Inter-island flights from Oahu are a great way to expand your vacation experience and see more of Hawaii. The islands offer national park beauty, volcanic landscapes and coastal vistas, and the flight times are ridiculously short - it takes just 40 minutes or so to fly from Oahu to either Maui, the Big Island or Kauai. Inter-island day trips from Oahu are typically the complete package, including return flights, informative guided commentary, taxes and air-conditioned coach transport.
Kauai from Oahu
Known as the Garden Isle and flaunting its volcanic origins, the island of Kauai provides perhaps the biggest contrast to Oahu. Kauai's waterfalls and rivers are legendary, as the island receives most of the planet’s rainfall. Scenic Waimea Canyon is the highlight of a visit, formed by the pounding waters of the Wailua River. A Kauai island tour also reveals fern grottoes, palm groves and sugar mills, lava tubes and Polynesian landmarks.
