I personally recommend pre-booking your Hawaii activities, tours and experiences. Here are the reasons why:
- Your time in Hawaii is limited and should be spent completely relaxed instead of worrying about finding a tour desk or wasting valuable holiday-time going online to book Hawaii tours.
- Hawaii is a busy destination year-round and the popular activities do book out ahead of time.
- If you don’t have some form of an itinerary to follow you are at risk of getting side-tracked, and subsequently missing out on the Hawaii activities you had hoped to do.
- Arranging Hawaii activities before arrival means you can undertake research and look at reviews to make better-informed choices.
If you prefer to be more spontaneous on vacations, at the very least pre-book your must-do activities!
TIP: If you are doing an activity that is weather dependent (like a helicopter flight or whale watching tour) book it for the start of your trip. Should the tour cancel due to poor weather, this gives you the flexibility to reschedule it for a later date during your stay.
