Scuba diving! I always wanted to try it, but my husband was chicken. So my dad went with me.
I was a bit surprised to find out that there are a lot of people whole really do have a fear of breathing under water---with an air tank , of course! My husband refuses to even use a snorkel. But we did get him to do the free resort course and he seemed to have gotten the hang of it. But he still elected not to go out into the ocean. The company had a money back gaurantee---if you went out and didn't love it, they would bring you back in and not charge you for it.
I was also very surprised how easy it is to breathe with scuba gear. The pressurized air really flows into your lungs freely. Scuba diving is actually easier than snorkeling in that the surf didn't toss us around.
It is expensive---about $110 each. We got a 2 for 1 discount by listening to a timeshare presentation.
Getting up close and personal to the fish was fascinating to me. I found it exhilerating!
Equipment: I forget the name of the company we went with, but there are a lot of them. I would expect they all have excellent equipment. But don't think you'll save money and get something cheaper. Make sure the mask fits properly so water stays out. Do use a wet suit---even in Hawaii the water can be chilling.
Don't forget to take a camera!
