Extreme Water Sports in Oahu

Extreme Water Sports in Oahu

The warm, shallow waters around Hawaii are perfect for those who crave speed and out-of-your-comfort-zone thrills. Water sport rentals and guided experiences are available to take you to the ocean’s best spots. Here are some of our favorite extreme water sports in Oahu.

  • Climb into a submerged cage and swim with sharks off the North Shore.

  • Learn to surf on Honolulu’s easy breaks, then head to the North Shore and watch the experts ride giants.

  • Zip past the sunbathers on Waikiki Beach atop a personal Jet Ski or grab some friends and get ready to cling for dear life to bumper tubes or a banana boat raft towed behind a speedboat.

  • Explore sunken shipwrecks and coral-crusted sites on an scuba diving adventure day trip. Not scuba certified? Relax and ride below the surface in the protective bubble of a self-propelled underwater scooter.

  • Embrace technology and get your adrenaline pumping as you soar above the waves east of Honolulu using a water-propelled jetpack.

  • Snorkel past octopus, sea turtles, spiny urchins and even reef sharks in the protected preserve at Hanauma Bay.

  • Parasail off iconic Waikiki Beach within view of sunbathers and Diamond Head Crater.
