We are excited to show y’all our newest video about our adventures on Oahu.

Bob worked really hard to capture the spirit of the island and each person we met that truly made our experience one of a kind. It’s easy to see why we fell in love with Oahu- the people, the land, the activities- each moment was better than the last.

Our favorite spots:

CLIMB Works Zip Line (awesome adventure zip line and ropes course)

Sharks Cove (great beachside snorkeling and diving)

Waimea Bay Beach (cliff jumping, surfing and swimming)

Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve (snorkeling)

Waikiki Beach Services- Outrigger canoe lessons

Friends of Malaekahana (beachside cabins)

Behind the process: Whenever we set out to create a video, we research like crazy before we even get to the destination. We look for other videos online to see how the sight photographs and any hidden (ish) gems we might want to feature. Then I put all the locations into a map service and plot out our course. Sometimes we have it all planned out and other times are more ‘fly by the seat of our lens’ kind of shoots. This was a little of both. We had planned out a lot of the trip but once we arrived on Oahu and set out on these adventures ourselves, some new places popped up and others didn’t make the final cut.

Spending 5 days on Oahu definitely wasn’t enough. Even though I planned out our itinerary minute to minute to ensure we would and could do as much as possible, there still are things on my list that I’ll have to do when I get back there. Have you been to Oahu before? Did your favorite make our list?

We filmed this in partnership with Travel Mindset and the Oahu Tourism Board
