This is a solo episode, this is something we're trying new, on Hawaii's Best, we're definitely going to be continuing on doing interview based shows. But today is a little different. And I want to just provide some quick value to you. And I want to get your thoughts on the matter as well. So what I'm going to do is I'm just going to share some of my experiences with you and about the best time to visit Hawaii and some of the trends that I've seen. And I'm going to go through briefly about what the different seasons look like fall winter, spring in summer in Hawaii. I'll be also linking up in the show notes, a blog post that we wrote that kind of coincides with this episode with a little bit further detail as well. And I'd love to hear your comments about what do you think is the best time to visit Hawaii and some of this is subjective and some of this is budget focus, and some of it is experience focus. So we're gonna be covering all that today. On Hawaii's Best. Thanks again for joining us, be sure to hit that subscribe button. And let's dive into this.
Typically January is the wettest month in Hawaii. And December is the coldest June is the driest. And what's cool is that pretty much anytime in the year is like t shirts and board shorts weather you might need like a little light jacket in January but all is good. Probably the most popular time based on statistics to visit Hawaii is probably may you know school is starting to get out people come in to stay throughout the summer. So it's important to decide prior to you coming to Hawaii what you want to do, and to get the most out of your experience because in the winter months, if you're a surfer surf is really great. In the summer months, it's really great for learning how to surf. For example, you go on the North Shore of Oahu waves are ginormous during the winter season. And I definitely don't go out there during the winter. If you're a novice surfer or you're just starting out surfing you definitely don't want to go surfing on the North Shore during the winter months. However, South Shore it's always a good time to learn how to surf Waikiki. But what's really cool is that in the summer months of on the North Shore of Oahu, those waves that were huge and big during the wintertime, that area sunset and everything up there is typically pretty calm. So it really depends on what you're wanting to do and what you're wanting to get out of your Hawaiian trip. In fall. Fall is a great time to go because the summer rush is over, you get a little bit better deals around some of the resorts and activities. There's still plenty to do around the islands like it's not this shutdown, like crowds Get out of the way and and Hawaii stops no like there's still plenty to do during the fall. I love Hawaii in the fall, just because crowds aren't a huge thing and demand is usually lower. So like I said, you can probably get a better deal on combination. So if budget savviness is a thing in your Hawaiian trip, definitely consider After the fall, and when I talk about fall, I'm talking like late September, or even early September, through kind of the middle part of November, when that Thanksgiving and December and Christmas and wintertime starts to come, rates do start to go up. And it's really cool. Just the thought of being in Hawaii during Christmas, you know, 80 degrees out and palm trees is kind of a cool experience. So if you want to do that, it's gonna, it's definitely gonna cost a bit more money to go during that week. Experiencing Christmas was also cool about the winter months in Hawaii. I'm talking about like December, and even through April is whale season and one of the best places to experience whale season is on the west side of Maui, kind of over by Lahaina over there by Molokai II and Lynn I, those are some of the most incredible places to experience the whale watching season. So as the trade winds start picking up in that winter and early year, it's definitely a lot wetter. Until springtime when the trade winds start to recede, and rainy days are fewer, and the sun is almost always out. But the temperatures haven't reached the humid highs, typically of summer. So spring is also another great time to consider if weather is most on your radar. If you're wanting the best weather, I would definitely encourage you to look in either early fall or spring, early spring, those are probably the best times to get almost guaranteed great weather. So as you can see, Hawaii offers something for everyone's tastes and vacation. And the trick to getting the most enjoyment out of your vacation is to plan so it coincides with the best weather conditions for your planned activities and perhaps cheaper ticket prices, or even your tolerance for crowds. So I really hope that these tips really helped you and to get even more a deeper dive into the best times to visit Hawaii, go to live Hawaii's best.com slash best times to visit Hawaii.
