It can be hard to plan a whole vacation months in advance. Sometimes it’s better to leave your days a little open in the event that you need to spend some time resting from jetlag or you find something really fun to do that just wasn’t in the guide books. We’ve picked out the best Oahu experiences that you can book on the same day or a day before. Learn more about some exciting Oahu things to do and book them last minute!
Kapolei, West Oahu
Reserve your morning for Ko Olina Adventure’s catamaran snorkel sail. This experience will see you snorkeling with Hawaiian sea turtles at Turtle Town, swimming with spinner dolphins, and sighting migrating humpback whales in season—basically all your water-related to-dos in one go! This tour includes lunch, drinks, and all snorkeling equipment—and departs a short 30-minute drive from Honolulu.
Departs from: Ko Olina Marina, Kapolei
Kunia, Central Oahu
Looking for something fun to do to fill your afternoon? Check out Manulele Distillers’s authentic Hawaiian rum on their tasting tour. Try different types of rum and learn how their rum is made using only locally sourced ingredients. About a half hour drive from Honolulu, this magical spot is well worth the trip.
Waialua, North Shore
From all the unique Oahu things to do, horseback riding on the North Shore is something you can’t miss. This horseback riding company takes same-day bookings, so all you need to do is figure out how to get to Waialua on Oahu’s North Shore. This picturesque trail ride goes alongside the ocean.
