Getting Around Hawaii

By Team

By Car

To really experience all that Hawaii offers, you should consider renting a car. Reserve your rental vehicles in advance because quantities can be limited on some islands. See what you need to know on our driving tips pages.

By Bus & Shuttles

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.

By Cruise

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.
