New Years arrives with several fireworks celebrations around Oahu. Whether you want to enjoy a quiet romantic dinner before watching the colors explode in the sky or party under the light of the fireworks until the sun comes up, the shows are Honolulu's way of ushering in the New Year. The big show is offshore from Waikiki and can be seen up into the hills behind Honolulu. Depending on the year, other fireworks go off from Kakaako, and KoOlina.

Sea Legs for Sailing
Sailors can find their place at sea in Hawaii by renting their own sail boat for a day or allowing someone else to do the work and joining one of the many charters that explore the sea each day.
During whale season (January to March and October to November) sailors may be treated to a show. Whales particularly enjoy the waters between Oahu and Molokai.
