The Best Time to Visit Hawaii –


  1. A little off topic, but I’ve been watching your previous videos. Would you suggest paid tours on Oahu! This is my second trip, the first time we stayed in Waikiki, Pearl Harbor was as far out as we went. Thank for the info!

  2. Would love a video on top hikes ( overnight or day) in Hawaii! Trying to plan a hiking/camping based trip to Hawaii for next year but so hard to know where to start! Sure there are many people like me looking for a video like this.

  3. Jordan flying down the hallway with Henry like airplanes down the hallway is priceless! Time to queue up a Paul Rudd movie like Forgetting Sarah Marshall or I Love You Man… I should get ready to go to the office. haha. Thanks for the wonderful videos!

    Wait a sec. Forgetting Sarah Marshall was filmed at Turtle Bay and both of you lived on Oahu before. Hmm coincidence? Jordan is Paul Rudd. Paul Rudd is Jordan. I'm starting to make the connection. 😃

  4. Yup, cancel our Maui vacation for October 2021 – after moving it twice. However, we have a vacation booked for Honolulu in March 2022 and rebooked Maui for September 2022😋. We are from Canada and the direct flights in March will make it easier to coordinate testing rather than connecting flights. Hopefully we will not need testing as we get Covid under control 🙏🤞🏻. We are currently fully vaccinated ( I actually have 3 shots as I had a mixed vaccine) but looking for boosters if appropriate at the time of travel. Not giving up on life yet!

  5. Really enjoyed this video, remembering our recent excitement to be going back to Oahu and Maui back in late June/early July this year. Very sad to see the increased Covid numbers and hope everyone stays safe so we can go back to Hawaii again soon. BTW, I may be mistaken, but could Jordan and Erica be working on a surprise for dear Henry soon?!!!

  6. Well, don't think of switching your diving vacation to the Cayman Islands, even after they say they're letting vaccinated travelers in w/o quarantine, their vaccine verification program isn't possible to get anyplace but Great Britain, California, and weirdly enough Louisiana.

  7. Yup this video is making me miss the islands. Love all the islands, but our favorite is Maui. We too canceled our trip, got a trip voucher to use within a year. Can’t wait to visit Maui when it’s a little safe.

  8. I haven't had a vacation in 3 years from being an "essential worker" for most of the pandemic and have plans to visit Maui in January. I really hope things are better by then. I so need this vacation!

  9. Perfect mini vacay! And Omg was there an announcement I missed?! Congrats! 🎉 ❤️ I noticed a little something in the recent clip of Erica and Henry!
