I usually don’t worry about weather at west Oahu. Rain in Waikiki, cloudy in Honolulu but when we get in west Oahu there is blue sky but today weather forecast says 100% rain at Waianae coast but when we got at west Oahu we saw small blue sky no rain. On the way to Yokohama bay weather wasn’t too bad, cloud made the sacred valley mystical, goddess of rain Anuenue is blessing you when it’s rain in Hawaii.
While we were snorkeling there is finally more sunshine and more blue sky!
Cannot really trust weather forecast in Hawaii so please don’t be too much stressful on your tour day. Maybe going to be fine, maybe rain or cloudy all day but it is what it is, this is your Hawaii no matter what.

Hawaii Real Nature, Hidden West Oahu Tour and Snorkeling.
Unlikely west coast of Oahu Hawaii it has been wet. Look at how green there is! This is greener than in winter time, it is very rare this much colorful green mountain you can see at west Oahu. It is so beautiful.
Mountain is so green, Ocean is so blue, beach and cloud are so white what else you need? Enjoy isolates beaches on west Oahu.
It was good visibility too at snorkeling. We got an Octopus (of course I released it) saw eels, lots of tropical fish, school of goat fish and unicone fish. Hawaiian state fish (Fumufumunukunukuapuaa) and of course Honu the Hawaiian green sea turtle. I can say 90% of time we found them while we are snorkeling at west Oahu tour.
Things to do in Honolulu.
Discover island of Oahu.
I recommend go to circle island in Oahu. Circle island goes to south, east and north of Oahu. These Circle island sightseeing tours about 120 miles drive in Island of Oahu.
Diamond crater, Hanauma bay, makapu look out, blow hole, waimanalo beach, Chinaman’s Hat, Laie, North Shore beaches visit famous North Shore surfing spots of Waimea Bay and Pipeline and stop at the Dole Pineapple Plantation. Most of tour companies stop in North Shore for popular North Shore (Kahuku) shrimp lunch wagon. (garlic shrimp is best.) At North Shore I assume almost all circle island tours stop at North Shore famous turtle beaches. You will see Hawaiian sea turtle sleeping the beaches.
The Hawaiian green sea turtles sometimes come up to the beaches and resting and sleeping so please do not touch or bother the turtles!
There are lots of tour company with Oahu circle island tours. Check carefully where they are going and where they stop. Some of them also going to snorkeling at North Shore turtle beaches. You will see either Hawaiian sea turtle laying on the beach or swimming next to you.
*DO NOT TOUCH OR BOTHER THE SEA TURTLE.

The cave we visit during our Hidden West Oahu tour is more than 150,000 years old once in the water. Kaneana Cave or Makua Cave is one of Hawaii’s ancient sacred sites.
Hawaiian believes this cave is womb of the Earth and has been the site of magic, ritual and religious ceremonies. The area around the cave has been considered sacred and kapu (taboo) by local communities in recent times. This cave is also Pele’s home.
There is a spooky legend with shark man Nanaue goes with this cave.
I get always goose bumps when I go to inside of this cave. We actually found “menehune” foot print in the cave few times. Menehune is people who was/is living in Hawaii way before Polynesian start to live in Hawaii.
Anyway our tour yesterday, three of us including me, eye witnessed this happen in this Hawaiian sacred cave.
There is big rock inside a kaneana cave. There is sometimes ti leafs, cup of water etc on this rock. (The Ti leaf is very sacred to Hawaii.) Three of us looked at that, there is some kind of leafs on there but not ti leafs then one guest and I went to left side of the cave, another guest went to on right side of the cave followed her boy friend. few minutes later we came back to that big rock, I looked at the rock, there is 3 small rocks on it. (see picture below) I thought I didn’t notice these rocks when I looked at first time then the guest who was with me she said “oh my god what are they, they weren’t NOT here before were they??” I was like what?? yea I didn’t see them either. I asked another guest who went to on right side. She also agree she didn’t see these three rocks before.
I knew some kind of spirits are there, maybe Manehune?? What they want to tell us? I do believe they don’t tell us bad things just because. We respect, share water to aina before entering the cave, always pick up trash, do not move anything.
