    For "The Well-Heeled Golfer"

    by deecat Updated Jun 4, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the Maui Ritz-Carlton Kapalua Resort there are 54 championship holes of golf available, for a price. There is also a fine Golf Academy on the property.

    While we walked around exploring the resort, we took this photograph of one of the golf holes. We inquired about golf, and, not surprisingly, discovered that the cost was quite prohibitive for us. We would have to rent clubs, buy a glove, balls, a shirt with a collar and golf shoes. We could not even afford the price of a round of golf, any yet all the equipment. So, we passed.

    But, for those of you with money, go for it! They are fantastic courses.

    Equipment: Needed to golf on these courses:
    1. Money
    2. Golf Clubs
    3. Golf glove and spikeless golf shoes
    4. Proper attire: shirt with collar and slacks
    or a pair of shorts that reach just above the
    knee.
    5. Plenty of golf balls and tees

    It's best to golf in Hawaii in the early Fall or late Spring because of the weather.

    Free Tennis With the Condo

    by deecat Updated Jun 4, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While staying for a month at The Mahana Condominiums on Kaanapali Beach in Maui, we were able to use the tennis courts for free.

    We certainly took advantage of that "perk". Allan and I played together several times, and Allan played doubles with other men, most of whom were younger than he. However, he usually won the games. He is a "scrappy" player; he lets no shot go by!

    We were even able to play at night because the courts had lights.

    They were excellent hard courts, and we enjoyed playing on them.

    Equipment: Good pair of tennis shoes.
    Tennis Racket.
    Tennis Balls.
    Tennis shorts.
    Hat with a bill.
    Sun Glasses.
    Shirt with Collar.
    Water Bottled filled with cold water.

    Ramping was never so much fun!

    by TropicGirl77 Written Feb 18, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Thanks to another VT'er, (bigern) I checked up on the skateboard facility on Hickam AFB. I'm not into seeing the kiddos get hurt, so I usually watch long enough for them to show off their skills, and move on! There is a pond, and pit, and many other ramps in the open. One fee of $5 keeps you there until they close down for the evening ...

    Equipment: Bring your own equipment! They do have rental gear, but be warned ... they have an aweful odor about them!!! You can use the ramps with skateboard and blades, and even some ramps can be used for scooters and bicycles.

    Soccer, the sport of Hawaii

    by TropicGirl77 Written Jan 24, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Soccer seems to be the hot sport here on the islands, much as it has become very popular in the rest of the mainland states. Both of my sons have played in area teams, my oldest sticking it out for several season and his team making first in the silver division. In my opinion, this has taught youth discipline and dedication in staying with the team.

    Equipment: Many divisions take teams stateside for tournaments, but also do many teams fly over here for tournaments. Bring all your gear, as you will more than likely pay a higher price for fogotten items. Sports Authority is our main soccer sports store, though not limited to.

    ProBowl, Season Finale

    by TropicGirl77 Updated Jan 31, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Be there! This is always sold out, and be warned, get your tickets EARLY, or it's the Yellow section for you. Each of my family roots for a different team, so our section of the bleachers is highly competitive in itself.

    Equipment: No bags or backpacks, no outside food or drinks ... all must be left in your vehicle before you enter the stadium grounds for the game. WAIT ... but bring everything you need for a tailgate party, and plan on being there early for better parking spots. Late comers will find themselves parking in overflows, and when the game is over ... there will be TRAFFIC. Parking fee is $5.

    Scuba Paradise

    by diver-x Written Nov 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    So far, my favorite place to dive in Hawaii is on the Big Island, at Honaunau or Place of Refuge. It's a very popular spot but there's a reason for it: It's absolutely beautiful underwater! It's an interesting dive if you swim to the right with tons of fish and invertibrates to see and interesting coral formations. But if you swim to the left, you're in for a real treat. The pristine, towering, coral fingers go on and on as far as the eye can see, which that day was at least 120+ feet! Then there's a drop off that looks like it goes down for thousands of feet - you can't see the bottom. Words can't describe how incredible it looks. You have to see it yourself.

  • Zodiac Raft

    by jenbkr Written Oct 30, 2007

    Great trip on a zodiac raft through Hawaii Tours, jump on a zodiac and check out lava tubes, blow holes, caves and whales if you are there in January. It' a fourteen mile tour along the coast of Kona. We stopped at Catain Cook's and had an awesome lunch and snorkeled. When we arrived at Captain Cook's we anchored and then out of no where bam a whale ten feet away from the boat. Great time. The captain of the boat.. Yes his name was Jack!!! Dared me to eat some strange clam like thing off a rock inside a cave and I did it!!!! He was the greatest tour operator on the island!

    Scuba Diving with Aloha Dive Shop

    by claire1821 Written Nov 7, 2003

    Every little things is done to help you to be secure and happy with your diving.
    You will not have to take all the equipment to the boat, just the necessary (fines, mask and gear) every other things like the BCD or bottles are already in the boat.

    Instructors put your BCD and bottle on your shoulders, you just have to do a big giant leap and you are already in the water.

    Two boat locations : Koko Craters and Turtle Canyon where you can see turtles, rays, eels, colourful fishes like moray idols..

    Equipment: they provide everything.

    Hike and Bike

    by terps94 Written Apr 19, 2004

    While we're in Waikiki we decided to become a little adventurous but horse back riding is out of the question. So we decided to sign up for a downhill bike and waterfall hike tour. The bike portion is pretty easy but you get to see some beautiful sight.The bike tour guide is John Alford who wrote books about mountain biking in Hawaii. The 2 mile hike is very pretty , our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area. Unfortunately the waterfall wasnt flowing that good because of lack of rain but all in all this tour is awesome. The tour company offers more challenging bike tours and hiking for those who wants more strenous workout.

    Equipment: The bike is provided by the company and same with the hiking boots.

    Kayaking on many of the Hawaiian Islands

    by RoseAmano Written May 27, 2004

    There many areas among the islands where you can rent kayak and gear for a few islands along a river or where river meets the beach. This photo was taken in northern Oahu. Kauai also has excellent places as well.

    Good exercise for the arms, too, especially if you are in a hurry to return the rental gear before deadline ;-)

    Grab your sticks

    by Ike_2005 Written Jan 2, 2005

    The golfing in Hawaii is the best I've ever seen. I usually played the military courses which I recommend Navy/Marine, Barbers Point, and Hickam golf courses. For those that can't get to the military courses, I recommend Waikele Country Club and Pearl City Country Club. You can't beat the weather for golfing in Hawaii, and for the military, you can't beat the price.

    Equipment: You can rent and buy everything you need at the club houses.

    Horseback Riding

    I found horsebackriding in the wildness pretty extreme! It was just awsome and if I'm ever back to Hawaii I'm going to do this mad thing again.

    Equipment: It's good to be dressed well because of the bugs. :-)

    Surfing the North Shore

    by Davidp1952 Written Mar 5, 2003

    The North Shore is famous for it's large waves. We were hoping to see the 20 ft waves when we visited but they were 'only' 7 - 10 feet the day we were there. It was still an amazing site.
