Fishing

Fishing is actually something that can be enjoyed year-round in Hawaii. What changes is the types of fish that you can expect to catch — except for sharks, which you can always find. The fall typically sees a lot of billfish, all varieties of marlin, mahi mahi, and giant trevally. If you are hoping to snag marlin, snapper, skipjack, or bigeye tuna, then you want to make sure that you plan your trip during the winter months. You might even be able to spot a whale! A visit during the summer should provide the perfect opportunity to reel in yellowfin, blue marlin, ono, and skipjack.

Discounts

Due to it’s stunningly beautiful landscape and pleasant weather, you can appreciate why Hawaii can be an expensive trip most of the time. If you are looking to get some discounts, then there are a few things you should know. For example, it’s usually best to book your trip early and then try to schedule mid-week flights. Flights on the weekends are more popular, and therefore more expensive. For the cheapest rates on flights and living accommodations, you can expect to find those during the spring and fall months. One exception to the spring rule is the last week of April, which is Gold Week. This is Japan’s peak travel time.

Avoid Crowds

For many people, their vacation is a time to get away from people. With that goal in mind, you should know that while June and July due tend to be less expensive than the winter months, they also tend to be more crowded. Summer is typically when many people travel, as their children tend to be on break from school. The quietest month for tourists is November, with the week of Thanksgiving being the exception. Late spring and early fall are generally the best times of the year to visit the Aloha State if your goal is to avoid as many crowds as possible.

 

Airline Tickets

Airline tickets are probably one of the most expensive aspects of any vacation travel plans, and tickets to Hawaii are no exception. Prices for flights to Hawaii can fluctuate dramatically, especially depending on the time of year. Generally, you should try to book your flight one to four months in advance so that you can take advantage of the best rates. The ideal window for finding deals is approximately six weeks from when you need to travel.
