Founded with the goal of curating unique island adventures that promote up-close encounters with local wildlife, Island Water Sports Hawaii facilitates humans’ return to nature with intimate tours and activities. Working out of the Hawaii Kai Marina, Island Water Sports’ passionate staff of boat captains ferries guests out into Maunalua Bay to partake in aquatic adventures including snorkeling. The company’s signature eco-friendly submarine scooters secure riders' heads in clear, bubble-like helmets that draw on the principles of diving bells to safely seal air inside and keep faces dry, comfortable, and breathing easily throughout underwater tours. On boat tours, the balmy sea air tussles the manes of Island Watersports’ skippers as they point out awe-inspiring vistas and wildlife such as humpback whales that migrate to Hawaii from Alaska to nurse, mate, and take their sundresses out of storage.
Windward Watersports, home to one of the only certified kiteboarding schools on Oahu and professional kiteboarder Jeff Tobias, feeds wave-hungry visitors a steady diet of water-sport thrills on kiteboards, sea kayaks, and surfboards. Beginners steam toward an off-shore sandbar to safely launch into a kiteboard lesson with a certified instructor on a two-way radio helping novices navigate the warm crystal waters and grasp the kiteboarding basics, such as how to set up a four-line inflatable kite, kite theory and the wind window, and how to ensure heirloom swimsuits remain in the family using the double-knot technique. Waterbugs wishing to explore the rolling spray via the self-guided kayak eco-tour will take in a host of native coral, birds, turtles, and if lucky, a glimpse of the rare endangered monk seal. Kayak rental also includes paddle, safety vest, and the combination to Davy Jones' locker.
There are many reasons a person might need physical therapy. From postinjury rehab and stroke recovery to arthritis management and sports-performance enhancement, the facilities at PT Hawaii are well equipped to handle a wide range of neuromusculoskeletal maladies. Within the comfort of a private treatment room, massage therapists knead aching muscles and improve range of motion in stiff joints. The reduced gravitational force and bumped-up buoyancy of the 100,000-gallon saltwater AquaCare pool help people improve their Marco Polo technique while protecting injured parts from further damage.

Green hills and blue tidal waves rise from the mural that colors Honolulu Holo Cycling Studio, where cyclists ascend invisible slopes and sprint across imaginary beaches on Spinner Blade bikes. Instead of melting calories outside amid the island’s scorching sun rays, the studio’s patrons breeze through a refreshing, air-conditioned space lined with wall-length mirrors and shiny wooden floors. Seasoned teachers lead this fitness adventure, alerting riders when obstacles such as trees and Jupiter appear on the horizon. Music and videos fuel each revolution of the wheels, filling calves with energy during challenging climbs. To accommodate riders of different sizes, the bikes can be adjusted to fit long or short legs and arms.
Though hammocks hang from the ceilings at The Hang Out, they aren't for dozing. Rather, their soft cloth material serves as both a trapeze and support system for students taking yoga moves off of the mat and into the air. Inversion poses challenge the mind and body during fun, exhilarating workouts that also empty ears of loose change.
Designed by Christopher Harrison with athletes and gymnasts in mind, AntiGravity sessions have since been modified for everyday exercisers. The classes blend elements of dance, yoga, Pilates, and calisthenics to sculpt muscles and help participants get in shape without ever unrolling a mat or touching the ground.
