Been a few years and sure some things have changed but here is a few I would go see.
Rent a car and be your own tour guide with a map. This way you are not on their schedule.
Pearl Harbor Polynesian Cultural Center Waimai Falls and State Park Diamond Head Volcano and National Cemetery Dole Pinapple Plantation .. the whipped pineapple cream will make you come home and slap Tom The Makaha coast (leeward) .. this is "Old Hawaii" as you can get on Oahu Maybe a glider ride from Dillinger Field North Shore .. don't expect the big waves, they are at full bore from Nov to Jan www.hilohattie.com/ ... You can get you hula skirt and flowered shirt here Blow Hole on the winward coast .. yes I kn ow you have seen a bunch of blowholes on here, but this one is neat
Watch the tourist trap restuarants .. you can spend a fortune on food. For lunch, try the food court at the Ala Mona Mall.
For dinner try www.charthousehonolulu.com/ .. It's as reasonable priced as you can ger on Waikiki and the food and view at the yatch club harbor is great
Use to do night dives off of the rocks in the bottom two pics. Got lots of lobster and parrot fish. Every once in a while lucked out and got some menapache (big eyers) which is the best tasting fish I have ever [put in my mouth. Thanks for the pics Ray. Hope y'all had a great time.
