Comparison between attractions on various Hawaiian Islands

Jump to last reply

OK, I'll be traveling alone and in Hawaii for 5 weeks. I'll have a week each on Oahu and Kauai, then 12 days each on The Big Island and Maui.

I will be driving to Hana for three nights.
I will be doing a horseback ride to the Waipio Valley on BI.
I will be staying at Volcano on BI for three nights.
I will have a car everywhere except most of my time at Waikiki.

But while there are hundreds of helicopter rides, special day trips, boat trips, ziplines, etc, I certainly can't do them all -- especially when most are SO expensive.
When I search I mainly find people who rave about a certain trip or a particular zip line, or a particular helicopter company, but it seems they were only talking about one island. I guess what I'm looking for is someone who has done ziplines on several islands and can say "this one on ____ is by far the best" or someone who can say "the boat trip from ____ to ____ is much better than similar ones from ____ and _____", "do a helicopter ride from ______ and all others on the other islands will pale by comparison".

So what I'm really asking is -- where can I get the most bang for my buck? I want to experience a lot of things, but already blowing the budget just staying so long. If a particular activity is far better at one place than similar ones on other islands, then please tell me. Oh, and please don't keep reminding me of all the two for one deals. Those really hurt when I'm only one to begin with.

(Dates -- September and early October)
