Surprised? Well, it is possible to visit Hawaii with your kids because of the variety of fun activities that indulge not only adults, but also children. It is not a rumor that Hawaii vacations are not only meant for couples or adventurers, but are also for perfect family fun; obviously with good reasons. A multitude of attractions as well as things to do amidst the tropical climate and politely cultural inhabitants surely amuse one and all right from toddlers to youngsters.
Just come out from the opinion that the Hawaii islands are just romantic gateways. Right from the cooling beaches to natural vistas, fun things to do here are no less in numbers. In fact, I think that accommodating to several of the great sites into your small holiday plan will prove confusing. A mix of beaches, parks, and treks tracing the beauty of Hawaii vacations normally play all the game, but you also must ensure that your kids’ needs are fulfilled wherever you stay.
Remember, at last, they are kids and so will get very bored if you stick to similar kind of fun. You might have just begun to enjoy, but might be on the doors of boredom.
As Hawaii vacations can be expensive, start from choosing your destination and then accordingly book a cheap air flight for a fly mid-week (cheapest), reasonable accommodation, and discounted tours. Different resorts offer various family vacation packages, which include kids’ camps taking care of the needs of young to old children. In many of these hotels, there are certified childcare attendants under whom your children play on the beach, learn swimming, and know about making the cultural garlands or other crafts. However, the Hawaii vacations are not confined to these resort activities. Take your kids to the following places on this volcanic archipelago.
Vacationing on this island and not exploring this beach is like committing a great mistake. Waikiki Beach is one of the world’s best beaches and so, do expect much crowd here. However, it is still worth a visit because of its memorable surfboarding, snorkeling, surfing, sand castle building, and sun tanning.
Sea Life Park
This excellent aquatic highlight is at a distance of 15 miles from Waikiki. Nestled on the picturesque Oahu’s Makapuu Point, this park holds a large aquarium wherein you can spot dolphins, sea lions, stingrays, turtles, sharks, and much more. Besides this tour, your kids will love several entertaining as well as informative highlights like dancing dolphins, singing sea lions, and performing penguins. Also, explore the Turtle Lagoon, Sea Lion Feeding Pool, Reef Exhibit, Pirate’s Lagoon, and Bird Sanctuary. And yes, how can one miss swimming with the dolphins and snorkeling along with the stingray?
Hawaiian Waters Adventure Park
Give a chance to your kids to invoke their hidden adventurous instinct by bringing them at this water park. Home to myriad of adventures, this park offers fun rides, inner tube rides on 4 foot waves, six storeys cascading speed slides, a vast wave pool, tube cruise plunging down a long river, waterfalls, multi-level activities, interactive playground loaded with water cannons, and pool with seven family slides. However, these are not the only highlights here. Fun seems to be endless here. Therefore, your kids might become stubborn and might refuse to come out from here. This is a problem, but a good one to face!
I am sure that this will be the most loved attraction among the others! It is really fascinating to go down the sea and watch the marine life without getting wet. This is possible via the Atlantic Submarine – a thrilling adventure for 45 minutes taking 64 passengers at a time under the water until 100 feet down the Waikiki reef surface. While you and your kids are inside this submarine, you can spot the outside colorful creatures such as fish, sea turtles, and coral reefs along with the sunken shipwrecks. The submarine is fully AC and offers big view ports.
If this is your first visit, you should know what to pack. Clothes such as pants, T-shirts, warm coat, socks, beachwear, and towels along with the sports equipment are a must. Camera is an obvious thing to carry, but also take the batteries/charger. I would also recommend carrying Travelers Checks for purchasing incidental items and that they are relatively safer. To maintain the budget, just carry what you want to use or spend. In addition, first aid kit and insect repellent are a must!
