    The day before the wedding all the guys are going deep-sea fishing - super easy to plan.  For our girls' day I'm having issues!  I had found a wonderful "cultural" tour via boat, but they said they end in May and start back up in December - wedding is in June.  It would have been perfect - hula lessons, lei making, Hawaiian food lunch buffet all in one place.  Sadly, it's not to be.  Beach day too boring, shopping blah, spa we can do any where and researching them most of those packages cost more then the rent of my last apartment! Although, my MOH and I want to do a lomi lomi massage before the wedding - any suggestions there would help too!

     

    Most of the ladies accompanying would not be into an adventure day or a water day. . .We could do the hula lessons at the Waikiki Plaza, but then what?  That's only an hour. . .any ideas from ladies that have been there before?  Like I need one more thing to plan for!!!  HELP!

      Try this website: www.hawaiiplanner.com  It's a tours and activities site that American Express runs.  I talked to them yesterday because they are located inside the Hilton Hawaiian village also, and we are trying to plan a snorkeling trip to Hanauma bay with 60-80 people coming over for my daughter's wedding.  They only use reputable vendors and they make sure that all these companies keep their insurance up to date etc.  There is a ton to choose from!

          I'm having the exact same issues. Boys are deep sea fishing and we are doing hula lessons followed by lunch. Still, want to find something else to do. Cocktails by the pool are always fun, but it would be nice to have an actual activity! I'd love to do a hike or walk, but not everyone is outdoorsy...

           

          I've got my bridesmaids onto it, so I will let you know if they come up with anything!!!!

            Just an FYI Aikane is one of the only deep sea fishing places on Oahu that lets you keep your catch.  That was a big thing for Fi.  He was pretty upset when we read all catches are property of the boat.  So, he did research to find that one.

             

            I really want to do Hula lessons, but what else?  I found this that I'm strongly leaning towards. . .It's on the North Shore where I originally wanted the ceremony, but Fi vetoed:  Kualoa Ranch BEAUTIFUL well, at least from the pictures and stories I've heard lol  You can read here for a description of each of the tours listed.  I think we're doing the hula lessons and the Ocean Voyaging tours:

            Half-Day Kualoa Experience (morning)

            Includes two 1-Hour Tours & Buffet Lunch: Your choice (2) of: Movie Sites & Ranch, Jungle Expedition, Ocean Voyaging, Secret Island (includes Ocean Voyaging Tour and counts as two 1-hour tours), Ancient Fishpond & Gardens, Legends & Legacy, and Hula Lessons. Also includes buffet lunch, discounts on additional same-day tour purchases and is an approximately 7-hour experience door to door from Waikīkī.

            • ADULT $59.00 (plus 4.712% tax. Optional transport from & to WaikÄ«kÄ«, add $10.00 when booking)
            • Child 3-12 $39.00 (plus 4.712% tax. Optional transport from & to WaikÄ«kÄ«, add $10.00 when booking)
            •  Child (2 and under, no activities) FREE!

              Cool!! I'll have to get the boys to check that one out. And those tours at Kualoa sound so cool.  We are meeting up with the boys around 5pm that evening in Waikiki as we are going on the Nahoku 2 catamaran cruise. 90 minutes all you can drink!! http://www.nahokuii.com/

               

              Thanks for the info :)

                lol Tink, I told my Fi we're having practically the same wedding experience just a month apart!  We're also going on Nahoku 2 after our girls/guys day!  Only it'll be just the two of us.  We wanted something to do without everyone else around so we can kinda focus on us right before the wedding.

                  That is too funny!! Really nice idea to do it just the two of you. The week leading up is going to be hectic. Especially with friends and family - so many people to see. I won't have seen my family for one and a half years :-( CAN'T FREAKING WAIT :) :) :)
