A sunset cruise is ideal if you’re Hawaii wedding will be a private affair. Sail along the Oahu coastline on a romantic 90-minute cruise on a catamaran, including drinks to celebrate your new life as a couple. Or, if your wedding is a larger affair that includes friends and family, consider a cruise that provides accommodations including a nice dinner and champagne, accompanied by live entertainment.
Love horseback riding? Why not enjoy a romantic trail ride along the beach before taking in the magnificent Hawaiian sunset? Another option is to ride through the countryside as you enjoy the beautiful forests, mountains, and amazing views of the ocean.
Oahu offers you and your new husband/wife some amazing opportunities to swim with dolphins, whether you choose the 26,000 foot lagoon at Kahala Hotel & Resort or Sea Life Park Hawaii. Kayak, play with the dolphins or ride on their bellies or dorsal fins, and participate in a photo session that will provide you with pictures that will bring back wonderful memories decades from now.

If you marry during winter months, Turtle Bay is where you can experience humpback whales.
Of course, you can always just lay on the beach and relax, or enjoy Oahu’s lively nightlife scene. Whatever you choose, you’re sure to have a great time following your wedding.
