Prices vary from $30 to $50 an hour, as does
the paddle; most have a set course and start
time, while others are charters for groups of
up to six. “I really love paddling all over the
islands,” says Cohen, “but there is something
special about Waikiki. I know it’s touristy and
can get really crowded, but the guys steering
the boats know what they’re doing and I love to
think back to what it must have been like here
one hundred years ago — same waves, same
water, much different view.”

Take a Swing
With more than 70 courses throughout the
islands, golf has been popular with Hawaii-
bound travelers for more than a century.
Today, the rustic nine-hole Moanalua Golf
Club — Hawaii’s first course, built in 1898
— and Molokai’s nine-hole Ironwood Hills
Golf Course, built in 1928, are still open to
the public. But most golfaholic visitors head
to the brilliant-green-and-blue PGA-worthy
settings shown every year on TV. Even the
most discriminating player can find a challenge on the various courses and hit a few
bucket-list holes at the same time.
