There is an abundance of hiking opportunities on the big island! There are hiking areas near some waterfalls, and other attractions, as well as at the volcanoes. Check the brochures closely to find out more on the ones you're interested in. We hiked to the recent lava flow at Kilauea. We hiked from our car to the site where the rangers were sharing information about the current lava flow (approximately 1 hour roundtrip).
Equipment: Daytime hiking at Kilauea: bring lots of water, durable walking shoes (thick soles) head covering, and don't forget your camera (both types!)
Night time hiking in Kilauea: same as above, but be sure to bring a flashlight, and hat is not necessary unless to keep your head dry should it decide to rain.

Although Oahu and it's north shore gets all the attention, there is surfing on the Big Island also.
If you don't surf, you can also get lessons from the Hawai'i Lifeguard Surf Instructors.
Equipment: If you already surf but left your board at home, you can rent one from either Honolua Surf Co.(329-1001) or Pacific Vibrations(329-3140)

Sea kayaking at the Captain Cook monument is a great way of getting to the great snorkling at the Monument.
Equipment: Rent your kayak at the South end of the bay from Emu and Kai's.
