Jules and Brock said adiós to sunny San Diego and aloha to Hawaii for the last portion of their trip! First they started in Oahu where they explored its famous landmarks, including Pearl Harbor, and took part in some adventurous activities.

Day 1

Pearl Harbor

Pearl Harbor was the site of the December 7, 1941 bombing that pulled the United States into World War II. Now it still serves as a Navy base, but the memorial sites also attract visitors.

Oahu Sunset Dinner Cruise

After learning about some of the history of the island, the team took an Oahu Sunset Dinner Cruise that included a 5-course dinner and Hawaiian show and dancing, plus great views of the coastline.

Day 2

Hanauma Bay Snorkeling

On a Hanauma Bay Snorkeling Adventure Half-Day Tour, Brock and Jules got to tour one of the most popular natural attractions in the world! Hanauma Bay is in the sunken caldera of an extinct volcano, with famously clear waters that make snorkeling a perfect activity.
