Catalina

The few times that I’ve been to Catalina have been unforgettable. There are so many activities to do to fill a adventure seeker’s cravings. For starters, the snorkeling is incredible. There are so many different types¬†of fish creating a rainbow view below the surface. Many times you will even be able to see sharks! There are also some incredible hikes to experience. One morning, I got up with some friends and did a sunrise hike on one of the highest points in Catalina. It is worth every minute earlier that you woke up to see the sun rising over the beautiful ocean. Its the most perfect destination for either a quick day trip or an overnight escape.

Manoa Falls

A beautiful adventure spot in Oahu, Hawaii is Manoa Falls. This is an amazing hike that leads to a powerful and breathtaking waterfall. Over Thanksgiving Break, we went and explored this hike. The hike is located in a rainforest and because of the time of year, there was a downpour when we were there. This, however, made it an even more exciting experience. Because of the pouring rain, the waterfall had an insane amount of force. At the top of the hike, we couldn’t even look directly at the waterfall without being blasted in the face with water. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have been on and I would gladly relive this day. Throughout the hike, you make your way through some rocks and a beautiful scenery of green trees and a river flowing from the falls. The strength and size of thee waterfall depends on what time of year you visit. This would also affect whether or not you can swim in it. The size when we were there did not allow for anyone to enter the water, however, summertime would most likely allow for less rain which would result in smaller falls and the ability to swim in it. This hike is high on my list of recommendations for anyone visiting Oahu!
