Extreme Land and Ocean Activities in Hawaii
When an adventurer travels, they are looking for one thing: excitement! And when visiting Hawaii, seasoned thrill seekers and adventure lovers have plenty to choose from. There are plenty of options to choose from and plenty of choices to get your heart racing. The big draw to a place like Hawaii is that you aren’t confined to adventures on land or sea, rather you can find extreme activities for both, and the top options are nothing to turn your nose up at. Extreme land and ocean activities in Hawaii take place all over the islands, but two of the most extreme are on the island of Oahu.
Starting with the extreme land activities, there is one choice that is incredibly tough, will wear you out, and provides a view of Oahu that makes the difficult trek to the summit more than worth it. Hiking up Koko Head Crater is no easy feat, and if you are the type that needs something difficult to do, this is it. Even seasoned hikers hesitate at the base of the extinct volcano, staring up at a climb that should not be underestimated.
The only way to the top is up the leftover rail that begins at the base and ends at the summit, formerly used during World War II to get soldiers to the top of the crater to keep watch over the island. Now, the track is used to climb, totaling more than 1,000 rail ties to get to the top; and while the beginning is manageable, you’ll have quite the time when the slope of the crater steepens and you’re climbing the last little bit before finding the reward.
Out in the ocean, there is one extreme activity that reigns supreme, and it is certainly not for the faint of heart. Head out to sea to meet the king of the ocean, the top of the food chain, and the one that strikes fear into anyone. On Oahu’s North Shore, you can swim with sharks, in their natural habitat, while the ocean’s most feared predator swims just inches away. Protecting you is a state of the art shark cage that keeps you in, and the sharks out, giving you a close up view of a variety of sharks. There is nothing that compares to this daring adventure, and it is sure to satisfy your need for an extreme activity in Hawaii.
