Travel Expert Tip
The larger your group, the earlier you’ll want to book your trip. This is especially true now that post-pandemic getaways are in high demand!
What to Do in Hawaii: Best Group-Friendly Activities
It’s true that there’s something for everyone in Hawaii, but the islands do lean more in favour of the adventurous, the outdoorsy, and the hungry. If that sounds like your crew, you’re in the right place!
Hawaii is absolutely bursting with natural wonders. You can’t go wrong with visiting volcanoes, wandering to waterfalls, hiking through national parks, and enjoying beautiful beaches.
There are also heaps of outdoor sports to enjoy as a group: golfing, snorkelling, kayaking, surfing, and cycling just scratch the surface. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, a luau is always on the table, along with guided tastings of local wines, whiskeys, beers, and ciders.
Enrich your getaway with trips to galleries, museums, and plenty of guided tours. Speaking of tours, let’s dive into our top group-friendly recommendations!
Best Group Tours: Our Experts’ Top Picks
Having flexibility in your itinerary is a good rule of thumb, but so is including at least one or two experiences that your whole group can enjoy together. Plan the highlight of your Hawaii trip around a group surfing lesson, spotting dolphins and tropical fish from a catamaran, or an epic sightseeing adventure.
