When it comes to spearfishing, Westside Dive and Tackle founder Kris Tyler considers using scuba tanks as cheating. So when he suits up to spearfish, the seasoned outdoorsman plunges 20 feet below the water’s surface, holds his breath in the stillness, and waits: “You become a part of the reef or rock, and you wait for the perfect situation—for the one fish that might give you that really good shot.” A self-described “water baby,” Kris has been swimming and fishing in Hawaii and Florida since childhood. Most of all, he loves the way spearfishing enables him to connect with the underwater universe and partake in a tradition Hawaiians have enriched for generations.
In addition to his spearfishing expeditions, Mr. Tyler totes explorers to his favorite sunken wrecks and lava caverns off the coast of Oahu on scuba-diving charters, and equips them to chart their own expeditions or challenge blowfish to staring contests during scuba-diving certification.
At locations throughout Oahu, Egan's Fit Body Bootcamp instructors, including owner and world champion in multiple sports Egan Inoue, share a common goal: to guide clients toward their fitness and weight-loss goals through regimented training programs. Trainers lead group workouts that integrate cardio with resistance training, strength training, and light alligator wrestling. They design the workouts to be time efficient and varied, avoiding workout plateaus that may leave clients uninspired. In addition to motivating clients to work their bodies, trainers also empower them with healthy eating guidelines.

Thai Kitchen's chefs curate a dynamic menu of customizable entrees suited to a wide variety of cravings. In the curry department, chicken, pork, beef, or seafood careen through a vibrant sauce of the diner's choosing. Noodles, rice, and lemon grass broth, meanwhile, play host to fresh vegetables and meats, such as oxtail and meatballs, while eggplants and whole fish get star billing on plates of their own. At the end of a meal, diners might indulge in Thai tapioca pudding made with coconut milk, or scrapbook their dinner by stitching pages together with rice noodles.
