Outdoor Fun

The Honolulu Zoo is the only zoo in Hawaii. It features over 900 different types of tropical and international animals such as lions, zebras, orangutans, Komodo dragons, and Nile crocodiles.

The Waikiki Aquarium displays over 500 species of mostly Hawaiian and Pacific area marine animals. Endangered Hawaiian monk seals, octopus, jellyfish, zebra sharks, and tropical fish swim among live corals for everyone to see.

The Foster Botanical Garden is the oldest botanical garden in Hawaii and was started in 1853 with several species of trees and plants new to the state. Today collections still include some of those species planted at the garden's start and has grown to contain a superb orchid garden, butterfly garden, and many rare and endangered tropical plants.

The Lyon Arboretum is a living laboratory for many students and researchers dedicated to enhancing tropical plant and forest life in Hawaii. The arboretum is run by University of Hawaii and is located in the most easily accessible rain forest on the island near Manoa Valley. With over 5,000 species, the university strives to inform the general public and preserving Hawaii's diverse plant life.

Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve is a sheltered bay in a volcanic crater and home to over 400 species of fish and Green sea turtles. This is one of the most popular areas for snorkeling as the water is extremely clear and calm, but has suffered major overuse over many years and is now a fairly delicate ecosystem- caution must be taken not to disturb the living coral reefs or touching of marine life, however the snorkeling and beach activities are still available and worth seeing.

Diamond Head State Monument, one of the most recognizable landmarks in Hawaii, is a volcanic crater surrounded by a tuff ring, or hardened ash from a long ago eruption, and was once the home of one of Hawaii's first military installations, Fort Ruger. Today, Diamond Head is a popular hike for the magnificent views of Waikiki and the Pacific Ocean. The 0.8 mile hike is not difficult, but strenuous as it climbs nearly 600 feet in elevation and only some of the trail is paved.

Submarine tours off Waikiki are a popular and unique excursion; shipwrecks, coral reefs, and marine life such as sharks, stingrays, and turtles are possible sightings at 100 feet underwater.
