With Flavor of Hawaii Culinary Adventures, tourists and locals can experience the culture and unique flavors of Hawaii at the same time. Its walking tour explores a variety of restaurants in Kailua or Waikiki, allowing diners to sample different dishes and interact with an award-winning chef.

Oahu endears itself to both visitors and locals with its truly breathtaking scenery. The Ko'olau Mountain Range slopes across the island with rolling green hills and steep peaks that overlook Kailua Bay. Off the sandy shore, the ocean plays host to an array of aquatic wildlife, such as sea turtles, dolphins, exotic fish, and kayakers. The last of these creatures comes from Twogood Kayaks, whose trained naturalists lead tours through the area's brilliant turquoise waters and offshore islets filled with natural coves and 12 species of seabirds.
In addition to garnering a reputation for making and selling some of the swiftest kayaks over the past 30 years, the staffers also train the next generation of competitors during camps and clinics.
Though he earned a Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences from the University of California San Diego, Matt Zimmerman decided to pursue his love of the ocean instead of science and move to Oahu. He founded Island Divers Hawaii there as a way to share his enthusiasm for scuba diving as well as the discoveries it can share, from intricate coral to schools of fish locked in a never-ending struggle for tenure. Zimmerman and his knowledgeable staff teach dive courses for curious students and lead boat charters that give divers the chance to test their new skills in pristine waters.
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.

Doctor of Chiropractic Jake Simmons and massage therapist Jane Fee both suffered from car accidents in their youth. While Dr. Simmons made a full recovery with chiropractic care, learning firsthand the benefits of drug-free, holistic techniques, Jane put off treatment for two years. Thirty years later, she still feels pain from the accident and uses this experience to stress the importance of seeking immediate treatment.
As a chiropractor for both Oahu Family Chiropractic and Brigham Young University–Hawaii’s athletic team, Dr. Simmons emphasizes the importance of motion. He keeps spines and joints fully functional in high-performance athletes as well as children and seniors. Jane complements his gentle adjustments with massage therapy. During sessions, a heated table and heat packs wrap clients in radiating waves of warmth, and essential oils suffuse the air with relaxing scents extracted from plants.
