Unsurprisingly, very warm - no wonder Hawaii is such a popular vacation destination! However, depending on the side of the island you are on, you will experience very different temperatures and weather. This unique terrain offers sunny beaches to the west, tropical showers to the north, and some freezing cold weather on the top of the craters such as Haleakala. Pack alternative clothing if you're going on an excursions.
Although in terms of land area it's one of the smallest US states, it's not necessarily easy to get around Hawaii in a small amount of time - there are quite a few islands with so much to see. If you'd like to get a lot out of your trip, plan two weeks and stay at least three days per island.

What people are saying about Hawaii
We got to see a flock of 13 manta rays on our dive, by far one of the coolest experiences I’ve had to date. The tour operators were so much fun, extremely knowledgeable, made us feel safe and had quite a bit of humor to quell any nerves. The boat ride over to the site and back was set to a fun playlist and it was a nice touch to have some beverages available. Would do this again in a heartbeat!
Had a great time on the trail. Did the audio tour. Was very informative. Learned the history of diamond Head and how the trail was pain stakenly built. Drink plenty of water though. Audio tour is slow and it is hot on the trail. If the wind is blowing you will cool off quick once you reach the top. Hold your hat. It might fly off. Great times. Beautiful view.
Very educational. Learned a lot about the world at the time. The point of view of both sides. The hardships the survivors endured. How war was waged and how it changed. Air craft carriers became the new big gun. Staff was very well informed and professional. Everything was ran efficient and on time.
The crew was great, friendly, knowledgeable, went over safety thoroughly before we left and made the trip very fun. No reflection on the crew but the marine life at the crater was a little lacking, the turtles over at “Turtle Town” were absolutely amazing! Would definite recommend this crew!
This excursion was a great time. We snorkeled with several turtles and around coral reef (Turtle Arches). My wife and I have never kayaked before, but Matt gave us ample instruction and made us feel safe the entire trip. He is a knowledgeable guide and made things fun.
