video that highlights several fun Hawaii Activities. Warning – after you watch this Hawaii video you may find yourself booking a flight to the Aloha State!
2. Tatiana Weston-Webb
Tatiana Weston-Webb is an 18 year old professional surfer from Kauai. She won the ASP GoPro challenge and took home $15K with this video of a barrel at Cloudbreak in Fiji. This year she earned a spot on the 2015 World Championship Tour so get ready for more great things from Tatiana Weston-Webb.
3. Pearl Harbor
This video takes you on a beautiful tour of Pearl Harbor including the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, USS Arizona Memorial, the USS Bowfin submarine, the USS Missouri and the Pacific Aviation Museum.
4. Paradise Helicopter Tours
The Paradise Helicopters Doors Off Oahu Experience is a 60 minute flight that departs from the Hilton Turtle Bay Resort. See spectacular Sacred Falls, the Kahana Rainforest, Kaneohe Bay, majestic Koko Head, Makapu’u Lighthouse, stunning Hanauma Bay, iconic Diamond Head, world famous Waikiki, Pearl Harbor, Waianae Coast, Waimea Bay, and Oahu’s famous North Shore on this Oahu Helicopter Tour.
5. Lava Flow heads toward the village of Pahoa
The June 27 Kilauea Lava flow slithered toward the village of Pahoa for months and eventually caused destruction.
6. Hawaii Horseback Riding
This video shows the gorgeous views seen on Princeville Ranch Adventures Horseback Riding Tours. Princeville, located on the North Shore of Kauai, is one of the most beautiful places in the world and a great place to experience Hawaii horseback riding.
7. Waimea Valley Flood Surf
After heavy rain in Waimea Valley, Hawaii locals dug a ditch to release the flood waters into the ocean. The ditch created a flow of water that made for epic surfing.
8. Kauai Tubing
If surfing a man made ditch isn’t your cup of tea then you should try drifting along a man made irrigation canal. With Kauai Backcountry Tubing you float down a hand dug irrigation canal with amazing tunnels and flumes. Kauai Tubing is one of the most popular Kauai Activities. It is a fun and unique way to experience Kauai.
9. Hawaiian Air Hawaii Time-lapse Video
Hawaiian Air gave a Christmas gift to all of us with this stunning time-lapse video. Enjoy a trip through Hawaii in about 2 minutes!
10. Star of Honolulu
This is a great video because it gives you an idea of what to expect on the Star of Honolulu Dinner Cruise. After seeing the delicious food, gorgeous views and fun you will want to experience the Star of Honolulu for yourself!
I was in awe the first time I saw this video of Humpback Whales in Hawaii. The video angles from the drone allow viewers to get up close and personal with the majestic whales. The only way to get closer is to experience Hawaii Whale Watch Tours!
12. Kauai ATV
The slogan for Kauai ATV Tours is “Do Something Dirty” and by the end of this Kauai ATV Tour you may be covered with mud. This is a great video because it captures both the beautiful scenic views and the muddy mud of this fun adventure.
13. Swimming with Dolphins
Swimming with Dolphins is such a magical experience. I have been on several Swimming with Wild Dolphin tours but I have never captured them on video quite like this.
14. Lei Greetings
Lei Greetings are the best way to start a Hawaii Vacation. This video takes you behind the scenes of a Honolulu Airport Lei Greeting.
Bonus Video – Waikele Christmas Lights 2014
In the spirit of the holidays I had to include Waikele Christmas Lights 2014. Every night from now until January 6, 2015 the neighborhood puts on a light show. The show includes 14 holiday songs, outdoor speakers and over 60,000 fixtures. Not only does the neighborhood provide a dazzling light show but it raises money for the Next Step Homeless Shelter and the Hawaiian Humane Society.
After seeing all of the amazing videos on the list made with GoPro Cameras I am going to ask Santa for the GoPro Hero 4 Silver. I can’t wait to capture the beauty of Hawaii in 2015.
