First time traveling to Hawaii

Jump to last reply

I have read a couple of responses to similar posts. They have been most helpful. I probably am going to ask something that has been asked before. Sorry. I am going to fly into Honollulu on the 26th of April and am staying on the big island at a Marriott resort. I understand from posts it is good to get a car. Can you provide some guidance on getting from Honollulu to the big island and once there what are the hints and things you would have to offer about what to do. I already plan on doing a snorkling trip with kona Storkling. Want to see the falls and the volcano. It would be fun to learn to surf or do something that the typical tourist doesn't. I am an adventurer who might actually do a windkite off of the cliff if I had the chance so nothing is out of bounds. The hotel has a luau but I wonder if there isn't a more personal one on the big island. I see that there are some on the other islands.

How hard is it to get to Pearl to see the memorial from the big island? I am staying 6 days. should I try to do another island?

Thanks so much for your thoughts
Sam
