If you’re planning to travel to a popular tropical paradise like Hawaii, you need to book some things in advance. Plane tickets and hotel reservations, of course, should be made weeks or even months before your arrival. You may think you’re all ready to go once these are taken care of, but the truth of the matter is, if you want to guarantee yourself the best time in the Hawaiian Islands, you should pre-plan as many elements of the experience as possible.

While booking restaurant reservations may be a little dicey, especially if you’re not familiar with the wide range of options, you can—and should—reserve your spots for any of the numerous activities that you plan to participate in.

The Hawaiian Islands are more than just beautiful to look at, they’re exciting to explore, and there’s a multitude of ways you can do that, but if you don’t plan ahead, you may not get the chance.

Reserving Your Adventure

Let’s look at some of the fantastic activities the islands have to offer, especially those that you don’t want to wait until the last minute to reserve.


Arguably the most sought-after activity in Hawaii, ziplining is a thrilling experience that lets you fly high over the lush terrain of the gorgeous tropical islands. With so many people clamoring to experience the adrenaline-pumping fun, it may be difficult to add a ziplining adventure to your itinerary at the last minute.




Dolphin Snorkeling Swim

The ocean may seem endless, but the number of boats that sail you out to your snorkeling experience is not. They fill up quickly, regardless of the season. People love snorkeling in the warm waters of the Pacific and, especially during peak months, you can bet these experiences sell out, sometimes weeks in advance!




Helicopter Tours

Just like with snorkeling, helicopters have limited space. Actually, tour helicopters are even more limited on space than the snorkeling boats are, so the imperative to reserve your spot is even greater. If you’re eager for those aerial views of the tropical islands, don’t assume you can just walk in and be guaranteed a flight.

Book Today, Enjoy Tomorrow

You’re coming to the Hawaiian Islands to get away from the stresses of everyday life. Make sure your vacation is truly stress-free by reserving the activities you know you want to experience well in advance. Even if you prefer spontaneity when vacationing, preparing a few activities ahead of time still allows you plenty of time to explore on your own.
