Hawaiian cruises are great for couples, families, or even a solo adventure. And, what better way to make the most of your trip than to indulge in a few offshore excursions!?

While your cruise line may offer many offshore excursions for you to participate in while in port, there are plenty of third party options that offer an even bigger array of adventures for less than you would pay with your cruise line.

Along with a wider variety and lower cost, booking your own personal offshore excursion will give you a more intimate tour with a smaller group of people, allowing you to interact more with the tour guide. Considering there are countless things to try in Hawaii, it is worth looking into a company like Shore Excursions Group for a wide variety of offshore experiences.

The choices may seem endless, which can be overwhelming. Here are the top five Hawaii shore excursions you should definitely consider looking into.

  • Akaka Falls Skyline Eco Adventure: Ziplining over the breathtaking mountain views and waterfalls of Hilo is sure to be a memorable experience of your Hawaiian vacation. Before the ziplining part of the tour begins, you will experience a driving tour of interesting places around Hilo with an experienced guide.
  • Pearl Harbor and Honolulu City Tour: Experience the history of Honolulu and visit the breathtaking palace of Iolani and witness the resting place of the 1,177 crew members lost in the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. This beautiful tour is perfect for history lovers.
