Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Opana Radar Site (in Kawela Bay), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Shark Diving (in Haleiwa). The adventure continues: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour and see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.
