We are starting to plan a trip to Hawaii for around 17 nights, arriving in very late 2014 (probably 29 December). We have two kids who will be 8 years old. I have been reading lots about Hawaii but just can't make a decision about where to visit.
After arriving in Oahu from Australia we will probably fly on to one of the other islands, and then finish with 7 nights in Waikiki. So, do we just see one island (plus Waikiki) or see a bit of two? I love the idea of Kauai (Na Pali Coast and Hanalei) but am concerned about the rough seas/weather. I think the boys like the idea of Volcanoes National Park, but I am not sure about the rest of the Big Island. We plan to swim, do a bit of snorkelling, take a boat trip, maybe do an ATV tour, and other kid friendly activities. Any assistance with a possible itinerary would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
