One of the best things to do in Oahu, for that matter, is to take to the water. From humpback whales migrating in the winter to pods of dolphins playfully swimming near the sandy shores along Ko Olina, the tropical waters of the Pacific Ocean hold innumerable treasures.
A 40-minute drive west from Waikiki takes you to Ko Olina, a low-key enclave on Oahu's leeward side known for its renowned hotels—the Ko Olina Four Seasons and the kid-friendly Aulani, Disney Resort & Spa. Once an ancient Hawaiian fishing village, Ko Olina was converted to a retreat for Hawaiian royalty. Today, the area is a relaxed alternative to the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Dolphins call the area surrounding Ko Olina home, and some of the best snorkel spots on Oahu reside here.
Wondering where to view Oahu's migrating whales in the wintertime? Spot these massive mammals while whale watching in Ko Olina—the North Pacific humpback whales travel great distances on their annual mating and birthing journey through Oahu's waters en route to Maui.
