Beyond surfing, you can explore the ocean by taking a group outrigger canoe ride off of Waikīkī Beach. If you’re looking for something fun for the whole family to do, try snorkeling and swimming at one of Oʻahu’s many beautiful beaches. Take a sunset cruise or sailing excursion and you might spot a humpback breach during whale watching season (December through May). Sports fisherman can also charter a boat and fish for Pacific Blue Marlin, ‘Ahi (yellowfin tuna), Ono (wahoo) or Mahimahi.
Satisfy your sporty side with other water activities in Oʻahu, including jet-skiing, parasailing, wind surfing, kite surfing, wakeboarding and bodyboarding (boogie boarding). Stand up paddle boarding (SUP)—where surfers stand on a larger board using a paddle to maneuver—has also become a popular alternative to surfing in the islands. With so many exciting activities, you'll understand why adventure thrives in the deep blue Pacific surrounding Oʻahu.

"This short stretch of coast has more than 20 breaks gentle enough for the novice or just tricky enough for the experienced surfer. The waters are warm. The waves are forgiving and long enough to let you go the distance. Every visitor to Oʻahu should ride a wave."
