A March 1996 trip
to Oahu by watsonmonkeysmom
Quote: Junior year of high school, my buddies and I took a trip to Oahu, Hawaii. We had a great time, the people were very friendly, the native food was delicious, and the weather was perfect.
After the show was over we were invited to go spear fishing with a couple of the performers, and it was awesome. They are a fun loving culture.
Oahu had a ton of places to swim and snorkel...but look around for the best price if you are renting equipment. The further you are away from Honolulu, the cheaper it will be, with the exception of surf boards (on the North Shore they are expensive everywhere).
Be patient, Hawaiians are in no hurry to get anywhere.
