go! which offers direct flights from Kauai to Honalulu and Kahului but also connecting flights to the other islands. Other airlines providing inter-island flights from Kauai are Hawaiian Airlines and Island Air. Flight times from Kauai to the other islands is relatively short with a flight to Honalulu taking just 15 to 20 minutes and the furtherest flight to the Big Island taking nearly an hour and a half.

Island Cruises

If you want to explore several of the islands without spending a lot of time at airports, a relaxing way to island hop is with a cruise. Island cruises can offer luxurious surroundings and stress free travel in addition to the opportunity to see several of the islands in a relatively short space of time. There are a number of cruise companies offering itineraries which take in around four of the islands. Most cruises are for a duration of 7 to 14 nights, many departing from Honalulu and spend one or two days at each port, giving you the option to set off and explore each new island or perhaps take a break from island adventures to relax on board for a day. One advantage of taking a cruise as a way of island hopping is that you can enjoy the unique sea vantage point of the scenery of these beautiful islands during the day or at sunset over dinner while you cruise. If you think a cruise is for you but you are not sure which of the islands you want to visit, there are numerous island guides online to provide inspiration.

Day Tripping

Perhaps you want to spend the majority of your vacation on Kauai – and who could blame you – but you are interested in a small island hop just to explore something different. Island hopping doesn’t have to take days or weeks; it is possible to hop to another island for a day trip. Possibly the best island suited to visiting in one day is the nearest island Oahu. With such a short flight time, you could easily fly into Honalulu in the morning and return in the evening. Certainly a popular day trip from Kauai is a visit to the famous Waikiki beach or those interested in a bit of history can take in Pearl Harbour, the Arizona Memorial and U.S.S. Missouri; all located on Oahu and can be organised as a guided tour or you can make your own travel arrangements to give you the freedom to explore at your leisure. Alternatively, you could head to the North Shore of the island and Polynesian Cultural Centre. For something really unique, why not take a helicopter tour of Oahu, experiencing the breathtaking scenery of jungles, beaches and ocean from above.
