Whale Watching is one of the most exciting thing you can do in Hawaii. Seeing the world’s biggest mammals putting on a little show is an amazing experience. You can spot Blue whales, Bryde´s whales, Sperm whales, Fin whales, sometimes even the Killer whales. They say you can also hear whale's sing from the shore.Make it Happen: The best time to see the whales in Hawaii are between November and April. You could also go see whales in Sri Lanka during the same time.

Pololu Valley Lookout
Hike time: 20 mins. Not the kind of beach you go to for basking and bathing the day away, but a tranquil place of contemplation in a wild, lush, untamed and unpopulated valley at the north end of Hawaii’ Island. Most tourists opt to visit Waipi’o Valley so this is a great place for seclusion, I didn’t see anyone else when I was there but noticed that some campsites had been setup at some point so it might be a great option for an overnight stay. To get there drive north on Highway 270 until you get to a the end and you will be rewarded with a gorgeous view over Pololu valley and the rugged Kohala Coast. From there I highly suggest taking the hike down to the beach. The trail is a rough switchback, dropping 400 feet rather quickly so you should be moderately fit or the way up will be a challenge. The valley is privately owned so you should stay close to the beach. You can cross the stream 80-120 feet inland and can usually find a stone ford in that area to cross easily. It’s not recommended that you swim here as the beach lies at the channel connecting Hawaii and Maui, bringing strong currents and rip tides, even the strongest swimmers can easily be caught and swept away.
