  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Volunteers have enjoyed kayaking, snorkeling, learning scuba, and all ocean sports. We often go to the beach with ukuleles, guitars, songs and stories to share the evening sunset. Kaena Point is a nearby hike through a wildlife sanctuary. Dolphins are spotted daily near the house and whales are in season December through April. There are many hikes along the ocean or in the mountains for all abilities. The Polynesian Cultural Center on the North Shore teaches about Pacific island cultures. The tourist center of Waikiki is a 90 minute bus ride away, UBER is popular transportation on Oahu and we are happy to provide a ride into Honolulu when we occasionally go into town. We like in Makaha, "the real Hawaii" and are respectful of nature and culture preservation.
