This is also the peak season for surfing and whale watching making the northern shore of Oahu and Maui islands very popular for honeymooners to disembark and enjoy themselves on the island beaches. Popular islands for visiting tourists are Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui and Hawaii's Big Island. These islands are all networked by two local airlines with inter-connections between islands.
