Between the land and the sea, activities on O'ahu are far-ranging. On land, you can bike, golf, or hike, or even go ice skating if you'd enjoy a hint of cold-weather mixed with the warmth of the Isles. In the island's sparkling waters, try snorkeling or surfing; another alternative is interacting with dolphins at Dolphin Quest. For a more educational bent, consider the Dole Pineapple Plantation and Maze or the Hawai'i Children's Discovery Center. Finally, to experience O'ahu from in the air, parasailing and skydiving are adrenaline-pumping options.
