Many visitors also enjoy taking bus tours to conveniently explore the Islands. There’s no need to worry about where to go, just sit back and enjoy the scenery! On Oahu, circle the island on TheBus. On the Big Island, hop on the Hele-On. Shuttles, taxis and public transport are also available on most islands. On Maui, catch the Shopping Express around town.
Taking a cruise is one of the best ways to experience all the islands in a single trip. The Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) cruise ship runs throughout the whole year and stops on all four major islands: Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island.
